…It’s Movie Monday: Choices?

Choices is a fantastic commercial for United Way Romania that shows the effects of the little decisions that we make every day, and how they can lead us (or others) down a path that we’d never expect:

The entire spot was actually made with paper cut outs, and they made a short ‘making of’ video to show you how:

…Snuff is bringing Cassie Wright to life?

I’ve talked about Chuck Palahniuk’s Snuff before, but now that his some of the book’s marketing is starting to see the light of day, I thought it was worth a revisit.

If you remember, Snuff is about Cassie Wright, a porn priestess who intends to cap her legendary career by breaking the world record for serial fornication.

To give Cassie’s character a little more believability, two videos were created to promote Cassie’s previous work:

…You need to offset the evil?

Offset The Evil

Apparently Sega has decided that their new game, Condemned 2, is so evil, that if you’re going to play it, you need to offset that evil by visiting a site filled with ponies, clowns, rainbows and happiness.

I guess we’re all safe then…right?

…Advertising needs more moustaches?

…iPaper is a PDF killer?

iPaper

Apparently the web world is fed up with PDFs, because alternatives are popping up left and right.

The latest entry into this world is iPaper, which aims to entirely replace the PDF.

The basic idea is that, like a YouTube video, iPaper documents can be embedded into any existing web page through a Flash widget, and can display PDF, Word, PowerPoint, Excel, and other document formats without the need for separate readers.

Features include viewing documents without downloading any additional software, monetizing documents with integrated advertisements, social aspects with a built in share functionality, enhanced security, and easy integration.

Edit: Box.net, a free online storage and file sharing site, is one of the first sites to embrace the iPaper technology. You can now view any of your PDF, Word, Excel, or Power Point documents that you have stored on Box.net using iPaper.
