If there’s one key item we’ve learned in all our years in the biz, it’s to leave certain aspects of the biz to the experts. This includes, but is not limited to: photography, illustration, copywriting, art direction, design, programming, voice-over and most importantly of all, pay attention to this one people, FILMPRODUCTION.
Unless you’re some kind of super-genius like Fallon’s Juan Cabral, stay away from the camera. Stay away from the stage. Stay away from casting. Stay away from the actors. Stay away from directing. Stay away, Goddamnit, stay far away. Unless you’ve got the experts to help guide you. If not, and mark our words here, there’s a very good chance you’ll end up with something like this created by Denver interactive firm, Faction Media.
For all of those who poo pooed Cypher13’s Soft&Furry™ logo contest last week here and here, the results from week one of the contest we’re pretty darn admirable – both in terms of design and the number of submission – 85 in total. The winner of week one was Ivan Pashenko. Still plenty of time to get in on this thing if you’ve changed your tune.
Boulder’s getting all worked up over new employee transportation for CP+B employees. Good stuff here from the Daily Camera.
The “Disruptive Thinker Transport,” a 25-passenger bus draped in drab gray and black lines, fake bullet holes, a nondescript company logo and a certain dark sense of humor, is raising eyebrows across the city.
The 1999 Bluebird biodiesel-converted vehicle, which last month began making rounds to employee pickup and drop-off locations throughout the city, has led curious passers-by to call Boulder police asking what the bus is all about.
One Camera reader commented in an e-mail that the bus is “vaguely militaristic” in its appearance and a little disconcerting.
Alex Bogusky, co-chairman of the Miami-based company, said that’s exactly what he was going for.
“It’s designed to look like a prison bus,” Bogusky said. “I didn’t want it to look like regular public transportation.”
