    This is a recording of a presentation I gave on 4/19/11 as part of the Break The Box series at Frank Lloyd Wright's Unity Temple in Oak Park, IL. http://www.utrf.org/break_the_box.html From the program notes: What do homemade music videos by OK Go, live Twitter updates about Egypt, and industrial films from the 1950s have in common? They all have a high degree of "process value": a willingness to expose the creative act itself and embed it, front and center, in the finished product. And they generate intense engagement on the web -- often much more than their big budgeted, high-production-value counterparts. Wired and Fast Company writer and filmmaker Pavlus looks at why that is -- and how to put it to use.
