Nike Write the Future, lo mejor que vi en mucho tiempo


nosostarget.com

The mood of a nation. The decline of a would-be hero. Fame. Infamy. The possible futures of the world’s top footballers are played out in epic fashion. All hang in the balance. Only the moments on the pitch will decide what really happens. And the margins for error could not be more narrow. Directed by Alejandro González Iñárritu (Babel, 21 Grams) and featuring the incredibly unique music of Dutch rockers, Focus, the film shows how one moment on the pitch can be the catalyst for ripple effects felt around the world.

Avatar producer explains how to market to kids despite PG-13 rating


A PG-13 movie is the sweet spot for maximizing the revenue of a film. Movies that are rated “R” will by definition have a narrower audience, while any child with a parent can see a movie rated PG-13. “We were very conscious as we went through Avatar not to make an R-rated movie,” Landau explained. “There is a version that could have been R-rated, and if Jim [Cameron] had the opportunity to go back, he would change True Lies. True Lies is an R-rated movie, although you don’t think of it that way. We were very conscious about making [Avatar] accessible.”

3D needs to be planned for, not added later

Landau also had strong words about films that tried to quickly add 3D effects near the end of the process. In his world, 3D is inevitable, and he said that just as wearing sunglasses is a part of going to the beach, the same could be said for going to the movies. We asked about films with poorly done 3D turning the audience off the technology.

“I think that ultimately people shouldn’t have to think about 3D or not-3D, I think it should all be in 3D,” he said. “I think right now you’re doing a disservice to the consumer and the filmmaker by trying to convert movies hastily into 3D.” He brings up Clash of the Titans, where the conversion process was attempted in seven weeks, without any input from the film’s director.

“Converting a movie from 2D to 3D is not a technical process. It is a creative process,” Landau explained. “You have to involve the creators into the process. If you want a movie to be in color, would you ever shoot it in black-and-white and convert it?”

He sums up his feelings on 3D simply. “For us, 3D is a window into a world, not a world coming out of a window. We want the screen plane to disappear when you’re watching our movie, not for you to be ducking during every scene.”

What Keanu Reeves Can Teach us About Personal Branding

Fill a role

He plays variations of himself in every movie he stars in. So, a casting agent needs an A-list actor to play an out of touch, emotionally dead but likeable character? Keanu gets a call.

Lesson to learn: Fill a void. Be that person who is the go-to person for a very specific service. Maybe you have a knack for hand-drawn type or resume design. If an Art Director needs someone to create some original artwork for an editorial spread ( or a new resume) you become the person to call.
Do one thing really well

He has (knowingly or not) embraced the typecast he has been given. His detached acting style makes for a perfect cop, alien and confused “Chosen One.”

Lesson to learn:If you are a killer illustrator, immerse yourself in illustrative work. Develop a body of work that has a distinct style and point of view. Provide tutorials, design freebies and inspirations for people to look at. It goes hand in hand with filling a void.

Keanu Reeves. The man. The myth. The subject of many drinking games. He’s known for his stoic gaze and monotone voice. For a lot of people this is considered a negative but I think there is value in what the man does. He’s solid. Don’t like Keanu? You wouldn’t be a movie ticket to one of his movies. He’s built a image based on reliability and consistency with the occasional pleasant surprise. Sound familiar? Starbucks or Apple, anyone? He’s built the perfect personal brand and we can learn something from his career highs and lows.

¿Qué futuro le espera al Blu-ray?

La tecnología prometía cambiar la forma de ver las películas, cuando llegó a la Argentina hace tres años. Los especialistas analizan por qué aún no se popularizó y cómo debe evaluarse la reaparición de los reproductores de DVD.

por Julieta Schulkin

En 2007, llegaba a la Argentina, de la mano de Sony, el primer reproductor de discos Blu-ray, el modelo BDP-S1E, para uso hogareño. Se trataba de un equipo capaz de reproducir películas pregrabadas de alta definición, soportando formatos DVD, DVD+RW/+R, DVD-RW/-R, AVCHD, MP3 y JPEG; con una salida de video HDMI y una salida de video componente análoga 1080i (entrelazada), para los HDTV que no cuentan con HDMI.

Tres años después, la tecnología Blu-ray no se ha popularizado aún. Inclusive, la desaparición del DVD no es una realidad como muchos lo han pronosticado. Todo lo contrario. Al respecto, Federico Bersaiz, Marketing Manager Audio, Video & Multimedia de Philips Argentina, comenta: “El Blu-ray es la evolución del DVD. Yo mismo me pregunté en varias ocasiones si la desaparición del DVD era realmente tal. La respuesta que me han dado desde la central de Philips, en Holanda, es que el Blu-ray va a ser el sustento de la tecnología 3D y que el soporte tendrá continuidad”. Cabe recordar que Philips es co-fundador de la Blu-ray Disc Association y ha tenido una activa participación en el desarrollo de la tecnología y el desarrollo del estándar Blu-ray Disc.
