Euronav Orders Suezmax Duo at HHI

first_imgBelgian tanker owner and operator Euronav has placed an order for two high specification Ice Class Suezmax vessels with Hyundai Heavy Industries (HHI) shipyard in South Korea. The company said that the order has been prompted by the signing of an additional two long-term time charter contracts of seven years each with Valero Energy Inc. for two Suezmax vessels with specialised Ice Class 1C capability starting in late 2018.The latest deal is the fourth Euronav’s long-term (seven years) Suezmax time charter contract, the company added.Delivery of these vessels is expected in the second half of 2018 when each of the time charter contracts will begin.“Euronav believes it has secured an excellent price for two high specification vessels in line with its policy of not adding speculative new capacity to the global tanker fleet. Euronav anticipates the new vessels on order will replace its older Suezmax vessels hence this order will not add net tonnage to the global Suezmax tanker fleet,” Euronav said.The fleet renewal is in line with Euronav’s expectations that asset values are approaching a low point supported by reduced immediate newbuilding berths at the yards and fewer speculative buyers.Furthermore, the company pointed out that the addition of the further two seven-year contracts greatly increases its fixed income contribution to EBITDA in 2018 and onwards.“By extending our strong partnership with a key customer, Euronav is also providing high quality and long duration earnings visibility for our stakeholders. Such fixed income capability provides Euronav with enhanced financial optionality as we move forward,” Euronav’s CEO, Paddy Rodgers noted.In terms of its newbuilding fleet, the company recently acquired two VLCCs under construction which were acquired as resales of existing newbuilding contracts and four Suezmaxes under construction. The latest order brings Euronav’s owned and operated fleet to 57 ships, including also 1 V-Plus vessel, 31 VLCCs, 19 Suezmaxes and two FSO vessels (both owned in 50%-50% joint venture).last_img read more

South African selected for London International Awards jury

first_img25 April 2016A South African has been included in the radio and audio jury in the London International Awards (LIA) 2016, taking place on 8 November, with judging taking place from 6 to 14 October.Executive creative director of advertising agency Ogilvy & Mather in Joburg, Mariana O’Kelly has been selected to be on the jury for the international media awards.According to the Ogilvy & Mather website, she’s worked at prestigious agencies such as Hunt Lascaris, Jupiter Drawing Room and Net#work BBDO for over 18 years. She joined Ogilvy & Mather in 2011.“She has been recognised at Cannes, D&AD, One Show, Clios, Eagles and Loeries and has helped build brands like Nike, BMW, Virgin Atlantic, Mercedes Benz, Economist, Cell C, Nedbank and Chicken Licken,” reads the site.Paul Wauters, the radio and audio jury president at the LIA and the co-founder and executive creative director of Babel in Paris, said it was difficult to get radio right.“I’m looking forward to honouring the brave men and women who never tire of rewriting the script, spending time on the length of the dramatic pause and the well-balanced Swedish accent,” he said. “At the same time, I’m hoping to see innovative ideas and new ways to create connections with a scattered and ad-averse audience.”Since 2014, there’s been an increase in entries in the category. “[It’s] a confirmation of the large volume of effort and innovation that agencies put into the medium,” reads South African media news site, Bizcommunity.Other jury members include:Paul Wauters – co-founder/executive creative director, Babel, Paris, France (jury president)Chris Smith – group creative director, The Richards Group, Dallas, USAChuck Rachford – executive creative director, Cossette Chicago, Chicago, USALarissa Kirschner – vice-president, creative director, Publicis, New York, USAOliver Handlos – creative lead of activation, Grey, New York, USARalph van Dijk – founder and creative director, Eardrum, Sydney, AustraliaTom Eymundson – chief executive, Pirate Group, Toronto, CanadaAbout the LIACreated in 1986 and formerly known as the London International Advertising Awards, the awards honour excellence in the fields of advertising, digital, production, design, music and sound, and technology. In 2004, the word “advertising” was removed to reflect that the awards observed more than advertising in a fast changing media industry.“The juries are comprised of the most talented, recognised and awarded individuals from within their respective fields,” reads the LIA website.“Jury members are required to attend from the commencement of judging through statue discussions.“Every member on each jury panel, including the jury president, judges all entries (they are not permitted to judge their own work) in their respective media without bias as to origin of work by country, company or individual.”Source: Bizcommunitylast_img read more

