Open Source Cinema.

I first met Brett Gaylor at SXSW in March and was fascinated by his concept of "open source cinema," which he's currently applying to his upcoming documentary, Basement Tapes.

The basic idea involves audience participation in the actual creation of the film -- from allowing them to reedit footage to soliciting comments from them about completing segments. Very cool stuff. Here's my piece on Basement Tapes for Stream. I hope to cover this project more after Brett finishes it up.
