BRW Filmland Los Angeles’ Erik Van Wyk Redefines Long-Distance Relationships For IKEA


Last Updated: May 23, 2014 10:59 pm GMT
(Los Angeles, California--May 23, 2014) BRW FILMLAND Los Angeles director Erik Van Wyk infuses a youthful courtship with impeccably inventive attention to detail in the new :60 “The Terrace” for IKEA out of Auge Headquarter, Milan, Italy, produced through Mercurio Production. The charming spot features a little boy dedicated to winning the affections of a young girl in the terrace below him, sending unrequited affections and gifts to no avail.

As he salivates over a plated pie in the girl’s afternoon tea setting, she summons him down to join, allowing him little time to fathom the remarkable development of his pursuit. Though an encounter of limited interaction, the little boy leaves with fulfillment in his heart and his belly.

Van Wyk’s “The Terrace” seems a stylish homage to Francois Truffaut’s Small Change and in a small way The 400 Blows, as benign mischief and adorable courtship take center stage—or more accurately, center apartment complex. The smitten boy’s inspired use of IKEA products helps him impress one tough, adorable and precocious customer.
