Trailer of the day. Room 237 - Homage to Stanley Kubrick.

Room 237: trailer from Rodney Ascher on Vimeo.

ROOM 237 is a subjective documentary that explores the theories and potentially hidden meanings surrounding Stanley Kubrick’s “The Shining”. In late 2012, I worked with the filmmakers to help craft a trailer that captured the spirit of their film.

Short film of the day. IBM - Solutions for An Aging Population.


In Bolzano, Italy, almost a quarter of the population is over the age of 65. In fact, Italy, along with Japan, has one of the oldest populations in the world. As a result, Bolzano currently spends close to half of their social services budget on services for the elderly. This includes assisted living facilities where they receive around the clock care. But assisted living facilities can cost a city and the people who stay there vast amounts of money that, within these economic conditions, municipalities and families just don't have. The solution: keep them in their homes where they are comfortable. IBM's Smarter Cities team partnered with the city to outfit a small group of elderly residents' homes with sensors which would in turn report data back to a central database closely monitored by the city. From there, the city could dispatch a care worker to visit the home. By allowing Bolzano to keep the number of their staff members the same, the program stabilizes the city's costs while simultaneously allowing it to care for its growing elderly population.
