Dark Days (2000, 94 min., Dir Marc Singer)
Winner of 3 awards at the 2000 Sundance Film Festival
From The Guardian: “Singer’s subject is the community of lost souls living in the underground tunnels beneath Penn Station, in New York. They have erected plasterboard partitions, and ingeniously managed to reroute electricity to their homemade shacks, though there is no running water. They can be very houseproud. It is safer down in their subterranean shantytown than being homeless on ground level, but for me a second viewing disclosed even more clearly the un-bohemian horror of actually existing down there, having almost literally fallen through the cracks. In the darkness, their faces loom like lost souls in purgatory: in daylight, they look quite different and more human.”
In a bit of outside-the-box marketing (okay, way more than a bit), Audi has collaborated with the team behind the upcoming blockbuster Fifty Shades of Grey to produce a hilariously-awkward comedy sketch, which self-awarely parodies the notorious, superfluously sexual reputation of both the Fifty Shades film and the bestselling book it’s based on.
Audi, whose cars will appear in Fifty Shades of Grey under a much sexier light, sponsored this viral video starring Saturday Night Live’s Vanessa Bayer as a Fifty Shades fan on an elevator, all too eager to find someone to reenact scenes in the film with, making the men (and women) who share the elevator with her verrrrrry uncomfortable in the process. The clip was the brainchild of the agency Venables Bell & Partners. Fifty Shades of Grey releases worldwide on Valentine’s Day.
We here at P.I.G. have also collaborated with Audi, for a TV Spot that is as sleek and extravagant, if not as risque, as anything in the world of Mr. Christian Grey. Check it out here!
The action-packed Transporter film franchise is getting a reboot, and P.I.G.-repped director Camille Delamarre is directing the first in a new trilogy of films! The first installment of the Transporter reboot, The Transporter Legacy, will see newcomer Ed Skrein replacing Jason Statham in the role of skilled illegal goods transporter Frank Martin. Luc Besson, who also wrote and produced the original Transporter trilogy, will produce the new film series. Camille is a protégé of Besson’s, and his friends here at P.I.G. are both proud of him and eagerly anticipating this exciting reboot. The Transporter Legacy will have its worldwide release in June.
We are excited to announce that we’re now representing Argentinian director, Marcelo Burgos. Not only is Marcelo a director, but he’s also an illustrator, animator, printer, sculptor and former agency creative. Before turning his craft to directing, Marcelo worked since he was 18 years old in Argentina and Madrid at agencies such as Ogilvy and BDDP, winning over 70 advertising awards for his campaigns. Now as a director, Marcelo can adeptly handle the visual challenges of directing special effects and detailed set pieces as well as perfectly execute scenes of comedy. His talents converge for these humorous ads for PS3 and Coke Light. We here at P.I.G. can’t wait to create more visually rewarding and comedic work with Marcelo here in China, where he will be exclusively repped (and inclusively befriended) by us.
You Must Know More About Marcelo!
We mentioned that in addition to directing TV commercials, Marcelo also involves himself in several other artistic pursuits. It would be criminal to share Marcelo’s TVCs and not show you the very cool sculptures, drawings, prints, animations and toys he has made outside of his filmmaking career. Visit MarceloBurgos.com and check out some of the eye-popping visuals that clearly spans across several mediums. On the site you’ll also find Marcelo’s more poignant work for Samsung, his handmade toys, a game he made as a gift for his daughter, and even a unique font that Marcelo designed for you to freely download and use. See why we love this guy?
