In 2010, it was named by Advertising Agency as one of the top ten agencies of the Decade. In 2018 TBWA\Worldwide has been named Adweek's 2018 Global Agency of the Year. TBWA\Worldwide was added to Fast Company's list of the World's Most Innovative Companies in 2019. TBWA has a philosophy called the disruption and Media Arts created by Jean-Marie Dru when he was in BDDP the May 1st of 1992.
This philosophy is outlined in several books by Jean-Marie Dru, such as "Disruption", "How Disruption Brought Order", "Beyond Disruption: Changing the Rules in the Marketplace." In April 2008, Teran/TBWA of Mexico released a controversial advertisement for Absolut Vodka depicting a tongue-in-cheek fictional "perfect world" dubbed "absolut world" depicting the larger Mexico as it existed before the 19th century Mexican–American War, which includes areas now part of the United States. Some time after the billboard was taken down in Mexico City, a photo of it surfaced on a right-wing blog in the US, sparking a short uproar among elements of the media. Pincha la Rueda de Hamilton, a Spanish website run by TBWA, was set up in October 2008, it hosted a game where users could leave objects on a race track to stop the Formula One leader, Lewis Hamilton, from winning the last grand prix of the year in Brazil. It became controversial when users began to leave racist comments aimed at the mixed-race Hamilton and was shut down in November.
The FIA, the sport's governing body, Hamilton's team, McLaren, condemned the comments as "abusive and hateful". In 1997 TBWA developed the Chihuahua campaign for Taco Bell. Two Michigan men, represented by Warner Norcross & Judd LLP, who had earlier pitched the concept to Taco Bell sued and in 2003 a jury awarded them US$30 million in damages and a judge tacked on US$12 million in interest. Taco Bell in turn sued TBWA saying. In 2009 a three-judge federal appeals panel ruled against Taco Bell. In December 2009, TBWA developed the campaign for Häagen-Dazs Ice Cream in India. Several banners were put up that said, "Exclusive Preview for International Travelers - Access restricted only to holders of international passports". Instead of portraying exclusivity, this was perceived negatively due to India's long history of colonialism where access to certain areas was restricted to the white colonizers from Britain. Häagen-Dazs cut ties with TBWA. Lürzer's Archive
The pound sterling known as the pound and less referred to as sterling, is the official currency of the United Kingdom, Guernsey, the Isle of Man, South Georgia and the South Sandwich Islands, the British Antarctic Territory, Tristan da Cunha. It is subdivided into 100 pence. A number of nations that do not use sterling have currencies called the pound. Sterling is the third most-traded currency in the foreign exchange market, after the United States dollar, the euro. Together with those two currencies and the Chinese yuan, it forms the basket of currencies which calculate the value of IMF special drawing rights. Sterling is the third most-held reserve currency in global reserves; the British Crown dependencies of Guernsey and the Isle of Man produce their own local issues of sterling which are considered equivalent to UK sterling in their respective regions. The pound sterling is used in Gibraltar, the Falkland Islands, Saint Helena and Ascension Island in Saint Helena and Tristan da Cunha; the Bank of England is the central bank for the pound sterling, issuing its own coins and banknotes, regulating issuance of banknotes by private banks in Scotland and Northern Ireland.
Banknotes issued by other jurisdictions are not regulated by the Bank of England. The full official name pound sterling, is used in formal contexts and when it is necessary to distinguish the United Kingdom currency from other currencies with the same name. Otherwise the term pound is used; the currency name is sometimes abbreviated to just sterling in the wholesale financial markets, but not when referring to specific amounts. The abbreviations "ster." and "stg." are sometimes used. The term "British pound" is sometimes incorrectly used in less formal contexts, it is not an official name of the currency; the exchange rate of the pound sterling against the US dollar is referred to as "cable" in the wholesale foreign exchange markets. The origins of this term are attributed to the fact that in the 1800s, the GBP/USD exchange rate was transmitted via transatlantic cable. Forex traders of GBP/USD are sometimes referred to as "cable dealers". GBP/USD is now the only currency pair with its own name in the foreign exchange markets, after IEP/USD, known as "wire" in the forward FX markets, no longer exists after the Irish Pound was replaced by the euro in 1999.
