FIVE TO NINE: Upcoming!


Through my good buddy Gustavo (we painted Fiats together) at 131 Projects, I am happy to announce the opening of Five to Nine...a group show of Sapient artists.

We open this Friday, June 3rd from 7-10pm at the Grand Opening of The Buck House...a new spot by Buck15 at Villa, downtown. Come grab a drink and see what we do when we are off the clock....

JGC: MICROSITE




Check out the big bad mamma jamma website we are rolling out for the 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee! Its been a lot of work and I am super proud (yet again) of my amazing team. It takes you on a 3D journey through the build process with deep dives of JGC features and specs, where even more of the videos we did can be found and enjoyed. There is also a "gallery" with wallpaper downloads, photos, videos (some awesome historical goodies) and more. This is just Phase I, so stay tuned :)

JGC: MSN CUBE


This is a realllly sick buy (I think its a new thing MSN is doing). You go to MSN.com, and what looks like a regular square banner begins to spin and when you click it, is a cube that unfolds full screen. Each side has its own content and, in our case, the videos that we did in-house...you can then navigate throught he content by click the fullscreen to the left or right, spinning the cube, or unfolding it. It is so dope and was a LOT of work, and I am super proud of my whole team for coming together and kicking ASS on it.

Its only up for a day, so be sure to check it out. Eventually, I will have an archival video of it on here, but that may take awhile.

JGC: YOUTUBE HOMEPAGE EXPANDABLE


i just went to youtube to watch some stupid video, and then was stopped by this breathtakingly beautiful banner on the homepage. oh wait, thats MY banner! hahaha go to the youtube homepage (i think its up all day...not sure how that buy works) to check out the interactive, expandable, video banner for the "all new 2011 grand cherokee" woop woop.

FORTRESS OF SOLITUDE...



i posted these jerseys awhile back and i was SO happy to find out that the client actually picked my favorite one!!! FORTRESS OF SOLITUDE!!! (dum dum dummm!) so then i had to make matching decals to place on various cars throughout the series. WELL...yeah...i was siked because i finally got something awesome through the client and then, wouldnt you know it, everything went to shit and its not happening anymore. i guess i cant say why this happened, but know that it sucks. oh well....tis the bizzzzzz. but damn i was really looking forward getting flicks of these actually produced and in tv stills!!!!!!!!!

DEAR PROSPECTIVE CLIENT,


this is the title of the blog i made this morning. basically, we are trying to win this client and they sent us...USSSSSS...the f-ing creatives, this INSAAAAANO survey to answer. it has really difficult and confusing questions that i couldnt even begin to understand (none of us could). soooo...in proper advertising form, we decided to answer the questions like the cool, hip, irreverent people we are (i know...adddddvertising. jeeeez). we were (of course) encouraged to use links to videos and photos and say whatever we thought to be interesting/has SOMETHING to do with the questions. instead of just putting it in an email, i thought it would be more fun to make it a bloggggg (cause im a bloggin maniac!). so here it is: DEAR PROSEPCTIVE CLIENT
