In recognising the films the jury described ‘Hipsters’ as a “Brilliant use of humour to create a memorable film from a universal insight, perfect for the brand.”
They added that ‘Callum Murray’ was “A fun way to express the brand. Great scripting, with a laugh out loud execution.”
Partner and Executive Creative Director at AJF Partnership, Josh Stephens said, “It was great to have the MADC back supporting our local industry and it was great to see such a high standard of work.
“We’re very proud to have AJF pick up two of only three film awards given the quality of film creative that comes out of Melbourne.”
