Three Escape Podders, myself included, just returned from the Cannes advertising festival.
The highlight of the trip was getting five pieces onto the shortlist. We only entered six!
The lowlight was finding out a day later that we didn’t score any metal. But, like the poker pros say if not winning doesn’t sting a bit, you shouldn’t be in the game.
Upside: a lot of fun was had and a lot of bullshit talked and many acquaintances from far and wide renewed.
Thanks to Smuggler/Psyop/The Whitehouse for a yummy dinner in Antibes. And thanks also to Station Films for a great soiree in…up a hill somewhere.
And kudos also to inestimable Escape Pod producer Kent Kwiatt who is a licensed sailor and rented a yacht and took us and a few pals out for a wondrous sail in the Med.
Life doesn’t suck.
