The GOAB Concept – Integrating TV Into Your Digital Ecosystem

Posted in film, ideas, Media by aldorf on April 19, 2011

Interesting to see how we define and describe concepts in times of merging technology. Syzygy says it’s a new TV experience concept.

Your TV becomes part of the already existing ecosystem of mobile digital tools and is one of many media surfaces. An opportunity to create more interactive content and keeping the fixed mounted screen in your living room on and alive. Reminds me of another great example by BERG, London.

How Trends & Creativity Become Contagious

Posted in film, ideas by aldorf on November 9, 2010

Not an entire new thought but absolutely relevant these days and well-done executed.

INFLUENCERS is a short documentary that explores what it means to be an influencer and how trends and creativity become contagious today in music, fashion and entertainment.
The film attempts to understand the essence of influence, what makes a person influential without taking a statistical or metric approach.
Written and Directed by Paul Rojanathara and Davis Johnson, the film is a Polaroid snapshot of New York influential creatives (advertising, design, fashion and entertainment) who are shaping today’s pop culture.
“Influencers” belongs to the new generation of short films, webdocs, which combine the documentary style and the online experience. Read more here.
