The film The Voice of Values. The Strength of Brands. addresses the issue of how consumers' choices are affected by the values brands are perceived to uphold. Brands, and the corporations they represent, have power, and people's purchase decisions are influenced by the way corporations use their power. Gaining the trust of consumers has become an important aspect of marketing for big businesses. This film presents a number of facts and anecdotes related to this new reality. For instance, "70% of women said they would avoid buying products and services from companies that were perceived to be irresponsible." 

With price and quality being equal, most consumers are willing to switch brands if the brands are associated with what consumers believe to be a worthwhile cause, or conversely, if brands are linked with an undesirable practice. The film done for Levi's presents a new playing field, where businesses compete to present themselves in the most favorable way.


The Lytro camera lets you create living pictures that you can endlessly refocus after you take them. Share your pictures online, and your friends can instantly refocus them just like you do. Your pictures are about to surprise you--and everyone else.

The Lytro camera lets you capture and share what you see in a whole new way. It's the first consumer camera that records the entire light field--all the rays of light traveling in every direction through a scene--instead of a flat 2D image. And that changes everything.

Lytor's newest light field capability, Perspective Shift, allows you to interactively change your point of view in a picture, after you've taken the picture. On a computer or mobile device, you can shift the living picture in any direction; left, right, up, down and all around.
