NYF’s Film Craft Executive Jury, an award-winning collective of production experts, convened to review all Film Craft submissions.

Hakuhodo’s “10 Sec. Drama: The Stop Line of Love” was recognised with the top creative honor, New York Festivals Best of Show Award for their campaign for highlighting jms’ wide selection of items through a series of 10-second dramas. The episodes, modeled after a favorite Japanese daytime soap opera, ends with a punchline engaging viewers and building brand perception while emphasizing the broadness of the product line. “10 Sec. Drama: The Stop Line of Love” also was recognised with a Grand Award and a Gold Tower.

Says Yusuke Kanda, creative director, Hakuhodo: “First of all, we feel a lot of respect and appreciation to all the juries and festival members to carry out the award in this difficult time. We are so honored to be able to receive such an honorable award.

“The most difficult point was, how to connect the product with the feelings of viewers within such a limited time (10 seconds). Our solution was to include products that exist “Real” in our daily life, with the world of Drama “Fiction”, by exquisite balance to create comfortable views and binge watch through a film like structure.

“The key was to turn the most boring part of an advertisement, product cut, into the most fun and enjoyable part to create binge watch. And this was achieved by returning to the origin of what an advertisement should be.  To be able to achieve, this historically international and honorable award, gives us a lot of courage and we feel so much appreciation that cannot be expressed by words. Thank you.”
