surprisingly awesome marketing

A friend from design school just posted this. It is indeed surprisingly awesome marketing.

It’s an interesting world of advertising these days, where individuals have as much control over the spread of information as the established communication networks. It’s great that it can inspire advertisers to do things that are creative, innovative and interesting enough to have people continue to share them and thus spreading the advertisers message… simply because it’s interesting and cool!

good job advertisers. keep doing cool stuff…

one take super 8

Just about every year there is a ‘One Take Super 8’ showing of local filmmakers featuring never before seen footage captured on super8 cameras. You see all kinds of fun stuff from stop animation, to elaborately planned effects, to chase scenes, to wildly imaginative stories, with different ways of bringing sound, music, and audience interaction to the film.

It’s always interesting every year. It’s always strangely refreshing to use basic limitations to really ignite creativity.

The info:

At this year’s One-Take Super 8 Event we’re premiering 26 never-before-seen Super 8 films made by local people.  Each film 3 minutes + 20 seconds and has not been edited, spliced, or cut up in any way!   We would love for you to attend this awesome event on Saturday, April 14 at 451 Warren St, Syracuse, NY.  Doors open at 6pm / films start at 6:30pm.  There is a $5 cover fee which includes of free popcorn and soft drinks.

This year it’s in a building on Warren Street I’ve always admired — I have no idea if it’s a pop art venue, going to become some sort of art space or what? Check it out. Syracuse can always surprise you if you get out and look.
