2014 New York Festivals

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.

This year’s New York International Television and Film Festival had entries from more than 50 countries.  Other winners included ESPN, HBO, The Australian Broadcasting Corporation, ChannelNews Asia, FOX International, Fuji Television Network, 101 East for Al Jazeera English and many others for around the world.

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.

Blue Marble recently completed a corporate image film for Manhattan Associates called, Revolution. We had a short deadline, so we very quickly had to get two guerilla-style crews to NYC for three days of intense shooting. Our goal was to capture as much symbolic and iconic b-roll as we could. Not so much to paint a portrait of New York City, but to create a backdrop for a bold, global message about commerce. (Check out the finished piece.)

Five of us hit the streets to attempt what might otherwise have been impossible without the help of our secret weapon — and this is a biggie — two cars with two local drivers. They knew the streets, they knew the short cuts … it seemed they could park just about anywhere they wanted … and they were always right where we left them when we returned to the car (with trunk open ready to stow our gear). We’d hop into our air-conditioned production office, say, “Roosevelt Island, and step on it”, check our shot list, and off we’d go. It was truly the only way to get the shots we wanted in the time we had.

So, with Cara Barineau, Ben Barineau, Michael Pietrobon, Sam Young, and Danny Corey we had some long and productive days. We shot with Canon DSLRs and of course, a Go Pro. The weather was great, the city looked great, the shots looked great. Oh, and the crew looked great too.

Blue Marble Media Brings Home the Gold (and the Platinum and Silver)

Georgia Department of Economic Development

As we reach the end of 2012 and look back on all we’ve done, we’re pretty proud of our work, but we’re especially excited about the work recently recognized by not one, but two major award competitions.

First up, the 2012 Davey Awards, a prestigious international awards competition, presided over by leaders from top firms in advertising, marketing and media.  This year, competition was fierce with over 4,000 entries from across the US and around the world.  So, we were more than a little excited to have won gold in the Film and Video Sales category for a piece we produced for MergerMarket.  Using motion graphics, we distilled a complex message about the company’s unique software program into a simple story aimed at potential clients.

In the category of Fundraising, our work landed a silver for a video we produced for the HealthStore Foundation.  Shot on location in Kenya, the film introduces investors to the idea of franchised healthcare clinics.  If successful, this sustainable business model has the potential to deliver life saving medical care to underserved children in Kenya and other parts of the world.

Next up, the 2012 Marcom Awards.  The international creative competition for marketing and communication professionals has become one of the largest of its kind in the world, receiving over 6000 entries this year.  We won the highly coveted platinum award in the category of Government Film for Area I, the first video in a series we’re producing for the Georgia Department of Economic Development.  The piece highlights the important work being done by the state’s Center of Innovation for Aerospace .

And, ahem, in the category of Most Ironic, we picked up yet another award – this time a GOLD — for the HealthStore Foundation video, thus proving the Marcom judges just may know a little something the Davey judges don’t!  (Just kidding, we’re proud of all our awards!)
