Last week in Las Vegas, Blue Marble Media principals Ben and Cara Barineau were awarded a Gold World Medal for the company’s video and motion graphics production, The Supply Chain Revolution.  Created for client Manhattan Associates, the corporate image video combines original footage shot in New York City with motion graphics that track with the action in each scene.

Blue Marble was also recently  honored with  a Visionary Award from the Summit Emerging Media Awards for The Supply Chain Revolution.  The Visionary Award is the top honor for each category of the competition.

Keep on Truckin’ … Safely

Lazer post 2[6]

If you think driving a semi looks difficult, you ought to see all the steps drivers have to go through to make sure they protect themselves and the valuable loads they’re delivering.

And we’re not talking about out on the open road.  We’re talking all the things that can go wrong before the truck even leaves yard.  Or when it’s backing the trailer up to the loading dock.  Or attaching a trailer to the truck, for that matter.

Preventing exactly those kinds of things was our mission when the Blue Marble crew spent one very long day filming a training video for Lazer Spot at a warehouse in McDonough, GA.

A great way to end the week -- the big Draft event for Blue Marble's Fantasy Football league!

Jaba the Hut-Hut…Winnipeg Wookies…SlobberKnocker Voerg…These names can mean only one thing. It’s that time of year for Fantasy Football!

Blue Marble held it’s first annual Fantasy Football draft last Friday here at the office. We all crowded around the conference room table, laptops powered up and ready to go with hot wings and beer right alongside.

The competition was fierce as we sat in silence, everyone contemplating his or her next move. The aroma of hot wings hung in the air as the top player picks started to dwindle.

The level of fantasy football expertise varied widely amongst this group. Some of us studied for hours while others were still asking, “What’s a wide receiver?” After the draft we congratulated one of our producer’s for winning “Yahoo’s Best Draft Award”. This perplexed some of us as he drafted 3 kickers!

Needless to say, this was just the “kickoff” to what is sure to be an action-packed season here at Blue Marble.

The level of concentration was impressive!
