A fragrance launch in Greenpoint

Because of Brooklyn's big worldwide popularity, clients have begun to invite their guests, press & influencers to the borough for events. Here it is YSL Beaute for the international press launch of their new Men's fragrance... 'Y', see for yourself:

When our agency friends from shortcut in Paris suggested Greenpoint we were excited to stay in Brooklyn and produce the press conference there! With the vibe perfectly complementing the message and visual ad campaign for YSL's 'Y' fragrance this show was well liked all around.

Saint-Gobain's World Tour Stop in Philadelphia

When French glass maker Saint-Gobain's celebrated its 350th Anniversary with a World Tour and stop in Philadelphia, we were chosen to manage the entire production onsite. Permitting, architectural planning, city and municipal interface, setup flow, crew coordination & hire, infrastructure support with a few last minute 'odds and ends' sprinkled in... here's a clip of the show's Shanghai setup.
French conceived by agency FC2 and Czech built by Swiss firm Nussli this was no small event, but well received by 100k plus visitors and a very happy Saint-Gobain USA team.

WhiteWall-Lumas at Javits Center

...for the PDN photo show at New York's Javits Convention Center came WhiteWall a printing, framing and artwork firm from Berlin, born out of better known art company Lumas. With only two weeks planning time we pulled off the cross-Atlantic implementation of the idea. Large visuals worked well, like magnets giving proof to the popularity of the booth and confirming the important presence at this show.

A Little Sparrow's Big City World

From the Vault: The Maybach World Premiere

Some shows belong into 'The Book' of Great Shows! And the Maybach launch is guaranteed a place in it! Six months after 9/11 our friends from OSK and Daimler decided to commit to New York City. The plan: Bring the world's car & luxe press to the Big Apple for a spectacular: 1st Park the new ultra-lux Maybach sedan in a glass container on top of the QE2 ocean liner, 2. cruise across the Atlantic, and 3. when in New York pick up the glass box with a SkyCrane helicopter. Here's a short film:
Our team was instrumental from initial concept and the lead on the ground with key production support throughout, this was one for the ages!

"Kinderblock 66"...a story about survival

Our film Kinderblock 66 is making great progress, with several recent film festival showings. Earlier in April during Liberation days the documentary was shown to a select audience of survivors in Buchenwald, Germany below to play clip of German TV:
...and then invited to the Jerusalem Film Festival with all the producers and survivors attending. In the US, Kinderblock 66 has been shown on smaller festivals and just won 'Best Documentary' in Key West and in Philadelphia for Best Director 'Documentary'. A distribution agreement is secured, bringing the film officially to America. For current updates go to Kinderblock 66

Thank you for your interest!

Lanxess Days for Investors & Press

For PR firm Offspin we produced media & investor days for Lanxess Chemical Coproration. Location management, calling the show, scenery/equipment/crew/photography and client transfers, where just some of our mandates. Watch a slide show of the events at the Bohemian National Hall:  
Little side story: When the incoming charter flight for the media on show day was rerouted surprisingly because of a sudden Presidential visit, no small scramble ensued! But we managed...all Limos quickly transferred from JFK to LGA and with a very happy CEO who promised to come back to New York one day!

SIEMENS Exider, A road show on rails

...the first exhibition to ever travel the a singular TRAIN.
A show for clients of Siemens E&A it came from Europe & China before North America via air, yes it was flown to Milwaukee then showed in Chicago first. 14 containers on flat-bed rail cars formed the self-powered trade show, with displays & product simulations, a 3D-movie theater and cafe lounge.
Stops in 16 cities around North America beginning in the Midwest to the East Coast and Mexico then Western US and Canada. We moved the train, built roads along the track, staged opening events with tents, snacks and greeters and managed this entire endeavor. Our German colleagues of OSK kept the train humming and 'in shape'. For sure not your everyday project!

Leica and Mercedes-Benz

...have both an important date in common: The world launch of the Leica M camera and Gullwing Mercedes 300 SL in 1954 in New York City. For the anniversary we produced a fashion and lifestyle photo shoot for a select group of journalists and armed them with Leica product. Just like any day we chased the light for that New York look & feel...with great success!

For Mr. McGraw's 1st signature fragrance launch at the Highline Ballroom he peformed live; and with a great voice and looks knocked the international beauty & lifestyle press off their feet, take a look:

We were the creative & production force on the ground and directed the show for our friends form Paris, event & PR agency 'shortcut'.
