CANAL+ is the leading French cable-network, known for creating wildly popular original content like the series Spiral, The Young Pope, Versailles and The Bureau, but also for its implication in and support of French cinema production.
But their creativity shone this time in an ad for their new signature “CANAL+ CREATES”, in which they take us on a mad journey through the mind of a talented screenwriter as he’s writing a script for CANAL+. The ad takes on the unprecedented task of illustrating the genesis of an idea, how it starts as a little flame that grows bigger and bigger as it dashes through the brain and picks up elements on the way.
The film is masterfully crafted, under direction by Ivan Grbovic, and to a dramatic Russian military music soundtrack. The cinematic ad stays true to the entertainment promise of CANAL+, featuring the signature style of Stéphane Xiberras, BETC Paris CCO and President, who was the Creative Director behind the new campaign.
Stéphane, who has been in charge of the CANAL+ account for over 15 years says: “People who watch our ads for Canal+ often ask me: ‘talking bears, unicorn balls, 80-year old Spitfire pilots.. Where do you get it all from?’ The answer is ‘from inside our heads’, and that’s the whole theme of this film, to show the process of how an idea is born, the mysterious ways in which our minds associate one bizarre element to another. I was really excited about the visual challenge of the script, how to show the inside of a brain, while avoiding the usual clichés. I have actually learnt that it takes a lot of imagination in order to illustrate the imagination!”
