(Thunder Bay, Ontario, Canada)Full Story on PRWeb 2/12/13

RennerVFX was recently honored with a Platinum Pixie Award by the American Pixel Academy for their Hollywood-style cinematic teaser trailer for the novel and planned movie of The Pineville Heist.

Currently in the financing stages for big screen treatment with Twilight Saga star Booboo Stewart, The Pineville Heist thriller is also a bestselling eBook, audiobook and paperback.

Writer and Director Lee Chambers and screenwriter Todd Gordon teamed up with RennerVFX to produce a 30 second spot that is 95% computer generated. This in addition to M3 Client Pamala Kennedy Chestnut ‘More Than Rice’ Movie Deal.

This creative collaboration took a staggering two and half months and has now won the team the Best Use of Visual Effects. The American Pixel Academy honors outstanding creativity in motion graphics, effects and animation.

Chambers explains the reason for the length of time for development. “The realism of each shot is near perfect and there are over 300 standalone pieces in this trailer with each one having to be meticulously built up, layer upon layer.”

To further explain the process of the computer generation involved in producing the trailer, VFX guru George Renner explains, “We looked at numerous real school hallways before crafting up our virtual environment using 3D Studio Max, Syntheyes and Fusion to create over a thousand frames. Even after six weeks of building the framework, rendering alone took over three weeks and multiple computers to complete the final version. The rendering process happens one frame at a time, sometimes taking over 2 hours to render each one out.”

Chambers commissioned Fabio Acri, an award-winning musician to compose music specifically for the trailer from his studios in London, England, while Dan Gold in Los Angeles provided the flawless voiceover. The only ‘real’ element in the spot was Canadian actor Tanner Drabick who appears in the virtual world as the on-screen bad guy.

Chambers advises, “Animating an actor as well would have doubled the time it took to produce the trailer. Cinematographer Kevin Fratpietro shot that particular scene using a Red Camera, and then Renner VFX seamlessly incorporated this single live-action element into the trailer.” Book and movie teaser trailer:

Lee Chambers is a British Canadian writer, director and producer who has received critical acclaim from Total Film Magazine and Fox Television. In 2005 Chambers developed the Make It Short Film Project gaining Executive Producer support from Academy Award winners, Paul Haggis, Denys Arcand and Roger Corman. In 2012, Chambers won Screenwriter of the Year Award by Music Film and Motion in Canada for his short film, ‘Hugh Jackman Saves the World’.

Social Media Brings Dollars to Oklahoma Kelsie Berg, OU Student Wins Dr Pepper Tuition Challenge & $100K Scholarship Featured At BCS Halftime Show Parents How to Fund College Education!  OU Sooner Kelsie Berg Wins Dr. Pepper Tuition Challenge & $100,000 at BCS Game

M3 New New is pleased to announce that Kelsie Berg, Miss Broken Arrow, is the Official Winner of the Dr. Pepper Tuition Challenge and will be featured during the Halftime show at the BCS Orange Bowl Game on Monday in Florida between Alabama and Notre Dame.

Kelsie’s decision to stay and study in Oklahoma has positive impact on state’s economy as she prepares for Miss Oklahoma and sees her platform go viral says Michael D. Butler.

Paying for college can be a daunting task for parents in the midst of fiscal cliff’s, recession and economic crisis. Many parents and teens are turning to the Internet and for good reason – more and more Global and National Brands are promoting Online Social Media Contests to do Scholarship Giveaways.

Kelsie Berg has been declared the official winner of the Dr. Pepper Tuition Challenge and the winner of the $100,000 scholarship fund. Kelsie is a 2012 grad of Broken Arrow and was recently crowned Miss Broken Arrow, is attending the University of Oklahoma. She is getting her undergrad in Mass Communications and her post graduate work will be in Law.

Kelsie will be featured during the BCS halftime show when the Notre Dame Fighting Irish and the Alabama Crimson Tide square off Monday night in Miami Gardens Florida.

“When you think about it – it just makes sense, says Michael D. Butler, CMO at M3 New Media. National Brands like Dr. Pepper need a younger crowd with established friendship networks to bring viewers and eyeballs back to Network Television. We recently helped our clients reconnect with niched demographics in opening for the Beach Boys, get movie deals, fund free agents in the NFL between gigs and professional boxers during training between title bouts.

