Our introduction to 1/29 was through the "Behind the Logic" series of videos they did for Pandora. You can watch them on the 1/29 Explainers home page. We were impressed with the entertaining creative way they explain the logic that connects the music that plays via Pandora.  Here's an example: 1/29... Continue Reading

If there is one prediction I have for 2009, it will be that our world will become more complex.  We will all be confronted with new products, services, ideas and concepts that will confuse the majority of us.  And this adds to what confused us in 2008 and years before. We're convinced that the rise of all this complexity is creating new demand for new kinds of services. Individuals and organizations will find business models in helping people deal with the complexity. The biggest opportunity... Continue Reading

Marshall at ReadWriteWeb, posted a story today about Common Craft that was actually published a few months back, but has been reposted at a "redux."  It's one of my favorite bits of press and called "How Common Craft Stopped Doing Client Work, in Plain English."  I don't know of any other blog post that tells our story better. Since the original story was posted in September, we've created a resource that helps organizations in need of custom videos find producers who can help.  It's called... Continue Reading

Since that time, we've been working on a project to bring this idea to life.  It's called the Common Craft Explainer... Continue Reading

We see an opportunity for a win-win.  Every day, we receive multiple emails from organizations that are looking for custom explanatory videos.  As we've changed our focus away from making custom videos, we can't help. Until recently, we didn't know where to point these prospects.  Thankfully, we're starting to see producers who are developing a specialty in producing explanatory videos - and we're looking for more. The opportunity we see is to create a way, through our website, to help... Continue Reading
