Huge Fan of Steve Rodgers...
But that music video was crap ! Sorry Steve. But you still are the best director in AUS as far as Im concerned.

The Dog ad... Was a good solid execution, but really... Was that the best directed AD of the year? Must be stuff all going on in Australia at the moment... sort of depressing in a way.
