Here's a few fun things to share with you from last week at the Special Olympics. We shot and edited all of this onsite in 4 days. Yikes!
http://www.justinbastien.com/projects/microsoft-2015-special-olympics

Microsoft 2015 Special Olympics-

Justin Bastien's recent collaboration with Microsoft brought him to the Special Olympics World Games in Los Angeles to shoot four inspiring athletes from around the world. Justin captured each of their incredible stories through competition footage and interviews showcasing their passion and dedication to their sports. No distance was too far, no obstacle too difficult, no hurdle too high for these athletes to reach their personal bests.

The four films were shot, edited and scored to original music over the course of four days. We kept pace with the athletes, families and coaches as these emotional stories unfolded on a daily basis. Their heartfelt wins, loses, struggles and triumphs were exciting to follow. The objective of this quick turn around was to share the athletes' stories with the online audience while they followed along on social media and other outlets. Thank you to the Special Olympics, Microsoft and Todd Hannigan, the music composer, for bringing these great stories together.

Moments like these are once in a lifetime and we cannot express our thanks enough. There are definite lessons from the presentation that will be a part of our Crafting a Meaningful Career classes, lectures, and workshops in the future.

- Pete Van Law- Producer, Documentarian- 

Help us finish our film. Time is running out! There’s still time to lend your support.

“FOR THE LIFE OF ME” is a film, documenting real stories about real people - all of them victims of history. But because they are so personal, they provide a link for present and future generations who would otherwise be denied the opportunity to find the parallels within their own lives.

That’s the reason we started this drive, to get individuals, like you to join us and help spread the word to your friends and acquaintances, and urge them to lend their support as well.

We’ve dedicated one of our perks to encourage that: For every $50 you donate, you can choose any institution, organization, school, university, church or synagogue, and we’ll send them a copy of “FOR THE LIFE OF ME”, along with a free Teaching Syllabus.

By making that choice, you’ll be doubling the benefit. Not only will you be helping us, but also you’ll be giving that institution a teaching tool through which this intensely personal story can act as universal model to reach young and old alike.
I hope you’ll lend your support. Here’s where to go: http://bit.ly/1zSg3oO

Dynamite Starfish's photo
- Leslie Kim- Graphic Designer, Entrepreneur

Hey guys! You may have already heard, but the Bishop tees are FINALLY here! And girls, there are tanks too.

If you didn’t know, I partner up with a different organization for each shirt to donate a portion of its profits to. I chose the Friends of the Inyo for this particular shirt because they do an awesome job keeping the Eastern Sierras a place we want to keep going back to. Their work isn’t always about climbing, but as people who partake of the outdoors, it’s important to preserve the wild places of the world.

New women's tanks and men's tees are in the Dynamite Starfish online shop!
Use code BISHOP for 10% off.
If you're picking up from me directly, I will refund your shipping cost.
Thanks everyone for being a part of this adventure and for all of your much appreciated support. Love you all!

“Tony, I wanted to share that Monday, I’ll be joining the production team at Maximum Fun, who are independent products of radio shows and podcasts including Bullseye with Jesse Thorn which airs on NPR. I’m really excited about the opportunity as it’s really in line with what I have been hoping to do for the last several years. I’ll still be producing my podcast, but I am hoping that this opportunity provides me the experience to not only improve the production quality of the show, but also branch out into other things as well.

Thanks for your continued support and friendship.

Take care and all the best.”

Design awards, technology and execution risk metrics present a strong avenue for identifying venture capital investment opportunities.

(Editor’s note: Here is the introduction from Soren’s article in the Huffington Post): “The INDEX: Award and Why It Matters for Innovation.”
The INDEX: Award inspires designers and business leaders to pursue breakthrough innovations for some of the world's major challenges. However, is the INDEX: Award selection process conducive to identifying breakthrough innovations that will make their way toward successful implementation?

Among the finalists from proven innovative businesses were home batteries from Tesla, cardboard 3-D glasses from Google and a flexible living space from IKEA. Concept finalists representing lesser-known businesses included a man-made leaf by Silk Leaf, a waste credit market by New Hope Ecotech, and a cheap paper microscope for identifying illnesses by Foldscope.”

