What would you do with one million Twitter followers?

A team of ad creatives from the Martin Agency decided to find out. In an experiment to test the value of social media, Neel Williams and some of his co-workers created Twitterich, a site that aims to collect a million Twitter followers and give one random winner the account with all of the followers.

Twitterich asks viewers to first follow the account and then share the link with as many friends and contacts as possible. Once the site reaches one million followers, the account will then be handed over to one lucky follower. “It could end up going to somebody who just wants to tweet about what they want for breakfast or knock-knock jokes,” says Williams.

The 48 Hour Film Project is a wild and sleepless weekend.

This is where you and a team write, cast, direct, shoot, edit and score a short film — in just 48 hours! This year, Richmond was one of more than 125 cities invited to participate.

On Friday, July 13th, each participating team randomly selected a movie genre. From there, the organizers announced that the films created must include the following mandatory items: a flashlight, a door-to-door salesman named either Adam or Alana Nicholson and the line of dialogue, “Why am I always first?” In addition to fatigue, teams were forced to work around inclement weather and the imminent threat of a power outage. All in all, Richmond had 43 teams sign up, 34 films turned in by the July 15th deadline and 42 films shown at the premier screening.

The event, sponsored by TruTV, Yelp, The Virginia Film Office, The Virginia Production Alliance, The Byrd Theatre and The Camel, attracted many talented professionals from our advertising community. Samantha Tucker, the Richmond Producer of the 48 Hour Film Project, works full time as a Producer at the Martin Agency. Mark Meyers, an Assistant Editor at Running with Scissors, also pitched in time to help edit the main reel for each of the film screenings. Of the teams that participated, creative professionals from Big River, Dreams Factory and the marketing team at Channel 12, among others, submitted films. In fact, Final.Revised, Channel 12’s team, had the pleasure of showing their film at Cannes in last year’s competition.

The Best of Richmond screening takes place on August 4th at The Byrd Theatre. Tickets are $10 (cash only) at the door. If you’d like to learn more about the 48 Hour Film Project, visit 48hourfilm.com.
