The South African born New York dwelling Skunk director, Brent Harris, gets chills from de Thurah, can’t function without coffee and thinks that ‘the need for speed’ can limit creativity.
What the most creative advertising idea you’ve seen recently?
It’s not new, new but I love Martin De Thurah’s Ubisoft The Baptism. I felt like I had been dropped deep into the darkness of some Southern Gothic world. It gave me chills.
What website(s) do you use most regularly and why?
ESPN FC. I’m crazy about football. The English kind. Tottenham Hotspur and Barcelona FC are my favourite teams.
What’s the most recent piece of tech that you’ve bought and why?
