The holiday season is full of gifts, warmth, family, and last but not least – amazing marketing and advertising campaigns. Yes, we love them just as much as gingerbread cookies and not just because we provide residential locations for commercials. We love them because they are emotional, creative, and boast incredible production value. This year, to show our appreciation for all the hard working Torontonians in production, we picked some of our favourite commercials made by Toronto production companies that do holiday stories like pros.
This Sainsbury’s ad is not created by a Toronto company, but we were so impressed by it that we had to include it. Created by AMV BBDO and directed by Ringan Ledwidge of Rattling Stick in the UK. The ‘spirit’ of the ad has been met with some criticism, but we will stick to what we know best – great production value. It’s practically a short film inspired by real events – enjoy!
