sifted and sieved through hundreds of the most brilliant pieces of work from

year’s work is full of humanity, imagination and pure creativity, and
remarkable for finding fresh and innovative ways to connect emotionally with

part of the global network’s year-long Predictions research, it discovered five
trends that are influencing the creative business.

Cannes Predictions – Trends
“Epic” Take on a Classic Ad Format: In our
industry’s rush to the future, it’s important not to forget the potency of the
past. At the core of one of this year’s most buzzed-about contenders is a
simple, time-tested format: the product demo.
shop Forsman & Bodenfors took a classic approach, and combined the “Muscles
from Brussels” with a spellbinding new age ballad to create a viral sensation. “Epic Split”  (#25) is the lynchpin of Volvo Trucks’ “Live Test
Series,” a set of short demos poised to win a truckload of metal.
campaign has the momentum of numerous wins this spring, including a recent
Black Pencil at D&AD.
Technology with Purpose: Branded
Technology will make its debut in the Cyber Lion category this year, a move
that comes as more marketers are using the power of creativity coupled with
technology to solve problems, extend existing campaigns and, most importantly,
deliver brand purpose.
year’s Predictions recommend keeping an eye on technologies that offer utility
like Nike’s “Nike SB App” (#21),
which was conceived to help skateboarders record and document their
its introduction last year, expect to see even more buzz around the Cannes
Innovation Lion. Among the strongest contenders is Samsung’s “Maestro’s Academy
— Smart Bike” (#19) from Leo Burnett Milan, a next-generation bicycle developed
in concert with Samsung technology to make cycling safer. The campaign
represents just one of the many ways brands are using technology to improve
people’s lives… and in this case, save them.
Don’t Think, Feel: We’re
seeing more brands building emotional relationships with people by creating
experiential moments of feeling.
from winning seven Pencils at D&AD, look out for Honda’s “Sound of Honda /
Ayrton Senna 1989,” (#20) which used groundbreaking technology to immerse F1 fans in
a stunning aural re-creation of the racer’s legendary lap.
Foundation’s poignant “If Only For A Second” (#8)
captured beautifully a rare moment of “carefreeness” in the lives of cancer
patients, and turned it into a highly engaging, sharable film.
the “D Rose Jump Store” for Adidas
(#22) literally took the pop-up shop to new heights, as amateur hoopsters were
given the opportunity to experience the feeling of leaping like NBA superstar
Derrick Rose.
all channels, the cream of this year’s crop strikes a visceral chord with its
Long-Form and Documentary
Style Content:
It might seem counterintuitive in a world where bite-size media
and brevity reign supreme, but more brands are embracing the craft of long-form
and documentary style content.
advertisers like Guinness are pioneering this category with work like “Sapeurs” (#1), a
fascinating glimpse into a unique subculture of well-dressed men that’s from
AMV BBDO London.
year, San Francisco agency Pereira & O’Dell bagged three Grand Prix for the
“The Beauty Inside,” a six-episode effort for Toshiba and Intel that was among
the longest ever entered to Cannes. This year, look out for their “Born Friends Family
Project” (#3) for Skype, which tells the compelling true stories behind
real people using Skype to stay connected.
course, as film lengths get longer, directorial skills become ever more
essential. To that end, “Blazed” (#5) is a
masterpiece. The NZ Transport Agency tapped Oscar-nominated Moari director
Taika Waititi to helm this unusual anti-drug driving message. Waititi extracted
remarkable performances from a remarkable cast, and the result is a highly
engaging film that passes the true test of any film, long or short:
Social Potency: Following a string of major wins
including multiple Grand Prix at international shows, and a Gold at the
Facebook Studio Awards, ABTO “Bentley Burial” (#16) is a classic example of the power
of a brilliant idea coupled with the reach of social media. Six simple posts on
Facebook from an eccentric Brazilian billionaire captured the attention of a
nation and ignited a provocative conversation about organ donation that reached
172 million, and boosted donations more than 30 percent. Like other strong
contenders in this space, the ABTO effort harnessed the sheer potency of social
platforms, but at its heart was a compelling story.
