A New Approach to Making Films That Matter

A New Approach to Making Films That Matter | Sizzlin' News | Scoop.it

The number of documentary films being produced has exploded over the last 20 years. The Internet Movie Database shows an exponential increase, listing 1,860 documentary titles for 1991 and 16,886 for 2011. But while the audience for documentary film has dramatically expanded, competition within the marketplace of ideas has kept pace. Funding for documentaries has grown at less than half the rate of production, while funders, concerned with the issues, want to understand their investment’s social impact in more concrete terms.

Sharla Shults's insight:

"Making filmes that MATTER," what a novel idea! Now that is sizzlin' for me considering I am subscribed to 250 channels on Dish Network but cannot find anything decent to watch other than The History Channel, The Discovery Channel and The Military Channel. Those ARE the channels that matter!

Twelve Surprisingly Cool Facts About Air-Conditioning | Sizzlin' News | Scoop.it

"You probably don’t ever think much about it. It’s just sort of there, humming quietly in the background, like the Internet or The Price Is Right. You may even take it for granted. But in the dog days of summer, as soon as the mercury climbs a speck above ninety degrees, air-conditioning becomes the most important thing in the world."

Sharla Shults's insight:

One of the most popular ways to get ready for a new year, especially in any kind of niche market, like social media, is to make predictions about what the next year might hold.

Can Compassion Be Taught?

Can Compassion Be Taught? | Sizzlin' News | Scoop.it
While many people believe that kids these days are lazy and self-obsessed, there is reason to believe that they are becoming increasingly empathetic and altruistic.
Sharla Shults's insight:

Not only should it be taught but also practiced. What a delight if our youth would demonstrate moment-by-moment they care and institute daily practices of respect!

Softwalks: Turning Scaffolding into Pop-up Parks

Softwalks: Turning Scaffolding into Pop-up Parks | Sizzlin' News | Scoop.it

Softwalks seeks to improve the pedestrian experience in New York City. Rudimentary scaffolding erected in long tunnels occupies almost 1.5% of the sidewalks in New York City. These temporary structures are called sidewalk sheds, protecting pedestrians from overhead dangers at construction sites and from aging facades. Softwalks will open up an opportunity to re-imagine the function of sidewalk sheds in a design-build competition, enabling artists and designers to innovate within a space everyone experiences on a daily basis. Our goal is to facilitate immediate solutions and functional alternatives to a blight within the city.

Sharla Shults's insight:

Softwalks is an initiative dedicated to improving the pedestrian experience in New York City. With the sidewalks of New York being occupied by scaffolding, over 6,000 sheds cover the city’s streets at any given point in time.

Each week Joshua Fruhlinger contributes This is the Modem World, a column dedicated to exploring the culture of consumer technology.
Sharla Shults's insight:

A befitting article since just a short while ago lists were the hot topic as we considered possible resolutions. Whether a list of resolutions for a new year, a grocery list or product ratings, it is possible for the #1 position to actually be much farther down the line and the one at the bottom be completely misplaced.
