Frederic Planchon of Anonymous content directed this GE spot titled “Beautiful Law” for BBDO New York. The work was inspired in part by the First Law of Thermodynamics--the fact that energy cannot be created or destroyed, only transformed from one state to the other. 

In this film, a young woman in a library studying law falls into a fantastic dream where she witnesses more than a century of ideas coming to life, energy flowing from innovation to innovation. In the end, she awakes in the real world, and leaves the library to carry that energy into the future. Part ode to innovation, part message to the future, “Beautiful Law” is a reminder that the energy that propelled GE for the past 132 years will live on--once, now and forever.

David Lubars, chief creative officer, BBDO Worldwide, said, “GE and BBDO have the type of long-standing marriage that’s rare in any industry--especially in ours, it’s been over 100 years. This work represents a new beginning for both of us; a great way to reintroduce the way GE helps make the world go ‘round.”
