Roy Oppenheim's Video Pick of the Week
My associate, Geoff Sherman, received from a friend a great online video describing how we got into this foreclosure/ financial crisis in a short cartoon. The producer, Jonathan Jarvis, prepared this video as part of his graduate thesis in the Media Design Program at the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, California. The key here is, he took a really complex issue and by using show-and-tell tools, was able to dissect the issue into tiny morsels of digestible information. It is literally one of the best explanations I have seen on the whole foreclosure/credit crisis. It’s a step-by-step description of how the way mortgages were handled lead up to the foreclosure crisis that America is dealing with now. I hope you will watch it.
