Post 19/40 - Telecom Italia 'Marlon Brando'

2000. “Would you hold on sir; I have Mr Marlon Brando for you.” Not many advertising conversations start like that. But Marlon wanted to know the ins and outs of the script. The director, Tony Scott, as ever made every frame count. 

This series of four films had four different directors: Spike Lee, Tony Scott, Chris Cunningham and Woody Allen. And one very enlightened client with a budget to match. 

Client: Telecom Italia | Title: ‘Marlon Brando’ | Office: Milan
