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.
So I’ve just finished working with someone who I consider to be THE most exciting prospect in British Music, Smiler. I was lucky enough to work with him as his tour manager for the MOBO Tour 2012, we did 8 shows and took in the majority of mainland Britain.
Being on the tour reminded me how much I enjoy being out and about meeting new people and seeing new musicians doing their thing, Smiler was immense throughout the tour but I also found out about Josh Osho, Cleo Sol, Benny Banks & Clement Marfo and the Frontline. All of them are incredibly talented in their own ways and will be names you’ll hear a lot more of in the next few months.
Smiler has a new mix tape out now called AllIknow which I would suggest that you download, If you like Drake, this boy is for you!
Shout out to Dj Harsh and Meleka who gave the show extra swag (as they say on the street)!
Off skiing tomorrow, then back to the grind of developing the film and some more fun projects I’m involved in developing at the moment!
Big love as ever
