“Best Advertising Production” 2016: “Face the Darkness”11. August 2017
A thirsty hero, a vicious monster, a Nordic landscape and tips on how to open a beer in the most epic way possible; these are the ingredients in a witty commercial called “Face the Darkness” made by students at the Filmakademie Baden-Württemberg. Seeing as the ad wasn’t actually commissioned by the beer company, the student team was free to design their spot at will. And, thanks to its extremely funny narrative and effective technical execution, the film was able to outdo its competitors in the category “Best Advertising Production” in the year 2016.
