Last sunday marked 1 year exactly that I’ve been in France, and it’s also been more than 2 years that I’ve been with Synthesio monitoring social media.
Working with Synthesio meant my 1st job as community manager, and the first time I truly experienced the “online world” and what it means for businesses and individuals. I spent much of my early time learning everything I could about the web, its workings, and the people there, before starting my own blog and becoming the Observing Participant.
How many pics does it take to get to the center of a stopmotion video? For the latest Adidas Originals collection – 7500 …give or take a few.
I have to admit it was a little – ok really – weird to be invited to participate as a blogger, but really cool to see how they put this whole thing together.
The breakdown :
Adidas’s (kickablog kickass) community manager Brice got together some bloggers, models, artists, breakdancers, rope-skippers, and the like to put on multiple pairs of the new collection to come out with this video highlighted by Beat Assailant‘s What did you do.
Thanks to Guillaume for putting the video on DailyMotion. I was actually surprised to find out that the original version couldn’t really be shared..
The end result?
Something that made me think of Rob Walker’s murketing (i.e. spreading word-of-mouth via people that already love the brand)..but a little more slap-you-in-the-face – Literally.
Could you call it guerrilla marketing? (Only produced for online, and if you go to the Adidas site to watch it you can zoom in on specific shoes)
Video-wise, I definitely have to appreciate the time and effort that went into this. For each 20-30 second clip it took an entire afternoon of shooting, plus all of the backend post editing. On Apple though stopmotion can be fairly easy if you get the iStopMotion video editor specifically for that. And I have to admit that the shoe-changing effect is pretty cool
..so I’m going to have to try this stopmotion game
Have you? What problems did you have? What did you like best about it?
One of my favorite things recently that lets you add subtitles that can be translated into different languages automatically by Google Translate. It’s not perfect, but it’s great for now, because ..we don’t all speak English..
FYI You might have to go to YouTube to see the sub-titles until they’re loaded up :p
It’s been almost a year and a half now that I’ve been working online, and I have to say, sometimes I just get tired.
I don’t know what it is, if it’s the constant strain on your eyes to focus on a computer screen, or the fact that it’s so easy NOT to disconnect in the evening that has become troublesome.
Don’t get me wrong – I love being here and talking with everyone and having this as my workspace and playspace. It’s just that for some reason it’s hard to turn off the computer and actually turn it off in my head.
I’ve thought perhaps it’s also because this is my first “real” job that I’ve been having trouble shutting my brain down at night. I leave work physically, but I’m still thinking about things I can do, people I’d like to contact.
And here’s the crazy part – I live in the land of the 35-hour work week!
You’d think I’d be able to give myself some slack and relax..
And I know I do sometimes. Maybe it’s still the perfectionist thing catching up with my butt again. Yeah, no, actually it probably is.

Osmanyness (a French blogger I just met this week that is going to have to copyright the suffix “-ness” soon — his birthday hashtag was “oh my birthdayness” ) – is holding a contest for his blog where you can win his white iPhone…
Now, I know I’ve been holding out for opening a bank account here in Paris and getting the iPhone 4, but I hear rumors circulating of a 4G…and could REALLY see me breaking in an iPhone 3G (that’s FREE) in the meantime…
