Ready Set Rocket and Kenneth Cole Talk Advertising with Google Glass

KCOLE TOP

The very phrase “advertising with Google Glass” may seem like a contradiction, but Kenneth Cole recently became the first brand to do just that with the help of Men’s Health magazine and New York-based digital agency Ready Set Rocket, which collaborated with Cole’s in-house creative team on a Glass-powered project to help launch its new fragrance “Mankind.”

We spoke to Ready Set Rocket co-founder and Chief Strategist Alex Lirstman and Robert Genovese, VP of integrated marketing at Kenneth Cole, to learn more about the campaign. (Genovese has also worked in the agency world as a media planner at Wieden+Kennedy and associate media director at MPG.)

Glass Knits Sculptures

Basée à Seattle, l’artiste Carol Milne a inventé une technique pour concevoir des sculptures en verre représentant du tricotage. Elle fait d’abord un modèle en cire qu’elle met dans un moule et qui peut résister à une forte température. Ensuite, elle fait fondre une partie de la cire et intègre du verre à l’intérieur du moule. Elle place le tout dans un four à céramique à 1400-1600 degrés Fahrenheit. Et pour finaliser son travail, elle laisse la sculpture refroidir pendant quelques semaines.

'Hunger Games' Studio Lions Gate to Offer Subscription Movie Service Online


Lions Gate Entertainment, the studio behind “Hunger Games,” will start a subscription video service with Tribeca Enterprises, becoming the latest traditional producers to put their films online.

Tribeca Short List will offer Lionsgate and Tribeca movies starting in the first half of 2015 for an undisclosed subscription price, the companies said today in a statement. Lions Gate, based in Santa Monica, California, and New York-based Tribeca, known for the film festival founded by Robert De Niro, will contribute titles and seek movies from around the world.

With Tribeca Short List, the partners join film and TV companies such as Time Warner Inc.’s HBO and CBS Corp. in going after viewers who don’t always have cable TV. HBO said last week its HBO Go mobile product will be available without a cable account, and CBS said it will sell a $5.99-a-month package of programming. This effort is focused on movie buffs.
