Henrik Safegaard - Cloneartist's insight:

Today Google officially announced at the inaugural Code conference that they have built their very own prototype self-driving car. It is designed to be used in urban settings at up to 25mph. It has foam bumpers and an electric motor and, for now at least, the Google signature spinning LiDAR on top.

I really like the transmedia storytelling idea, but simultaneous transmedia? i'm not so sure...what happens to the unfiltered narration experience? i'm more for the before and after. unless films are actually written with transmedia in mind. simply transmedia-ing existing films won't work. at least not for the core story.

The folks over at CineFix have a new video with an ambitious premise: the 10 best edits in movie history. It’s a tricky task. Editing is often called “the invisible art,” and with good reason—a great edit, or sequence of edits, engages the viewer so thoroughly that the editor’s touch is concealed, rendering his or her work both seen and unseen.
