Emmy nominated!

Sitting at my breakfast table last Thursday, I received a phone call from my Executive Producer. A bunch of scenarios went through my head. Missed deadline? Email not returned? “Are you sitting down?” she said. “No, but I prefer to stand”. “WE WERE JUST NOMINATED FOR AN EMMY!” More on this soon, but wow. Big congrats to our team.

United States of Arts: Mississipi

I really love the MS video. It’s variety of stories, song and homegrown art is the epitome of what this project is about. I’m planning on attending the Turner Family Picnic this year, sounds like the best party going. Check out the video on the NEA page and let me know what you think.

Back to it.

I’m happy to announce that I’ve joined the team at Hearst in the App Lab. I work on the digital editions of Esquire, Cosmopolitan, Car and Driver, Road and Track, Oprah magazine and Food Network Magazine. The last couple weeks have been a whirlwind of onboarding and figuring out how to get things done. One thing that’s inspiring is walking in the door everyday…the Heast Tower is a miracle of modern architecture and engineering. More on that here.

Working strictly in mobile, I’m still struck how all digital really works basically the same and it’s about great concepts and ultimately execution.

NBC Shoot with Marcus Samuelsson

Today I had the pleasure to interview the amazing Marcus Samuelsson at his new restaurant Red Rooster. He is being honored by the New York Urban League with the Fredrick Douglass Award for his contributions. He was eloquent, dashing and his restaurant is amazing. Some photos to follow, and later the video, after it premieres at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel on May 12. My goal in these videos was to not dwell on the accomplishments of the person, but rather try and get to the heart of them, what makes them tick, what made them do all the things that got them to where they are now. Here’s some pics, including my crab soup (yum!): imageimageimage

A post about posts

Here’s a sad post that I never thought I would share. I want to blog more, but I get too busy and with the new gig need to spend time getting up to speed with the new team. Looking for the spine, the will to blog more, tweet more, engage more. Designate a weekly time, it’s not a bad idea. My half-year resolution. Blog more.

New gig

I just accepted a new position. I’m pretty psyched about it. The reason is not just $, but that’s always nice. But they are taking an interesting turn, creating a large project management department that has full support of the agency brass.image This is great. In theory, a lot of agencies are talking a digital, project management game, but few are putting their resources where their mouth is. Meaning: Sure, they hire producers/project managers, but they still have the account, creative depts rule the roost and PM/Producers just do their bidding. Here the opposite bodes to be true. We’ll see how it all works out, but for the moment I appreciate the fresh approach, and I appreciate them thinking I would be a good fit.

I’ve been nominated for an Emmy!

One of my first blog posts here was the shoot that I did for NBC New York last year. Turns out, that promo, “Day and Night” was just nominated for a New York Emmy Award. Whoa. I’m an Emmy nominated producer! Thanks so much to Matt Boline for the opportunity and you can see the Emmy nominated NBC spot here.

Budgets, timelines, relationships

I’ve been working on some new proposals for film projects, one was with another producer I work with. It’s a bigger project, so she asked me to build out a timeline. Which just struck me as funny, just because I’ve been in the weeds doing a bunch of them on the agency work that I do. I say this a lot on this blog, but it’s worth repeating, whether you are doing art or business or both (I always strive for a little of both), it pays and helps to be organized. I’ve included this art timeline because I like it, but to bring the point home (Art+Timeline= you doing your best work)

Digital tools

If you are like me, you absolutely hate printing out digital jobs. It’s just so stupid, but in the agency environment, that’s what you end up doing. I like these new tools, like A.nnotate, which is probably the best going right now, but it’s also a question of priorities. When you move from spaces to pixels, people have to learn to accept it. That’s the hard part, isn’t it. If anyone else has another online review program for websites, digital projects, anything, I’m all ears….
