The Star Thrower Story.

The Star Thrower Story by Joel Barker, Video, 2007, Star Thrower Distribution Corp., $395.

Paradigm-master Joel Barker tells an upbeat story about how we can make a difference. It involves someone throwing stranded starfish into the ocean. Trust me, though, the message has some substance, and Barker doesn't indulge in dramatic overkill. Well, maybe just a little ....

The video is made to high-end broadcast standards. Without the soundtrack, you might mistake it for a financial services commercial. The story could be used in a variety of settings for a variety of purposes--say, a team demoralized because they believe they aren't appreciated.


This elegant short video delivers a tale that could be used in many different ways.
