The planets/chakras/teeth? aligned in the fall of 2013. First, How Magazine ran a feature on Pin a Meal. Give a Meal. Second, Nature Valley contacted me about participating in their #MyAdventure campaign. And lastly, I accepted a position with Instrument in Portland, OR. And while I was orchestrating the latter two, I took on one last big extra-credit project at Colle+McVoy. We were doing a down-and-dirty set of Vine/Instagram videos for General Mills' seasonal line of spooky sugar cereals: Count Chocula, Boo Berry, Frankenberry, Yummy Mummy and Frute Brute.
I regret taking so much time to share the work we did, because it was such a perfect way to say goodbye to C+M. Derek Till painted two dozen thrift store knick-knacks baby blue. We drank Lisa Hall's dad's beer. I meticulously placed each marshmallow atop meticulously-placed cereal pieces (with the exception of Chocula). Many, many more people were a part of this project and to their credit, none of them murdered Till during the process.
