We Are Plus has been the production company of note for MAC Cosmetic's branding video for the last seven years and have amassed quiet the portfolio of work for the brand. This piece, "d'Bohemia" speaks to me with it's vintage sea side holiday aesthetic, i love the postcard writing that leads you through the story, and the subtle animation used to bring the vignettes to life.

The second is this Nike spot appropriately called "Human Chain" from director Brian Beletic of smuggler and VFX from MassMarket. it reminds me a bit of one of my all time favorite spots, "What Goes Around Comes Around" could be why i enjoy it so much. I do love the visual of needing a team of yourself to accomplish your goals, it makes me think of countless training sessions, trial runs, failed attempts and the repetition required to become a champion.

To start it off, i found this spot for BBC Olympic coverage from AKA and thought it was a must see.
These spots for Diet Coke, directed by Pistachios via Blacklist and W+K are so simple, but i've been really drawn to the simple lately, with so much photoreal, and VFX skill a sweetly animated line drawing is what i find cuts through the clutter to reach me.
Honda Crosstour, i love these throwback animated spots from director Andy Hall of Elastic, though the campaign began late last year the spots are all over the Olympic coverage.
Visa "Julia Manscuso" , a lot of the Visa Go World spots are fantastic for different reasons, (the Dan Jansen spot makes me misty every time i see it) but i love the minimal hand made feel the brand went with for this animated story of drive and accomplishment.

as an art department girl i just love this stuff, a project where each step is a new problem to solve with a skill that you will probably never need again - but it looks so good, doesn't it?
