"This project is the brainchild of literary experimenter Amaranth Borsuk and designer and developer Brad Bouse and is effectively a book of augmented-reality poetry. It is a joyfully self-referential art project that examines what takes place between the pages of the book that bring words to life on the screen when captured by a computer’s webcam."

What If Movie Screens Were Truly Connected? | expanding cinema | Scoop.it

Hyperpersonalized Escape: Defining The Television Experience In A Single Word - TechCrunch | expanding cinema | Scoop.it

"My newest golden rule of creating TV technology and experiences is this: If the product doesn’t take “escape” into account in a major way, it is utterly doomed to fail. So to TV, device, service, and app makers – think about how people really do watch TV. They aren’t changing, no matter how much you try to force it down their throats."

But Sony's PlayStation Vita can now do proper, three-dimensional AR all on its own. No tricks, no cards. All it needs is its camera and the real world.

MediaShift . How New Platforms, Streaming Media Change the Equation for Indie Filmmakers | PBS | expanding cinema | Scoop.it

"Traditionally, there were three main types of distribution for the work of independent filmmakers: theatrical, broadcast and straight to DVD. Most filmmakers hoped for a combination of all three.

But everything has changed. The digital online world has opened up new avenues of distribution including video on demand, live streaming, and mobile and tablet applications.

Indie filmmakers are harnessing these digital forms of distribution to increase their audience and maintain control of their film, but the "how and where" their film is viewed, the financial recovery of production costs, and their eligibility for awards all factor into their choices."
