So many TV marketing people have a deep yearning to do a film. Come on…you know you do. Some of you have moved forward on that desire through different venues, like the 48 Hour Film Festival. ERIK CANDIANI was involved in that a few times and it seems he had a blast. Well, one TV marketer has blown the doors off the desire and jumped in full blast. KYLE KLEINECKE is doing the southern film festival circuit with a short called The Pickle. Kyle did TV promo in Wichita Falls, TX as well as Shreveport, LA before getting onboard at an agency and then directing the film. You can read about it (and Like it) on Facebook. As Nike says – do it! Well Dunne! Kyle.

Got stellar news about CHAD MALLAM. Really stellar. Mr. Chad has launched the Space Channel LLC. We turn the pixels over to Mr. C: The first non-linear television network dedicated to Space with a unique programming line up that covers every aspect of the industry. From news to movies, web content, live event coverage and eventually a network of cameras streaming live, real time HD footage from interplanetary space. Giving viewers an unprecedented look at the cosmos and our home planet from any device, anywhere in the world. Chad knows a thing or two about getting eyeballs…he was most recently VP of On-Air at GSN. He honed his chops at such great operations as KPIX in San Fran, NBC Universal, WGCL in Atlanta and ABC Entertainment. At heart, he’s quite the artist who not only paints eye-popping canvases today, but has been an Animation Assistant at the Cartoon Network. Chad will help us all see more stars and open the universe’s marvels. Well Dunne! Mr Mallam. Regards to Boots.

Love the title…The Pickle Film or something equally tasty. Well Dunne! Kyle.

If you don’t know the work of STAN FREBERG, and are in the marketing/ad world, well, now is the perfect time to get with it and discover what a genius he was. The man was a writer, a voice, an ad man, a comedian…the list goes on…and was a puppeteer. His work is as fresh today as it was 50, 40, 30 years ago. He passed away earlier this week making the world a much more somber place .

Shreveport, LA is the new home for Tulsa-born KYLE KLEINECKE. He’s taking leave of Texas and moving one state east. No, he won’t be escaping the record-shattering heat that Texas is experiencing, but it’s an exciting adventure for him. His new title is Creative Services Director at FOX affiliate KMSS in Shreveport, Louisiana. Yes, he’ll miss Wichita Falls, where he’s been doing marketing and promotion for Nexstar’s KFDX. But he’s going to be with his fiancé so all is well. All is super good, actually. Well Dunne! Kyle.

What a weekend. All kinds of firsts and life steps happening all around. It was a romantic one for KYLE KLEINECKE, who is the Creative Services Director at Nexstar’s KFDX in Wichita Falls, TX (shout out to Hollywood Reporter’s SUE RAYMER). Kyle popped The Question and is now an engaged man. He picked a most fabulous locale for the proposal…atop Dallas’ iconic Runion Tower at Wolfgang Puck’s Five Sixty.
It was an achieveing weekend for both SHELLY LESLIE and ANDREA LAIGN, who competed in athletic competitions in North Carolina and New Jersey respectively. Shelly heads up the creative efforts at legendary WRAL in NC’s capital and Andrea wrangles promoting news at WJLA in DC. These two are a-maz-ing. Well Dunne!

Caught up with Tulsan now turned Texan KYLE KLEINECKE, who is heading up the creative efforts at the NBC Fox duopoly in Wichita Falls, TX. He’s been there a bit…slid in under the radar. Well Dunne! Kyle.
Betting on the joy of creating great shows is RYAN LOETSCHER, who spent his last day as CSD at KRNV Reno this last Friday. Ryan said adieu to the Sunbelt-owned NBC affil and is going to start producing content for web-based viewing. He’s very excited about it and that enthusiasm was catchy. Sounds like he’s following his passion, and that’s really the best way to live. Stay in touch, Ryan, and best of luck!
Anybody else wonder about the cost of the Mass Effect 2 game spot during the playoffs yesterday? A 2 minute commercial with voiceover by MARTIN SHEEN. Wow.
Blogging the commercials at SuperBowl…yep, that’s what Well Dunne! is going to do. For the last five years, promo pros have been asked to share their “Favorite Spot” on the Big Game. So shall it be this year, but with a modern twist. During the game, updates on great spots will appear on Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn. Then a summary will be put on the blog. Want to play? Let me know. Grab me on any of the social media. My invites are going out this week and it will be a good blend of volunteers who really know what makes great spots.
