To celebrate the sources of inspiration in our everyday lives, Ogilvy is running a competition.
The brief? To create a film under 4 minutes long about inspiration.
The prize? A trip to the Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity.
Being a naturally inspired bunch, OgilvyEntertainment has entered a film into the competition.
“Harriet’s Hello” is about the most basic form of inspiration there is: other people.
Coming home to find an attractive new roommate has moved in, our French hero is inspired to try and overcome his difficulties with the letter ‘H’ (a phantom consonant for the French) in order to say “hello” to Harriet.
Watch the film here:
We launched the film by extending a special invitation to all the Harriets in Ogilvy to have a first peek. We have also been handing out leaflets with QR codes linking to the video and calls to action in tiny babysitter strips at the bottom.
So tweet us or leave a comment in our blog telling us who inspires you and what they’ve inspired you to do. Whether its your 4th grade art teacher who inspired you to try and be the next Jackson Pollock, or whether it was a really terrible roommate, who inspired you never, ever to use Craiglist again. Whoever it was, we’re interested.
