Interesting ASA Ruling

_89100053_gucci2The Advertising Standards Authority (ASA) has just ruled that a Gucci advert from last December should not appear again in its present form as the ASA:

“…considered that the model leaning against the wall appeared to be unhealthily thin in the image, and therefore concluded that the ad was irresponsible.”

The ASA ruling is HERE

For F’s Sake?

Really interesting post on the BBC this morning about sexism in the film industry. Is it time to expand the ‘F’ certificate that was first used at last year’s Bath Film Festival. They award it as follows:

It is given to any film that meets one of three criteria: It must be written by a woman, directed by a woman or feature “significant women on screen in their own right”.

Is this needed? Overdue? Patronising? An admission that people cannot self-regulate? And would it be a selling point for a film as far as you are concerned?

Please read the article, and leave your thoughts in the comments!
