Editorial Reviews

In Search of the Valley tells the story of three friends' personal journey into the psyche of Silicon Valley, when in September of 2004 they swapped London for California, spending one month visiting and talking to many of the valley's heavyweights and biggest personalities.

Directed by Steve O'Hear, and produced by Fleeta Siegel, the resulting film is a unique interpretation of Silicon Valley - a social fabric that has produced some of the most remarkable technological advances of the 20th Century, and spawned an infectious dichotomy of counterculture and entrepreneurship.

This is a fabulous documentary, and I'm not just saying that because I'm in it. It took a documentary team from London to do Silicon Valley justice. They interviewed people who were there from the start (of the most recent tech leap, not from the time of Stanford's beginnings and its contribution to the current Silicon Valley) and others who came along just for the ride. Steve O'Hare and Fleeta Siegel did an absolutely hands-down job distilling the story of why Silicon Valley was the place where technology, money, creativity and drive melded to create the leaps and bounds in the advancement that brought us to the extraordinary place we are today. I've been covering the Valley for what seems like a millennia and have seen every documentary, read every book and article, but it took this team to give the Valley's story a breezy, purposeful and intriguing look behind the curtain. The documentary takes a fresh look that only a UK team could provide. I love this film!!! A must-have for anyone looking for the true meaning of innovation and how to capture it in a bottle and take it home. Nice!

As someone who has read a lot about Silicon Valley but have never been there, nor put faces and voices to many of the people I have encountered whilst reading, this was a great video to make that link.

It also gave me an insight into many of the aspects I have heard about yet not seen (the HP garage, Bucks restaurant where Netscape and others were founded, the computer museum, burning man) - next time i hear people talking of these online i'll now have a picture in my head.

There was also a lot about the history and innovation of Silicon Valley - this is where i wish there was more. I could really see this video being the first in a series, each subsequently looking at a specific area whether art, tech or culture. There is just so much to delve into.

Most importantly, I'd recommend anyone starting a technology company (like myself) to watch this video - many of the people speaking in this video created our industry and listening to just a few minutes of each serves as amazing inspiration for us all!

If you think you know the basic outline of the Silicon Valley Era of the computer industry, this DVD has some interesting interviews with some of the players. Of course, most of them are 20 years older. This stuff was interesting to me, but others have done better, much better in painting a high level portrait of the era.
