Phoenix's Nest is looking for creative people to make a photo-reportage Grammy-Awards-style for our Positive Attitude Award of the Year.
The Positive Attitude Award of the Year is an award attributed to Empire Avenue users by members of Phoenix's Nest, which aims to promote positive attitude as being contagious in social media. Attitude is a mindset. A positive attitude is the outward manifestation of a mind that focuses primarily on positive things. A positive attitude gives bring energy to a person and her entourage. Furthermore, a negative attitude saps energy. Members of Phoenix's Nest are asked to describe why they nominate a person. This collective exercise will ultimately list the different winning strategies of using social media, and will indicate why some users are more succesful, and what is their secret. Valuing and appreciating each other is also an important element of Phoenix's Nest mission.
This new project consists of digital art, computer-generated images, using nominees' faces and turning them into rock stars: photo-montages of nominees walking up the red carpet alley or anything Hollywood style; paparazzi taking pictures of nominee stars; nominees proudly holding their award, or waving hand; nominees coming out of a limousine; nominees posing on the walkway, etc. Group pictures, nominees interacting with each other, people kissing (*blushing*), nominees giving a speech, nominees dancing together, or nominees performing a song on stage, etc.
We also would need scenario designers and script writers. These contributors will help Phoenix's Nest create a fun outstanding and very original photo-montage.
Woouuu ooouuu! I wonder what kind of nice dress I will end up wearing to the Positive Attitude Award ceremony... and who will be my consort! So thrilling!
