When work isn’t work...
Got a private tour deep in the #Smithsonian’s unseen collection for #HistoryChannel and got to check out some extremely rare guitars. Prince’s, Van Halen’s, Sting’s, and others. Nerd chills activated.
Know an Alan? You've been warned...
Fact: Most homicides are committed by Alans!

#insomniatv at #hp in Palo Alto. The building was built around a 100 year old oak rather than cut it down :) pretty cool. West coasters are so eco.
After years of cutting trailers for other people's shows, we are excited to be producing our own. Lifetime has green-lit our first show!
SING IT! Is an 8-part docuseries on high school a cappella. We are producing this with the amazing people at Studio Lambert. Yes, our pitch… was perfect. More info and more puns to follow. #SingIt! Deke Sharon @Diana_Preisler, #InsomniaTV
That's a wrap! Check out the special edition Naked And Afraid episode with Rogen and Franco this Sunday at 8 on Discovery.
Find out what happens when Seth Rogen and James Franco take it all off for the 21-day Naked And Afraid survival challenge. Then, catch The Interview Movie, opening Christmas 2014.
We are thrilled to be working on this absolutely hilarious piece with our friends at Discovery! Enjoy this tease and don't miss the extended piece airing soon inside Naked and Afraid! You've never seen Seth Rogen or James Franco like this...
James Franco and Seth Rogen. Naked and Afraid. Must see.
Their new movie - The Interview - opens on Christmas Day. This episode of "Naked And "Afraid" airs on Discovery on December 7th during its Mega Week. The two will be joining GMA in December... clothed, we imagine.
It was an honor and a privilege! Great working with the team at CBS Sports to produce this spot.
CBS Sports says goodbye to the bull riding legend.

Insomnia was thrilled to work with Lifetime UK and Leanin.org/ on the Ban Bossy campaign. It was great to work with so many dedicated, inspiring talent like Beyoncé, Jane Lynch, Jennifer Gardner, Condoleezza Rice, Secretary Arne Duncan, Jimmie Johnson and Sheryl Sandberg.
Beyoncé and her newfound feminism strike again. (Hooray!) In a new video for Sheryl Sandberg’s Lean In Foundation (in partnership with Lifetime TV), Sandberg has...
Just when you thought the zombie genre could be taken no further:
Creative over budget. 2 examples:
There's been a lot of buzz about the new Anna Kendrick Superbowl ad for New Castle Brown ale. It's a great concept and even with her fee was obviously cheap to produce in the scheme of things: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9g9wXBkdWEg
Here's a FedEx Superbowl ad, from WAY back that cost even less and originally broke the mold in the ironic less-is-more vein:
Enjoy. Some ideas to be inspired by :)

An interesting parallel...
Underneath the elevated West Side Highway at 135th and 12th Avenue I found this telephone graveyard. At least a one hundred old, battered pay phones were locked behind a fence near the Park's Department building. I almost took these on my iPhone, but my irony levels are dangerously low these days.
On cable vs. Broadcast...
This reminds me of a shoot I did with Jerry Stiller (that’s right, father not son) years ago. In negotiating his rate, I tried to persuade him that since it was "only for cable" it should be lower. “Are you crazy?” he said. “Cable’s getting even bigger!"
With much of the broadcast upfront market still unsettled—ABC and NBC are still ironing out their pricing strategies—some top-tier cable players have quietly begun piecing together deals with major agencies.
