Sundance Horror Short Shows Off Nikon D800

Instead of churning out a typical camera advertisement, Nikon and McCann put the former’s product–the new D800 Digital SLR–to the test by producing Broken Night, a 10-minute short film capable of displaying its advanced cinematic capabilities. Don’t worry if you’re not a camera geek. The project is meant to appeal to professionals on a technical level, but the film’s story stands on its own legs. Sundance, in fact, selected it for the festival’s 2013 U.S. Narrative Short Film Competition.

Personally, I’m not a fan of horror movies, but this is more cerebral and gothic than a blood-and-guts flick. Oscar nominee Guillermo Arriaga (Babel) wrote and directed the short, and Oscar winner/Steven Spielberg‘s go-to DP Janusz Kaminski (Schindler’s ListSaving Private Ryan) provided the cinematography.

If you’re fed up with the crap currently playing in theaters and reeling from the post-Super Bowl ad hangover, Broken Night is for you. Credits after the jump.

A Pair of MDC Shops Unite

 

It’s official that two MDC-owned agencies have bridged the gap between West and East Coast as we’ve received confirmation that NYC-based Skinny has now become Vitro New York. Now, with the merger and re-branding, Vitro San Diego and NYC will house a combined total of just over a hundred staffers (we’ve been told there were no layoffs as a result of the alignment).

The new leadership at Vitro consists of creative chairman Jon Vitro, CEO Tom Sullivan, and Liron Reznik and Jonas Hallberg (Skinny’s co-founders) as CCOs. Meanwhile, the updated client roster at the full-service, bi-coastal entity includes ASICS, Newcastle, Nokia, Target and P.F. Chang’s.
