Afterevents; a documentary series about the impact of events.

Afterevents

Inspired by the recent Olympics in Sochi and its consequences I thought of Afterevents, a documentary series about the true impact of events.

Every event has a lot of organising in itself. In this documentary series, it follows a whole region and its people in the months towards and after the actual event. I can’t get the idea out of my head that most effort is done upfront while only little attention is spent on the post era of an event. In this documentary series, a discours is being told about the region and its inhabitants (locals) where the event takes place. Ranging from political gatherings and protest marches, over music and sex festivals to large scale sportsevents, this documentary series tells their story and how they deal with the consequences of the event. Local political, economic and social story lines cross each other. The stress and expectations to make the event run smoothly versus the harsh reality of what happens after the event. Is it a hangover or a new dynamic for the region and its people? What with the organisers and temporary infrastructure? And so much more.

Telenet TV remote control app.

Telenet hotspot

I bought myself a A/V receiver of Marantz. It comes with a free but great remote control app on my iphone. I immediately fell in love with it. It’s just awesome. That’s why I was wondering why I don’t have that for my digital TV setupbox. I want it, I need it. I’m now struggling with volume buttons on two remote controls, I cannot access the video-on-demand catalogue, my router is old so I cannot use Telenet hotspots … The more I think about it, the more I found the experience they offer me is just too little. It’s not just about providing a cable, Telenet. It’s about disclosing content the way people consume TV. And that’s not only through cable and a TV set, or via smartphone or tablet in a Yelo app, but in the mix of all those… Making content easier to consume, that’s your mission, Telenet. It’s more than just marketing. So keep on doing so.

Thanks.

How legends are created.

League of Legends

A documentary series in which the documentary maker tells how legends are created. He reveals the real story of how communication, publications, facts,… are all brought together and how storytelling creates legends. Since media exists, legends are created. Whether these are historical sites that get too much honour in comparison with others, communication and the way it enforces itself is a weird phenomenon. Every analysed legend gives some powerful insights that can be reused for marketing purposes. Also the discrepancy between what people believe that happened and what really happened is possible a way to visualise the documentary storytelling… A legend in the making…

Possible topics:

  • Mozart
  • Ché
  • Stonehenge
  • Yeti
  • Lam Gods

HouseHoldStop: The 1stopshop for all your household services. #oipd

one stop shop

The idea is e-commerce but with/for services. 1stopshop helps you in managing your contracts with (your) preferred suppliers for everything. In fact, it’s a broker service where they audit your invoices and make recommendations (once a year) so you can benefit from changed market situations without monitoring all these different areas.
To start with, you can sign up for the usual suspects of your home:

  • Electricity
  • Gas
  • Water
  • Internet
  • Telecom
  • TV

After an initial intake (250 euro?), for just 1 euro per month per invoice (supplier) you outsource to 1stopshop, you can save a multitude of the amount with just saying yes to the rational recommendations we make. 1stopshop does the market research, the negotiations… All the hassle in finding the best deals is over. 1stopshop does it better you’ll ever can.

In addition to clear monetary benefits, whenever there is trouble with a supplier, 1stopshop will mediate and help you out with a smile. Don’t waste time trying to do it yourself and get frustrated, Just log into their portal, tell them, sit back and relax. Let them take care of it. They’ll contact you when, using the means you like, when the air has been cleared.

The 1stopshop portal works a bit like Coolblue where you have 1 account that can access all the contracts per service store in which new propositions by suppliers are reported about, analysed and recommended to user profiles. You can also keep track of all these services in one handy account.

Managing your household services has never been more convenient. With HouseHoldShop you can trust making the right decisions.

It’s no coincidence that @kodel also wrote a blogpost about this with pretty much the same thinking.
