Now we all know I’m an NSRI volunteer and I love seeing the work released by Ogilvy who do the pro-bono work for Head Office. I have to say that still to this day, my favourite advert has been the JP Andrew ‘Always on Duty’ advert and have been waiting for the day when another advert with the similar mood, tone and fitting sound track was released.
And now we have ‘Sea Fever’ released last week by Velocity Films, NSRI and Ogilvy set to John Maserfield’s poem, Sea Fever. I love it. I love the use of Noah and Whales’ ‘First Day of Spring’ playing in the background. Just love. Even though I’m a volunteer, that first shot with the girl, is what I do; sit on the rocks or the beach, take in the ocean, ground myself and move on from there.
We’re always on call, we really are. From 2am in the morning to in the middle of dinner with the crew at Hudsons or a breakfast at Newport or Alpha crew stepping onto the beach to play some touch rugby and then ‘beep beep’, it’s another nice reminder of why we love doing what we do.
