It’s a busy week at The Orchard as we wrap up the year and celebrate the holidays. We had our annual Ugly Sweater party featuring sparkly cats and human sized Christmas trees. It’s a season of cheer and gathering and nothing brings people together quite like music. We’ve got releases from two very different artists for you this week. A Spanish alt-pop group just want to talk and a thrash rock album will get you moshing, all out today.
It is evident that video has dominated 2017. This is because unlike emails, tweets, or a photo, videos content is the closest to reality. We are able to feel that we are a part of the same story the video is sharing. It takes over our imagination, hearing, and sight; this is currently the only format compatible with our senses and creativity. For personal interaction, advertisements, film, and video – motion is the common thread. It’s important to understand why video has risen to prominence to become better prepared for the future of advertising: artificial reality interfaces.

My name is Ryan Mazie and I am the new manager of National Theatrical Publicity.
Originally from New Jersey, I spent my last semester of Emerson College “abroad” in Los Angeles and never left.
I started my career doing personal publicity for an array of actors, musicians, directors, and writers before moving over to Focus Features where I have been for the past year before joining The Orchard.
