A Great Resource for Non-Profits to Steal
We love ourselves some Tiffany Shlain. The Webby Awards founder and creator of “cloud filmmaking” — in which she produces “open source” films free for use by organisations — has just launched “Brain Power”.
Accompanied by a TED Book, the 10-minute film is meant to help childhood development-related non-profits solicit donations or aid. It draws from research from Harvard’s Center on the Developing Child and the University of Washington’s I-LABS, juxtaposing the needs of a child’s developing brain to the ever-evolving Internet.
Part of her Let It Ripple series, the film has a customisable ending that organisations can change based on what they want or need. Want the film, but not sure how to bend it to your will? No worries, Shlain’s Moxie Institute will help you perfect your message. Get in touch! It isn’t every day that a great resource comes strings-free.
Also, if you haven’t already, watch this. It’ll change the way you perceive connectivity in your life, and ever after you’ll be chasing Shlain’s work like horses feen for sugar cubes.
