All that jazz and so much more.
When the Ottawa International Jazz Festival, one of Canada's premier music events, was marking its 30th anniversary it was looking for a creative 30-second television ad to promote itself. We didn't want to do one commercial, we wanted to design a full campaign. Our bold, and much talked about approach, consisted of a series of 5 X 15-second commercial shorts. Surprise-factor driven, the spots reinforced the Jazz Festival through a series of clever "wordplay" ads. We took well-known jazz phrases and presented them in series of backdrops that initially didn't make any immediate connection to the festival until the very end of each spot.
