Movement inspired by Eddie Murphy Tells Ad Industry to “Turn Off The TV”

Grassroots Advertising Incubator Returns to National Conference to enlighten thought leaders on how a new generation is able to create their own content faster, cheaper and with greater cultural relevance.

On Tuesday March 2, a movement of the new school of culture creators, brand builders, thought leaders & social change agents goes to San Francisco again and this time with a message of media transformation.  Hosted by George 2.0, co-founder of grassroots organization The Marcus Graham Project, the event will take place immediately following a day-long series of discussions hosted by the 4A’s (American Association of Advertising Agencies) during their annual leadership and media conference entitled Transformation 2010.  The event, entitled, Turn Off The TV, will be held from 6pm until 9pm at Eve Lounge located at 575 Howard Street in San Francisco and is named after a recently released project created by George 2.0.

Turn off the TV (TOTV) is a sitcom mix tape that suggests that anybody and everybody can do what they see on television, as long as they turn it off long enough to be proactive about chasing their dreams. As almost all of the music and videos inspired by the mix tape were developed, recorded, shot, and edited with a Laptop, cell phone, or an improvised audio/video device, TOTV is proof that artists of any age and skill level can produce competitive content with little to no resources.

The event will underscore the importance of supporting individuals and organizations that have minimal resources, but have amazing creating potential. The Marcus Graham Project is an emerging network that is strategically focused on building the next generation of diverse leadership in the advertising industry through mentorship, training & career development. “As we prepare to officially launch our organization, we are excited about returning to San Francisco to the 4A’s Leadership Conference as this is the location that we made our industry debut,” says Lincoln Stephens, founder of The Marcus Graham Project.  The program was named after a character that Eddie Murphy played in a 1992 movie entitled Boomerang.

The event will encourage attendees to the Transformation 2010 Conference to think about how they can transform their thinking and pursue their dreams all by turning off the TV.

In addition, the event will feature remarks by Jason Rosenthal, COO for Ning.com. Ning is the social platform for the world’s interests and passions online. Millions of people every day are coming together across Ning to explore and express their interests, discover new passions, and meet new people around shared pursuits.
