A warm welcome to our 43rd Tuesday Trifle; the weekly dose of inspiration and variety. We’re jumping on the Titanic bandwagon this week…
Titanic on Facebook
If Jack, Rose and ‘The Iceberg’ had smart-phones, this is what would have happened.
TEAM PWNICORN have created a collection of Facebook statuses following a number of film plots, political figures and a few randoms, like Justin Bieber vs. Jesus. The Romeo and Juliet page made me laugh (‘For never was there a story more emo, than that of Juliet and her Romeo’), but Titanic’s Final Facebook Posts tell the story of James Cameron’s Titanic in a way that is utterly believable, judging by the rubbish I see posted on Facebook every day. I particularly like the idea of ‘The Iceberg’ having its own profile.
Titanic Super 3D Trailer
James Cameron’s Titanic is back in the cinemas in eye-popping 3D. I’m curious to see how he has gone about the 3D conversion, I’d be happy to see just 10mins of highlights of the film just to satisfy my curiosity instead of sitting through the whole film. So to celebrate the re-release of the film, I found this trailer on YouTube for a Super 3D version if James Cameron collaborated with the likes of George Lucas, J.J Abrams and Michael Bay. Enjoy!
Titanic Ad Man Rory Sutherland
Ok, time for another TED talk from someone who you have to admire for his ability to look at marketing-led problems through the lenses of perceived value and behavioural economics, both un-sinkable elements when selling goods and services. With some hilarious examples, Rory is almost frustratingly good at this. He highlights that when we look at problems, we’re obsessed with improving the workings or the reality of something- but why not change the perception?
Further viewing: Rory’s other TED talk “Sweat the small stuff” This is a great follow on from the talk above, explaining the dis-proportionality of thinking when looking at big problems, particularly when big budgets are at work.
