I like this a lot. Dubliner William Armstrong has had his first test ad shortlisted for the Cannes Lions Young Director Award, which is announced this week.”It’s 60 seconds, produced for €0, ‘a car ad without a car’.”

Did you know the Rome video you posted [above]was created by an Irish company? We’re Noho and we specialise in video, motion graphics and 3D, particularly historical and cultural content. We worked with Bernie Frischer and the folks at Rome Reborn for several months to update and add animations to their original model of Rome; it was a lot of work, but we’re delighted with the results! The footage is now part of an exhibition touring around Europe. We’ve got an interactive DVD and iPad app in the works for later this year too.
