November Luncheon: Moving People with Moving Images with Filmmaker Zia Anger

Thursday, November 1, 2018 at 11:30am - 1:00pm (Past Event)

November 1 · 11:30 am · Halloran Center


Storytelling. It’s at the heart of what we do. And Zia Anger knows a thing or two about storytelling — and how deviating from traditional storytelling can capture and inspire an audience. During this luncheon, held in partnership with Indie Memphis Film Fest, Zia will trace her career, from creating traditional narrative films, to music videos, to interactive performance art. And will weigh the role of a passive viewer versus an active viewer. Check out some of Zia’s short films here!

September Luncheon - Paid Attention with Rosie & Faris Yakob

Thursday, September 20, 2018 at 11:30am - 1:00pm (Past Event)

Faris and Rosie Yakob cull from communication theory, neuroscience, creativity and innovation, media history, branding and emerging technologies to speak to AAF Memphis about Paid Attention: Advertising in an ADD Economy. They are co-founders of the nomadic creative consultancy Genius/Steals.

Attention is the foundational idea of communication and advertising, the top of the mythical funnel. It's the most valuable resource in the world, powering the new giants of culture. But what is it? What do we actually know about it? Faris and Rosie Yakob will explore those questions and more and why attention matters to marketers. They’ll talk about how attention works, how it creates value in a world of creativity, and how to hack that system. They’ll explain why impressions don't always seem to leave one. And how the Internet acts like a live global attention market — and what you need to know as a marketer.
