Boise in the background

As Don Day first reported at a few days ago, Boise and other areas around the Treasure Valley are currently serving as locations for a Toyota commercial shoot.

The shoot began over the weekend, and is scheduled to wrap today.

Fresh faces in new places

We’ve heard of a few new hires and additions recently. Here are some we’ve come across:

Jodi Sali, Senior Copywriter & Director of Production, DaviesMoore

Jodi joins DaviesMoore after a 20+ year career in radio that included on-air, engineering and production roles. Most recently, he was Director of Production Awesomeness at Town Square Media.

Kristin Fitzpatrick, Digital Account Coordinator, DaviesMoore

Another recent DaviesMoore addition, Kristin received her Bachelor of Arts degree from Humboldt State University, and was previously with Conservation Voters For Idaho (CVI) as a Membership, Events, and Communication Coordinator.

Who else have we missed?

And in the end…

Another Rockie Awards show is in the books.

There was food. And drinks. And revelry.

Oh, and awards were handed out, of course. Our friend and occasional contributor Don Day live tweeted some of them:

Drake Cooper took home Best of Show for their Don’t Fail Idaho work on behalf of the J.A. & Kathryn Albertson Foundation.

Art Gregory was recognized with the Silver Medal Award.

Although he was on vacation in Tanzania when it happened, a collective toast was raised to Bill Drake for his lifetime of work in this crazy business we call advertising, and he received a lifetime membership to the Boise Advertising Federation.

All in all, it was a solid show at an outstanding venue. A hearty ‘well done’ to everyone who helped put on the show.

And the show got started with this fantastic piece of work from John Eames and the folks at North by Northwest:
