The Glee Cross-Media Campaign
The Sky Creative 'Glee' Campaign team has been awarded Gold for the 'Best Cross-Media Campaign'. Fantastic. It's always great to win awards, but the reason I'm especially pleased with being part of this collaborative team is that integrating campaign work cross-media often doesn't work too well, has a bias to one media over another, or logistically runs out of control.
It takes a lot of people to work together to make a campaign of this size, in particular I would like to highlight the collaborative strategy work from DennyTu at Sky Creative who kept it together and made sure that all areas delivered a joined-up experience. This award shows that the cross-media campaign's at Sky Creative are working and the integration of all creative areas is essential for the future of campaigns.
Congratulations to everyone who worked on the campaign at Sky Creative and the Sky1 Digital Entertainment team!

Here's a taster of some of the great integrated campaign work coming out of Sky Creative, my daytime home. As a Digital Art Director at Sky Creative I'd particularly like to add a big shout-out to all those who worked on the digital elements of these two projects.
In Glee, check out the Glee Twitter Visualiser and Yearbook, and in Treasure Island, check out the cool Aurasama augmented trailer...

'Introducing the Posterous Inspiration Center - A collection of the best uses of Posterous'
The Cinémathèque Française is currently running a major exhibition on Stanley Kubrick http://www.cinematheque.fr/fr/expositions-cinema/kubrick-exhibition/stanley-k... - and for the online part of the exhibition they have collated fan-art inspired by Kubrick's work...
The best Kubrick web creations
"The Cinémathèque française launches an ambitious project: to present on its website the best web creation on the Kubrick legend. Graphic artists, video artists, stylists, plastic artists: a whole generation of creative talents has turned to the work of Kubrick over the past 15 years, paying homage to him, questioning his work, remixing it, etc. The adoration of these artistes for Kubrick will be the occasion to highlight the modernity of a film director adopted by a host of netsurfers all over the world, and whose works will be united for the first time in the same place." http://www.cinematheque.fr/expositions-virtuelles/kubrick_web/index.php
They have included three of my mock Kubrick book covers, 2001: A Space Odyssey, A Clockwork Orange and The Shining.
As well as being my favourite Kubrick films, they all contain layers of visual symbolism both iconic and open to personal interpretation.
"Reactions to art are always different because they are always deeply personal...the film becomes anything the viewer sees in it." (Stanley Kubrick)
For the 2001: A Space Odyssey cover, I visualised the final space trip as it offered the most interesting and psychedelic space for graphical expression. http://www.cinematheque.fr/expositions-virtuelles/kubrick_web/item.php?id=230
Kubrick is Graphic, in all senses of the word - his filmmaking is a design process that realises his artistic vision. He distils every component, in every scene, in every film into exactly what it needs to be, meticulously crafting and reducing until what is left is the pure communication of its message. My aim for these fantasy covers was to produce a distilled, graphical image to represent each film and to place the style somewhere in the near past.
...and here's a sample of some of the cool and varied work in the online exhibition
