Back in the days before your "TV set"
went to heaven, people used to have this piece of furniture in their houses called a "television." On it, in the
words of Mr. Jules "Great Vengeance, Furious Anger and All That" Winfield , they would "show shows." Between
these shows were commercials you could neither fast-forward over NOR adblock. Nuts, right?
The "Silly Faces" spot for Colorforms deserves a brief explanation. I started as the writer. Ended up as also the
director. And assistant Art Director. And actor. Not once, but twice (I am two of the 4 actors you'll see.) All for about
$10,000. It went on to win a "Gold Marble" award -- a show judged entirely by kids.
COLORFORMS :30 "silly faces"
The "Digital Island" spot was a quickie I created from stock footage on 2 weeks' notice, but the effect of my brother
Jonno's music (written on 2 DAYS notice) sure makes it seem epic. At least, that's what I think.
