Motorola and Nexus Show the History of Film

Motorola 'Grand Classics'
Motorola 'Grand Classics'
Nexus Productions directing team Smith & Foulkes, having taught us about music (the Observer's "Abba to Zappa") and social reform (Honda's "Grrr"), give us a primer on the art of cinema, using, what else, a rabbit. Though "Grand Classics" broke in August in British cinemas, we had to share the spot that takes viewers from zoetrope animation and Citizen Kane to Apocalypse Now and Gladiator. Made for Motorola via London-based brand agency The Fish Can Sing with music from M2C Media, "Grand Classics" promotes the telecom company's involvement in a program by that name that contributes to motion picture preservation.
