2016 show-reel: what I do, and how I do it (3 entertaining minutes:)

Here is my brand-new film on exponential change and digital transformation, produced in association with Accenture UK
Technology vs Humanity: a short film on what I believe is the #1 topic of the next decade - how will we stay human in this coming machine age?
Redefining the relationship of man and machine: a very unique 28-minute video contemplation
I am about to officially announce an exciting new project, ‘The Futures Agency Studios’ (TFA Studios). I am teaming with my art director and film producer Jean Francois Cardella and with my script writer James McCabe to create cutting-edge 'future stories’ for our clients. 
Here is how we put it:  “As we enter the age of mobile video, the rapid rise of visualization means every organization on the planet must now become its own television channel or network, its own film production company. Gerd Leonhard’s Futures Agency is gearing up to be the bespoke film maker for executive visions and strategies, capable of producing impactful shorter films, a full feature-length movie or to create a multi-year running episodic web series crafted to your future”
And finally, here is my most important learning for this week:  “The future masters of technology will have to be light-hearted and intelligent. The machine easily masters the grim and the dumb” (Marshall McLuhan)
Take care and see you next week!
