SHOOT Publicity Wire Taps Into Most Viewed Motion Picture Industry News Releases Posted in 2016
The most read stories on the SHOOT Publicity Wire (SPW) in 2016.
Coverage Ranges From Ambitious Projects To The Unveiling of Awards Shows Nominations
  • HOLLYWOOD & Westport, CT
  • --

The most read stories on the SHOOT Publicity Wire (SPW) in 2016 range from news about unique projects promoting TEDx Conferences to the development of a “Spirit of Meditation” VR app for Samsung Gear, and comprehensive round-ups of major awards show nominations spanning such competitions as the ACE Eddie Awards, the Producers Guild Awards for TV and features, and the Art Directors Guild's Excellence in Production Design Awards.

Topping the SPW rundown this year was a story about organizers of two TEDx Conferences hiring students within Cogswell College’s innovative MediaWorks program to develop and produce original, short animated audiovisual communication projects promoting those two events--one in Vail, Colo., the other in San Francisco.
 
Finishing second in number of views was the unveiling of nominations for the 66th Annual ACE Eddie Awards recognizing best editing of the year in features, TV and documentaries.
 
Earning third place in the SPW views tally was the announcement of TV series and specials nominees for the 2016 Producers Guild Awards.
 
Next up was news of Producers Guild Award nominations for outstanding achievements in theatrical motion pictures, animated features and long-form television.
 
Finishing fifth was coverage of "Night Projections," a spec piece directed, produced and conceptualized by Adriano Falconi (repped in the U.S. as a director by CONTAGIOUSLA). The film shows us a Tesla Model S moving through downtown L.A. in the middle of the night. Its headlights are akin to an aura of life. As the car passes buildings and lampposts, glimpses of nature arise in the forms of trees and foliage, turning the city into a wondrous forest. The joy ride goes back and forth between the urban and nature’s wild until we realize that the car has indeed been motoring through the city while demonstrating its transformative green power.
 
The sixth place entry takes us back to the nominations derby, this time for the 2016 U.S. International Film & Video Festival.
 
Landing in the seventh slot was a look at the Rachele royale music video "Different Now." Upon listening to the dark, sultry and tempestuous "Different Now" track that is cinematic in its tone, director TJ Scott saw the clip as a creative fit for the Leica cameras' video capabilities. "Different Now" broke new ground for Leica, a unique advancement fo rthe company that is traditionally known for its lightweight and high quality photographic equipment, more traditionally used for street photography. In February 2015, Leica's design team was awarded an Academy Scientific and Engineering Award for the optical and mechanical design of the Leica Summilux-C lenses which are used for cinematic purposes.
 
Coming in eighth was the announcement of nominees for the Art Directors Guild's 20th Annual Excellence in Production Design Awards. 
 
Ninth place went to The Artery’s creation of the VR experience “Spirits of Meditation” which allows the user to dive deeper into his/her meditation experience with a 360-degree stereoscopic point of view. The app allows viewers to meditate in a calming yoga room or on a dock with soothing waters below. This innovative experience provides deep, quiet time meditation, within a casual simulation experience.
 
And rounding out the SPW Top Ten was the announcement of the directorial lineup selected for SHOOT's 14th Annual New Directors Showcase.
 
Here's a rundown of the year's 35 most viewed news releases on the SHOOT Publicity Wire:
