ADG Salutes Photoplay Director Husein Alicajic's 'Synchronicity' Campaign for Continental
Photoplay director Husein Alicajic is one of six
directors to be nominated at the Australian Director's Guild awards for
outstanding Australian directors. For a third year running, he is
nominated in the Best Direction of Commercial Content category for
Continental 'Synchronicity' with the winner announced in May.
Capturing the connection between the farming practices of Continental and the farmers working hand in hand with nature, the global spot, via 303MullenLowe Sydney, took Alicajic to rural Queensland where he filmed on real working farms.
The acknowledgement comes off the back of last year's ADG commercial category nomination for Samsung 'Make Your Mark' - a campaign that celebrates discovering the wonder in everyday moments. The previous year he received a Highly Commended in the same category for Officeworks: Let Their Amazing Out.
Alicajic's other recent achievements include directing empowering Australian Unity spot, 'Your Body', along with a colourful Taubman's campaign 'Let's Go Paint' and 'Be Transformed', an elegantly choreographed piece for the Sydney Dance Company.
With a passion for bold visuals and a signatory flare for visual effects, Alicajic's work has been honoured at Cannes, Clio, Ciclope, New York Festivals, PROMAX BDA and AWARD. He has recently come on board to direct a true crime Australian feature film based on the life of boxer Dean Waters, and is currently developing a country and western biopic feature film in The States.
