This is a commercial ad of Rolex. This commercial was released in March 2018 in United States. Under the title of “Rolex: The Art of Storytelling”.
Rolex has just launched a new campaign celebrating storytelling and cinema. And what better way to do so than enlisting four legendary directors in the top of their game.
This ad places Martin Scorsese (Raging Bull, Goodfellas), Kathryn Bigelow (Hurt Locker, Zero Dark Thirty), Alejandro G. Iñárritu (Birdman, The Revenant), and James Cameron (Titanic, Avatar) front and centre. A rare foray away from being behind the camera.
Additionally, each director starred in their own thirty second clip elaborating on their connection with their craft, building a further narrative around the ethos and pathos of the high-end watchmakers. Really driving the message home that Rolex’s don’t just tell time, it tells a history.
This commercial was directed by Jan Wentz.
We make movies.
And our hope is just this: that they’ll connect with people, even across generations.
Films should live beyond the screen.
They should resonate and expand your world.
These are the films that endure.
A film can cross boundaries and cultures, and, occasionally, stand the test of time.
Making a film that lasts is about taking risks, discovering new things.
No one was ever remembered for playing it safe.
It Doesn’t Just Tell Time. It Tells History.
