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 25, 2013 10:05 PM

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.

A very nice film and made with a little effort. Thats fine to me.

In Filmmaking Now, Directors Become Programmers And Programmers Become Gods

In Filmmaking Now, Directors Become Programmers And Programmers Become Gods | Tracking Transmedia | Scoop.it

'If you’ve ever read Neal Stephenson’s postcyberpunk epic The Diamond Age, you’ll know there’s a moment where a young actress pays several years’ salary for a surgery. It places millions of dots at spots on her skin--dots that would allow computers to track the intricacies of expression in a digital realm, to allow her to act as any avatar.


Clouds, an experimental film by James George and Jonathan Minard, shows that Stephenson’s vision of the future was a bit wrong. Now we can create detailed, 3-D avatars with just a Kinect, a stock SLR camera and a bit of custom post production--no cybernetic tattoos required. (If the project looks familiar, it’s because the team shared their technique on a Reddit AMA a few months back.)...'
