• Crispin and Plum TV Launch 'Mr. Internet'

    / Comments (0)

    Crispin Porter + Bogusky and Plum TV are launching their first co-production over Thanksgiving Day weekend, Mr. Internet, a 30-minute show hosted by vp, group creative director Dave Schiff that aims to be the Talk Soup of Web culture.

    The segments run the gamut from informational discussions about how to find relevant content on the Internet using tools such as StumbleUpon to a discussion about Web-made celebrity with Wired cover girl Julia Allison and the controversial online hunting site set up by Texas hunter John Lockwood that has been reinvented as a venue where users can shoot paintballs at live targets like girls in bikinis rather than bullets at live animals.

    Produced in-house at a small studio near the agency’s Boulder, Colo.-office, the show mimics Web communication with guests appearing in chat windows rather than in a studio beside Schiff.

    The trailer doesn’t do it much justice, but we’ll see where this thing heads down the line.

    Details

    Sample some of Colorado’s finest print artists during Ink Lounge Gallery’s second annual Colorado printmaking exhibit, opening Friday, November 21. Visitors will rethink ink as they gaze upon an oversized woodblock printed apron, ponder gritty screen printed baking sheets, peer into a letterpress house of cards, and rest their eyes on a woodblock print robot pillow. We have 20+ professionals and students representing the community for this exhibit – all doing things a little bit different and unique with ink for this show that runs through January 7, 2009.

    Nascar Blindness is a great term that we plan to adopt as of immediately.

    ..a common symptom of something that greatly afflicts people in the advertising community: NASCAR Blindness. Which is the strongly held belief that if no one in your little bubble of upscale artsy BoBo friends is into something, then clearly no one else is.

  • Quillions

    / Comments (0)

    Quillions is a darkly comedic operetta exploring the human condition and how the prospect of fabulous wealth can erode all relationships. It was shot here in Denver last weekend by More Where That Came From Productions – one of 5 teams in the US picked by Panasonic to participate in a short film fest. The film was made in 48 hours for the Panasonic HD Filmmaker Showdown.
