open source film competition, www.straycinema.com, launches in New Zealand

The raw footage from a film shot in London has been made available for the public to download from the Stray Cinema website. This is to provide people all over the world with the opportunity to create their own version of the film.

To participate, people must edit a one-two minute version of the film they wish to make from the available footage. Participants are then invited to post this manipulated footage back onto the Stray Cinema website, to be judged by their online community.

The top five films will be screened alongside the original film cut, at the Stray Cinema screening in London. The screening will be held six months from the day there are 30 film submissions on the website.

"Not only are we are encouraging participants to remix one source of footage, but it is a complete journey. The process began when we released our footage online. Participants then modify the footage, submit their own version on our website, and finally the chosen five are navigated from the online digital world, into the ‘real world’ with our London screening.” – Michelle Hughes (Project Coordinator).

Hey Jipsi Kinnear,

I was living in Vancouver at the time and looking for a job in editing and/or post production. I remember walking into a warehouse a block away from the BC place stadium and talking to a Terry (first or last name, can't remember). He told me the place was going to become a studio for a TV series called terminal city and that they were interested in my work. I left a reel and never heard anything back. Long story short I wound up studying aviation and moving back to Mexico afterwards. Ever since I came back I've been working in production again, too bad I never managed to get anything there. Your post brought back a lot of memories :)

My goals are more modest. Get a few acres of land, have a modest sound stage built on it with proper wiring, plumbing and soundproofing, networking..., then rent it out to raise money for my own productions. Someone always needs a good affordable sound stage. Not sure if that is a business model that would work, but at least the physical assets will be worth something if things don't work out. basically infrasructure that a production crew and come in and build a set to their needs.

I"ve looked into coverting old buildings and most of the time they are more trouble than they are worth.

Photobucket forms partnership with DivX

This looks like an interesting development. Divx is already a partner with Google.

Dcube Mvision: HD Playback, No Discs

MV-8600HD
http://www.gizmodo.com/gadgets/home-...scs-210593.php

If this thing can manage to be no more than 600 dollars then I see a lot of potential in a product like this. It should hopefully make it to the United States.

I'm going to add this to a list of things I want just incase I one day win the lottery. HVX200 + V1u + HVR-DR60 + HVR-M25U + PlayStation 3 + XBOX360 + MacBook Pro + Mac Pro + Blu-ray burner + Dcube Mvision equals a lot of green paper.

They are kind of implying you to do illegal things though, that's not a good sign.

I do like the idea of having films on someting else than discs (or harddisks).

But I don't see how this thing can beat my media center PC (which yes is small,
completely silent and does all of the above and much more).

The screen would be perfect for a portable Blu-Ray/HD-DVD player.

The P-5000 Multimedia Viewer is another cool product from Epson.
