Cornetto | Enjoy The Ride
Grand Jury Prize Winner in a crowdsourced Ad campaign for Cornetto brand, hosted by eYeka.
My favourite project I worked on because of the fun story behind. Basically, when I was visiting my back then girlfriend in Britanny, France, I found out about this competition held by Cornetto.
I came up with this robbery-turned-romance fable in course of a few days, I pitched it to a few newly made friends in France and they were excited enough to take part in the shoot dabbling both as actors and assistants during the shoot. We managed to get even friend’s vintage Citroen 2CV (“deux chevaux”) for added production value. We shot everything in course of two days, with absolutely minimal resources, in an improvised crew of 3-4 people dabbling in multiple roles. I even composed music simply by recording myself playing an old-school accordion.
Our budget was barely 20 Euro, that was mainly covering crepes for lunch in a local restaurant. The video won the Grand Jury Prize.
