Expo DVD

I did not end up going to Shanghai to see the Expo, but bought the DVD from a news-stand in Guangzhou instead!

Can’t wait to watch it and be inspired by all the architecture of the pavilions etc!

Let’s Colour by Dulux

A 2-minute film by Dulux – Let’s Colour Campaign by Euro RSCG London.

Love the vibrant colours!

And just fyi – all the people in the film are real people who got down to doing all the dirty work.

To complement the film – they also did 4 documentary videos film which demonstrates how universal colour is to different cultures etc. The below video delves into the deep relationship the people of India have with colour.

There is also their blog here which documents their behind-the-scenes stories and also practically anything about colour :)

We all need some colours in our lives to brighten up..don’t we?

Magic of Movie-Making

So Iron Man’s house looks really posh perched on this edge of a hill, but it doesn’t exist in real life! It’s all CG! The film’s director Jon Favreau explains that the exterior shots of the house are keyed in on, ” a bluff called Point Dume in Malibu that is a National Park, so people in Los Angeles will recognize it. It’s sort of like the best spot and nobody is allowed to build there, but we put a digital house there.”

Sighs, we all got fooled, hoping that there is some element of reality to it. Guess we all secretly wish to own a piece of heaven like this ourselves.

Here is another video from Perception (the studio that did part of the visual effects for Iron Man 2) that show a few behind the scenes shots of the technology behind Iron Man 2.
Man, can’t imagine how hilarious the actual acting scenes were when they were all holding dummy ‘gadgets’! hah!

Diesel Cam vs. Levi’s Like

So Levi’s has given online shopping a brand new experience by having ‘FB Like’ button on each and every single item on their online shop so that you can share with your FB friends what you like and vice versa, see what your friends like; while Diesel, on the other hand, has raised the bar even higher – by incorporating FB into a brick and-mortar outlet.


“This is the Diesel store in Spain and while people like Levi’s have been busy building in the new Facebook ’like’ functionality into their online stores, Diesel has been integrating Facebook into a real-world store and they’ve called it Diesel Cam. It’s a touchscreen system that sits outside the change rooms and allows customers to take photos of themselves, crop them to their liking, add a comment and then to instantly upload them to Facebook. It’s essentially a social mirror and ties perfectly into how the current shopping experience is evolving!”

Ingenious way of jobhunting

This guy is just ingenious to come up with such an idea to jobhunt! You just have to give it to him man.


“This jerk (copywriter/director) got a job at Y&R New York by playing to the egos of Gerry Graf, David Droga, Tony Granger, Ian Reichenthal and Scott Vitrone. And then he won two pencils and a Clio for doing it.

Brownstein bought Google ad words for the creative directors’ names, which cost him $6. “No one else was bidding on (the names),” he tells us, “so I got the top spot for like 10 cents a click.” This got him interviews with everyone except Granger. Reichenthal and Vitrone are both at Y&R NY and the rest is history.”

Scandinavian Apartment

I love Scandinavian interior design! Simple, uncluttered and cosy! The big windows add sunshine to the whole apartment. Wouldn’t this brighten anybody’s day? Even Monday blues do not exist in a house like this.
