20 February 2012

MATTHÄUS BUSSMANN JOINS STAMP

Stamp is thrilled to welcome commercials director Matthäus Bussmann into the fold. Hailing from Frankfurt, Matthäus is a hugely accomplished director, with over 150 commercials to his name!  A seasoned production talent, he brings a wealth of experience to the table, regularly working with major brands like Sony Ericsson, Reebok, Volkswagen, Bayer and Sears.  He also brings a keen eye for assured visuals and powerful performances; naturally, we are extremely happy to have him on board.

JORDAN BAHAT GETS TWISTED

Now here’s an original idea for a campaign.  Jordan Bahat‘s latest project is a commercial for popular video game franchise Twisted Metal– with a difference. Featuring the game’s director David Jaffe, the spot offers fans the chance to shoot a fully automatic machine gun at an ice cream truck, remotely from their computers.  For two days, 100,000 bullets can be fired by anyone with an internet connection.

It’s a superb concept that plays well to the trigger-happy gaming audience, and the teaser looks stunning.  Jordan will be returning to Nevada next week to shoot a Sony-branded documentary about the user-controlled machine gun – keep your eyes posted for that.


NEW DOCUMENTARY AD FROM DOUG PRAY

Stamp director Doug Pray has been hard at work completing a heartwarming new film for Mars.  Working with agency BBDO Toronto, Doug has just delivered a 30-second commercial and 5-minute web film for the chocolate brand, documenting an isolated village community and their modest hockey arena. Grand Manan’s local hockey rink is a vital pillar of the community, but the seating area is as cold as the ice rink.  So Mars steps in to sponsor a much-needed heated mezzanine. Naturally, the whole community pitches in with the construction.

“I was attracted to the script because it was real,” Doug says. “Mars really did make an important donation to the community and the community really did appreciate it. I also enjoy working with real communities on big projects like this because, for them, it’s exciting and their enthusiasm helps inspire our work.”

This is vintage Pray – a beautifully-filmed documentary piece with a resolutely human edge.


CLEMENS & COMMINS JOIN STAMP

We are very happy to welcome Helen Clemens & Peter Commins into the Stamp flock, for representation in the UK. The talented pair have been regular collaborators for many years, working in a variety of different mediums, but this year they finally cement their creative partnership under a single banner.  Their visual arts background lends their work a carefully tuned aesthetic and a capacity to create mind-expanding worlds for the viewer. We’re terrifically excited to have this imaginative pair join us and we heartily look forward to their future work.
