Rocky Spirit - New Digital Advertising Website Development

Rocky Spirit Book is a website which was created to promote Felice Cantatore’s book Rocky Spirit: The Rocky Balboa connection to Success. Felice Cantatore, a native New Yorker and an Italian American, has more than two decades of media experience in the radio and newspaper industries.

Cantatore penned a 2006 cover story for the Long Island Press newspaper titled “On the Set of Rocky Balboa,” which earned him a Press Club of Long Island (PCLI) First-Place journalism award for Best Arts Story. The cover story outlined a first person recount of his experience as a movie extra on location at the filming of the motion picture Rocky Balboa in Las Vegas during December of 2005. This experience was only a part of the many Rocky connections leading to a pinnacle moment in the author’s life that culminated in the boxing ring as an underdog fighter himself.

Rocky Spirit, the Rocky Balboa Connection to Success has been called “A Masterpiece” and “A Wonderful Street Prose” by Rocky co-star Burt Young. The acclaimed actor also personally penned this quote on a place mat during a one-on-one luncheon with Felice. The author’s vision is an inspirational story that will motivate the human spirit to strive for your own personal success.

Rocky Spirit Book was originally launched in the fall of 2011 and was created with Photoshop and Dreamweaver. Custom jQuery galleries were added to the appropriate pages to reflect certain sections of the book, as well as the life of Felice and how the concept of Rocky has been a major influence on his life. Figuring out the color scheme was easy since the original color themes of the original Rocky movies has always been black and yellow.
