Today is the Day!

Hey Gang K* here. So excited for today. Got my tickets for Sex and the City and got them at matinee price! YaY! (movies are overpriced - both in production and in sales... but that's another blog entry for a slow rainy day).

Taking the fiance with me..... yes, my guy *LOVES* Sex and the City. I got him hooked a few years back from the DVD's which I would watch on repeat. I have to admit, I'm a little nervous to see it, I am afraid that it will be sad or tragic with all the death rumors and the idea of losing one of the characters (like Mr. Big whose been rumored most) just makes me sad in my heart. Okay, it's official. I'm a junkie!

Go jump on Fandango people and get yourself a ticket! I promise no spoilers.

We are back...

and moving slowly. Z was incredible. Unlike any other destination we've been to. The food, the people, the location. We are hard at work on getting back to edit deadlines and returning calls so for now we will just leave you with a few photos from our journey which we shared working alongside the wonderful photographer Suzy Clement and Jeff Brown from Brown Hot Events.

Promo: Hello! Lucky

We couldn't leave for the week without sharing some sort of {CINEMA} with you. Earlier this year we had the privilege of creating some promotional materials for the super swell gals Sabrina and Eunice over at Hello! Lucky.

For those of you living in a cave, Hello! Lucky is a super fun, hip and sassy letterpress and custom stationary company run by the most stylish sisters ever. Just check out their ::Blog::

This is one of two films that we created for them. We fell in love with the letterpress process while filming Eunice and Sabrina and have such a deeper respect and love for this printing technique. For us, it's very similar to the care and expertise that goes into shooting Super 8 & 16mm film. Like film, letterpress is a dying craft, but one that is being brought back to life by artists that choose to express their voice through hand crafted work rather than mass production. Though many jump on the bandwagon now, I'm sure you'll see that with Hello! Lucky, the difference is in the details and their couture approach.

{{hmmm... sounds like another company we know of ;) }}

Destination: Zihuatanejo

It's almost comical how much traveling has been going on around here...

We have spent more time on planes, buses, taxi's and tuk-tuks than we have in our own home's for the months of April and May. So with that said, we head back down to our neighbors of the South, this time to the beautiful fishing village of Zihuatanejo, Mexico.

Lots of Super 8 and 16mm film goodness will be had as well as inhalation of guacamole ala poolside when we get a chance to rest.

Our office will be closed until we return on May 27th.

Hasta Luego!

The Wedding Oscars

We are back in the land of Carrie Bradshaw this week (NYC) to do some socialite schmoozing and fashion flaunting of our own this week. Each Spring Modern Bride Magazine has their annual "25 Trendsetters Awards" at a super fabulous hotel in Manhattan complete with red carpet, celebs, paparazzi and wedding industry heavyweights. Truly, this IS the wedding industry event of the year.

We were honored with the Trendsetter Award back in 2006 and since then, Modern Bride has commissioned us to create their "video opener" for the awards show. It's a thrilling and intimidating event because you never know who your going to see or sit next to! Last year we rubbed elbows with Deepak Chopra, met Michael J. Fox & Carolina Herrera {random?!} and in 2006 was greeted with a big kiss on the cheek from none other than Aidan himself..... John Corbett! {: Talk about a freak out! Move over Bo Derek! :}

This year is a special year for us because we actually created 2 videos for the awards one of which was a collaboration with Re:Frame, the organization we Co-Founded with 5 other companies. We can't disclose too much until the event occurs, but we will be sure to give you the inside scoop of who/what/where/huh? and post the videos once the party takes place!
