Now living among faeries, warlocks, vampires and werewolves, Clary begins a journey of self-discovery as she learns more about her past and what her future may hold. She quickly learns to navigate in this hidden Shadow World full of unthinkable danger. As she is forced into action, she embraces her newfound powers and realizes that she will play the central role in this new world.

SHADOWHUNTERS is executive produced by Ed Decter, McG, Robert Kulzer from Constantin Film, Michael Lynne and Robert Shaye from Unique Features, Marjorie David and Michael Reisz and produced by Don Carmody, David Cormican and Martin Moszkowicz from Constantin Film.

The Pepsi(R) Challenge(TM): Epic. Music. Sports. Tech. Design. Purpose.

leave a comment »

-The Most Ambitious Consumer Call to Action Ever for Pepsi Taps Global Superstars, New Technologies and Powerful Partners for Amazing
Experiences Designed to Launch a Global Movement and Galvanize Generations to “Live For Now”

PRNewswire/ — Take the #PepsiChallenge and step out of your routine to do something different.

Experience the interactive Multimedia News Release here:

Beginning today and continuing throughout 2015, this will become the hallmark of the Pepsi® Challenge™ as Pepsi unleashes its biggest socially-led, content driven initiative ever with a variety of global and local challenges designed to galvanize consumers around the world to defy convention, make every moment — big or small — epic, and truly “Live for Now.” Issued on Pepsi social and digital channels and via renowned ambassadors from around the world, #PepsiChallenge will incite consumers to take on different challenges for amazing life experiences and rewards.

Imbued with the cultural standing that has become its trademark, the 2015 content-driven, socially-led Pepsi Challenge will bring out-of-this-world films, once-in-a-lifetime music events, unique sports experiences and a global movement that will light up entire communities.

“Pepsi Challenge is an iconic piece of our brand equity and in many ways established our can-do attitude and spirit,” said Kristin Patrick, Senior Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer, PepsiCo Global Beverage Brands. “When we talked to consumers around the globe about what challenge meant to them today, they resoundingly said that it entailed challenging convention and daring to do something differently. We used that sentiment as our inspiration to expand beyond just taste and re-imagine the Pepsi Challenge for new generations, creating this cross-pollination of experiences, events, community and social advocacy, designed to ignite a mindset that challenges the status quo, our fans and ourselves.”

The 2015 Pepsi Challenge

Global challenges will be unveiled across areas of pop culture that consumers are passionate about — technology, music, sports and design — and are accessible by visiting and Pepsi social channels around the world. Among the global challenges:

Technology: An unprecedented, inaugural brand collaboration with UrtheCast, which is providing the world’s first full-color Ultra High-Definition video camera in space. Featuring out-of-this-world footage captured by UrtheCast’s HD video camera and its medium-resolution camera onboard the International Space Station (ISS), Pepsi will challenge live production conventions with the first-ever, epic film adventure shot from space.
Music: A can’t miss experience at Rock In Rio Brazil, the biggest music festival in the world that for 30 years has showcased an unparalleled collection of performers in one place.
Sports: A collection of unconventional global sporting events and experiences anchored by some of the world’s most beloved sports heroes.
Design: An extraordinary opportunity for fans to re-envision the facade of a Pepsi can with their own creative designs and flair.
Global challenges will be augmented by regionally relevant challenges designed to capture the authentic essence of their market. Examples from around the world include “Crash the Pepsi IPL,” a three-month campaign challenging consumers in India to create and submit their own Pepsi ad for a chance to be aired during Indian Premier League games during the 2015 Pepsi IPL season; regional food-focused challenges in Thailand; and a Latin America summer music challenge tied to La Gira Refrescante.

Pepsi Challenge Ambassadors

Each global challenge will be led by a global Pepsi ambassador. Chosen for their ability to transcend borders and challenge convention, these global ambassadors include:

Eight-time Grammy award winning entertainer with more than 65 million records sold worldwide, Usher
19-time tennis Grand Slam champion and undisputed greatest female tennis player of all-time, Serena Williams
The rising futbol superstar who served notice to the world in 2014, Colombia and Real Madrid’s James Rodriguez
The “Fastest Man Alive” and six-time Olympic gold medalist, Usain Bolt
World-renowned fashion designer, creative director and fashion editor widely known for collaborations with Diesel, Uniqlo and Lady Gaga, Nicola Formichetti
Mobile storyteller and international social media phenomenon with the most followed Snapchat account in the world, Jerome Jarre
“Throughout my life I have aspired to live each day with purpose and as an artist it is especially important to take risks and follow your passions,” said Usher. “It is great to team up with Pepsi to encourage people all over the world to live their life to the fullest and experience things they may have never dreamed of before.”

Challenge Darkness

Underpinning and uniting each and every #PepsiChallenge is a way for people around the world to make an impact. Through a partnership with the Liter of Light organization, Pepsi will bring cost effective solar lighting solutions to communities in need while recycling plastic bottles. To date, Liter of Light has provided ecologically-sustainable lighting solutions, free of cost, to more than 18 countries including Brazil, India, Kenya, Colombia, Indonesia, Mexico, Egypt, Pakistan and the Philippines. Through an expansion of an existing partnership with PepsiCo, every time consumers around the world use the #PepsiChallenge hash tag on public Instagram, Facebook, Twitter or YouTube profiles, Pepsi will donate $1 to Liter of Light to help bring light to people around the world who need it most.

