During the month of October, ASMP participated in an experiment with Five Tier Media. Members had an opportunity purchase billboard space on three different Times Square billboards at discounted prices.
We did this to see whether members found this opportunity of value, and because we felt strongly that members’ contributions to storytelling cannot be overstated. Here’s an example of the video that was taken when our members gathered on October 26th (following the ASMP Annual Meeting) to see the big reveal. All participating members got their own version of a video like the one below showing the billboard’s first play.
It was a magical night and we loved sharing it with ASMP members in NYC. If participating members have comments about the evening, please leave them below and we’ll share with everyone.
The next billboard event will take place on Friday Nov 2nd. We look forward to seeing participating members there! You can find details about, and sign up for, our next informal “road block” gathering starting at 5:45PM at the corner of 42nd Street and 7th Avenue to watch your work come to life in Times Square!
