This is a trailer from a previous year at Cannes. I liked how it spoke to the importance of creative messaging and the place it has in our everyday lives. We all know the power of images, how to master it is what makes a great Advertiser. Just like every industry, raw talent is the start, training and experience leads to the excellence that is paramount for success.


Get your creative juices flowing with this energetic look at the Commercials that have rocked the world this past year. Be part of the energy Calgary, come, celebrate, you are Calgary's most colourful Creatives.
Follow along, be part of the conversation and connect on twitter for more information with #CannesYYC and more on other events with #ADWeekYYC.
I will also be engaging conversation @CaraAzevedo and @Carazcom

We look forward to seeing you there. Some will come fancy, many will come flirty, all will come for the fun and festivities!
