Welcome to StoryLab 101! It looks like it's your first time here.
        StoryLab 101 is a project of filmmaker Aela Callan. Here you’ll find information about Aela’s projects and get to help the production team craft the story! Think of it as a peek inside a reporter's notebook. We look forward to having you on the shoot.

Search For Success

Amit Singhal is brimming with enthusiasm and possibilities. Publicly, he is known as the master of Google's ranking algorithm. Without this guy, we wouldn't get anything useful when we "google."    Privately, he believes he can do more to change the world. Much more.
