Award: Wood Pencil

Wood Pencil / TV & Cinema Crafts / Direction / 2006

Executed in a documentary style, the commercial opens with a man writing on his PC at work. His off camera voice-over identifies him as a writer for CSI, the forensic crime show. As he gets ready to leave for the night, he tells us that his job entails long hours of research and that he often takes his work home. Nothing unusual there, but the viewer soon discovers the work involves a cadaver. He picks the body up off a gurney and awkwardly begins his journey home. He passes a bored cleaning lady, a disinterested security guard, before he finally gets the cadaver into his car for the ride home. All the while he tells us more about the way he approaches his work. With much difficulty, he manages to get the body inside his house ending with the day and time we can watch CSI.
