Creativity is a double-edged sword. The more ideas we have, the less likely we are to stay loyal to one. So the creative mind ends up jumping from idea to idea, and none of them happen. There is no correlation between how great an idea is and the likelihood of it happening.

How Branding and Transparency Help charity: water Stand Out
Scott Harrison from charity: water stopped by the new 37signals office to speak to the team about the unconventional ways that charity: water stands out from other charities through branding and transparency.

Another key to CW’s success is that 100% of donations are used for direct water project costs. (A group of private donors, foundations and sponsors help pay for the everyday costs of running the organization.) CW even pays for the paypal and credit card transaction fees when people donate online so each penny goes straight to actually building a well.

“Inception” Sound for Film

This 6 minute profile of the sound production for the movie Inception is beyond fascinating.  It’s easy to watch a movie and appreciate the visual production, but the rich sound that makes any movie is easily overlooked.  The techniques used for capturing and layering audio for full impact of gun shots and dream-state explosions are incredible.

If you enjoyed this sound profile check out SoundWorks Collection similar profiles for SALT, Toy Story 3, Watchmen, Avatar, Where the Wild Things Are, and many others.
