Ideas for Europe - 24 Commercials for a Concept

Due to the consideration that not only products but concepts and ideas need publicity, this project is about producing "commercials for a concept". "Commercials for a Concept" are ads - but not for products. They are ads for ideas, concepts or utopian product suggestions. Artists and music video directors were invited to create clips on the theme "Ideas for Europe". The result is 24 entertaining and experimental advertising clips that offer unconventional solutions for social, personal and philosophical problems.

"Ideas for Europe - 24 Commercials for a Concept" is a project by Graw Böckler. Commissioned by the 53rd International Short Film Festival Oberhausen 2007. Sponsored by the Federal Foreign Office of Germany.
