Bowker 1 – Telesales 0
It’s quite hard to find a Costa close by these days (smiley face made from punctuation etc)… so what better than to be able to enjoy a cup of their coffee at home…
Well that’s the brief anyway. And here’s what Karmarama did with it. It’s Phil Bowker’s first commercial since joining QiCommercials.
Rich Connell & Clem Woodward were the creative team, and Sam Walker & Joe De Souza oversaw the production as ECDs. Bebe Evwaraye and Buzzy Moitre handled the agency production.
In a world where double-glazing call-centres seem to have been re-purposed to chase PPI claims, it’s always good to have a plan for when the phone rings. Using the time to make a cup of coffee seems like a smart move.
Unless of course you actually do have a ‘roostin’ bird’…
Phil is currently prepping the third series of PhoneShop and has completed the writing for a Kayvan Novak pilot – all to be screened in the New Year.
Lloydy – Stuck On A Desert Island
John Lloyd is Kirsty Young’s ‘castaway’ on Desert island Discs this week. The show broadcasts on Sunday, November 18th at 11.15am.
We’re not certain what tracks John will pick. But the debate rages about his luxury item. Mobile phone? Computer? Packet of fags?? All will be revealed on Sunday.
Bowker….out of the blocks…..
After a couple of ‘close but no cigar’ pitches (and some jobs that simply evaporated) we finally nailed one. The good people at Karmarama backed Phil to the hilt and we’ve just shot his first commercial. Rich & Clem were the creatives, Sam & Joe were the ECD’s and Bebe and Buzzy produced the job. An intriguing mix of Kraft, Bosch and Costa Coffee represented the client interests.
Into The Quarry to edit with the mighty Gary Dollner. Watch this space for the finished spot….
