Some Great Commercials For Valentine’s Day

For Valentines, spend some time
with something you REALLY love: great ads

If you love ads, it’s not who you love it’s what you love. And we know you really love good work. Get cozy with Rethink & Molson’s “The Canadians” – a valentine from the world to the people of Canada. Lowe Roche and client Heart & Stroke present a compelling reason why the time to show yourself some love is now. Not later. It wouldn’t be Valentine’s Day without some fresh meat in this clever spot from Red Urban and Volkswagen. And it’s not exactly hearts and flowers between two motorists as Blammo Worldwide and Project Winter Survival reminds us to share the warmth this winter.

Editor Mick Griffin honoured with Fritz Spiess Award

Congratulations Rooster Post Production senior editor/partner Mick Griffin
on being honoured with the Spiess Award for Lifetime Achievement in Television Advertising at last week’s 2012 Bessies Awards. The Spiess Award is given to a person who has furthered the excellence of TV advertising in Canada throughout their career. The award is presented to a cameraperson, director, producer, editor, compositor, art director, copywriter, creative director, advertiser or anyone in the TV advertising community whose contributions have been continuing and of the highest order.

Here’s a look at the announcement film that preceded the presentation – it was written and directed by Rooster Post Production colleague and 1998 Spiess Award recipient, Richard Unruh . According to Mick, “It’s a wonderfully concise and illuminating little film, it makes what I do seem magical and important.”
