How to FAKE it in Hollywood

@ 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.

"Let's get the value of regional Japan out to the world because the world will benefit from it."

In NOW HOW From PKN Tokyo’s recent "Powered by PechaKucha: Tohoku 2020: Building a sustainable Post-3/11 Future"  Adam Fulford uses the word NowHow as a rough translation of "ichigo ichie," a Japanese tea ceremony concept that focuses attention on the unique value of each encounter. "Now" is the only time available to us to take action, and so it would seem appropriate to try to make the best possible use of that opportunity. Adam uses his take on traditional East Asian and Japanese culture to design a "now" whose aim is to improve the survival potential of the amazingly diverse communities to be found, on the brink of collapse, in regional Japan. For his NowHow and Walkshop activities, he brings together international teams whose task is to unearth buried treasure -- while also experiencing the power of "deep Japan" to mend a broken heart. 

This was "PechaKucha of the Day" on Monday, March 15th, 2016.

Posters There's only one new addition to the Tumblr blog today, and it takes the form of the poster you see above, for next month's PKN Springfield, IL Vol. 8. Photos Today we'll point you to this Flickr photoset from last week's PKN Kingston Vol. 3 (pictured above), and what a night it was. "Our heads are still spinning from the event," says PKN Kingston organizer David Cuthbert. "It went really, really well, and we had our largest event to date, over 200+ (totally unplanned)." We'll share one more photo today, this one in a series that our PKN Tokyo photographer Michael Holmes has been taking for our event flyers (see the first one here). A lovely hovering photo taken near our venue, SuperDeluxe, just before the start of last month's PKN Tokyo Vol. 93. Calendar Here's what you can expect in terms of PechaKucha action this weekend.

Materials Innovation through Failure

Making ... allows me to invent something, mock it up, and fail. And then improve it.  Mike Moore of Tres Bird Workshop, talks about his approach to architecture and design through making and inventing: a process that allows him to fail and continually improve on his work. In "Materials Innovation through Failure" from PKN Denver Vol. 19, he shows this process in action through his past and recent projects and how it has transfromed his work into innovative and environmentally conscious architectural design.

Empowering Street Artists, Activating Citizens

Many think of vandalism and graffiti when they hear the words "street art"... But people like Mario Rueda see the city in a very different light. In "Empowering Street Artists, Activating Citizens" from PechaKucha Urban Innovation Month, we learn that public spaces are taken over by advertisements and corporations, but the artists, performers, and musicians who share their creativity and seek to delight fellow citizens are treated like criminals. Book a Street Artist is a platform which seeks to empower artists, and give back the city to citizens.
