I still can’t quite believe it yet, but my children, Joseph and Amelia have gone viral, with their inclusion in the latest Google Chromebook Ad campaign (4 sec’s into the Ad) which aired in the UK on Saturday 17th Nov 2012. In media ad slots during primetime TV, during shows like The X-Factor and I’m a Celebrity, get me out of here!
And it’s all down to the power of Vimeo that the clip was found by STALKR, a creative collective of independent filmmakers and archive experts working globally from London who approached me with the view to using the clip in an unnamed project, which later turns out to be on behalf of ‘Bartle Bogle Hegarty’ http://www.bartleboglehegarty.com, one of the world’s leading advertising agencies, to use the clip of them playing boules at my mother-in-law’s house in France.
The clip was originally shot whilst on holiday in France this summer and featured in my film “En Vacances’, which you can watch by clicking on the link.
