"Perry Valkenburg, TBWA’s European President and COO International, explains how TBWA handles digital within its agencies around the world. Valkenburg points out that agencies have no choice other than to actually be, think and create digital, which requires an additional skill-set within the organization. He introduces the idea of Digital Arts and explains how these super-specialists work within TBWA, rather than as as a separate company."

"The city district Amsterdam Osdorp recently merged with Slotervaart and Geuzenveld-Slotermeer and was given the name Amsterdam Nieuw-West. This change also meant the end of 20 years of restructuring urbanized areas. To celebrate everything achieved, a book was published. ‘The Metamorphosis of Osdorp’ gives an overview of the architectural highlights. We were asked to create an intriguing video, featuring the buildings we find most characteristic.
Restructuring urbanized areas isn’t all about aesthetics. That is why we chose to put emphasis on the architects and especially it’s inhabitants and the surrounding of the buildings. To achieve this, we decided to combine live action video with 2D- and 3D-animation. Herewith we were able to complement reality with our interpretation of the most important factors of restructuring urbanized areas."

Liquid Mountaineering is a new sport which is attempting to achieve what man has tried to do for centuries: walk on water. Or to be more precise: running on water. We are developing the sport from scratch. By accident we found out that with the right water repellent equipment you can run across bodies of water, just like a stone skimming the surface. http://www.liquidmountaineering.blogs

So much 'media love' for Iron Man 2 movie!
As you can see this is only a video and tvc selection, I did not want to go through the movie merchandise because there is simply too many. I don't think that any movie had so many product placements and media about it. I suppose it's because of the digital media that enabled more communication levels in recent years.
