This latest Nutshell grew out of our long, and really fantastic relationship with Utah Education Network in Salt Lake City. We helped them tell a compelling story about the soon-to-be released UtahFutures.org site. It’s a place for Utahns (yes, that’s spelled right) of all ages to prepare for and get into college, find a job, or launch a new career. Basically, it’s about helping people build a bright future for themselves, and we’re really proud to be a part of that.

We were honored when Envictus asked us to help them explain their online learning software, Navigation 101. The software teaches kids the basics of college and career readiness, skills that aren’t often taught as a discipline of study in schools. With Navigation 101, school systems can quickly and easily set up a complete course of study for middle- and high-schoolers that puts them on the road to a brighter future.

During the summertime, the residents of Planet Nutshell take some time off to recharge their spirits.
But there’s lots more explaining to do, so we’re back at it.
While we were away, Google launched a new version of Google Wallet with our Nutshell displayed front and center in the app.
As part of the launch, we produced a shorter, 40-second version of our original Google Wallet Nutshell.

If you’re reading this post, you probably already understand the power of Web video to delight people, to move them to action, to make a choice, to click that “I’ll take it!” button.
Of course, some Web videos are better at doing all this stuff than others. But how do you evaluate that effectiveness? In a nutshell, how do you determine that you’re getting the best performance possible out of your investment in video?

Bordeaux, France-based Mobiles Republic approached us with a mission to explain their flagship app, News Republic.
They presented us with a unique challenge: Make an “aspirational” Nutshell. Show how News Republic can become a part of daily life, and help people see themselves using the product. That got us thinking about telling a story about a central character.

Creating a great explanatory or demo video is just the beginning. And of course, that’s what we do over here at Planet Nutshell. But how will you host your Nutshell?
For us, it boils down to two solutions. Yes there are others out there, but we feel like these hosts offer the best combination of value, performance, and commitment to customers.
