The Bud Parody

February 25, 2010

I sense a theme coming in this blog. Parodies…hmmm. Yes, let’s continue. Thanks to Designer Extraordinaire, Tim, for the find.

Got that B Roll!

January 8, 2010

The snow was intense overnight in Hooterville. Had to shovel my way out of the drive only to get to my high rise office overlooking the river and find no email and no elevator. Snow boots on and off, coat, gloves, drive slow, ugh! There’s been no time to think about anything but client stuff. And thankfully, there’s plenty to think about.  So while I hate to be such a “cut and paster”, this was too priceless not to pass along. (via Renegade Agency Confessional!)

Men in Film

This has nothing to do with advertising, but it’s an awesome edit.  I was captivated by it, even though it felt a tad creepy here and there. And, I recognized every single one of them another indication of just how old I must really be.  Thanks to my friend Joe for sharing this…you’ll love it.

Turning on a dime

October 28, 2009

When you’re a small agency, you can do that. Turn on a dime. You can jump through a hoop and make it happen without inter-office bullshit, egos, protocols or hierarchy. So today when a client called and needed to change his commercial to push bananas at 39¢ a pound, we stopped everything else and did it.  In less than 3 hours, revision uploaded to the FTP. Boom. Done. I work with such cool people.

It’s what we do.

It feels good.

Local Commercials

October 14, 2009

Thank you adfreak, who found this. The makers of the RED HOUSE furniture spot which I posted back in May, have done a commercial for a music store in Souix City Iowa. ILoveLocalCommercials.com. Very nice, although WE make local/regional commercials and none have ever been as good as this one.

We must try harder.

The Fungus Finder 4000

The Red House ad was better…or worse. It’s amazing that big agencies spend all that money when evidently this is all it takes.

A furniture store for ALL people.

NO…we did not produce this, but damn, I wish I had. What a great addition to anyone’s demo reel. (And from High Point, North Carolina, too…the Furniture Mecca….what were they thinking?)

(Thanks to my friend Kathy (the best chick announcer ever) for bringing this to our attention)

More do-gooding

January 27, 2009

And while we’re on the subject of using your power for good, not evil, please take a look at this Public Service Announcement produced for a local children’s advocacy group.  The artwork was done by a fine local designer,  I wrote the copy and my video guy took photos (most are his own kids who are NOT neglected, by the way) then produced a lovely 30 seconds worth.  All at no charge. Because we have the power to do a good thing…and we all should.
