Success follows Kiwis from Cannes to Palm Springs

Only a few days after picking up a few lions at Cannes, Saatchi & Saatchi's creative director Corey Chalmers found himself among the winners at the Palm Springs Film Festival.

The film was a collaborative effort, in the sense that it was written by Chalmers and then directed and produced by Steve Saussey and Yoland Dewey of Stuff and Nonsense Ltd.

Saatchi & Saatchi's Nathan Cooper takes us for a ride on 'The Beer Scooter'

Creative folk are always coming up with ideas and finding ways to execute them during the day and then going home and doing the same thing at night, whether it's a business, an app, a film or some other diversion.
