I saw the Brothers Grimm on a plane yesterday. ( I liked it, I love the worlds that Terry Gilliam creates). And I especially liked the paraphernalia that the Brothers used to perform their ousting of evil spirits. Instruments and tubes and wires and thingys in special compartments in special cases.
I've always been a sucker for that kind of thing.
I always wanted a special Joe 90 secret agent spy case.
And I always like the cases assassins have in movies - they open their case and all the tools of the trade are right there in proper little compartments cut into the foam. It connotes such authority and expertise. It tells you that they've got everything they need and nothing they don't. And that they know what they're doing, they've done this before.
I wish planners had a similar need for paraphernalia - it would make the job less virtual, give it more authority. Maybe we should try and invent some. Small vials of gravitas, special insighting equipment and retractable briefing pods.
