Communicating on behalf of a brand can be tricky business. A decent idea once passed through the brand’s filter and massaged and molded to hit key messaging targets can come out the other side a shell of its possible self.

Honda - The Impossible Dream v2

Re-release of Honda's famous Impossible Dream commercial. Re-made to include new products including the VFR1200, the new CR-Z car, and the Honda Jet aeroplane.
Shaun Pietersma's insight:

Fantasic Ad that I have never seen before stumbling across it today.
I was rivetted throughout this piece. Lots of different camera shots that can be looked at by a class, close ups, long shots etc.

Interesting use of music throughout. Great ad that features multiple Honda products in the one video and one character. Has a nice theme to the advertisement as well....follow (live out) your dreams?

Diet Wiegman creates sculptures from trash, which when a light is shone on them create shadows of stunning beauty.
Shaun Pietersma's insight:

Wow! Some impressive work here.
There are some rich ideas here from which a lesson may be planned around. Children may not fully grasp the juxtaposition of the use of trash/rubbish to make an artwork resembling Michael Jackson's famous moment, however there are useful ideas present.

Inspire Information: 41 creative advertising poster Collections

Shaun Pietersma's insight:

Some advertising posters that could be used as resources in the classroom for a Visual Literacy lesson.
I would not use all of these in the classroom, of course they would need to be age appropriate and the message of the advertisement is relevant. An ad that uses fear as its message or a controversial message would not be useful in a Primary School context.

I would like the class to focus on the use of colour, use of movement or lack of in the ad and the way the shot is framed etc.

Shaun Pietersma's insight:

Great Scoop It site that I found today.
There is some useful resources here offered by a Visual Arts teacher in the USA, many of such I have encountered along the way completing my blog for the Visual Arts assignment from last year.

The role of the Creative Arts in the Primary curriculum is an interest area of mine and it is not an area of strength or expertise.

Shaun Pietersma's insight:

Interesting to get some perspectives of parents and the general community and how they feel about the role of Education. After this mornings lecture about Schools as a Community, it is more pertinent.
