We’ll Do it Live…SXSWi Style: Come Join Us for a Google+ Hangout Chat at 4EST

As we mentioned yesterday via Twitter, we’re doing a Google+ Hangout chat that’s essentially a post-game analysis of SXSWi. Instead of my usual chatter, we’ll pick the brains of the likes of Craig Elimeliah, VP, director of technology at RAPP, and creative technology director, Alexander Rea, who’s worked with the likes of Vitro and Anomaly, to get their thoughts from this year’s event. Watch as it unfolds below.

Rea Leaving Skinny–Sorry, Vitro–for Anomaly

The MDC-owned, New York-based operation formerly known as Skinny is losing its executive producer/technology director come 2012…well, somewhat. Alexander Rea is ending his full-time relationship at what’s now Vitro’s NYC base and will be spending most of his working days with sister MDC shop Anomaly as a senior technology producer next year. While at Skinny (still feels strange to call it Vitro), Rea led the technology front on new business and oversaw production on campaigns including the FWA-winning Lexus “Dark Ride” work. During his career, Rea has served in producing/consulting roles at the likes of Saatchi & Saatchi, W+K, Concept Farm and more.
