Toronto-based recording artist Spookey Ruben, famous for the success of his 1996 album release “Modes of Transportation,” invited FTP Media Founder and Director Lisa Santonato to apply for a PromoFACT award to produce an Electronic Press Kit for his latest release. The application was submitted and successful. The challenge was on. How to capture the energy of the artist known as Spookey, and update fans on his whereabouts over the years? It took a trip to Los Angeles and San Francisco to find out, but find out we did… with a little help of an old VHS tape featuring Spookey performing live in his early years. This is FTP Media’s EPK for Spookey Ruben, featuring songs from the double-disc album release of 2001, “Bed” and “Breakfast.” © FTP Media Inc. 2003.
Play Records hired FTP Media to produce an enhanced DVD highlighting the label’s main publishing library and commercial releases. The DVD was built to include Play Records’ extensive catalogue in playable form, whether using a conventional DVD player or a home PC. The DVD includes an Electronic Press Kit (EPK) featuring a 30-second pre-menu opening and three promo videos describing the three divisions of Play.