“I saw the Dr. Pepper Challenge Online and decided to go for it…and I’m glad I did!” Kelsie

You could say Kelsie and her Social Media story is already positively affecting the University of Oklahoma, local Tulsa and Broken Arrow businesses as she decides to spend her new tuition dollars in Oklahoma. Sunsations Tulsa has agreed to let Kelsie tan for Free and many Oklahomans eyes will be on Kelsie as she competes for Miss Oklahoma in June. Michael D. Butler says, “There are a ton of local Oklahoma individuals and business owners to thank for supporting Kelsie and getting her to Florida for the final competition. Including Sunsations Tulsa, Tyler Jones Radio Group, Broken Arrow Merchants and M3 New Media clients and Fans.

Does Your Twitter Marketing Plan Focus on Listening-Keywords & Search?

When it comes to Growing Twitter-Tulsa is quickly Becoming a Smart Location for Social Media Keywords

Michael D. Butler, Sr. 5/16/11

Michael D Butler Sr on Twitter

I love watching new entrepreneurs, business people and companies jump on Twitter. Twitter is one of my favorite ways to listen for keywords on the internet. The overall marketing strategy of any company is unique but covers some of the same basic components. An online strategy that includes publishing short-form content to the web on a channel like Twitter is not an option for the serious business who wants others talking and driving traffic. We want to point out a few case studies to show how quickly a business owner can gain targeted followers on Twitter and by using keywords can find potential alliance and joint venture partners. Follow MichaelButlerSr on Twitter for up to the minute communication with me. Just 5 weeks ago we began working with @Coach_JC an author and speaker and  local trainer and owner of @BootCampTulsa & @DSDStrength in just 5 weeks on our basic Twitter package Coach JC says, “You guys rock, you have exploded our Twitter account.” We say thanks Coach. With just an average of 3 tweets per day Coach JC shows us you don’t have to be noisy to be effective.

Coach JC of Tulsa-Twitter Success Quality Connections

Coach JC will surpass 2,000 followers this week. But keep in mind it’s not about the quantity of followers it is about the quality of followers.

The primary rule on Twitter is ENGAGEMENT

Coach does a good job engaging people. With our software we have been able to use keywords like: Exercise, workout, run, marathon, Olympic Trials, Qualify, NBA, NCAA, NFL, Bench Press, Triathlon, Lose Weight, Swim Suit, Metabolism, etc. to help him connect with potential clients.  When we began working with Coach on his Twitter accounts just 5 weeks ago he had no followers @DSDStrength Stay tuned tomorrow we will show you what other keywords Coach has used to connect with health conscious people in Tulsa.

We engage people by LISTENING to KEYWORDS & asking questions not just by preaching 24/7

Coach JC hires M3 New Media for Twitter Marketing 4/7/11

You can see Coach JC had been stuck at 350 followers since January. We were able to do something for him in 5 weeks that he had not been able to do in months.

M3 Client Featured Change.Org -Technology Averts Human Trafficking

Child Safety, Inc. Gets National Media Coverage Again-Technology to Advert Human Trafficking

Michael D. Butler, M3 New Media

Amidst a flurry of media coverage including Tulsa and National Media attention, Child Safety, Inc. again makes headlines for their work in child safety and technology for human trafficking prevention.

