Irish director Lenny Abrahamson will join the Hot Press Shoot To Thrill panel of judges, which also includes the MD of McCann Erickson, Orlaith Blaney, Eoin Wrixon of Carlton Screen Advertising and Ian Jacobs, Creative Director at Windmill Lane Pictures. The panel will be chaired by Hot Press editor Niall Stokes.
Shoot To Thrill entrants have been asked to create a 30-second ad for Hot Press, suitable for running in cinemas – and the winner will be named the Hot Press Carlton Screen Advertising Young Director of the Year.
Abrahamson – whose hits include the widely acclaimed Adam & Paul, Garage and What Richard Did – is currently in New Mexico shooting his latest cinematic adventure, entiled Frank.
"We are really thrilled to have Lenny, Orlaith and Ian on board," Niall Stokes said. "The competition represents a wonderful opportunity for the winner to make his or her mark – and the calibre of the judges underlines just how seriously we are taking Shoot To Thrill."
