Not that big of an idea, but very nice video, especially for being student work.

Everybody is creative, be yourself.

I agree with Lahaff : not the most brilliant idea ever seen. A pity because coming from students: is young people do not come with dynamic ideas, what will they produce later ? But well realised: clean and nice

it's something very predictable at how the story would go. I wouldn't say it's the best or creative, but it's not bad either. It's just nice.

video is nice, but idea is a bit stupid- people see such views when they are totally frozen some minutes before death...;)

Why do they say "Keep walking?". Pointless reference to Johnnie Walker in my opinion.

Furthermore, agree with above comments.

the effekt would be better, if he had no beard, when the storm begins
and when he finally wakes up in spring, his beard is grown.

I wish I could sleep as good ad that. Does North Face have products for daddies?
BTW, solid ad. The trekkers out there will identify themselves to this.

Quite nice, but I agree it can be misunderstood easily.

Who are You to demand magnificent ideas, and if they're not it would mean that whole work is weak. Oh c'mon. This is absolutely fabulous ad, nevermind who'd done that. Great story, cool cinematography, cool grading, great music. Hats off.

Thanks, I appreciate the support. We shot this for less then 5k (on anamorphic 35mm to those who might care) with no support from North Face. All the snow and tent stuff was on a sound stage, everything else on location. To those who enjoyed, thanks, I wanted to do something different with a major brand that goes slightly against how they normally advertise, I always consider myself first a narrative storyteller and wanted to build my reel within that genre.
