Evaluating Projects "A story should be remembered for its soul, not the bells and whistles." Bernajean Porter If you don’t have a good or powerful story, script, and storyboard, then there will never be enough decorating that technology can do to cover it up. On the other hand, demonstrating exemplar craftsmanship with mixing the technical elements in artful ways to unfold your story creates compelling, insightful, original and memorable pieces of communication. The richness of a good story can be diluted when technical elements are not artfully developed, over used, distracting, or just plain annoying. Google RO.ME › North Kingdom In the simplest of terms explaining it – “3 Dreams of Black” is an interactive music video developed in WebGL and optimized for Chrome to showcase its possibilities; written and directed by Chris Milk; based on the song “Black” from Danger Mouse and Daniele Luppi’s ROME album; an album that somewhat is a soundtrack to a movie that doesn’t exist. The music serves to express a story that takes place in a post-apocalyptic landscape where the main characters are played through the voices of Norah Jones and Jack White. More specifically, “3 Dreams of Black” is Norah’s lucid dream where users can partake and gain control of her characters experience.

'I read it to Diana's coffin and heard a whisper' August 31 1997 started for me long before dawn. News of Diana's crash was followed by mounting concern, and then confirmation that reports of a broken leg and mild head wounds had been wildly optimistic: the girl I had grown up with, and known for all of my life, had been pursued into a tunnel in Paris, and had been killed. That day of family devastation and worldwide shock ended for me with a flight from Cape Town to London, an overnight journey spent with a box of tissues in one hand, and my address book in the other: if grief was to deprive me of sleep, then I was determined to befuddle the pain by tackling distracting practicalities. One of the questions I set myself was: who should give Diana's eulogy? I went slowly from A to Z, but drew a blank. Arriving in England, I called my mother: "It's got to be me, hasn't it?"

The Most Brilliantly Pointless Street Flyers The hand-posted flyer is perhaps the cheapest way to spread the word about lost dogs, found cats, and creepy looking men offering low-cost guitar lessons. But most of the time, those flyers serve as nothing more than reading material for people waiting to get into a bathroom or on a bus. The flyers collected here acknowledge this reality, and they respond by trying to do nothing more than entertain whatever pair of eyes happen to be aimed in their direction. You now have no excuse for wasting all your time on the Internet when it's perfectly clear you could be wasting paper out in the real world.

StoryKeepers - iPad StoryTelling APPS StoryTelling continues to gain popularity as an educational experience creating MORE "sticking power" for concepts a la brain science as well as developing essential communication skills for a media-rich world vying for attention.

A Rainbow Is A Song: The Wild, Curious & Wonderful World of Synesthesia What's the Big Idea? On a late winter day in 1922, the sound of a gun shot resounded with a loud boom in the hills surrounding the house of three-year-old Edgar Curtis. The sound itself wasn't out of the ordinary, since the Curtises lived near a firing range. What was extraordinary was the question the boy turned to ask his mother: "What is that big, black noise?" A few days later, when his mother was putting him to bed, Edgar heard the chirping of a shrill cricket and demanded, "What is that little white noise?" For Edgar, low, rhythmic notes were dark in color.