Tony Luna Creative- Update 6-25-15

We have a particularly robust blog this time so let’s get started. Here are the headlines for the latest news in this Update:

- Pete Van Law has put out an urgent request so he can raise the rest of the money needed for his insightful film “For the Life of Me.” There are only six days left to reach the Indigogo goal of $188,500.00 for his documentary of the compellingly humane story of his world wide search of his background and the incredible things he learned along the way that he wants to get out to the public, to schools, and to religious institutions

- Justin Bastien brings us up to date about the wide-ranging projects he has been working on that include a global project for Microsoft’s Global Social Media campaign, as well as spots for Audi, Duracell, Wells Fargo and a new social media app named WAMI. It was not that long ago that Justin left our classes, cameras in hand, and set out on his quest to photograph and film the world and we are very proud of his accomplishments!…

- Marcia Loots-Serna informs us of the many assignments she has been involved in lately as a Creative Director including six campaigns for nail polish brands, work with a company making much needed loans to veterans, and a project for a horse ranch

- Ibarionex Perello’s incredibly successful and in-depth podcasts of photography luminaries “The Candid Frame” has recently joined a network of other photography podcasts called TWIP (This Week in Photography) which will give his informative and inspirational interviews a much wider reach…

- Soren Petersen has provided us with links to two of his impressive presentations: “Design Driven Startups – Performance” at the Danish Engineering Association in February, and “The INDEX: Award and Why It Matters for Innovation” featuring his research on technology and execution risk metrics for identifying venture capital investment opportunities…

- Ulrike Kerber sent us a link to the Skechers - Relaxed Fit commercial she was commissioned to do that features Ringo Starr. Take a look and enjoy!…

*****

Now here are the stories behind the headlines:
- Pete Van Law, Producer- PAY IT FORWARD.
Only six days left to reach our goal of $188,500.00 on Indiegogo!
Help us finish our film. It could change lives.
Maybe yours.

Hi Tony, We could really use your help. That’s why we’re asking for your support by contributing to our fund raiser. We want to get my film out to the public, to schools and religious institutions. This is a powerful story of discovery and deception, of death and deliverance; of one man’s world-wide search for his true identity and the personal obstacles he overcame.

We’ve worked for over a decade on this compelling 50-minute documentary and we’re almost there.  Would you make a donation that will allow us to finish it and make it available to broader audiences by giving free copies to schools and religious institutions across the country?

For details you can go directly to our Indiegogo page by clicking on http://bit.ly/1zSg3oO
You can donate through our Indiegogo Site, but we also accept checks.

Thanks, and...

Regards,

Pete V.

Tony: Here's a little summary for you in the meantime. Some of this could be inspiring for your classes. There just might be hope for us. ;)
Besides wrapping up Microsoft's Global Social Media campaign, I also worked on four spots recently for Audi, Duracell, Wells Fargo and a cool new social media app called WAMI. I am working on pitching a TV show show, photographing the Dalai Lama for his 80th birthday next month, have a big directing project in the works with Ford and a really cool surf trip to the Aleutian Islands for Patagonia. Life is definitely not boring. We are doing an agency tour this week in LA and SF meeting with a bunch of ad agencies to promote the directing and photography work, as well as, our new production company. I started the production company with a good friend of mine and one of my favorite Art Directors of all time, John Doyle from NY. He is great guy and so creative. I am super lucky to be working with him. There's a link to the Core Collective at the bottom of the page.

- Marcia Loots-Serna, Creative Director- Thanks so much Tony. What I've been doing lately

- Worked on 6 campaigns for Nail polish brands.
- I am actually working with a company making loans to Veterans. I'm really happy we can help save and provide vets with loans. They also do a lot to serve vets and support organizations. A cause I can believe in. Especially since so many are in need of help.
- Also a horse ranch in the Bu that is really cool called OneGunRanch (was where Guns and Roses lived)-but is very full of animals, gardens, organic and grows their plants on the cycle of the moon. Fun place.
Anyway that is an update with what I'm up to.

Thanks again-

Dear Tony, I grew up with the music of the Beatles and always loved their music. Now I had the chance to work on a commercial for Skechers - Relaxed Fit that features Ringo Starr. Ad agency SelectNY hired me to come up with ideas for the end page. The :30 sec commercial turned out pretty fun. Check it out, see link below!
