    Calling Attendance

    The film had to pack an emotional punch to cut through.
    It also had to work across many different cultures, languages and regions, because our audience was a group of disparate world leaders.
    We hit upon a device that is recognized everywhere - the school roll call, where a teacher reads out kids names in the classroom. But when the children answer ‘here’, they’re in horrifying places.

    Holiday: Saving Simon

    A story that feels like a charming holiday children’s book, brought to life through the lens of iPhone 13 Pro. When a little girl sees that her snowman is melting at the end of winter, she rushes to save him and puts him in her family’s freezer, to keep him going through the warmer months. Over the next 12 months she saves the snowman from all manner of disasters. Finally winter comes, she and her family bring the little snowman outside and plant him at the end of their walkway. That’s when a little kid who rides his bike by their house accidentally pulverizes the poor little snowman to powder. Just when we think all is lost, her family rallies around her, scooping up pieces to rebuild him. She’s kept the holiday spirit alive all year, and it’s changed them.

    How Homemade is Made

    A film that imagines what would happen if someone exploited a sweet, innocent mom’s signature homemade short ribs and sold them on a mass scale. This classic tale unfolds in a dreamlike narrative that wildly escalates before returning to reality, where it reiterates that no one can deliver your mom’s short ribs?that’s why Instacart just delivers the ingredients.

    Keep on Fallin’

    It turns out that one out of three clumsy French people doesn’t necessarily think of bringing their smartphone to a repair shop when it’s damaged. That is an incredibly low number, especially when you know that extending the life of a smartphone by one single year reduces its carbon footprint by 30%.

    That’s why Bouygues Telecom, the French telco, has created Sustainable Smartphone Solutions for its clients to extend the lives of their smartphones. It is a program built around four propositions: trade-in, recycling, refurbished smartphones, and repair. Any Bouygues Telecom subscriber will be able to repair its smartphone at a discount rate up to two times per year.