There is apparent convergence of opinion regarding the origin of the term "pound sterling", toward its derivation from the name of a small Norman silver coin, away from its association with Easterlings or other etymologies. Hence, the Oxford English Dictionary state that the "most plausible" etymology is derivation from the Old English steorra for "star" with the added diminutive suffix "-ling", to mean "little star" and to refer to a silver penny of the English Normans; as another established source notes, the compound expression was derived: However, the perceived narrow window of the issuance of this coin, the fact that coin designs changed in the period in question, led Philip Grierson to reject this in favour of a more complex theory. Another argument that the Hanseatic League was the origin for both the origin of its definition and manufacture, in its name is that the German name for the Baltic is "Ost See", or "East Sea", from this the Baltic merchants were called "Osterlings", or "Easterlings".
In 1260, Henry III granted them a charter of protection and land for their Kontor, the Steelyard of London, which by the 1340s was called "Easterlings Hall", or Esterlingeshalle. Because the League's money was not debased like that of England, English traders stipulated to be paid in pounds of the "Easterlings", contracted to "'sterling". For further discussion of the etymology of "sterling", see sterling silver; the currency sign for the pound is £, written with a single cross-bar, though a version with a double cross-bar is sometimes seen. This symbol derives from medieval Latin documents; the ISO 4217 currency code is GBP, formed from "GB", the ISO 3166-1 alpha-2 code for the United Kingdom, the first letter of "pound". It does not stand for "Great Britain Pound" or "Great British Pound"; the abbreviation "UKP" is used but this is non-standard because the ISO 3166 country code for the United Kingdom is GB. The Crown dependencies use their own codes: GGP, JEP and IMP. Stocks are traded in pence, so traders may refer to pence sterling, GBX, when listing stock prices.
A common slang term for the pound sterling or pound is quid, singular and plural, except in the common phrase "quids in!". The term may have come via Italian immigrants from "scudo", the name for a number of coins used in Italy until the 19th century.
Dimples (1936 film)
Dimples is a 1936 American musical film directed by William A. Seiter; the screenplay was written by Arthur Sheekman. The film is about a young mid-nineteenth century street entertainer, separated from her pickpocket grandfather when given a home by a wealthy New York City widow; the film was panned by the critics. Videocassette and DVD versions of the film were available in 2009. In New York City in 1853, 8-year-old Dimples is a Bowery busker living with her pickpocket grandfather "Professor" Eustace Appleby, she is hired to entertain at a soiree in the Washington Square Park home of wealthy widow Caroline Drew. Mrs. Drew is so charmed by Dimples she opens her home and heart to the child, providing her a life of comfort and plenty. Mrs. Drew's nephew Allen, a theatrical producer, abandons his sweetheart Betty Loring for haughty actress Cleo Marsh, his family is scandalized, but Allen pursues his goal of staging a brand-new play, Uncle Tom's Cabin, with Dimples portraying Little Eva. During rehearsals, Dimples longs for her grandfather and returns to his humble dwelling, refusing to budge without the old man in tow.
Mrs. Drew traces Dimples to the Bowery and a solution is found to the impasse. Allen realizes he is reunited with her. Dimples appears in New York City's first minstrel show. Shirley Temple as Sylvia'Dimples' Dolores Appleby, a street entertainer in New York City circa 1850 and Professor Appleby's granddaughter Frank Morgan as Professor Eustace Appleby, a pickpocket and Dimples's grandfather Helen Westley as Mrs. Caroline Drew, Allen’s aunt and Dimples’s patroness Robert Kent as Allen Drew, a theatrical producer and Caroline Drew's nephew Astrid Allwyn as Cleo Marsh, a haughty actress and Allen's sudden romantic interest Delma Byron as Betty Loring, Allen’s betrothed and the daughter of Colonel Loring Berton Churchill as Colonel Jasper Loring, Betty’s father Julius Tannen as Emery T. Hawkins, a swindler John Carradine as Richards, a swindler Stepin Fetchit as Cicero, a servant Billy McClain as Rufus Jack Clifford as Uncle Tom, a character in Allen’s new play Betty Jean Hainey as Topsy, a character in Allen’s new play Paul Stanton as Mr. St. Clair, a character in Allen’s new play The Hall Johnson Choir as Choir This movie was to be titled The Bowery Princess but was changed as it was deemed too coarse for Temple's image.