Senhor da Pedra — Geocache of the Week

It is the outermost region of the European Union and an autonomous region of Portugal. Known for its idyllic climate, flowing wine, romantic beaches, and sheer cliffs, Madeira is also home to close to 1,200 active geocaches.You must be thinking, “Geocaching in gloriously warm climate with stunning landscapes and flowing wine—where’s the grit and the character-building adventure of that?!” Luckily, this traditional cache provides a mildly challenging hike with a big pay off in a phenomenal location. Perfect!You’ll start your journey at the São Jorge (St. George) lighthouse, a sweet little spot to prepare for your trek and take in the ocean views. The lighthouse was, “…designed in 1948 and started to function in 1959. Its structure is a cylindrical tower 14-meters high, and the focus is at an altitude of 271 meters. Its light has a range of 16 miles, and its operation is automated in 1986 after being electrified in 1962.”São Jorge (St. George) lighthouseThe next step is to find the path to the geocache. Once you are on the path, you will see why this geocache earned its 3.5 terrain rating. There are many paths—will you take the correct one? Will your path be full of mud with no alternate route? Will you slip and fall in the mud? Will this actually be worth it? Stay strong, intrepid geocachers, because yes, the payoff will be worth it.Path to the geocacheAt the end of the path on the very edge of a cliff, you will find a very large rock. Many years ago it broke free from the hills above, rolled down the rugged terrain, then suddenly stopped right on this precipice. This was so amazing and odd that the locals built a small shrine in honor of the “Lady of the Stone” and placed it underneath the boulder. This “monument’ is full of religious statues, candles, flowers, stones, and other knickknacks. It is also a wonderful place for quiet reflection and to sign a logbook.Path to the geocacheIf this amazing rock and little shrine weren’t enough, check out that view! On the left you can see Porto Moniz very far away, while on the right you can look down and see the old pier of São Jorge. Can it get any better than this?View from above the rockRecent logs:Siggi72This is my second time visiting Madeira but the first time with Geocaching. Without geocaching I wouldn’t have seen this “balancing” rock with the small shrine and the great views. Thanks for showing!Amazing location for a geocacheComètesOn our way, we could not miss this cache, that we already bookmarked in France when preparing our trip. Its D/T ratio is the only one missing in on matrix. We first discovered the lighthouse, then went down to GZ. 148 steps later, we were at the right place. A special place, as many ones that we can discover since we are practising geocaching. We found the box with the help of the spoiler. While we were signing the logbook, a rainbow appeared above the Ocean. To celebrate our fully filled matrix? Thank you for this great cache!At the shrine under the rockED77First we had problems to find the right access and had almost given up. Fortunately we found the right way otherwise we have missed a great adventure and a total crazy place! The path down was a real adventure but at the end worth every step How curious to place a shrine under this huge stone!

3 Tenets to Consider When Taking on New Video Projects

first_imgLet’s take a look at the “Three P’s” of taking on new filmmaking or videography projects: passion, prestige, and profit.Cover image via Shutterstock.As a freelance videographer or editor, you have the luxury (or burden, at times) of choosing the projects you work on. Sometimes, these gigs can be for awesome clients, representing awesome brands that will improve your reel while making you some money.Other times, you’ll have to work for little to no money, for terrible clients, and for boring brands you wouldn’t want anyone to see. So how do you, as a smart investor in your own brand, make these video project decisions?Well, let’s explore what I like to call the “Three P’s of Picking Projects.” If you cross-examine a new project with the values of these three tenets (passion, prestige, and profit), you can make smart decisions to help you improve your craft, expand your portfolio, and further your career.Tenet One: PassionImage via Shutterstock.Understanding what makes you tick is a huge part of defining your own success. There are certain types of projects that we all gravitate to that don’t feel like work at all. These “passion” projects motivate you to dive in, try new things, and make the best work possible.Passion projects are sometimes few and far between. Sometimes, you have to make or find them yourself, but they are highly important to your creative well-being. However, they are also often the types of projects that pay the least — but, they can be highly prestigious (think of a film getting into a festival, or winning an award).Tenet Two: PrestigeImage via Shutterstock.When choosing a project, it’s also important to consider how the project will reflect back on you. If you’re in a corporate track, working with big corporate brands may offer a level of prestige that validates your work and your brand. Your work could also get a boost by appearing on a national stage and garnering thousands more views than anything you could do on your own.Sometimes clients can be aware of this (nonprofits and savvy start-up clients do this all the time), and they may ask for cheaper prices or pro-bono work to help elevate your brand with the work.Tenet Three: ProfitImage via Shutterstock.This may be the most important tenet to consider. If video production is your career, you have to make decisions that will make you money to pay your bills. While passion and prestige are important — and can help garner higher profits in the future — at the end of the day, you will always need to consider what a project pays.As such, the most profitable projects are often the least prestigious and inspire the least passion. Some examples might include medical industry work, long-form HR training video series, or corporate explainer videos — to name a few…How to Maximize All ThreeImage via Shutterstock.So, if these are the three tenets of your video project decision-making rubric, your goal as a video professional is to find ways to maximize all three.1) Be upfront with potential clients about which tenets are lacking in a project.When considering projects and talking with clients, I’ve found it helpful to be upfront about what I’m good at, what I’d like to do, and what I expect as fair pay. If they’re asking for work that doesn’t satisfy all three tenets, let them know and give them options. There are very rare instances when clients offer perfect projects off-the-bat. It usually takes communication and negotiation to find the sweet spot.2) Fill in the gaps yourself.If there are no ways to account for lacking tenets, be proactive and find ways to do it yourself. If you know you’ll be doing a bunch of profitable but boring work for several weeks, find fun passion projects to work on during the weekend. Maybe volunteer your time for a nonprofit to try a new technique you’re excited to use.If you’re only working fun projects that aren’t paying the bills, you may need to buck up and take on some profitable work to build up your brand for more prestigious work.3) Don’t take on projects that sap your ability to balance the three.At the end of the day, if you aren’t finding that balance of passion, prestige, and profit, your work is going to suffer, and your career can become untenable. It’s up to you to understand your video project decision rubric and what’s best for your career.For more tips about navigating the world of freelance video production and editing, check out the following resources.Advice on Finding Corporate Video Clients3 Tips for Pitching a Corporate VideoHow to Handle Negative Feedback From Clients Tips for Successful Video and Film Freelancinglast_img read more
