Take inspiration from the craft of others and train your brain with the help of these absorbing films.
The antidote to white-noise playlists, grainy study YouTubes and dull productivity timers, Portholes provide a motivating backdrop to keep your focus razor sharp.
Open a Porthole when you need an inspirational buddy to work alongside. Play the video as you work, and stay on task for the duration.
Observing other people do things triggers your brain to follow suit. It's why you yawn when somebody else yawns – and why we feel more productive in a library. It's to do with 'mirror neurons' in your brain. Portholes trigger these neurons to aid your productivity.
FLOWN's Flocks let you interact with real people in a live virtual co-working space. But if you miss the start, or can't fit a Flock around your commitments, Portholes are there for an accountability boost.
From university professors to playwrights, CEOs to composers, Portholes give you a window into the world of an inspiring deep worker – giving you the feeling you can do anything.
Our library of Porthole videos will keep on growing. Here's a selection of the people we've captured deep in their work.
