Thibedi’s comment: ‘This ad sold me on these shoes in the first minute. And when they started unselling the shoes I wanted to give them all my money. It’s brilliantly done. Its steady pace and the contemplative inner voice of the main character give it a daydream feeling that makes it very enjoyable to watch.’

Trevor’s comment: ‘This is such a beautifully constructed spot and it really comes together in the way it was edited. So often longer ads can become indulgent without the discipline of 30 seconds. But this edit has a beautiful momentum that never wastes a moment. The tone and pace and flow with the music, the timing and performance selection, all great choices.’

Judge’s comment: “A close contender for Best in Craft as all aspects were of such a high standard. It loses its way a bit in the middle, a trap we perhaps fall into when duration is not an issue and we become a tad indulgent. However, the performance, cinematography and edit work hand in hand to deliver on this emotional story. The music is handled well around the narration and while perhaps a little expected, still lends well to the mood. Congratulations to all on the hard work apparent in this piece.”
