futurethink's Tool School Trailer
Running Time of Trailer: 1:10 min
director Will Lamborn
"Tool School is a series of brief, engaging training videos that are unlike those you’ve seen in the past.
You know the ones I’m talking about. Outdated. Bad acting. Boring.
I had the pleasure of watching one of the Tool School videos, called “Kill a Stupid Rule”, which I’ll admit was perfectly timed and well-aligned with my rule-breaking mood. I was instantly intrigued.
When futurethink claimed these videos “disrupt how we learn,” I wasn’t exactly sure what to expect, but the moment I began watching the video, I felt immersed, as though I was a participant in the discussion I was observing. In a very The Office-esque way, I connected with the team and started thinking of the “stupid rules” that I find myself irritated by, yet complying with, at the Day Job."
