My work in print and interactive includes magazine ads, brochures, web copy, photo captions, email newsletters and SEO writing.
I'm especially proud of this ad because I not only wrote it, I conceived, pitched and designed it, too. THR was looking for in-house ads for their special Cannes edition, and we decided to devote a half-page to Roger Corman's upcoming 55 year anniversary. We sold a record number of ads as a result, as everyone from Ron Howard to Emmanuelle bought space to congratulate their mentor.
As the copywriter and traffic manager for The Hollywood Reporter's in-house marketing department, my primary responsibility was to write the "in-house" ads - advertisements that ran in THR's print edition to solicit ads from outside buyers. This was a typical ad for MIPTV.
When Warren Beatty received his Lifetime Achievement Award from AFI, we ran a solicit for congratulatory ads.
If you can make it there, you can make it anywhere. The fact that we called out the “Upcoming Sex and the City movie” will tell you how old this is!
