THE MOGUL MINUTE
The Polaroid camera brand is a staple in picture taking for 80 years. The unique essence of a having one of their cameras brings about a nostalgic feeling. Growing up in the 90's a Polaroid camera was quite essential. I remember going with my mom to turn in the cameras and get the film developed. I remember the sounds of the camera clicks and the flash. While I'm writing this , the vibes of wanting to get another camera are definitely kicking in.
Through out time , cameras have built superstars , captured models, pivotal moments in history , or fun moments like your birthday, or family reunions. Do you remember those hilarious off guard pics someone snapped of you and you didn't hear the sound, but saw the flash? I know that has happened to some of you too. I know I'm not the only one with funny pictures. Polaroid has released new cameras through out the years and they've recently launched "The New Originals Project" according to magazine.polaroidoriginals.com to celebrate the new Polaroid OneStep 2 camera. Ryan McGinley 25, is helping us discover the next generation of instant photographers. Ryan is the youngest artists to have a solo show at the Whitney Museum of American Art. “For me, the Polaroid format is what opened the door for my photography and creating relationships with the people I photographed,” he says. “With a Polaroid, the moments you have and connections you make with who you’re photographing can be even more impactful than the one shot you have. I chose each of these photographers because I believe they have the creative expression to capture their art and make connections in that one shot.”
McGinley is curating a series of photographs from emerging photographers Hunter Abrams, Marcus Branch, Rochelle Brock, Myles Loftin, and Sabrina Santiago and Polaroid is gifting them a OneStep 2 Camera to capture photo. The new Polaroid Originals OneStep 2 is a new instant camera that’s the spiritual successor to the iconic Polaroid OneStep. Like the original camera, the OneStep 2 is a fully analog camera . It’s compatible with both 600 film and a new i-Type film.

THE MOGUL MINUTE : SPARK, SHINE, AND PARTY WITH PIXMOB ( INTERVIEW WITH DIGITAL MARKETING SPECIALIST SYLVAIN OTTLE ) ( THE MOGUL GIRL)
PixMob is an amazing innovative and genius company. I was introduced to PixMob two years ago at Oprah's "Life You Want Tour" in Washington, D.C. The experience was unforgettable and I couldn't stop talking about the interactive wrist band to my family, friends, and associates. After getting in touch with the Director of Marketing & Communications Laeitia Bedout, and interviewing Commercial Director Jean Olivier Dalphond let's just say I fell in love with the whole idea of PixMob and their mission to connect infuse, light, creativity, technology and social media with giant crowds. The beautifully talented Taylor Swift incorporated PixMob into her 1989 World Tour. If you didn't get to attend maybe you watched her performance on the Grammy's a few weeks ago .The audience had glowing PixMob wristbands as they jammed out to Taylor's opening performance. Taylor Swift's 1989 World Tour consisted of 84 shows, 86 guest, stars, 54 cities, and 10 countries and guess what everyone whom attended was wearing a PixMob wristband. I attended the Philadelphia show at Financial Field with my family and there were 50,000 people in attendance. Not only were the lights beautifully in sync with Taylor's rock star performance but everyone loved the multiple color effects of the the wrist bands. I had the amazing opportunity to meet PixMob Project Manager Sophie Blondeau at the show. It's official if you all haven't noticed I love PixMob and the products and their consistency and innovative new ideas. PixMob just launched their new project "Spark by Pix Mob".
PixMob has created countless immersive experiences world wide, connecting audiences directly to the show with pulsating lights in sync with the sound. Participants become a part of each uniquely designed event.

I reviewed the products and I am 1000% sure not only will you love it and become a triple PixMob fan but you'll you become a PixMob love for life. Sitting in my home using my iPhone to control my PixMob wristband is one of the coolest experiences ever . I interviewed Digital Marketing Specialist Sylvain Ottle all about "Spark" . So check it out below
1.) The Mogul Girl : Why did PixMob decide to create the Spark App?
Sylvain Ottle : Fill the smaller event gaps. We were mainly working with organizations requesting 10K wrist bands and more.

People can now control and create their own experience. Take connectivity to a whole new level.

On June 12, 2015 50,000 Swifties filed the Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia for Taylor Swift's 1989 World Tour. The first of two sold out shows. There were tons of smiles, cute costumes, matching 1989 Taylor shirts, dancing and limitless screams and singing from her fans. Taylor put on an excellent show. She performed some of your 1989 favorites such as Blank Space, Bad Blood, New York, Clean, Style and of course her award winning iHeart Radio Song Of The Year "Shake It Off". Taylor also had multiple positive messages for her audience. She informed us all that "You are not going nowhere just because you haven't gotten there yet " and how important it is to not give up on your dreams.
Taylor had beautiful costume and set changes. Her stage added such a cool feature to her show. It turned 360 degrees and brought her super close to her fans. She also shared videos of her cats and friends and even brought her girlfriends out on stage including a surprise performance of "Cool Kids" with Echosmith. Taylor always knows how to have a fun time. To add even more spice and flare to her 1989 Tour she joined forces with PixMob. PixMob produces wearable LED wireless technology that transforms objects into pixels. Everyone at Taylor's concert world wide received a PixMob wrist band upon entry to the show. I absolutely adore PixMob's products so I was super excited to wear one at the the concert. This special wristband designed specifically for Taylor changed multiple colors throughout the show .
The audience was filled of array of purple, blue, orange, green, pink, and yellow. How cool is it that 2.5 million wristbands will be given to tour goers world wide via (Asia, USA, Canada, Europe, and Australia) ? The show started in Tokyo with 50,000 wristbands and is set to have 70,000 in her upcoming tour in Sydney. To enhance the crowds experience PixMob used two groups to program different effects in the crowd. The effects were amazing including shimmers, strobe, pulses with RGB colors ( in other words the wristbands can light up in as many colors as you could imagine). Taylor's 1989 Tour is a must see. The show runs until September so you'll have an opportunity to party with Taylor and PixMob. I wish I could party with Taylor and PixMob all the time. Taylor's 1989 album is currently available in stores and on iTunes . PixMob has so many big things in the works. You definitely want to stay tuned to what this phenomenal company is up to. They have worked in over 25 countries. They've also teamed up with 250 various shows before Taylor Swift's tour. So that's one million before the tour and four million after the tour. So if PixMob counts all their projects, five million people will have lived the PixMob experience. You can get tickets to Taylor Swift's 1989 Tour (here) and for more on PixMob visit www.pixmob.com . Also check out my interview with Commercial Director Jean Olivier Dalphond (Here) . Huge mogul shoutout to PixMob and all the wonderful members that have built such an amazing company ! Can't wait to see what's next. Taylor is a beautiful performer, and writer. She definitely shined bright in the middle of the PixMob Galaxy of lights. The show ended with breath taking fireworks over Lincoln Financial Field . If you adore your wristbands which I know you do there is an instructional video on how to change the batteries on YouTube (here) . Don't miss out on Taylor Swift and PixMob girls and guys!!!
