Making an experiential splash for NBA/New York Knicks star Carmelo Anthony’s new Brand Jordan basketball shoe, the Melo M8, Wieden+Kennedy, New York, created the M8 NYC Flight Event, an epic nighttime show last week (10/20) on the Hudson River’s Pier 54. An audience of over 2,500–enjoying a live set from New York’s very own Nas–were surprised by an unannounced projection show of a three-story-tall Melo walking, dribbling and dunking on water.
The performance combined water holograms and 3D-mapping projections across multiple surfaces, including the side of a pier building and massive walls of mist on the river itself. This larger-than-life Melo interacted with his real surroundings, sending explosive shockwaves and sound effects splashing across the water as he made moves and ultimately dunked on the pier.

The Help

Tuesday, October 25th, 2011

The Help is the emotive story of black maids in the segregated world of Sixties Mississippi at the height of the civil rights struggle – their narratives recounted by a sympathetic, young white woman who rejects the virulent inbred racism of her old school friends.

There are clear autobiographical parallels with Stockett, 42, herself, a blonde Southern belle raised by a beloved African-American nanny in Jackson, the Mississippi state capital where the story is set. And her success is all the more remarkable, as the manuscript, five years in the writing, was rejected by some 60 literary agents (she stopped counting at 45).

The Disney film version is being marketed as an inspiring mixture of chick lit and civil rights, based on a heart-warming sorority between the races. And there is growing speculation about Oscar nods for Viola Davis (who plays the central character, Aibileen Clark), Octavia Spencer (her feisty friend, Minny) and newcomer Emma Stone (as white socialite Skeeter Phelan).