Technology Averts Human Trafficking-Stop Trafficking Supply Program

Child Safety Inc. Stop Trafficking Site-From their blog 1/25/2011
Imagine what it would be like if you, or your entire civic service group could help directly stop the flow of human and child trafficking victims to traffickers? The number of human and child trafficking victims in both your community, and country would drop significantly, right? Fortunately, you don’t have to use your imagination anymore-it’s a reality.
Child Safety Incorporated, in conjunction with Change.Org, Law enforcement, and numerous human and child trafficking organizations. These abolitionist advocacy groups will now be able to stop the flow of victims from their homes BEFORE they reach the traffickers. This program will also enhance the safety and security of the individuals and groups that choose to donate a Family Protection Program to a trafficking organization, or low-income family.
Republished from Change.org
Dana Liebelson
Last week, I challenged Change.org readers to combat trafficking by donating a Child Safety Incorporated (CSI) card to an anti-trafficking organization. Almost immediately, Sean Spellecy, the founder of CSI, decided to bring this action to life in a real, tangible way. With his support, Change.org members are concretely preventing kids from reaching traffickers — and you can join them.
The CSI cards include a USB that parents can use to compile useful information, such as a child’s friends, pictures, blood type and medication. In the event that a child goes missing, over 100,000 law enforcement officials will be notified within ten minutes.
Purchasing a card also signs the child up for the family protection program, which sponsors a $10,000 reward for a missing child’s return. This plan, if distributed to probation officers and social workers responsible for high-risk children and teens, could be instrumental to preventing these kids from reaching traffickers.
Starting this week, users who buy a card for a child in their life now have the option to donate a card online to a trafficking group within their state, or to an anonymous low-income family in their community. These families and organizations can sign up for the program with the click of a mouse — and several abolitionist groups already have. There is also a financial incentive for individual families to buy a second card for a family in need: CSI will offer the second card for 50% off, and a free CSI Travel Card (bringing the whole package to $150). On an even more impressive scale, if a large trafficking organization decides to host a “Family Protection Program Against Human Trafficking” drive, CSI members will fly to the group’s headquarters to assist with the campaign at their own expense.
“We believe this program could really have a big impact on the supply chain of potential trafficking victims,” Spellecy said in an interview.
He also stressed the fact that having just a few large trafficking organizations sign on to the program could make a concrete difference in preventing missing kids from falling intro trafficking. Police officers in Oklahoma experienced with missing children cases, told CSI that with their protection program, the chances that a runaway or missing child will be successfully returned increases to 80% (under the Amber Alert, the officers said, the rate is roughly 30-35%.) Additionally, CSI has long-term plans to use their funds to build 50-bed shelters in large cities, ultimately attacking trafficking from every angle.

Child Safety, Inc. was launched in July of 2010 in Tulsa, OK by Sean Spellecy. “As a school principaI I got tired of saying, ‘I’m sorry, I wish there was something more we could do.'”At CSI Our motto is: “Total Life Security”. We have a multi-phased protection program to enhance safety for families and organizations.

Tulsa to Observe Global Human Trafficking Awareness Day

In observance of Global Human Trafficking Awareness Day & Global Human Trafficking Awareness Week.

Tulsa Observes Global Human Trafficking Awareness Day

The Tulsa community is coming together to: be educated about human trafficking, to network and be motivated to end human trafficking everywhere. Did you know there are twice as many slaves today as there were in Abraham Lincoln’s time? The people of Tulsa want to change that statistic, starting with their own state.  -Thirty million people are trafficked for sex globally each year. -Three Million of those are children and 200,000 of those children are right here in the USA. This makes the United States the world’s #1 Sex tourism destination.
This will be a great opportunity to do some great networking with people and organizations that are making a difference. Mark Elam, Founder and CEO of OATH Coalition (Oklahomans Against Trafficking Humans) and named by the FBI as Oklahoman of the Year for his work in the fight to end human trafficking. Mark is actively working with victims, victim’s organizations and legislators to end trafficking in Oklahoma and beyond. Mark’s work has been influential in shaping how other states address their trafficking issues. http://OATHCoalition.org/
Jason Weis, Jason is the National Walk Director for Stop Child Trafficking Now based out of New York, NY Jason and his wife Kristin felt the call to end human trafficking in 2008 and came to Tulsa to attend Victory Bible Institute. Since then they have worked actively with SCT Now to go after the demand side of human trafficking. http://SCTNow.org/ Jason has been successful receiving media coverage and spreading awareness and mobilizing college students and young adults for the cause.

Nationally recognized author and former Mrs. California, Pamala Kennedy Chestnut in her fourth book and first novel takes the reader on a “Journey Through The Underworld of Human Trafficking” but doesn’t leave the reader hanging in turmoil-the call to action motivates the reader to do something now to make a difference in their world.
