NDS 2012 Talking Heads #12 - Brian L. Perkins & Damian Kulash, Jr
04 JUL 2012
Brian L. Perkins & Damian Kulash, Jr., directing duo of the OK Go ‘Needing/Getting' promo, on being selected for the 2012 New Directors' Showcase:
"My first reaction when I heard we had gotten into the New Directors' Showcase was elation. Making a speeding car physically play a rock song is a ridiculous and incredibly difficult thing to do, so I was thrilled to be recognized for all the hard work. Which was stupid. Because the truly important thing about NDS is how unique and touching and insane all the other work is. While it's an honor to be recognized with these amazing directors, the far more important thing for me is that it's inspiring to see their incredible work." Brian L. Perkins.
"Our videos raked in seven Cannes Lions this week, which was a pretty surreal thrill for a musician/filmmaker looking in on the ad world from outside, but honestly the bigger honor was being included in the Saatchi & Saatchi New Directors' showcase. It was like the ultimate creative person's "best of" list for the year, and seeing our work in the middle of it was a total rush." Damian Kulash, Jr.
