Love this story of a DIY approach to storytelling. And lo and behold it was heard and received by the Academy! Go indie media go!

Zan Chandler's curator insight, February 26, 2013 3:05 AM

And it actually won the Oscar!

 

While the amount of footage the filmmaker needed to make with his iPhone was small in terms of the overall, I think this sends a number of signals. 1 -  consumer tech is getting closer and closer to industry standards and used in the right way can be effective; and 2 - this is another example of compelling content created with a DIY ethic.

 

I look forward to seeing more examples of where filmmaking can evolve.

Write or Die is a new kind of writing productivity application that forces you to write by providing consequences for distraction and procrastination.

 

As long as you keep typing, you're fine, but if you become distracted, punishment will ensue.

Going to use this with my 8th graders as a writing warm up activity. Many of my students get frustrated writing longer pieces, this will be a way to write short meaningful text in a game format. Will be interesting to see how this plays out.

Super cool trandsmedia story idea that involves getting kids to tell stories in a gamafied way through an app. I'm sure kids will get creative with this.
