And speaking of inspirational hair product commercials...

-albeit for different reasons. This series of atmospheric and mythical Thermasilk ads were done by the insanely talented French commercial director Bruno Aveillan. I have loved every thing I've seen him do. Such completely engrossing visuals - telling entire tales and building complex worlds in such a short period of time. Complete with super models...

This one feels like the visual love-child of Phantom of the Opera and Sweeney Todd:


Fairy tale..


Faery:


This is a low-res version, but it has always seemed like the *perfect* ad to me. Such great imagery, music and edited so tightly:


Here is a longer, higher res version of the same. Again, great visuals, but not as much punch as the shorter one:

Wow - it's hard to say which I like the best!

Oh, and the fact that you even know of French commercial directors (I sure didn't!) makes you even more tres cool in my books:)

How do you find these things?

Heh - I fell in love with this ad campaign when it first aired starting back in 2000-2001 I believe. I looked up the director back then - hoping that he was also directing fantasy/period movies, since these were so fabulous. (As far as I can tell, that is not the case - darn!) He does continue to direct breath-taking, award winning commercials - as I will demonstrate in a follow-up post.

These are wonderful! What a shame he isn't making movies.
I especially like the firefly one!
Thanks for sharing and giving me inspiration this morning. x
