It’s been amazing pulling this together with so many talented artists all over the world. On February 27th, 2021, Post Malone played Pokemon’s P25 music festival. Check it out

END OF THE YEAR | DECEMBER 2020

Well, 2020 has been a year like nothing else. It completely transformed the way most of us work and how we interact with each other. This year allowed me to get back to a lot of the type of work that makes me happiest – innovative storytelling. So it was fitting that, 9 years later, we created a sequel to Take This Lollipop. Simply titled LOLLIPOP, the project has been seen by more than 100 million people across TikTok, YouTube, and takethislollipop.com. I am incredibly humbled and excited to start 2021 with some big news. Stay safe and wear a mask!

BIG CHANGES AHEAD | APRIL 2020

Incredibly big changes are happening. The world is in the midst of dealing with a global pandemic. Business has grinded to a halt. It’s certainly a time of uncertainty. Somehow, I am feeling more creatively alive than I ever have. I was inspired to write an article called, ‘The Age of Virtual Production‘. With physical production most likely halted to at least June or July, it’s time to roll up our sleeves and get creative. Hope you are all well. Be safe. Stay indoors. ✌️

It’s been a fun year so far, and lots of new stuff to announce before the year is over. So a few updates… It’s been one year since Project Dead Zone, and it just won Best in Show at the Media Post Awards. Just wrapped a few projects that should be launching soon.

Award season is off to a start and I found out that the project for Santander “In Someone Else’s Shoes” won a Webby. I believe this make the 8th or 9th Webby I have won. The project also won a Shorty Award for Best Social Good Campaign. Project Dead Zone recieved two merits from the One Show and two Gold at the SF Addy Awards. Hopefully we get a few more pieces of hardware over the next few months.

CHOOSE-YOUR-OWN-ADVENTURE FILM | FEBRUARY 2019

When Bandersnatch debuted over the holiday break, I was so excited that interactive, choose-your-own-adventure filmmaking was finally coming to the masses. I had to write about my experience as well as other exciting things going in this space, so I wrote a Medium article called Choose-Your-Own-Bandersnatch.

LIVE STREAMING HORROR FILM | OCTOBER 2018

On October 16, we broadcast a live paranormal investigation at the Winchester House. Through the help of the audience, a small team of amateur paranormal investigators explored the most haunted house in America. Unfortunately, the entire project was jeopardized when things began to go drastically wrong.

SUMMER WITH YUENGLING | JULY 2018

It has been a busy start to the year. I was in South Africa for January, Florida for March and London for May. Some exciting projects coming soon and a brand campaign relaunch for Yuengling (America’s Oldest Brewery) just debuted. It features a few thirty-second TV spots, social media content, print and more.

PROJECTION MAPPING

I also directed a really cool TVC for the Mega Red Pill. We used 5 Ultra-HD projectors to create an all in-camera dance and projection mapping spot. A lot of behind the scenes work went into creating this one. Original music by Future Perfect, choreography by Simeon Qsyea, projection by Projection Artworks and animations by Found Studio.
