In these shifting sands lies an extraordinary business opportunity: you canbecome a trusted source of value in an otherwise meaningless chaos of digital noise.
The concept of “Curation” has rapidly moved from museums to mainstream media. As the sheer volume of Tweets, Likes
, Blogs, , YouTube videos, and emails overwhelm the web, publishers and brands are increasingly being asked to provide a human face to content organization and editorial curation. With the right framework, curation can be a powerful tool to help editorial meet new challenges.
7 DAYS IN SEPTEMBER
“Powerful and Moving…with an undercurrent of hope.”A.O. Scott, The New York Times
In the moments after 9/11 people ran for shelter in lower Manhattan. But a handful of New Yorkers turned to face the towers. In their hands, digital video cameras captured sounds and images few could ever have imagined. Then, in the days that followed, cameras continued to document the drama, passions, anger and fear as New York came to terms with life under a plume of smoke and ash.
The film is seen through the eyes of a postal worker, a college professor, a middle-school student, a Muslim-American Woman and a firefighter’s wife. Twenty-seven real New Yorkers who captured what they experienced and told their stories.
It is a film not just about the destruction of the towers, but what happened afterward, the rollercoaster of shock, anger, passion and love that took the city to the brink of disaster — and back.
Director Steven Rosenbaum made a name for himself by empowering real people to tell stories through their own eyes. His series MTV UNfiltered had ushered in the era of User-Generated Video. And “7 Days” reflects his commitment to the voice of the story and their personal narratives.
