Silestone Video Wins Golden Lion Award

Cosentino VideoCosentino, a world leader in the distribution of quartz surfaces and other natural stones, has received a Golden Lion Award at the Cannes International Festival of Creativity for its video: “Silestone, Above Everything Else.” The creator of the advertisement, Spanish digital animator Alex Roman, attended the Cannes Festival Award ceremony and accepted the award, which was honored in the Film Craft category.

The minute-long video showcases an innovative vision of the world of the kitchen and above all, of Silestone worktops, through the impeccable use of animation and surrealism. Roman expertly fused images, sounds and superb digital effects to enhance the unique properties and characteristics of Silestone surfaces and their quartz origin.
