We’re delighted to be recognized for our innovative SnapTag technology, which has been used to advance creative storytelling, deliver content and interact with mobile fans.
Denver, CO (PRWEB) September 22, 2011
SpyderLynk, creator of the SnapTag™, a logo-centric, more accessible QR Code alternative, is proud to announce that it’s CEO and Founder, Nicole Skogg, has been chosen by The Producers Guild of America, in association with Variety, as one of its 2011 “Digital 25” Leaders in Emerging Entertainment.
The “Digital 25” program recognizes the 25 leading visionaries, innovators and producers who have made significant contributions to the advancement of storytelling through digital media. In addition, the program strives to acknowledge producers or creators that have enabled the production and/or distribution of digital entertainment in the areas of Internet (Broadband), Interactive Television, Visual & Digital Effects, Console & PC (Multi-User Online) Gaming, Home Entertainment, Mobile and Digital Animation.
Nicole was recognized for SpyderLynk’s innovative SnapTag technology and its use by the entertainment industry in several recent DVD launches of blockbuster films such as Warner Brothers “Inception” and Sony Pictures “This Is It”. During the Inception campaign, film buffs were able to “snap and send” a photo of the “Inception totem” SnapTag with their mobile phones to receive new content each week including never-before-seen videos, helping Warner Brothers to promote the DVD release. To launch the greatest Music Entertainment DVD of all time, Sony Pictures used SnapTags on advertising for the Michael Jackson “This Is It” DVD release, which delivered a sneak peek clip of the video to mobile fans, as well as an opportunity to purchase the video and become a Facebook Fan.
“It’s a great honor to be a part of such an esteemed group of forward-thinking colleagues who are using digital technology innovation to deliver engaging entertainment,” said Nicole Skogg. “We’re delighted to be recognized for our innovative SnapTag technology, which has been used to advance creative storytelling, deliver content and interact with mobile fans. Both Warner Brothers and Sony Pictures used our pioneering technology to promote important DVD releases, which allowed them to interact with fans to build excitement and momentum just before the releases.”
The Guild’s 4,500 members, including producers of film, television and new media, along with a distinguished Digital 25 Advisory Board, voted for this honor. Recipients will be honored at an exclusive reception on Monday, October 17th, as part of the Variety Entertainment & Technology Summit at the Digital Hollywood Conference, at the Ritz-Carlton Marina Del Ray.
