• Budweiser's Julia Mize is One of @AdAge's Women to Watch 2014

    / Comments (0)

    Budweiser's VP of Experiential Marketing, Julia Mize, is the only St. Louis marketing professional to make the list of Ad Age's Women to Watch 2014.

    Ms. Mize, a longtime A-B employee who took on the experiential role in late 2012, has made it a priority to more closely link the iconic horses to the Budweiser brand. That includes running a sweepstakes when the Clydesdales visit a local market in which the horses deliver beer to the winner's house. Some of the Clydesdales recently went to China, where the brewer used them to celebrate Chinese New Year's celebrations commemorating the year of the horse.

    She also manages other consumer-outreach programs, including branded clothing apparel, brewery tours, and venues such as the new 26,000 square-foot "Budweiser Brew House" near Busch Stadium in St. Louis. Ms. Mize also founded a networking and support group for women in the beer industry.

  • Beer From Here: A Visual Map of St. Louis Beer - @KendeoLLC

    / Comments (2)

    Kendeo is a local firm that takes large amounts of data and translates them into visual maps, illustrations and games. Unfortunately they don't always get to share the majority of their work for public consumption, so they've decided to tackle quarterly passion projects to show the rest of us what it is they do exactly.

    First project: map out the majority of St. Louis breweries on a tidy, amber-hued map that also educates about glass design, brewing process and the local beer timeline of our city.

    Check out their blog for more background on the project and initial sketches. We hope to see more detailed, visual projects like this from them in the near future.

  • "Dumb in the Sun" Music Video by @Anthony_Gaddis

    / Comments (1)

    We've take a bit of a detour here with our typical Local Music Video spotlight to show the work of a local director with californian band Run Things in their new music video for "Dumb in the Sun".

    Here's the director on the making of the video:
    "Over a series of late-night talks with band-member (and creative director) Gregory Shadwick, we outlined the concept: There would be a car; a quintessentially Californian setting (to start off), a body to transport the girl through the dream, glass, reflections, and smoke & mirrors. We made a treatment that was green-lit by their label, White Iris, and production began."

    After a few days driving around L.A. capturing palm-lined boulevards, sun & surf, I returned home to St. Louis for principal production. We first secured the gifted NY photographer Andrew Cutraro as D.P., and (after watching many a Rainer Fassbinder film) I found model Carolyn Roseberry, who was the exact vision of what we wanted. Motionless but deeply expressive. Empathetic and cold at the same time.

    "We shot it indoors over three days at Cummings Studio in downtown St. Louis.
    StL native Jonathan Lutjens did the compositing and 3-D effects. We found that multiple exposures gave us a surreal look that made the dream tactile— and the bird’s-eye 3-D scenes became the most surprising contribution."

    "Finally, Lewis Pesacov (Best Coast, Fidlar, Fool's Gold), L.A. based producer/composer signed on to do sound-design for the epilogue and prologue.
    He brilliantly repurposed elements from the track to create the foreboding sonic mood of the intro, and quasi-planetarium muzak of the outré."

    Visit his tumblr page for some lovely behind the scenes shots and process of the captivating and otherworldly video.

  • Donut Doubles: @BrutonStroube x @StrangeDonuts for Marlin Network

    / Comments (3)

    In typical Bruton style, we saw this project on Sploid/Gizmodo before we saw it anywhere local and we guessed they just don't need the local Egotist gazette to get the public's awareness anymore *sniff*… But we hit them up anyways and they were able to offer some insight and sketches - which we always love seeing - for the Donut Doubles photography & video that is currently sweeping the inter webs.

    Photographer Brandon Voges had this to share about the project:
    "It’s that time of year again where we get to work with one of our favorite agencies, The Marlin Network, to put together a fun teaser/invite for a breakfast event they put on every year"


    "It was a fun project brought to us by a fun client and got to work with Strange Donuts, which is always a bonus. Strange was down to help out with some product and consulted on some of the donut details. We’re actually doing large prints of all these with their logo in the middle for them to use in store, which will be cool to see."


    "Marlin came to us with the concept, and we kicked around some ideas with them. The funniest part was trying to cast for the fritter. We found Tina and had to tell her what we were planning on doing, and she said, 'Oh hell, alright'. She was a riot and did a great job. That one was definitely my favorite."

    "We shot in studio and just tried to take time to come up with little details between the two that made them connect. Some sketches with the casting shots are below where you can see how some of the concepts changed as we started shooting."
