Famous for its opening theatrics, the Saatchi & Saatchi New Directors Showcase in Cannes was as much a mesmerizing technical show as it was a bit of foreshadowing of the content to come.
With a pink, glowing pyramid on center stage dubbed the Dream Object, the show began with an ethereal future-voice greeting the audience with “You have made it to the other side”. As a group of flying mini-drone machines started a riveting choreographed lighted dance the voice continued, “You need not fear the great unknown anymore. Soon all will be revealed.”
While the space lady literally meant the year’s chosen directors were to be revealed, the body of work selected by Saatchi & Saatchi’s global creatives tells a story about the brave new world that modern upstart directors face, one where invention and proactive creativity prevails.
