“Engage” is the latest project to come out of Moxie Institute’s Let It Ripple series, which aims to provide free media for inspiring organizations and, most importantly, connect people and ideas throughout the world.
Headed by Webby Awards founder Tiffany Shlain, these collaborative efforts use a new form of filmmaking, dubbed “cloud filmmaking,” to bring life to the powerful concepts proposed in Shlain’s 2011 documentary, Connected.
“Engage” follows the series’ first short video, “A Declaration of Interdependence,” which has been translated into 65 languages and customized for 100 organizations. Next up is “Brain Power: From Synapses to Hyperlinks,” which joins research on how to develop children’s brains with ideas on how to grow the global brain of the Internet.
How will you engage?
