  27. 27. The HOPE.ACT.CHANGE. Website (launched feb 2008) Inspired by Barack Obama's vision of change and collective action, LBi was brought into this ground- breaking project by <> , musician, producer and lead singer of 'Black Eyed Peas', and Jesse Dylan and Mike Jurkovac, the filmmakers behind the video. As the artist and filmmakers were conceiving and creating the "Yes We Can" song and video - which went on to over 20 million views on the web - they challenged LBi to build a website that would bring people into the effort to express their support of change in America. Building Believable Brands
  28. 28. The HOPE.ACT.CHANGE. website We took our experience with Social Media and applied it to develop an innovative and visually stunning web site that gives life to community action and inspiration. Integrating user-generated content into the fabric of the "Yes We Can" music video, LBi created an interactive experience that visualizes the way the individual can bring about change and show their support for Barack Obama.

  29. 29. The HOPE.ACT.CHANGE. website By uploading their photos and videos to the site, or tagging their Flickr photos with "hopeactchange", their content becomes a component of a virtual mosaic that overlays the video playback. Supporters all over America and around the world have become thumbnail pieces of the video, adding their voice to the new HopeActChange movement. They can share their stories of inspiration and connect with other members of the site. We also have featured celebrities, musicians, artists and digital innovators who have contributed their efforts to the site. There are now thousands of members and an active, growing movement that is being evolved daily by the community itself. Building Believable Brands
