A HAND HAMMERED FILMS PRODUCTION 2008

Our response to the Obama in 30 Seconds project, a call for filmmakers to produce a campaign ad in support of Barack Obama's 2008 presidential bid.

The ad is structured as a visual and emotional juxtaposition - forward vs. backward, steady vs. out of control, clear vs. confused. The stark image used here cuts through the cloud of spin, replacement subjects, and wedge issues, and presents a simple, unobstructed choice.

The answer to the question posed by the title is clear. Do you know what time it is? It's time to move forward.
