The Saatchi & Saatchi New Director’s Showcase: Guards

Objective: Engage new talent by making them send in their reels to The Saatchi & Saatchi New Director’s Showcase where they have a chance to be highlighted and discovered by their future clients. Create a viral film and spread it to production companies, film schools and talented film creators without any work experience. The film is based on the premise that a good director has the ability to make actors do the most remarkable things in front of the camera, a reflection of what it takes to be featured on the showcase.
