Crowdfunding and building: we build the house all together

BY ALEXANDER MEDVEDEV
IN CHELYABINSK

Let's club together to build a house?  Actually this phrase is the idea of Chelyabinsk project “The Ants”. The authors have come up with a scheme to invest in construction through Crowdfunding. How does this work? How to make the building process as clear as possible? And where is planned the first building, which can be observed online? Alexander Medvedev, one of project’s authors, gave the answers on these issues in the course of Pecha Kucha.

How to FAKE it in Hollywood

BY BRAD GORMAN
@ VOL 3 ON NOV 12, 2015

"I packed up everything I owned into my little red Chrysler LeBaron convertible, (I know, right, gayest car ever, and this was before I came out, which is a whole other PechaKucha), and I drove 2000 miles from Michigan to Los Angeles, to follow my dreams."

Brad Gorman wasn't always living a tranquil life in Benton Harbor, MI as Communications & Media Manager for Whirlpool Corporation. Nope, not always. In his twenties he gave it a "go" out in Hollywood where he learned a thing or two about the industry, rejection, persistence and how to "FAKE IT". In How to FAKE it in Hollywood from PechaKucha Night St. Joseph Vol. 3, Brad shares his Hollywood dream of making it big. 

This was "PechaKucha of the Day" on Thursday, December 31st, 2015.
