Norman Bates have just completed their global campaign for HTC through 171. With 'Turnaround' they shot over 4 days in Shanghai. Utilising some of the city's grittier locations, finding themselves in abandoned warehouses, tower blocks and up high on rooftops.

After Shanghai they set off for the Barrandov Studios, in Prague to shoot 'Subway'. For this the team built a subway carriage from scratch and used the lighting rig to give the impression of motion on the train. With a slightly different feel to 'Turnaround' this film mixes the real with the surreal in a smart blend of casting and content. See how the films turned out here.

Greg Brunkalla & Stinkdigital gave East London shoppers the surprise of their lives by turning a local shop into a giant musical experience. Every time a customer picked up a Red Stripe a rock steady tune of “A Message to You Rudy” would start to play. Nothing was faked. Each 'instrument' was individually wired up and placed on the shelves in order to blend in with other items in the shop, and all the sounds heard are created by instruments made from typical corner shop products.
Stink received several honours at the BTAA Craft Awards.
We would like to thank and congratulate everyone who was involved in the making of these films

The first offering from the newly opened Stink Sao Paulo comes in the guise of “Pet Shop”, part of the new campaign for Trident Fresh.

Nieto's powerful new spot was created to highlight a campaign for the UN to open a supervised investigation into events on the 4th August 2006, when in the midst of civil war, many civilians, including 17 aid workers of Action against Hunger (ACF), were killed in Sri Lanka. Nieto collaborated with Professor Xavou, one of the best graphic artists in Paris, to create the entire animation and compositing, starting by making stock footage of blood spreading out on a t-shirt they played with gravity and fluidity to create conceptual shapes and contrasting fluid movements. All of these abstract pieces were then put together into something figurative. It took about a month to complete the project.
With its successful launch over two nights during commercial breaks in the X Factor, Mercedes #Youdrive, directed by Yann Demange is now live on http://www.youtube.com/youdrive for viewers to piece together their own experience.

The films were shot over the course of 8 days in Lisbon and Porto with a team that included DOP Anthony Dod Mantle (Slumdog Millionaire, Dredd 3D). The 3-part story will be shown this weekend during the commercial break in the X Factor.
Shot through Adam & Eve DDB, Christian Bevilacqua's spot for YouView brings together a collage of TV favourites including Gary Barlow, Benedict Cumberbatch and even some Daleks. The team attempted to capture as much in-camera as they could, using a projection light to help cast true light onto the buildings and create real moving shadows giving a true sense of film light upon the building surfaces.
We would like to congratulate Adam Berg and all of the team that worked on the 'Homes within Homes' commercial for TalkTalk, which picked up a Yellow Pencil at D&AD's 50th anniversary celebrations.

'Anne Cassidy feels compelled to heap praise on the latest Stella Artois spot by Mother: "This 'smooth outcome' campaign has been lounging around stylishly for some time now. But the work seems to be improving each time. This spot is particularly well exectuted, with a lighter touch than some of its predecessors. The film follows a man's transformation from greasy labourer to sharp-suited smoothie with the help of Stella. The pacing is spot-on." It was directed by Agustin Alberdi through Stink'
