Butchershop Creative and Filmmaker Robbie Stauder Launch New Website: Inside The Whale -- Short Films That Celebrate Passionate Individuals and the Beauty of Possibility

SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 12/18/12 -- Inside The Whale (http://insidethewhale.tv) is a collaboration film project between San Francisco creative house, Butchershop Creative (http://butchershopcreative.com) and New York filmmaker Robbie Stauder (http://robbiestauder.com). As the first of many chapters to come, Inside The Whale is proud to announce the release of Chapter One, The True Originals, a 12 part series celebrating individuals in pursuit of their dreams.

Months of research and a 6000 mile journey across the Northwest culminated in 12 distinct stories ranging from a conversation with the world's oldest man to a couple's quest for something wild in their search for the elusive Bigfoot. Butchershop's Creative Director, Trevor Hubbard says, "We try to find stories no matter how small the dream, the person's dedication and love is undeniably intoxicating, and therefore, tremendously inspiring."

Inside The Whale's website will host chapters and episodes, building a community of supporters. The project allows brands to collaborate by supporting a Chapter that represents their personality. Hubbard says, "It's important for brands to have guts to associate themselves with wonderfully different content these days. Brands need to be like people; what they act like, what they support and who they hang out with all say a tremendous amount about them." The True Originals, The first chapter of Inside The Whale is supported by Black Star Beer (http://blackstarbeer.com). Robbie Stauder, project Director finishes, "Black Star Beer is one of those brands that truly understands the importance of associating itself with great stories and people."

Inside The Whale will release one episode of True Originals every other week. This week's episode -- The Haunted House -- captures a woman looking after her favorite place: a haunted hotel. Previously released episodes include "Last Cowboy," a story about a father that uses the values learned as a working cowboy to raise and provide for his family and "Respect Your Elders," about a woman who recycles discarded 1500 year old redwood stumps off the forest floors.

Interested people can follow the project on the website http://insidethewhale.tv, or on Twitter @itwfilms, Instagram @itwfilms, Vimeo @insidethewhale and Facebook @insidethewhaletv.

This is not a scalable process given the increase in the number of alerts with the accelerating growth in data volume and user base. Organizations are increasingly leveraging machine learning to monitor only those data elements that are sensitive and critical, autonomously establish monitoring policies, and to detect...

The Jevons Paradox suggests that when technological advances increase efficiency of a resource, it results in an overall increase in consumption. Writing on the increased use of coal as a result of technological improvements, 19th-century economist William Stanley Jevons found that these improvements led to the development of new ways to utilize coal. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Mark Thiele, Chief Strategy Officer for Apcera, compared the Jevons Paradox to modern-day enterprise IT, examin...
IoT solutions exploit operational data generated by Internet-connected smart “things” for the purpose of gaining operational insight and producing “better outcomes” (for example, create new business models, eliminate unscheduled maintenance, etc.). The explosive proliferation of IoT solutions will result in an exponential growth in the volume of IoT data, precipitating significant Information Governance issues: who owns the IoT data, what are the rights/duties of IoT solutions adopters towards t...

Organizations planning enterprise data center consolidation and modernization projects are faced with a challenging, costly reality. Requirements to deploy modern, cloud-native applications simultaneously with traditional client/server applications are almost impossible to achieve with hardware-centric enterprise infrastructure.

Digital Transformation is much more than a buzzword. The radical shift to digital mechanisms for almost every process is evident across all industries and verticals. This is often especially true in financial services, where the legacy environment is many times unable to keep up with the rapidly shifting demands of the consumer. The constant pressure to provide complete, omnichannel delivery of customer-facing solutions to meet both regulatory and customer demands is putting enormous pressure on...

More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smart...
