Wongdoody, Seattle Film Festival Give You Roles in Your Favorite Flicks

L.A./Seattle-based Wongdoody and digital studio World Famous have joined forces to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the Seattle International Film Festival by reintroducing viewers to some of their favorite movies.

Watch as a vaguely robotic/European narrator posing as a “futuristic scientist transport[ing] willing subjects into alternate realities” sells the “Cinescape” experience by empowering a viewer to live out her “Trainspotting” toilet fantasy and recasting some extra as the only professional actor in “Beasts of the Southern Wild.”

The campaign, which also features “key art, print, outdoor, online and identity assets”, is currently airing as a trailer in various Seattle-area theaters. It will expand in various forms in the period leading up to the festival’s May 15th opening date.

The relationship between the agency and the festival has been a long one; this is their 11th collaboration.

Check out the shorter cut along with some quotes and credits after the jump.

WDCW Bows First Work for Papa Murphy’s

As we continue shaking rust off post-holiday, we might as well tell you that Tracy Wong, Court Crandall and the rest of the crew at Seattle/L.A.-based WDCW have unveiled their first broadcast campaign for Papa Murphy’s since beating out of a handful of agencies for the account back in October.

The agency has fulfilled its promise of launching its first campaign for the Vancouver, WA-based “take ‘n bake” pizza chain in Q1 of this year, and in doing so, has knocked out not one but a handful of spots. Still, we figured we’d stir the sauce a bit, keep things out of context and top this post off with an outtake reel from the campaign, which is dubbed “Love at 425 Degrees.” From what the parties involved tell us, the tagline’s inspired by the temperature in which Papa Murphy’s pizza bakes at in a home oven. So, there you go, and below is one of the spots, which plugs one of Papa’s weekly deals while also revealing that the brand’s 425 temp will make everything safe and sound in the household.

Well, there’s only so much you can do with ads for pizza chains, people, but check out one more spot and credits if you so choose after the jump. Now the only question that remains is whether WDCW will seek revenge in the next season of The Pitch.
