When it comes to communicating a brand message to your audience, Hollywood’s big, brash, and real attitude will take your message much farther than international cinema’s challenging, understated, and experimental tone.
At the end of Nostalghia by Andrei Tarkovsky, one of Russia’s great film makers, a man repeatedly tries to carry a candle that he lit from one side of a church courtyard to the other. The scene lasts 9 minutes. With no cuts. In Michelangelo Antonioni’s The Passenger, the climactic scene is a slow 6-minute zoom out of a hotel window, where people move in and out of the frame. 6 minutes. One window.
Shopping online is not the same experience for all of us, as we don’t all look for the same type of products and some of us shop internationally while some only look for local shops. In my case, I enjoy looking for last minute offers and season sales, but I am not very adventurous! I have seen a lot of “this is what I bought and this is what I got” videos online to keep my online shopping within the boundaries of safe and known online stores. Even being careful I’ve had some bad experiences; nothing too unexpected, such as the wrong size or the color of the picture looks nothing like the product I received, but otherwise, my experience as an online buyer has been on the good and happy side.

Some Eastern schools of thought maintain that the present and the future are the same—if we take this to heart, how should it affect our methods for developing a strategic plan for our business? Should businesses and Marketing Companies in Orange County Plan for what makes sense at the moment, or plan for some abstract future?
It is very exciting to work with online marketing; everybody wants a piece of the online action, and those small entrepreneurs that had no money for T.V. or radio ads are now able to promote their products and services with an amazing result in some cases. Almost every person you know has a smartphone, and while years ago we could only watch television after work, or listen to the radio while we were driving, now we are connected with the whole world almost 24/7. In some cases, we even have to actively restrict ourselves from getting online that much! Even my grandmother has shared a link online and used video conferences to keep in touch with distant relatives.