There was a great deal of friction on the set of this movie as Morgan and Temple tried to steal scenes from one another. Morgan would place his stovepipe hat on a table blocking Temple's face and forcing her to move her marks and out of the camera lights, he would keep moving his hands near her eye level by tinkering with a handkerchief or placing on gloves. Temple for her part scratch her face. In the scene where Morgan's character gets ripped off by con men, Temple jiggled the fishing pole she was holding in the background in an attempt to draw attention away from Morgan, she worked with Robinson to devise ways of creating rhythmic pauses and gestures in her dance movements to prevent scene stealing from Morgan. Producer Nunally Johnson, commenting on the scene stealing, remarked that "When this picture is over, either Shirley will have acquired a taste for Scotch whiskey or Frank will come out with curls." The film's songs – "Hey, What Did the Blue Jay Say", "He Was a Dandy", "Picture Me Without You", "Get On Board", "Dixie-anna", "Wings of the Morning" – were written by Jimmy McHugh and lyricist Ted Koehler.
The dances were choreographed by Bill Robinson who appeared with Temple in four films and partnered her for the famous staircase dance in The Little Colonel. Sony Computer Entertainment used the song Get On Board for a PlayStation 2 advertisement entitled "Mountain". Frank Nugent wrote in The New York Times that the film was "not the best Temple, nor the worst” and thought her performance as Little Eva in Allen's play "sheer bathos". Louella Parsons wrote, “The Golden Temple baby is growing up—both taller and broader—but her million-dollar personality remains the same and she needs it for Dimples. Temple scholar Robert Windeler notes that Temple was upstaged for the first time in one of her pictures. Frank Morgan played Temple’s “Micawberesque grandfather with such energy and fun as to render Shirley faltering and hollow. In 2009, videocassette and DVD editions were available in the original black and white and in computer-colorized versions of the original; some editions included other special features.

Post-production is part of the process of filmmaking, video production, radio production and photography. Post-production includes all stages of production occurring after shooting or recording individual program segments. Traditional post-production has been replaced by video editing software that operates on a non-linear editing system. Post-production is many different processes grouped under one name; these include: Video editing the picture of a television program using an edit decision list Writing and editing the soundtrack. Adding visual special effects - computer-generated imagery and digital copy from which release prints will be made. Sound design, sound effects, ADR, music, culminating in a process known as sound re-recording or mixing with professional audio equipment. Transfer of color motion picture film to video or DPX with a telecine and color grading in a color suite; the post-production phase of creating a film takes longer than the actual shooting of the film and can take several months to complete because it includes the complete editing, color correction, the addition of music and sound.
The process of editing a movie is seen as the second directing because through post-production it is possible to change the intention of the movie. Furthermore, through the use of color grading tools and the addition of music and sound, the atmosphere of the movie can be influenced. For instance, a blue-tinted movie is associated with a cold atmosphere and the choice of music and sound increases the effect of the shown scenes to the audience. Post-production was named a "dying industry" by Phil Izzo; the once exclusive service offered by high-end post-production facilities have been eroded away by video editing software that operates on a non-linear editing system. As such, traditional post-production services are being surpassed by digital, leading to sales of over $6 billion annually. In television, the phases of post-production include: editing, video editing, sound editing and visual effects insertions and the start of the airing process, it is imperative that post-production executes and oversees the Professional post-producers apply a certain range of image editing operations to the raw image format provided by a photographer or an image-bank.
There is a range of proprietary and free and open-source software, running on a range of operating systems available to do this work. The first stage of post-production requires loading the raw images into the post-production software. If there is more than one image, they belong to a set, ideally post-producers try to equalize the images before loading them. After that, if necessary, the next step would be to cut the objects in the images with the Pen Tool for a perfect and clean cut; the next stage would be cleaning the image using tools such as the healing tool, clone tool, patch tool. The next stages depend on. If it's a photo-montage, the post-producers would start assembling the different images into the final document, start to integrate the images with the background. In advertising, it requires assembling several images together in a photo-composition. Types of work done: Advertising that requires one background and one or more models. Product-photography that requires several images of the same object with different lights, assembled together, to control light and unwanted reflections, or to assemble parts that would be difficult to get in one shot, such as a beer glass for a beer advertising.
Fashion photography that requires a heavy post-production for editorial or advertising. Techniques used in music post-production include comping and pitch correction, adding effects; this process is referred to as mixing and can involve equalization and adjusting the levels of each individual track to provide an optimal sound experience. Contrary to the name, post-production may occur at any point during recording and production process and is non-linear and nonveridic