The global, 360-integrated Pepsi Challenge program will also include several global television commercials, digital content, consumer engagement programs, point of sale, special packaging, impactful out of home and a robust digital and social program.

Interior Design Trends That Are Here To Stay

leave a comment »

-Recent Market Trends in Interior Design & Consumers’ Preferences

SINGAPORE, Nov. 4, 2014 /PRNewswire/ — Creating dramatic impacts from simplicity is the new black! And it doesn’t look like it’s going to stop just there in the upcoming year.

As the new generation of home buyers travel and become more exposed to the latest international trends via the internet, they also knew exactly what they want in their homes. Instead of just simply buying a house, more and more buyers are buying properties based on their exterior and interior designs. These days, planning and design starts right from the beginning. Gone are the days where you simply purchase an empty house and worry about the interior design later.

Whether you buying a new property or updating the look of your home, all it takes are a few simple steps or changes to breathe life into familiar spaces.

6 fresh interior design trends to watch out for in 2015!

Alright, you may have seen some of these ideas around for some time, but there’s always a time when some of them tends to take the lead when it comes to the latest trends. Here’s our Interior Designer Picks for 2015. From the unique characters and charming details of it, we will say it’s going to be a year of personality, serenity and versatility.

1.     Brass is the new class

More and more interior designers are using brass as one of their interior highlights. When done right, brass not only looks classy but timeless too. In fact, brass has been unveiled as one of the rising trends, particularly in the kitchen, bath tubs, lamp stands and other ornamental pieces. Since it has been gathering the nods from industry experts in 2014, we foresee it to be one of the hottest trends in 2015. If you have not yet implement this, this is a perfect time.

2.     Floral Influence

We have seen these floral designs and chint textiles in the 80s and now they are back! Yes, you heard us right. Floral textiles makes a great option for any new designs. They have not only taken over the fashion design world, but also the interior design world, and since they overlap in more than one market, we will say that this trend has the staying power.

3.     Pastel hues & watercolours

A must-have hue for fabrics and walls, says PROZfile interior designers and interior decorators. Pastel hues and water colours with soft, undefined edges and lightweight materials that are reminiscent of water are expected to be the in-thing in 2015. For finishes, mirrored finishes and materials that appear pearl-like, opaque or milky will be the next big favourite.

4.     Lighter-tone woods

Thanks to the overzealous use of gloomy lumber over the past few years, light, fresh looking, honey-toned woods have taken over the trend. Oak and Cherry woods are the in-thing as they are both fantastic in durability and aesthetic appeal. PROZfile Pte Ltd suggest home owners to go for high quality versions that they not only make a good investment, but also an elegant and exquisite show piece for generations to come.

5.     Rustic and retro styles

2015 will be the year for reinventing classy luxury and versatility. With their inviting colours, rustic and retro themes are anticipated to be popular for creating functional living spaces. There will be a surge of reusable and recyclable ideas in terms of design and decoration, and these styles will add an individual look for those looking to instil self-identity into modern interiors. A popular trend for some time in the international arena, PROZfile Pte Ltd is pleased to announce that these trends will remain popular in the local scene for the next few years as more home owners opt for increased self-identity.

6.     Soft Black & White

A well-known pairing which has become the staple and default colours in interior design. Gone are the harsh tones, instead we will be seeing a shift to softer tones of black and white which is more comfy and relaxing on the eye in the upcoming year. An almost timeless trend, these softer tones look like they are going to stay for a long time.

At an event in Sydney, NSW Deputy Premier and Minister for Tourism and Major Events, Andrew Stoner, Destination NSW’s CEO, Sandra Chipchase and representatives from The Royal Shakespeare Company were joined by special guest and Matilda’s Composer and Lyricist, Tim Minchin, who treated guests to two numbers from the performance.

NSW Deputy Premier and Minister for Tourism and Major Events, Andrew Stoner, said: “Roald Dahl’s Matilda has inspired and encouraged people of all ages for many years, and it is fantastic to be able to bring the world renowned musical production of this classic novel to our harbour city.

“This Australian premiere season of Matilda The Musical will give visitors yet another reason to experience,Sydney, Australia’s global city, and I encourage everyone to make sure they book tickets well in advance so they don’t miss out on the opportunity to see this fantastic production at Sydney’s Lyric Theatre,” Mr Stoner said.

The winner of over 50 international awards, Matilda The Musical is based on the beloved novel by best-selling author Roald Dahl (Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Fantastic Mr. Fox).

Featuring music and lyrics by Australian comedian, musician and composer Tim Minchin, Matilda The Musical has proven an enormous success in London’s West End and on Broadway, where productions play to packed houses and capture the imagination of young and old alike.

The Australian premiere playing at Sydney Lyric Theatre from 28 July 2015.

Tim Minchin said, “I am incredibly excited that Matilda is opening in Sydney. Ten years ago this month, I was writing songs for the 2004 Christmas show at the Old Fitz in Woolloomooloo. The first time I straightened my hair and put on thick eye make-up was downstairs at the Seymour Centre. I even wrote songs for the musical that opened the Joan Sutherland centre in Penrith, (the opening song of which I extensively stole from when I wrote the opening number for Matilda).

“Last year I fulfilled a dream of acting in a Stoppard at the Sydney Theatre Company. Long before anyone took much notice of my silly tunes, Sydney offered me some of the most edifying and hilarious experiences of my career. The thought that in less than a year, the Lyric’s curtain will be opening on our darling Matilda feels just perfect.”
