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.

James Franco and Seth Rogen. Naked and Afraid. Must see.

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...

Anna Kendrick: Behind the Scenes of the Mega Huge Game Day Ad Newcastle Almost Made

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:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K1qwjx6xUtU

Enjoy. Some ideas to be inspired by :)

Go behind the scenes of the Mega Huge Football Ad Newcastle BROWN ALE almost made with the mega huge celebrity who almost starred in it. See more at IfWeMade...

1 inch tape. D2. DAT.

If you remember these these things, you might enjoy this!
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.

Turner Halfway Through Upfront Deals; Fox Effectively Done

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.
