The Buddha

The Sonnett Media Group was honored to be asked by award-winning filmmaker David Grubin to help promote his film The Buddha, which premiered on PBS nationwide on April 7, 2010. We first worked with David in 2000 to help create the companion website for his film Napoleon and worked with him again in 2003 for Young Dr. Freud. For The Buddha, we created a dynamic website featuring PBS’s COVE video player, integrated Facebook and Flickr feeds, and a series of compelling essays edited by the Center for Comtemplative Mind in Society.

We also were responsible for creating and maintaining the program’s Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, and Flickr accounts, working closely with David and the PBS staff to grow a substantial fan base for The Buddha prior to broadcast.

The website for The Buddha was honored with the winner of the People’s Voice and Webby Award for in the Religion and Spirituality website category in the 15th Annual Webby Awards.
