Slogan Media Begins Writing New Web Series SNOW DAY

By | See Our Work | No Comments


A romantic comedy about the life you have and the one you that's just within reach.

A romantic comedy web series about the life you have and the one that’s almost within reach.

Throughout 2014, I have had the tremendous pleasure of working on some of the best web series around through my client, Comedy Central’s CC: Studios.   All this company of greatness I hope will rub off as I announce that Slogan Media begins writing new web series SNOW DAY!   This is an original high-concept romantic comedy I am writing for client Uncut Casting Services.

The story takes place in LA when two business travelers find themselves with a lot of time on their hands as the east coast gets buried in an historic snow storm.  They start talking, end up spending all day and all night together, and find their attraction irresistible.  But is it real?  Or is it an illusion that will fade?

There are many parallels between the illusion of all LA has to offer, and all the promises of a new relationship.  Do they go back to the routine when the storm passes back east?  Or do they pursue this developing dream?  Is it even possible to make the magic last?

In January I on-lined the hilarious feature JASON NASH IS MARRIED for CC: Studios, with an all-star cast including Nash,  Andy Richter (Conan), T.J. Miller (Silicon Valley), Paul F. Thompkins, Nick Swardson, Andrew Daly and many more.  Trust me, you will want to see this.


In March I colored & mixed IDIOTSITTER starring Jillian Bell (Workaholics), Charlotte Newhouse (Community), and the legendary Stephen Root (Office Space, No Country for Old Men, etc, etc.)  This is a true masterpiece.


Most recently, I just completed finishing on BRO-DEPENDENT season 2 coming out May 1 on CC: Studios.


SNOW DAY will be a great marketing vehicle for Uncut’s many talented actors.  And I’m very excited to be getting back behind the camera again with a story that’s very personal to me and very funny at the same time.  More updates to come!

-John Stobaugh


T.J. Miller in EXTRACT


By | See Our Work | No Comments




Last year brought many great highlights for Slogan Media including producing commercials for brands like Quilted Northern, Samuel Adams & Best Western – as well as co-producing multiple festival shorts.  We even provided editing, coloring & mixing services on an upcoming movie called JASON NASH IS MARRIED starring Nash, PATTON OSWALT, BUSY PHILLIPS, PAUL F. THOMPKINS, ANDY RICHTER, CASEY WILSON & NICK SWARDSON.

This year is already off to a great start with IDIOTSITTER (above).  This star-studded web series by Groundlings stars Charlotte Newhouse & Jillian Bell (WORKAHOLICS) & featuring Stephen Root (OFFICE SPACE) and T.J. Miller (GET HIM TO THE GREEK) will definitely, DEFINITELY make you laugh.  I love working on projects I would actually watch, and I love my art.

Thank you to all clients – past and future – for making all this possible!  Please check out IDIOTSITTER (above) and check back in with SLOGANMEDIA.NET often.

How Slogan Media’s Top 10 Poptent Content Went

"What Do You Know..." Finished In The Top-10 And Has Already Lead To Another Assignment

“What Do You Know…” Finished In The Top-10 And Has Already Lead To Another Assignment

July 15, 2013

Poptent.com.  What is it?  I hadn’t heard of it until a few months ago, and upon first visit, was pretty damn intrigued by the concept:  Big Brands (Durex, Samuel Adams, Budweiser) reach out to the filmmaking community (such as Slogan Media) and ask for our commercial ideas.  This clever business model has changed the game and made it possible for start-ups like ours to accelerate exponentially toward critical mass.  Any self-respecting filmmaker would jump all over this chance to make ads that will be seen by top executives at these fortune 500 companies.  And we are nothing if not self-respecting.

So we entered a competition to write and produce a Samuel Adams commercial (playable in the viewer directly above).  We studied the creative brief for the project to assist us in our development process, funneling attention to the distinctiveness of their brand.  Samuel Adams was the pioneer of the American Craft Beer revolution, and they wanted the general audience to remember this.  Additionally, they wanted to convey that their brand is world-renowned and enjoyed by all.  With these keystone themes in place, we crafted a pragmatic, accessible concept that we felt met the desires of the brand and would still look gorgeous.  We were aiming for a perfect mixture of information and inspiration.

We were pretty excited to be working with such a big brand, but it comes with a hefty caveat: Poptent is a competitive forum, and we were up against hundreds of other filmmakers.  We were a bit daunted to see just how many there were.  But there was no time to dwell.  So we focused and finished and watched as our entry traded positions with the other ad entries.

Finally we climbed our way up into the top 10.  And after months of waiting, we are excited to announce that on July 10th our ad was named an “Editors Pick” (pictured left) beating out hundreds of talented applicants!   This is our first Poptent, and we could not be more pleased with the result!

The success from our Samuel Adams commercial and award lead directly to our next Poptent project: a commercial for the new Budweiser bowtie can! (below)

Kogan's Spot Is Currently Leading The Competition

Kogan’s New Spot Is Currently Leading The Competition

When we learned the talent level of this competition – only fifteen filmmakers were chosen – we felt deeply honored just to be there!  We finished editing already and proudly submitted it.  I can honestly say we put our all into it and it turned out spectacular.  The results for this competition will be revealed soon.

We invite you to follow our story by Liking us on Facebook, Following us on LinkedIN, or subscribing to our free email list.

Poptent harnesses the creativity of the crowd.  Our tightly connected world makes this possible, and has brought opportunities to our feet that would have been unlikely in an earlier era.  Which is fine by us.  All we wanted when we formed Slogan Media was to keep making films.   We make little distinction between films for advertisement, marketing, or the big screen.   No one knows which art form we’ll all love in five years anyway.  It’s up to the crowd.
