If you stepped out to the kitchen for a beer during last night’s Browns-Packers game you might have missed it, but Adcom did a 10-second spot for the National Senior Games, which will be held in Cleveland next year. Take a look.
We’ve been busy! Check out a few examples of our latest work: Continue reading A Sampling of Our Latest Work

On February 11th, Uppercut Team Member and Local Photograher, Timothy Logan was on site at Aperture Photography and Variety Store in Tremont to shoot 100 polaroid portraits of everyday Cleveland people. Timothy shot the first 100 people that came through the door for their very own instant portrait on an original Polaroid SX-70 using the second edition of Impossible Color Shade Instant Film. The photos were paired up with personalized handwritten notes featuring the individual’s name, creative inspiration and other fun comments. Continue reading 1Hundred Impossible Portraits Project
When we launched Uppercut.tv in the Spring of 2010 we knew we’d have the opportunity work on some cool client projects; like this one for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland, Ohio. Uppercut was hired to produce a video series that focused on the museums most coveted collections. The result was a series of videos that not only provide insight into the passion of the artists but also a glimpse into the story behind some of the most favorite pieces in the artists musical collection. The below video shares a story about John Lennon’s acoustic guitar. Enjoy, and if you’d like to learn more about our video production capabilities, feel free to visit us and get in touch.
One of my co-workers was talking with me about Qik the other day. Qik lets users to broadcast video from their mobile phone!
That means if you have video capabilities on your phone, you can be a roving video channel. It means that those video clips that take time to get to YouTube have just become outdated. (in a sense).
It started me thinking about the concept in general, so I did some searching around to find out if there are any other companies doing the same thing. There were.
In all fairness, I haven’t tried any of these products, but I was very excited by the idea that I had a couple of options to explore. Of course, I don’t like being in front of the camera, but I love wielding a camera.
Has anyone out there used this technology?
So with Twitter imposing its 140 character limit and still having the “fail whale” appear with their amount of traffic, I wonder if the new 12second.tv has a cute “service unavailable” character when they come out of the usual invite-only beta.
12second.tv is a new service that has, you guessed it, a 12 second limit on videos you can upload.
As a new web company they’re doing all the right things:
- They are on Twitter, Facebook, MySpace etc.
- Have set up client feedback on both Get Satisfaction and UserVoice
- Have a blog
- Enabled uploading from a mobile device
Will it replace Twitter and it’s ilk? No, I don’t think so. What it does is open another communication channel for businesses to reach the “instant response crowd”, tighten their communication loop and giving that crowd another service to aggregate and create more micromedia content.
Web Troika marches forward – Good luck 12seconds.tv
So you’ve been able to add annotations to video timelines for a little while now, but trust YouTube (well, Google I suppose) to one up that.
Not only can your annotations display right on the screen but you can make them interactive, as this card trick video illustrates.
The instructional videos that cover creating annotations highlights this connectivity well. This is perfect for those “how to” videos that companies are putting up (your company is doing that, right?) as well highlighting and linking products within different videos together.
Now currently you can only annotate the videos you upload, but that’s not to say it couldn’t have negative impact if you are not actively involved with your online brand management. Annotations do not show up on embedded videos (yet) and I have found no specifics to say that search engines can/would read the text and links but that should not stop you trying this cool feature out.
Happy CSS Naked Day!
It kinda crept up on me this year, hence not doing it on my blog or freelance web design site, though it still brings traffic to DMWebsites from last year. Not sure if it’s just the word naked though
Other news today, Flickr has now started showing videos people have been uploading. I like the way you can play the thumbnails and how they have kept the whole Flickr esthetic rather than going all YouTube. Flock will have to do some catching up as their bar doesn’t recognise the videos yet.
Finally two twitter realted items:
- TwitterJammers is all about those people that tweet too much. All the usual names are there – no danger of mine appearing anytime soon.
- TweetClouds is a site that makes a tag cloud from your tweets. #sxsw was obviously something I went mad over – hence the @warrenellis fatwah.
