Bestads Six of the Best reviewed by Toby Talbot, chief creative officer, Saatchi & Saatchi, NZ

This week's guest judge is Toby Talbot, newly appointed CCO of Saatchi & Saatchi New Zealand.

As I pen this, it's nearly midnight on Tuesday 18th April in New Zealand (we're from the future, don't you know) and so therefore the absolute deadline of deadlines for the award show of award shows for us is only 48 hours away. Consequently, I'm eyeing this week's pick very much with Cannes in mind. Just as I suspect some of this work was written, produced and bought (in that order) with Cannes in mind. Yes, all condom, dog adoption, adult shop ad makers. I'm talking to you.

BEST TV

Speaking of which, this should clean up in Film Craft. My picks would be A01 Direction and A02 Script. What the heck, stick it in A03 Casting too, why don't you; the Grim Reaper is a crack up. David, if you're reading this, love to work with you again. There's no category for sycophancy unfortunately - I checked. READ MORE...

Wish Toby was still kicking it around Aus. Always enjoyed the creative push you always strived for.
