Quote for “Entice”

Another guest appearance on…quoted for the band Entice.

“The gentle rock melodies of Entice are a breath of fresh air in a superficial, plastic world that wants everything fast, hard, and loud. The occasional piano accompaniment provides a mellow undertone that is perfectly coupled with Isaac Leland’s vocals.”
– Erin Brown

Interview with Less Than Jake at Warped Tour 2009

Less Than Jake

As a “guest interviewer” for Driven Far Off, I snagged an interview with Less Than Jake at Vans Warped Tour in Ventura, CA on June 28th, 2009.

Here’s a small excerpt:

So, let’s start with your names and instruments.
LTJ: Our names are Roger and J.R. and we play bass and saxophone, respectively. We play with disrespect, but respectfully.

So, Warped Tour…do you have any thoughts, concerns or anticipations?
JR: I have an anticipation; that I anticipate not being able to take a poop in a nice clean toilet.

Check out the whole interview on Driven Far Off.

Hermes Creative Award for Schlotzsky’s Big League Clubz campaign

Matrixx Pictures, Inc. was a platinum winner of the Hermes Creative Awards for the interactive campaign created for Schlotzsky’s Deli.

About the Hermes Creative Awards:
Hermes Creative Awards is an international competition for creative professionals involved in the concept, writing and design of traditional materials and programs, and emerging technologies. Entries come from corporate marketing and communication departments, advertising agencies, PR firms, design shops, production companies, web based innovators and freelancers.

About Schlotzsky’s Big League Clubz campaign:
The goal of this campaign was to spread the word about Schlotzsky’s three new “Big League Clubz” sandwiches – Ham ‘n Turkey, Chick ‘n Turkey, Beef ‘n Bacon – by developing and launching a microsite centered around the sandwiches and an accompanying sweepstakes to win a trip for two to St. Louis, Missouri and a UGC contest to win a personalized mini-bat. The campaign also included a baseball advergame to earn more entries into the sweepstakes as well as a downloadable widget to bring baseball scores and standings to your desktop.

As Associate Producer for Matrixx, I assisted in the development and execution of our social media strategy and monitored the campaign activity and resulting e-mail opt-ins in order to properly allocate our budget and resources to drive the traffic needed. Social seeding efforts included outreaching to baseball bloggers to get campaign coverage, as well as Myspace, Facebook and Twitter promotion.

Well, howdy do!
