"Play Fearlessly"
PlayStation encourage us to 'play fearlessly' in this dramatic ad for their PS4 model. Directed by Garth Davis, the film is the latest instalment in the brand's 'Greatness Awaits' (not 'Be Best') campaign, which encourages gamers to lose themselves in their virtual world. A spirited central performance ties the film together, as a woman delivers an emotional monologue while reality bends around her.
