I picked up a flyer for an interesting project that E4 are running in January.
“SKINS is a brand new drama from the makers of Shameless, launching on E4 in January.
We are looking for people to create a music track for a scene in the show, style the cast for a fashion shoot, design a version of the SKINS logo or make a film about the characters. There are some really great prizes to be had, including the chance to come and work at E4.”
Reminds me of Dubplate Drama, which was “the worlds first interactive TV drama.”
Here’s an interesting site that I came across, in association with Vodafone, called Receiver.
Its been going a fair old while (its up to issue 17) so its either too cool for school, or more likely they just haven’t a good job of promoting it.
“Vodafone’s receiver magazine is a neutral space where pioneer thinkers challenge you to discuss exciting, future-oriented aspects of communications technologies. Started as a platform for exchange about how innovations in this sector affect societies worldwide, receiver has become one of the industry’s key idea generators.”
The Ad Option (who brought American Apparel to Second Life) is to construct Second Life’s very own Times Square. Apart from being a great place to visit on a virtual holiday, Times Square in Second Life will sell ads to businesses that wish to advertise in the virtual realm but don’t want to bother building their own headquarters / attractions from scratch.
The Square is set to open on the 30th of December, in time for the ball to virtually drop for the New Year. The event will come full with ad spots from Lego, American Apparel, Intel, and others.

Okay okay, Playstation may have messed up with the fake blog, but remember we are halfway through the very interesting (and well thought out) Playstation Season.
I’m really pleased to see that Absolut are using lomography in they’re new campaign, with the Absolut LOMO photography competition. Lomography is a stunning photographic style that makes even the dullest or simplest subject look stunning, and the competition covers four categories – Absolut Bottle Shape, Artwork, Companion and Freestyle. A great example of user generated content, all of the entries will be on display online, with winners selected every four weeks. The overall winner will get a trip to the 2007 Lomography World Congress.
