Nowadays, children spend much more time in front of the television set and less time playing than they did decades ago. This info trailer is about a campaign LEGO led to encourage children to view less television and play more, while still using the media as a promotional means. With the support of the Nickelodeon.de channel, LEGO accomplished its goal. Nickelodeon television went off the air for six hours on May 28, 2010, and told children to go play. Up to that point, the manufacturer had advertised legally on the channel, giving parents and children the chance to buy their products. The outcome of the campaign exceeded expectations, since parents and children did play, sales for LEGO increased exponentially, and Nickelodeon’s acceptance as a TV channel for children grew among parents. The title of the music used for this trailer is most appropriately called “Got better things to do”, and it is by Frank Herrlinger. You may find it in the Proud Music Library.

The objective: to build a “toothbrush-bot” or a robot made of toothbrushes. This wacky activity took place at the event Ignite Nuremberg at the Zentrifuge Art Gallery in Nuremberg, Germany, in February 2011, where ten teams of members that did not know each other previously had to execute said task in 45 minutes. There were awards for the prettiest, the fastest, and the funniest. Although, not everybody was a winner, everyone had fun, and the activity set the stage for the remaining acts of the conference. The contest was captured on camera by Martin Goldmann (RedGo.Tv) in his vimeo “Battle of the Bristle Bots”, and it is accompanied by music from Frank Herrlinger, available at the Proud Music Library.
Music produced by Proud Music’s own Frank Herrlinger provides the background of this documentary on Evi Sachenbacher-Strehle. The name of the piece is “Route 1210.” Evi is a member of the German national Cross-country skiing team and is presently training for the World Cup in Oslo 2011 with Peter Schlickenrieder, himself a former Olympian.

GM Productions licensed the royalty free track “Ways Var. 1” for the trailer “Chaz Sands Invitational 2010 Highlights” from the Proud Music Library (Producer/Composer: Alexander Talmon). This track builds up a contineous tention, dressed in a orchestral robe, highlighted with pulsating electronic sequences. In alignment to this,the cutter of this film chose his scenic structure. Particularly the electronic accentuations of the track are skillfully reflected in the film. This trailer shows how music could be a perfect help to cut a film intuitively.
