Antonin Kratochvil – PRIMA Golden Stone Award

The world-famous Czech photographer and director Antonin Kratochvil takes away first place for his surreal spot video created for the Czech Philharmonic Orchestra. The stylisation was based on surrealism Luis Buñuel and filmmaking of the 1960s, and the campaign sought to reinforce their tagline “Inspiration is everywhere.”

“The Czech Philharmonic is alive with music, but also table tennis. It’s a favorite activity of many members of the orchestra. The Rudolfinum even has to have two tables, so in addition to the beautiful sounds of flutes, violas and tubes, you can hear the sound of a ping-pong ball,” says Kratochvil.
