Nailed It!

Foundation Editor Suzie Moore and Sr. Assistant Editor B Stover recently entered a Make an Ad contest for Sally Hansen… and WON a top spot among the finalists!  The brand purchased their spot, along with 5 others, for use in an upcoming campaign. Brittany “B” says, “We entered the contest because we wanted to make beauty products appealing in a new and different way.” Click the pic to view the spot!

B and Suzie co-directed “Salon Effects Fashion Show” and shot it on the stage at Foundation Content. “Being a part of the directing process was so satisfying because it allowed me to see the whole idea come to life!”, says B. “I wasn’t even sure if we were going to go through with shooting the idea at first, but when I saw the script that B wrote, there was no choice but to film it!”, Suzie continues.

B and Suzie collaborated on the editorial and graphics for the spot – Check it out here!

Come Out and Play!

From Romanian director Alex Rotaru, comes the delightful story of an amateur piano contest for people over the age of 30 hosted by the Van Cliburn Foundation.   “They Came to Play” took home awards for Best Documentary from both the Bucharest and the SENE film festivals and has been met with rave reviews!

Moore Is Our Champion

Senior Assistant Editor, Suzie Moore, recently submitted a piece to the Splice Capades and placed as First runner up! If you are not familiar, Splice Capades is an annual competition in which assistant editors show off their editing chops by “splicing” two different films together to create a :90 trailer! This year’s mash-up featured the films “Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy” and “Network”.

Suzie says of the experience, “I just love Steve Carrell so when I watched the movies I knew I wanted to do something funny with him as the main character. It was a lot of fun to put together. As first runner up I won a blu-ray player!” Her trailer is absolutely hilarious, so be sure to check it out at the link above!!

There were 25 entries from assistants in Chicago. We’re proud of Suzie every day – this is just “splicing” on the cake!

It’s a Mad World…

…full of MAD MEN!

But we’re interested in one in particular.

Our friend, Jilon Ghai, an actor in Los Angeles, has submitted an audition for a contest to appear on Mad Men! Mad Men is an Emmy award-winning original series on AMC. It was created by Matthew Weiner and it is one of the most clever commentaries on the “Golden Age” of advertising I’ve ever seen!
