Johannesburg

Ponte Tower, by Philip Bloom

Philip Bloom has released a new short documentary on Vimeo. The film focuses on Ponte Tower in Johannesburg, South Africa, and captures the feeling of the haunting structure, with beautiful cinematography and editing. The film was shot on the new Black Magic cinema camera with time lapse sequences being shot on a Canon 5D Mk II.

This Ain’t No Hallmark Sentiment.

Sometimes it takes a bit of in your face, tongue and cheek humor to make a point with your advertising. This clever little print ad comes to us from Johannesburg South Africa. With a fairly direct headline, it cleverly plays off of A: the correct term for a female dog, and B: completely gets your attention thanks to the pink color pallet and timing the release directly to Mother’s Day. I love it.
