Moms Demand Action

The gun control group Moms Demand Action For Gun Sense In America has released a searing new commercial, timed to the one-year anniversary of the Newtown school shooting on Dec. 14, that pleads with its viewers to speak out against gun violence. Moms Demand Action will mark the one-year anniversary of the tragic shooting in Newtown, Connecticut, with No More Silence, a campaign to honor the lives lost at Sandy Hook Elementary, and to show our resolve never to be silent again about the epidemic of gun violence.

“We’re hoping the ad shocks people into action, that’s the goal of this,” said Shannon Watts, founder of Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America. She started the group one day after Newtown and says the group now has 127,000 members.

According to Ms. Watts, working with the Canadian agency Grey has helped the group to craft its message. “Whenever you work with someone from another country, they are shocked by the absurdity of our laws,” she said. “That shootings are a constant in this country, is shocking to them. That helps bring some perspective.”

Canadian Film Fest In Shots

Jonathan Bensimon helms this brilliant short film to promote the 2014 Canadian Film Fest. Focussing on a Canadian zombie - a real one, of course - the spot follows his journey as he looks to break into the movie business which, at first, seems unlikely because, well, he just too darn nice...

The spot was created through JWT Canada.

Jonathan Bensimon studied film and photography at Ryerson University in Toronto, and in 2003 was accepted for the Budapest Cinematography Master Class. He studied directly with legends Laszlo Kovacs (Easy Rider, Five Easy Pieces) and Vilmos Zsigmond (Close Encounters of a Third Kind, The Deer Hunter). Jonathan continued to mature by photographing Music Videos, Episodic Television, as well as shooting the critically acclaimed feature film “You Might as Well Live” that premiered at the Slamdance Film Festival. His clients have ranged from Bud Light and Honda to AXE. His short film titled "Time to Deliver” opened the Worlds Aids Conference and was screened before an audience of 25,000 delegates and world leaders including Bill Gates and Bill Clinton. Tokyo/Glow exploded online and was featured on vogue’s website, Creativity and Communication Art. Jonathan has also recently been on the cover of SHOTS Magazine. His passion for film and advertising has allowed him to diversify, and he’s avoided being pigeon-holed to one particular genre, style or technique.
