SoCal Ad Firms Make Effie Awards History

It’s not just the massive box office for Fast & Furious 6 that reminds of our Brave New Multicultural World. Ahead of Justin Lin‘s gargantuan visceral pull, interTREND Communications made some similar history and is still celebrating post-holiday weekend.

The Long Beach ad firm’s AT&T Web series campaign Away We Happened, propagated in partnership with San Gabriel-based Rezonate Media, was the winner of the first-ever Asian Community award. The Effie has been handed out since 1968 and interTREND CEO Julia Huang was in New York City last week to accept the trophy.

Six-week YouTube series Away We Happened relied on Asian American influencers to spread the word and amassed more than 12 million total views. Along the way, audiences were asked to provide interTREND and Rezonate with direction on where to take the plot next.

Arnold Love Child Adds Sick Twist to Planned Terminator Sequels

It’s hard to know where to begin in terms of the potential fallout from the latest Schwarzenegger bombshell. Obviously, how the revelation of a secret ten-year-old love child impacts Maria Shriver and the couple’s four kids is the most pressing concern.

Way down the list but suddenly morbidly fascinating is how this might color Arnold’s return to the big screen. Just a few days ago, a woman – Megan Ellison – won a CAA auction in Cannes for rights to a pair of Terminator sequels starring the man several headlines this morning now refer to as “the Sperminator.” Her company, Annapura Pictures, reportedly beat out Lionsgate for the package, which also has Fast Five director Justin Lin attached.

Long before the first of these two films hits the big screen, you can bet that a YouTube time travel parody (or five) involving Arnold, Maria, the housekeeper, and love child will surface. Meanwhile, with folks in Hollywood used to tolerating loose morals, it’s unlikely this latest Schwarzenegger indiscretion will get in the way of visions of big dollar signs. If one or more of the current participants in the Terminator sequels bails, another will be there to take their place.
