INGO WILTS

HUGO BOSS Chief Brand Officer

« For me, the Man of Today is a guy who lives his life with a spirit of adventure. He makes the most of every opportunity that comes his way, and he always has his eye on what's next. At the same time, he seeks balance. He loves the fast pace of the city, but he also takes time out in nature. More than ever, he values his relationships with his family and friends. »

ARNO MORIA

DIVISION CEO

« My overall advise would be:
Be yourself, it is good to have references but don't mimic or copy something existing.
Turn the money and technical limitations into assets.

As jury member, I'll be focusing my attention on:

  • The originality of the idea and subject.
  • How the execution (direction, cinematography, AD, editing) elevates the idea in a context of limited means of production.
  • The global coherence of the film.

Good work and good luck! »
