2008: Man With a Movie Camera is a global remake of Vertov’s 1929 film (Man With A Movie Camera) using the web to archive, sequence and deliver submissions to the Big Screen Manchester UK on October 11 with more public venues in the UK through 2008.

Go to where there is a scene index and every shot of Vertov’s film is logged, with an intro to the project. The scene index and shot list are there for reference : this doesn’t have to be a copy, it can be a 21st century version inspired by the original. However the timing is important. So, if you choose a scene that’s 46 seconds long it should be in the general area of 46 seconds, the particular shots within that scene are however you
decide to make them.

At time of upload there will be slots for your name, city, country, url if you have one. No titles please on the footage you submit as it will stream as a film. All submissions will be credited and will appear on all publicity.
