OMG! See my Muddy Awards ad!

Hmmm, you’ve reached an older feature - let’s get you up to date! Read our latest features here.

What every Awards need – the oxygen of publicity!

Check out my little ad for the Muddy Awards below – you’ll laugh I promise.

Believe it or not, this ad was made entirely by students at Buckinghamshire New University. Meh, who needs to go to a London agency to make a decent ad?! Mr Muddy wrote a brief (for tis his area of expertise), I presented the brief to the third year advertising course students and they went off to work up some creative ideas.

From a pool of nine or ten pitches, we loved this one the best – congratulations to those clever clogs and all round good eggs Michael Phillips and Alex Dew. They duly took the reins, and gathered up a red hot crew of cameramen (Mitchell Green-Muid and Chris Grundy) and sound guy (Josh Reid) plus enough equipment to film a Hollywood action movie, and we spent all last Wednesday shooting two ads – the first of which is here for your delectation, and the second of which I’ll show tomorrow, because I’m a tease like that.

Please pleasy please send this ad on to anyone you think might enjoy it or who would benefit from entering the Award, and most of all have fun watching it!

Hero x

PS A massive thank you to Bucks Uni and the immensely talented students – I bow to your genius.
