Location: Haslett, MI
Nomination Title: THE HEALERS
Website: www.HealingWithDrCraig.com
Category: TV Pilot

dr.craigThrough our pro bono program we get to meet some incredibly interesting and inspirational people. One of our friends, Dr. Craig Oster, was diagnosed in 1994 with ALS, better known as Lou Gehrig’s disease. We met Dr. Craig in 2009 through a video produced pro bono by Scott Allman Productions, entitled Grateful to Be Here.  While most victims of Lou Gehrig’s disease die within 3-5 years of diagnosis, Dr. Craig has fought the degenerative neuromuscular disease for 18 years. Along the way, he earned a Ph.D. in clinical psychology at Michigan State University and served as an inspiration to the many healers and patients that daily grapple with the disease. With the help of Troy Anthony Garriga, Jr. and Brandon Klock, Dr. Craig has produced a pilot for a television series called THE HEALERS. It is a holistic approach to healing that is intended to give people who are suffering physically, mentally and emotionally, the inspiration and hope they that thought was beyond their grasp.

Title of Entry: CENTURY 21 Moves Into SimCity  Social
Location: Boston, MA
Client: CENTURY 21
Category: 3c.Social Campaign

Boston based Mullen was looking to increase Century 21’s profile among consumers between the ages of 25-34. This coveted age group represents the largest share of homebuyers. How people shop for homes has drastically changed in recent years and Century 21 wanted an innovative way to tap into the seismic shift. Mullen created a digital campaign that integrated social media with the gaming community. Research shows that 81 million people play social games and that 27% of them are either buying homes or thinking about it. Mullen partnered with SimCity to put Century 21 in the game. Players could place Century 21 offices into their cities and win bonuses. Almost 200,000 gamers took advantage of the offer. The campaign also created a huge jump in Facebook likes and generated a number of media stories around the country.
