Good name-dropping

Posted on: January 11, 2022

I will admit something — I watched and enjoyed Edgar Wright movies without knowing that he had written or directed them.

But after watching a recent movie of his, Last Night In Soho, I did a deep dive. One of the gems was this collective process-and-product YouTube video.

I usually focus on the importance of gaining insights on the processes behind products and link this to education. This time, however, I noticed how Wright would state the names of his collaborators and crew.

This is a good sort of name-dropping because it gives credit where it is due instead of showing off who you know. Attributing your influencers is something else that those of us who maintain portfolios need to do more of.
