The Portland crew did not join us this year. We were fortunate to have them in Minnesota last year as all the stars aligned and schedules worked out perfectly to have them with us. Alas, the stars were crooked this year. But that didn’t stop us!

With offices in both Portland and Minneapolis, it isn’t often we have the chance for everyone to get together as a company, but with WebRanking sponsoring the LinkedMinnesota Holiday Extravaganza the next day, it presented us with the perfect opportunity to do so.
To kick off the evening’s festivities, we met up at a local toy store where we all took part in selecting and purchasing toys to donate to the outstanding Toys for Tots Foundation. As Christmas and the holidays is truly about the kids, this was a tremendous opportunity for us to give back and help brighten the Christmas experience for some very deserving children.

What is Ignite Portland? Each presenter gets 5 minutes on stage with 20 slides that automatically rotate after 15 seconds.

Who Should Attend MnSEM
As proud sponsors of Ignite Portland 9 we were tasked with creating a 30 second promotional video to be played during the event’s intermission at the Bagdad theater. Our original idea was to create a 70’s stylized buddy cop movie trailer with my 1 year old son, but when the “Lil’ Dictator” was more inclined to eat the fake mustache than he was to wear it, we decided to go in a new direction.
While only one of WebRanking’s “two bad brothers you know so well” were available for the filming of the trailer, Tony and I decided to move forward without the “one lone Beastie” and create our own version of Sabotage. While WebRanking certainly have no aspirations of leaving the Search Engine Marketing community after 12 ½ years in order to pursue film making, we did enjoy the process plus it gave me an excuse to sport a mustache for the past couple of months.
The above video is the complete trailer, which is different from the 30 second teaser shown at Ignite Portland 9 and which can be viewed below. Continue reading “Ignite Portland 9 Video | Sabotage: The Movie” »
