What a nice 20” this would make! The first half of this TVC for Johannesburg’s newest rapid rail transport system is spellbinding. It is inviting and commanding while showing off personality and character as it dances across faces and through hair. I think it gets a little bit carried away though and the more it does, the less memorable it is. The cheesy grins take over honest smiles and the flying dog? Well, who can say?
Too much is just too much. 25 seconds less in this case would have been a commercial novella – at just the right length! Not faulting the way the story is being told, shot or directed, but maybe the second half should have been left for the “making-of” reel.
What do you think?
