The Gentleman Shaver

Posted by    |    January 17th, 2012 at 11:14 am

Is it the fact that there is a beautiful woman in a bra that draws the male Dallas viewer into this work by one of our favorites, Ben Briand?  Classy humor, as his beautiful partner frustrates his ability to shave.  Should any man share a bathroom with his partner anyway?

A woman rises from her bed in the middle of the night. As she crosses the city, we see other sleepwalkers congregating to one place and time. There they share a beautiful moment.

RSA Animate – Drive: The surprising truth about what motivates us

Posted by    |    January 14th, 2012 at 12:48 pm

This RSAnimate was adapted from Dan Pink’s talk at the RSA.  This speech illustrates the hidden truths behind what really motivates us at home and in the workplace.

We gleaned this from the work, “We already know that people don’t all learn the same ways. It should be no surprise that different people are motivated in different ways. The presentation draws conclusions about AGGREGATE performance. I guarantee you that there are many people who are profoundly motivated by compensation. Apparently just not as many as are rewarded by other things. Things that motivate you at 22 and single are different than things that motivate you at 30 with a family.”

Allure of Love: Directed by Jenny McCarthey

This short film attempts to take a tired subject and use Royal Carribean’s activities to stage an “experience short film”.  As one commentator said, “This is a film, basically disguised as an advert. The storyline is rubbish, and I love it how you basically have shots in every part of the ship! It’s just one MASSIVE commercial for the ship. Not buying it”.  Convicted.  Another said, “super funny! love how all the cool things you can do on Royal Caribbean were incorporated into the story.”

So inquiring minds in Dallas want to know why Jenny McCarthy directed and starred in a Royal Caribbean movie: “The Allure of Love” which was shot on the  ship, Allure of the Seas!  Because she was paid well to do it, thats why.  The movie is an attempt at a sexy romantic comedy where two friends hatch the perfect plan to bring a couple back together, but things go awry when the former lovers — at first unaware that they’re on the same ship — start a picture posting battle to prove they are over each other.

The cast includes Scott Elrod, Coutrney Henggeler & Charles Malik Whitfield.
