    A packed crowd at a midnight screening Sunday of director Oren Peli's no-budget, ghosts-in-the-house horror film "Paranormal Acticity" screamed at all the right places, then chain-smoked cigarettes outside Slamdance's ramshackle Main Street HQ in order to decompress.

  • The Business of Movie Titles

    Branding

    It's risky to "Think Different" and choose a movie title of varying font cases; especially one that makes searching the web ten times harder, even if your movie features a celebrity actor playing one of America's best-known entrepreneurs.

    "People talk about how there's no flair in bar tending but there's this other type of flair," says "Hey Bartender" filmmaker Douglas Tirola, who also produced the movie via his company, 4th Row Films. "It's so sexual and beautiful the way bartenders stir and shake their drinks and put the ingredients in the shaker."

Spark Innovation create Pop Up Centers of the Universe

Spark Innovation

Seek out creative teams.

My storytelling bridges the communities of branding, media, marketing and design. I collaborate with creative teams, whether joining Boxoffice Magazine critics at Sundance or providing verbal identity, scriptwriting and storytelling to design agency Kaleidoscope. I bring a diverse, creative tool kit of storytelling, titling and brand enhancement to designers and strategy directors in order to ignite innovation and exceed client benchmarks.

Like many creatives, I spend time, energy and resources attending festivals, conferences and workshops. I think back to talking with a documentary filmmaker from Mumbai at the Sundance Film Festival and asking him if it was worth all his energy and money to travel around the globe in order to attend the Park City, Utah-based festival. The question grows in importance with the ability to build communities of advocates digitally.

Visiting Museum of Contemporary Art Denver.

I think about centers of the universe and their changing roles in the digital landscape. It’s especially relevant to me as I work in a global landscape but choose to hang my hat in Cincinnati.

So I aspire to create Pop Up Centers of the Universe wherever I’m working, city to city or at my Cincinnati office. Share your creative work with your digital community. Invite their insights. There’s no predicting how far innovative projects can reach across crowdsourcing landscapes or the number of advocates it can pick up along the journey.

Creative Teams

Embrace new ideas from project designers and directors.

I treat each client project as an opportunity to learn from leading artists and strategists. I freely share my ideas and experience with team members and clients in order to ignite innovation.

Storytelling Create Iconic Awareness Architecture

Storytelling

“Sugar” directors Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck  join me at 92YTribeca.

I embrace transmedia storytelling and work tirelessly to generate and engage communities of advocates and followers on digital landscapes. With our media devices of choice, smartphones, tablets, laptops, we can create pop up centers of the universe around our personal work. Yet, I’m also a classicist who sees power in unique, place-based events and programming like my inaugural film series for 92YTribeca.

Transmedia storytelling is about creating new content models in media, advertising and marketing.
Portrait with Gotta Dance CrewI seek out incredible subjects and use my experience and creative tools to help them become iconic and influential.

In the multiplatform, 24/7, digital landscape of streaming conferences, immediate Twitter feeds and Tumblr posts; engaging storytelling is more essential than ever.

Embrace transmedia storytelling and you’ll stop worrying and love multiple platforms.

Good storytelling matters and can ignite the first wave of successful brand identity. Storytelling plays a role in quality management and good execution. The most successful way to gain positive recognition is through a good story.
