2008: Man With A Movie Camera

This is a version of Perry Bard‘s collaborative video project, which remakes Vertov’s Man With A Movie Camera with user-contributed footage. I have a couple of shots included so far.

See dziga.perrybard.net or my previous post for more information about the project and how to submit footage.

Update July 2008:

The project won Honorary Mention in the Digital Communities category for Ars Electronica, www.aec.at/en/prix/

The project will be presented on July 27 at ISEA 2008 in Singapore www.isea2008singapore.org.
