Last year, Rolex, to celebrate its involvement with the Oscars, debuted a film that featured scenes from films with watches on the wrists of the characters. It was an amazing recap of the films featuring Replica Rolex Oyster Perpetualtimepieces, often chosen by the filmmakers or, at times, belonging to the actors themselves.
This year, Rolex decided to flex is muscles again with four of its filmmaking Testimonees Kathryn Bigelow, James Cameron, Alejandro G. Irritu and Martin Scorsese talking about the impact of film, story and character.
Great movies are made in details, and not just a few details every detail. Every character, every prop and every sequence,Cameron said. A Rolex is not only a beautiful watch and a masterpiece of engineering, it's very tough. It's a watch that you can take into any environment and which can stand up to the pressure. So, what you're saying subliminally to the audience is: that character can take the pressure, too; he or she has what it takes.
On being included with the other directors, Cameron said, All four of us have very different styles and we're interested in very different types of subjects, but what we have in common is a devotion to excellence, from a unique and visionary perspective on the world.
Alejandro G. Irritu was a film mentor in the 2014-2015 Rolex Mentor and Protg Arts Initiative, where he took his protg on the set of The Revenant. Our life is multidimensional, but time is linear we cannot escape that,he said. Cinema is a two-dimensional reality within a frame, but time and space are fragmented which is why it's so liberating and addictive.
Martin Scorsese was also a mentor for the Rolex Mentor and Protg Arts Initiative in 2008, and he is very aware of the impact film can have on young people. If it moves a young person, if it instills that kind of excitement and inspiration, I like that very much. I like to see what they do if they're inspired by something I've done. Film really tells us who we are. Tells us about ourselves. There's a reflection of the society that we were at the time, our philosophy of life.
Rolex has always worked with the best of the best in whatever field in which the brand is involved. Great examples are Arnold Palmer in golf, Roger Federer in tennis and Jackie Stewart in auto racing. Rolex supports inspiring individuals and organizations who achieve great heights in both the sporting world and the arts. The Academy and the four exceptional Rolex Testimonees in cinema Kathryn Bigelow, James Cameron, Alejandro G. Irritu and Martin Scorsese exemplify a determination to reach unimaginable goals.
