From Paul’s site:
To make a long story short, the Coca Cola Company is threatening to sue me over copyright infringement because I directed 2 spec commercials ‘advertising’ their product. I might add,at this point, that the spots are very pro-Coke, and not parody at all. Why they’ve chosen me is a mystery. There must be hundreds of other spec spots for Coke floating around.
Along with being a T.V. Commercial Director Paul is an accomplished photographer. Be sure to take a gander at his places and people photography.
