Following his appearance at October's CraftWorks, legendary director Roger Woodburn was joined in the String & Tins studio by the equally legendary Peter Webb to talk about the foundation of Park Village, one of the most iconic names in film production.
Ask and you shall receive, says this entertaining Google Pixel ad. An initial “What is that?” sparks a two-minute Q&A session. The corporation’s flagship smartphone receives a thorough grilling - luckily, Google Assistant and a composed narrator have all the answers.
It’s an eclectic focus group. From Dua Lipa to Michael Fish, from David LaChapelle to, er, Salt Bae (he likes salt, apparently). Those familiar with their YouTube influencers will enjoy each cameo.
Director Ian Pons Jewell and editor Leo King manage proceedings well. Unlike the Pixel's 2016 launch film this is packed with personality.
The audio is equally boisterous. ‘Papa’s Got A Brand New Bag’ drowns out some dialogue, but it doesn’t detract from a lively production.

This ad for Google's Pixel smartphone is confusing because, well, it's just not as good as their last one. Despite being presented in exactly the same style (white text tiles interspersed with close-ups of the new phone), they've chosen to replace the somewhat witty and informative text with reviews. Will a one-line summary from Esquire or Wired pique our interest? It seems unlikely.
Google's new Pixel smartphone looks impressive in this simple, slick ad which touts all its bells and whistles, including unlimited storage space plus 'a blue so blue' they created it from scratch. The ad also includes a less than subtle dig at Apple's insane decision to get rid of the headphone jack on the iPhone by emphasising that Pixel will fit your existing earbuds... shots fired.
Google probably couldn't have chosen a better time to launch their new Pixel phone. With Apple's fanbase struggling to rationalise the tech giant's decision to remove the headphone socket from its latest phones and Samsung's latest model proving surprisingly toasty, the opportunity is there. But this is a surprisingly humdrum effort and doesn't really fill us with excitement.
