The Bangalore Bat Doctor · Shell

This film is nothing to do with injured pipistrelles, unless I missed something. It’s Stuart’s latest film for Shell Lubricants’ Power of Partnerships series, featuring the charismatic Ram Bhandari and his musings on all things cricket and what the sport means to him and to India (everything, by the way).

Ram works twelve hours a day, seven days a week out of a tiny lockup in Bangalore, and every major Indian, and a quite a few Aussie, cricketers come to him to modify or fix their bats.

Shot in a beautifully loose but intimate style, Stuart’s film evokes the soulful chaotic atmosphere of Bangalore and Ram’s world of cricket.

“I really like you, as a friend” – is there a more seemingly gentle but absolutely crushing line?  Well, yes there is, and watch these two wonderful little films from Nice Shirt director Tobias Perse and find out what they are.

These films for Nivea amply display Tobias’s ability to take a straight forward script and take it to the next level, mixing engaging, funny performances with a heightened and deliciously surreal take on things.

Joan & Carol · Cheerios

Where would we be without that friend, the one that is there when you need them, wherever and whenever?

Jesper’s latest film for Cheerios follows Joan and Carol, two neighbours who’s friendship flourishes over several decades of fun and adversity – through crises including leaky roofs, house fires, a bat infestation (surely a homage to Catch him Derry), and other neighbours dodgy dance moves.

The glue that binds this relationship is bowl after bowl of sweetened cereal hoops – which as part of a healthy diet can afford one sufficient longevity for these kinds friendships to mature, like fine wine.

Somehow, in Jesper’s masterful hands, this schtick seems quite credible and entertaining.
