The A-List Jury is a diverse group of worldwide industry leaders.

“I love that fact that one of the core judging criteria for The A-List Hollywood is ‘creativity in brand message’. Sure a piece of work may be entertaining, but if no one understands, or worse still, fails to even realise there’s a brand message contained within, it’s a bit pointless really. Bravo.”

I’m honored to be a part of this year’s The A-List Hollywood jury, to celebrate and recognize those that create great work by crafting together advertising and entertainment."

We are always chasing that dream".

"Entertainment has historically made people aware of certain wrongs in the world, while advertising as an industry has grown a conscious more recently.

 

I feel that the coalition of the two can truly touch our hearts and make a change for the better".

ADVERTISING VS ENTERTAINMENT

To move forward, we have to go back to the basics. It’s all about emotion and persuasion. Dan Wieden’s rule of thumb on advertising is “Make me feel something, dude”. While Alex Bogusky brief to all his creative was “Don’t show me the script, show me the headlines.”

The ‘Survival of the fittest’ principle requires us to become more like the entertainment industry. More like Netflix, Amazon Prime, Vice, Spotify, Hollywood and Bollywood. They are our industry’s greatest competitors, and at the same time, our greatest teachers. Just look at how amazing they are at pulling us into watching and listening to their content on our smartphones. And paying for it.

Whether it’s advertising or entertainment, the blank page still has to be the most exciting and terrifying thing in the world. The trick, I think, is to always remain a student and a sponge. For if you’re willing to learn something fresh, that blank page has a better chance of becoming something fresh.

 

It’s an honour be part of this year’s The A-List Hollywood jury, I’m looking forward to seeing - and learning - some new things.
