Yme Gorter and Paul J. de Ridder (website) last week won a Yellow and Black pencil at the D&AD New Blood awards. We have to admit that when we first saw their casefilm, we thought; what a great idea…but “it’s just a video” – quoting Wesley ter Haar who took part in the Cannes Cyber jury, and explained at Pakhuis de Zwijger last Thursday that this phrase became a running gag in the jury for incredible casefilms without much proof of concept. It should be noted though that Ridder and Gorter are students at the Edinburgh Napier University, so they aren’t backed up by a big ass agency. What’s more, when we asked the team about the fact that it’s just a film, they told us they will present their case to Al Gore later this month at a closed Climate Change Summit. On top of that they will visit Google Labs this week to discuss the concept. So our sceptical thoughts were premature, these guys are making things happen! We take our hat off.
