An Ad Director Writes


It was the Oscars last night. A place where many ad directors hope to end up walking on stage. Sadly, none did this time.

But despite the cliche definition of a commercials director - person who can snort a line of coke thicker than their ponytail - most of them do actually care very deeply about film.

A director called Wayne writes an interesting blog.

My favourite post is his most recent one, a very astute critique of the film Babel.

Wayne totally nails the film's lack of emotional truth.

Sorry, Brad.

Wayne's blog's great.

I was a bit suprized Children of Men didn't take the Cinematography category.
