USA Networks has spearheaded a new series of awards for innovators and revolutionaries called Character Approved
USA Network's Character Approved Awards honor the real characters who are changing the face of American Culture. Character Approved honorees are innovators in their field who influence our opinions, our style, and our view of the world. They surprise us and inspire us with fresh ideas. They are celebrated by their peers and they have an authentic style that's all their own.
The micro site features a really fun and insightful series of interviews/vignettes with some of the honorees who include:
Revolutionary pop artist Kehinde Wiley
Elegantly young and hip american designer Narciso Rodriguez
Sustainable, clean, local food pioneer Dan Barber of the super tasty and eco friendly Blue Hill @ STONE BARNS!
Check out the "Honorees" section to view all of the videos.
In the interest of full disclosure I should note that I worked on the production of the vignettes filmed on the East Coast.
