What are BUMPERS?

• Advertising film format
• 6 seconds to tell a story
• 1 sole idea
• It is publicity, therefore it aims to communicate

The participation conditions for Bumpers are the following:

  • Specific content for that format
    • Cannot reduce 30” spots
    • Specific creative process
    • Shooting specifically for this format (everything matters, the idea must be clear before filming)
    • 6 seconds, 1 idea and a specific emotional tone
    • Images prevail over sound
    • Closeups adapt better to a mobile screen
    • Voiceover or narrative may get lost, everything counts,
    music, sound, silence.

    • Its own rhythm
    • No introduction, straight to the plot
    • The action takes the lead
    • Several Bumpers work better
    • If there’s a sequence, the message is clearer

    • Each bumper nuances part of that idea that is wished to
    be passed on
    • The topic consists of: passing on the idea of art and
    nature through the experiences of customers
