At the 40th annual daytime Emmy Awards we picked up our first Emmy in the category "New Approaches" for The Beauty Inside, a project we did with Toshiba & Intel and agency Pereira O'Dell. B-Reel's director Drake Doremus is the proud guy holding the trophy! We're super proud to win such a classic and traditional award for an integrated project.
In February 2013, B-Reel was invited to curate an evening of talks at Glug, an after-work creative drinks and Notworking event for designers, creatives, clients and friends. B-Reel brought together all the key creative partners who worked on Chrome Web Lab to speak at the event, titled “Collaboration Economy”.
B-Reel chaired the evening of talks, with B-Reel Products’ Creative Director, Riccardo Giraldi, flying the flag to speak on behalf of the B-Reel team. The B-Reelers were joined onstage by Google Creative Labs, Tellart, BarberOsgerby / MAP / UDS, and Bibliotheque.The evening was delivered into two halves. The topic for the first half allowed the speakers to talk about what collaboration means to them in their field of work. This gave the audience the chance to get to know the speakers and the expertise of the companies they represent. The Second half focussed on the Web Lab project and provided a deep dive into each partners core skills and gave a different viewpoint around the complexity, challenges and opportunities of working on Web Lab.
Last week we announced the opening of our Berlin office, a great addition to the B-Reel family. And a great occasion to throw a party! Going down on a cold but vibrant Valentine’s day in Berlin, it was a full day for local B-Reelers and those traveling in from other offices. We started with an appearance at Regielounge, the great German mingle/show for people in commercials production. To celebrate the day we showed a Valentine’s special – a film about love through the lens of B-Reel.
Then we went to Soho House for a screening of our “docu-blockbuster” Palme – and the main event – our party afterwards. Besides B-Reelers, we were joined by our local friends, collaborators and co-conspirators. We had fun! And we take the fact we ended up having döners kebaps by the break of dawn as a sign this was all a great success. Tschüss!
