It's a amazing how much a relatively simple technique (shooting ultra-slow-motion from a moving train) looks like a sophisticated special effect.  It works especially well as the majority of people waiting for the train are relatively still - you can catch the odd commuter moving v-e-r-y slowly here and there mostly in the background.  So slow you can see the fluorescent lights cycling (120 Hz, if they're the same in Japan as here...).  Very neat.

This is an utterly fascinating piece on content, storytelling, and the limitations of online video. Not just a critique, but a proposal.
So four months ago, I moved to Paris. The unexpected side-effect of living in a country where you can't speak the language is that you spend a lot of time feeling stupid. Even a simple trip to the boulangerie can become a humiliating experience if someone speaks to you just a little too quickly.

Lead With the Message, Not the Format
Format matters. As a record collector and content strategist, I say that with passion. But it's not the most important concern. Content creators of the universe, please heed this advice: Lead with the message, not the format. Why you are creating content in...
