Si & Ad

Si & Ad have worked as a directing duo for over a decade, meeting as in-house designers at Virgin Records. They have enjoyed a prolific career in music videos, and from there forayed into commercials developing their penchant for intricate films which never let the technique get in the way of being touching, charming and filmic.

Since starting their commercials career, the pair have shot work for Honda, MoreThan, Miller and JC Penney, but it was with the beautiful love story of Match.com that took them to another level. The film picked up Golds at almost all awards shows around the world, including Cannes, AICP, the British Arrows and the One Show.

"Nothing Stopping Us"
This is fully deserving of five stars for two reasons: first, it is joyous and, second, it has provoked the UK's anti-vaxxers into a frothing fury. But, good as it is, it also has the whiff of a baton being passed imperfectly as it headed down the home straight. While most of the vignettes land beautifully – most notably, the Santa section which has so inflamed Britain's dimwits – some of them aren't quite there, and this interrupts the flow.
