"Car"
In this :30 spot, the camera looks through the window on the passenger side of a car, showing us a thief breaking into the vehicle. He appears to be an experienced professional. Effortlessly he uses a universal jimmy to unlock the driver-side door. Unperturbed by the blaring car alarm, he slides...

Driven By Denim: Director Jonnie Ross
By the seat of your pants" is an expression that filmmaker Jonnie Ross takes to a new visual plane in this spec spot done while he was a student at the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, Calif. In the piece—titled "The Jumps"—a young guy wearing blue jeans enters the frame to stand in the...

"Sick"
This black-and-white :30 opens on a little girl standing in an urban playground; in the background other kids are running and playing hopscotch.

Heaven Can Wait—If You Drive An Audi
Consider being called to the great hereafter before it's truly your time.

We view the interior of a posh, upscale restaurant, while a voiceover asks, "Are your washer and dryer wasting your money?"

Rod Cannot Reel In The Prize Catch
Consider the predicament of foosball players. Bound to a steel rod, their maneuverability is limited. They are prisoners on a tabletop field of plastic green. In this case, the table is in what appears to be a dormitory recreation room. However, for a fleeting moment—even with their rod-impaled...

"Masterpiece"
We're at what looks like the last gas station in the middle of nowhere. A beat-up clunker of an automobile pulls in for some much-needed maintenance. This old boat of a car not only needs a fill-up but also a wash—but the driver will settle for a clean windshield. The windshield is caked with dead...

"In Your Face": An Unguardable Player
We're outdoors, presumably during a time-out on the sidelines of a pick-up game of basketball. Three teammates have huddled to discuss their opponent. Forget about strategizing. This trio has virtually given up, already talking as if they're trying to defend against the second coming of Michael...

"How To Speak Millionaire"
Winning the lottery isn't all it's cracked up to be. One must make numerous adjustments. New responsibilities go with the wealth.

The Price Of A "Second Opinion" Multiplies
Clearly, there's a pressing need for the much-publicized patients' bill of rights. But overlooked in the political firestorm surrounding that proposed legislation is the urgent need for a similar bill covering veterinarians and their patients. Healthcare for animals can be expensive. The problem...
