Up first is this month’s Editor’s Choice Award winner, a different kind of commercial to say the least. Luke McPeake at UKRD is the producer and Mike Bersin the writer on this three minute commercial. That’s right, three minutes to be creative, and they did just that. Track 2 is audio from Dave Foxx referenced in his Production 212 column. Track 3 is the commercial Dennis Daniel talks about at the end of his Commercial Chronicles column this month. Track 4 is the spot Richard Stroobant writes about in his article on page 17, Do You Remember Your First Spot Ever? This spot is the one his student produces. But Richard also references a Beatles promo he heard years ago, and we were able to locate that one as well. It’s on track 5, a promo Steve Hunt did 25 years ago!

More commercials on tracks 6-14, including a PSA on track 6 from Ben Thorgeirson that would have been my pick for the Editor’s Choice Award if it hadn’t been for that “Sammy the Seal”! (Sorry, Ben.) A few promos are on tracks 15-19, and we wrap it up with another excellent piece of work from broadcasting student Tayler Shaindlin on track 20.
