Following last year’s success, thenetworkone and BWM return to Cannes this year with an all-new ‘Independent agency showcase’.
Julian Boulding, Founder of thenetworkone and Rob Belgiovane, Executive Creative Director of Australia’s leading independent agency BWM, will provide brief keynotes on how the independents continue to rattle the cages of the traditional networks, and attract major multinational advertisers prepared to ‘think differently’.
This year Jon Kamen, a prominent member of the Titanium Lions jury, will also contribute a challenging and provocative perspective on the agency scene.
Kamen is Chairman and CEO of @radical.media, a unique, global, multiplatform content company. In addition to producing award-winning commercials – two Cannes Palme d’ Or awards as well as numerous D&AD and One Show pencils and Clio and Art Directors’ Club medals – the company is known for its success in feature films, including the Academy Award winning ‘The Fog of War’; television programmes including the Emmy winning series ‘10 Days that Unexpectedly Changed America’; music programming including the Grammy winning ‘Concert for George’; photography; graphic and interactive design; and the emerging field of branded content.
Then there will be the chance to hear two of the leading independent agencies at Cannes Lions 2007 present their work. Last year, the seminar featured BWM’s own work for Telstra Bigpond, and 180 Amsterdam presenting their work for Adidas, Cannes Lions Advertiser of the Year in 2006.
This year’s selection will have a strong element of branded content and other non-traditional media.
Following the seminar there will be an informal drinks reception where participants can meet and mingle with some of the leading independent agencies at Cannes 2007.
