Two Clio finalists for Egg and Humanoid
This year, South Africa has two finalists at the Clio Awards in the TV/Cinema/Digital category, both courtesy of Egg Films and Humanoid.
Conceptualised by Singh and Sons and directed by Humanoid's Terence Neale, Texa 'Bow', 'Hug' and 'Fist Pump' form a campaign of three humorous spots for Pharma Dynamics.
The second spot vying for one of the coveted awards is the honest portrayal of AIDS sufferer 'Selinah', in a commercial for the Topsy Foundation conceptualised by Ogilvy Johannesburg and directed by Kim Geldenhuys. The spot highlights the recovery of a real AIDS sufferer, shot over 90 days and edited down into a 90-second spot.
The 51st annual Clio Awards will be held on the 26th and 27th of May in New York City.
