I first caught wind of this event from Steve Lackmeyer’s blog, then proceeded to contact Gentry McKeown about access to cover the event. A wonderful night to attend an outdoor event – it had been freezing with ice and other horrors just two days prior. Downtown OKC posted on its Twitter account that over $10,000 was raised, proceeds go towards Emerson Alternative School. Pretty encouraging to see events like this downtown and the response from citizens to attend and contribute.
Met up with Casey Cornett at Joey’s Pizza in the Film Row district Wednesday night. Casey arranged the above interview with his boss, Brenda Jones of Jones PR Inc, and Jane Jenkins from Downtown OKC Inc.
Casey had spent much of Wednesday helping post bubbles across the downtown area. Brenda and Jane spoke about the campaign and the awareness it aims to achieve. Cool idea. Clean design.
Brenda has always been great to work with, and is great to interview. I don’t believe I had met Jane before, but she is also great on camera.
And then there’s the pizza. When Joey’s was on Classen just south of Cafe Antigua, it always ranked on my to-do list of places to grab a bite. But I never did.
Wednesday night, then, provided the perfect stage for a couple slices of pepperoni. Outstanding. Will definitely be back.
Steve Lackmeyer brought me the info, guided me through our archives for the appropriate photos and helped produce the above video. Should be helpful this week during the Festival of the Arts. There is a ton of construction downtown, it’s really not easy to navigate.
Ran downtown Monday evening to deliver a DVD to Good Egg Dining Group. We produce some of their multimedia campaigns. Saw the below skyline view from the AGE office on 5th Street. Snapped the pic via iPhone. Then drove down to Kerr to shoot the above video.
Also saw downtown business stringing up Christmas lights. It’s that time of year.
