NO PANEL, NO PRESENTATION, NO PLAN
Yes, there might be bigger advertising festivals out there, but we know that a lot of you come because CICLOPE is smaller, more intimate and less French than the rest. We wanted to take advantage of the fact that the whole of Ciclope can fit inside one large-ish cinema by using YOUR collective brains to answer YOUR most pressing questions. Confused? You just might be!

Join Arif Haq as he proves that the smartest people at CICLOPE aren’t on the stage, they’re right there in the audience. Hopefully.

RAISING AWARENESS (AND BEYOND) image

RAISING AWARENESS (AND BEYOND)

The current migration politics all over the world have put under stress the situation of refugees (human beings, “newcomers”) who feel excluded in their new homes.

This urgent issue hides many beautiful stories of people looking for inclusion, that we can bump into from time to time. But these emotional stories hardly explain the contribution newcomers can make to the community, and most of the times ignore their talents and achievements, as well as the difficult place women have in the process.

In this session, Fatuma Musa Afrah –a newcomer herself, and an award-winning activist with focus is women empowerment and community inclusion– will share her views on why the advertising and entertainment industries should be reflecting this social process, and how they can have a positive impact creating awareness and sensitization within the host communities.

WORKING DIRECT: THERE’S WORK TO DO

Working direct to client is one of those opportunities for production companies, so the Advertising Producers Association conducted a study of brands. How is it working for them? What do they want from production companies?

Production companies keep their cost base low, which is good for managing through lean times but provides little resource for business development. Steve will talk about how production companies can overcome that challenge to win new work and how trade associations can support them in achieving that goal.

CASE STUDY: TRAKTOR + LEGO ‘REBUILD THE WORLD’

Rebuild the world is the first global campaign of the iconic brand. The commercial, directed by legendary collective Traktor, is about a rabbit trying to escape from a hunter. It’s a mix of really good CGI and live action, and includes all type of dragos, police officers, flying cars, and other Lego world elements.  Characters are based on existing lego toys, and each objet in the film was made in equal proportion to it equivalent to a Lego brick.

DOSIST: BUILDING A TOP-SELLING CANNABIS BRANDS
In 2016, founding partners of world-class global agency Anomaly launched dosist, a premium cannabis brand designed to address specific need states through unique product innovation, design and chemistry.

On the verge of mass de-criminalization of cannabis in the United States, the opportunity is worth billions – hence the ‘heat’ in the VC community. Apart from legalization efforts on many state ballots this year, one of the biggest challenges with cannabis has always been inconsistent dosage and effect. Consequently, dosist is focused on specific use-occasions (e.g. pain, sleep, stress, etc.) combined with targeted chemistry that ensures uniform effect, and an innovative delivery method – called the Dose Pen™ – that guarantees consistent dosage of cannabinoids and terpenes.
