Wyatt Clarke & Jones

This morning James came in from Wyatt Clarke & Jones to show us some books, including Jenny Van Sommers, Sophie Ebrard and Todd Antony.
Really nice books. particularly Sophie's she has a nice human feel about her shots. Anyway, I'm not here to judge, just inform. Take a look for yourselves...

YouTube Producers Toolbox Tech Talk at Google

Yesterday I went to the Producer Toolbox for YouTube 'morning of insight and inspiration for Interactive & Film producers'. It was hosted by Alison Lomax with talks by Charlotte Mart and a bloke I can't remember his name, as soon as I can find it out I will add it here, sorry I am more than rubbish with names and I forgot to write his down!

It was really interesting (maybe more so to me, a newbie to this stuff), they touched on some of the things which had already had a presentation on internally here at Albion, a couple of the social media planners gave us a talk on what was changing in YouTube (and other social site changes), so it was great to have a refresher of these and this YouTube event was much more in-depth than our in-house one. I really thought there would be more interactivity as the invite promised 'mix of presentations, interactive sessions and demo stations...' however I will say after the presentations I do feel I could create my own brand YouTube channel now, and I know what is available in the 3 channel options. I made loads of note and they gave us this great reference tool book:

Making Pictures

Yesterday we had Tim from Making Pictures come in and show us some new books.

We saw the book of a new signing of theirs, Sam Hoffman. some really interesting compositions and builds, a new talent to look out for.

Also the brilliant Channel 4 Paralympics work from The Wade Brothers, I really love this work, I was more inspired by the paralympics probably more than the olympics, and these images are particularly inspiring - now, off to my spin class!

Dolce & Gabbana - Marie Claire cover

This months edition of Marie Claire has an in-bilt TV commercial in the cover wrap by Dolce and Gabbana. They have placed a small screen within the pages and when you open the cover (like one of those annoying greeting cards with sound when you open them) the film plays - close it and open it again and it re-sets itself.

I believe this is a subscribers-only edition as my wife had to go and collect it at the post office and it was not in the usual plastic sleeve.
