The UK-based advertising trade magazine Shots has named commercials director Keith Rose of Velocity Films as one of their top 100 most influential people in the history of Shots. Greg Gray’s Virgin Atlantic Airways “Love Story‘ is also featured as one of the best ever commercials featured on Shots. Keith Rose has been selected amongst advertising greats such as Frank Budgen, Jonathan Glazer and Danny Kleinman.
The Virgin Atlantic Airways television commercial directed by Greg Gray adds this latest accolade to a list of awards already received such as a Loeries Grand Prix, Silver Cannes Lion, One Show Pencil, Silver Clio and two Gold Loeries. The humorous commercial was also ranked in the Gunn Report’s Top 50 commercials worldwide, voted the number one international commercial worldwide in Campaign Magazine, UK and won Creative Circle Ad of the Year.
The reason Shots, which has been in existence for 16 years, is honouring key figures and commercials in the industry is to celebrate Shots’ 100th issue.
