So this morning life after Copa90 begins for me, I decided to step away from the job as Head Of Content there, and already it’s a decision that seems to be paying off with a couple of exciting new projects.
Also, very excitingly I’ve started a business with the man who got me into this business, my Dad, he’s just finished being a key part of the London 2012 team and is for the first time in his life not working for a big organisation, so we’ve got a couple of things that are exciting us, which we’ll fill you in on in good time!
Hope all is well with you, and remember if you need anything producedbypete then just get in touch!
Not posted on here for a while, I’ve been busying away on a new project over at BigBalls, the time has finally come for it to go live, it’s a brand new, fresh approach to football content, broadcast on YouTube. If you are interested then take a look here!
I am really proud of the hard work that the amazing team that we’ve assembled have done to deliver some really interesting, fresh content about the biggest sport in the world.
That’s all for me, I hope all is well with you!
So it’s been mad busy, just back from a great road trip with TalkSPORT, running the trip with the Drive Production team, we travelled 1500 miles across Europe, did 4 banging shows across 6 countries and had a massive laugh on the way, take a look here
While I was away, Chasing Rainbows the Hollyoaks show I produced was on, along with the Maverick Sabre episode, you can see Chasing Rainbows here I am so proud of it, and Colin O’Toole the director who I worked with on it is brilliant!
Now I’m settling back in at BigBalls, a very exciting Youtube Football proposition is what I’m working on, more about that in the future!
Hope all is good with you!
Just completed a wicked little shoot for Hollyaoks, we’ve made a special E4 episode called Chasing Rainbows, and I’ve also been working on the Main show doing the Maverick Sabre storyline which was great, he’s a really strong artist, and amazing live.
I’ve also been working on an end of Season Review for the Nivea campaign which should be out in the next few weeks, and on Sunday I take to the road with the TalkSPORT drive team for a road trip to the European Championships so lots going on!
When I get back from that I should be starting on a new project I’ve not been allowed to talk about thus far, but it will be back at BigBalls and is quite exciting!
Keep your eyes on E4 at 1900 on Thursday the 7th for my special episode, and the Maverick gig stuff is on Channel 4 on Friday at 1830 so if you can then take a look at that too!
Hope you’re all enjoying the summer, long may it continue!
Big love as ever
So I got news tonight of another award win for The Great Football Experiment, a project that I spent a lot of last year leading for Bigballs. We have won the Best Digital Award and the Sports Industry Awards. This is the biggest award the campaign could have won and we beat some pretty stiff opposition, so I’m throughly delighted for all who worked on the project from all the agencies, to those within BigBalls, but mostly the boys from Ivory FC.
In other news, the Hollyoaks jobs are going really well, shooting them over the next three weeks with a wicked Director called Colin O’Toole, check his work out here.
After that, I’ll be back at BigBalls working on another very interesting football project, so 2012 is looking like it’s going to be Ballsy!
Big love as always.
Happy April one and all,
Did you all enjoy the British Summer, we got two whole weeks this year!
The Sun has certainly been shining for me recently, been working developing the film and am now back up in my adopted homeland of Liverpool working on a couple of projects for Hollyoaks. I’ll explain more when I can but there is lots of exciting stuff going on. And I’ve just booked tickets for the Superbowl in Feb 2013, so that is VERY exciting!
Interesting news just dropped about Product placement finally getting going on TV, so many years after we premiered it on KateModern, it’s good to see good old traditional drama getting in on the act, the guys at Hollyoaks are working hard on getting more placement, should be interesting.
Thanks for stopping by, HUT HUT
So things are moving at pace this year, our film is coming along and we hope to shoot it before the Olympics in London, but we may get beaten to the bang by those carrying the Olympic flame!
I’m also working back up in Liverpool at Lime Pictures on a very exciting project, more to follow about that soon, and this was a lovely first email to receive of the day (apart from all the spam I get overnight!)
We are pleased to announced that NIVEA FOR MEN’s Great Football Experiment has won a Hollis Sponsorship Award for Best Digital Activation in a Sponsorship Campaign.
We were up against some great competition including NatWest’s Secret Cricketer and Barclays Football which makes winning this award a fantastic achievement. It is a testament to the innovative thinking, creativity and hard work of everyone involved in bringing the Great Football Experiment to life, so thank you!
We have also been shortlisted for two more awards that are due to take place in May, so let’s hope this is just the start!
Sports Industry Awards – 2nd May
Marketing Week Engage Awards – 22nd May
So a good start to Wednesday, and the Sun is out in Liverpool (The big yellow ball in the sky, not the paper!)
Hope you’re all well.
