Chromakey and knowledge work

I came across the following YouTube video the other day while checking out Boing Boing (one of my favorite sources of interesting and provocative stuff).

Fascinating in its own right, but I keep coming back to it and thinking what it also has to say about the world we work in. Some thoughts:

  • Don’t let the scenery distract you from the action
  • Focus on a powerful story to lead your audience’s attention where you want it to go
  • Anchor your stories in people and their interaction

What do you think?

  1. i think you are right that when all of story telling can be simulated — in an entirely plastic reality, the best way to get the audience to stay with you is to tell the story of people. it has always been true.

    “Arms, and the man I sing, who, forc’d by fate,
    An haughty Juno’s unrelenting hate,
    Expell’d and exil’d, left the Trojan shore…”

    The opening lines of The Aeneid by Virgil
