Ad Legends Re-Imagine Iconic TV Messages For Digital Web – Google’s ad Project Re:Brief

Google is championing a project that asks a very interesting thought-provoking question about classic advertising and answers it with an enlightening and charming series. The project is called, “Project Re: Brief” and asks how the originators of some the greatest, most memorable iconic advertising in history might “Re-imagine” the same idea after forty years and apply it to today’s audiences using today’s digital marketing tools.

Directed by Doug Pray, and the same team who joined him to make the Emmy-Award-winning film and PBS hit “Art & Copy,” Project Re: Brief is a film that aims to shake up the ad industry and inspire new ways of thinking. While shifting formats and media platforms is one thing, as we learn from our heroes of the past, the basic tenets of human storytelling haven’t changed.

Meet Mark Goffeney.If you love music and life, you’ll love this man

Born in San Diego, Goffeney was raised in a musical family. By age nine he was attempting to create his own music despite his handicap, but choosing an instrument proved to be a challenge. For a while he played trombone in the school band, and then his father brought home an old guitar he had found at a garbage dump.

With his friend’s help, Goffeney developed his own technique, learning guitar and bass. He would lay the guitar on the ground, supporting the neck with whatever he could get his feet on. He would strum with his left foot and make chords with his right.

Years later, Mark Goffeney has released an album and is also the singer/Guitarist for The Big toe band.

Watch a 12-Year-Old Kid, Ryan Suarez recently gave a TED talk about his work developing apps for the iPhone.

Thomas Suarez is a 6th grade student at a middle school in the South Bay of Los Angeles. When Apple released the Software Development Kit (SDK), he began to create and sell his own applications. “My parents, my friends and even the people at the Apple store all supported me,” he says, “and Steve Jobs inspired me”. Thomas points out that it’s hard to learn how to make an app. “For soccer you could go to a soccer team … but what if you want to make an app?” He’s started a club for fellow students at school, where he shares his knowledge of programming. Thomas articulates his vision that students are a valuable new technology resource to teachers, and should be empowered to offer assistance in developing the technology curriculum and also assist in delivering the lessons.
