The Chase

There’s always something very primal about the weather. Especially extremes of weather. It’s one of those rare moments the environment invades your life and makes you realise you’re part of other systems, which aren’t artificial. Just for a moment. I think, watching videos like this, it also reminds me of being young again, when I would constantly mesmerised by storm footage. I even liked that ridiculous Twister film at the time.

Okay, so nothing about the creatives necessarily – but here’s their corporate strategy chart from 1957, as featured in the Harvard Business Review. The mandate was to “fix animation at Disney”, and their focus was on franchises and brands. I think we can safely say it worked. Wonder if the same would work in publishing? I guess everything has to be cross-media these days to really work.

Drone Aviary

“The Drone Aviary reveals fleeting glimpses of the city from the perspective of drones. It explores a world where the ‘network’ begins to gain physical autonomy. Drones become protagonists, moving through the city, making decisions about the world and influencing our lives in often opaque yet profound ways.”
