Make your Own Version of a Movie

Got this from the Camcorder Info blog:

Here’s an interesting idea: movies that you can remix yourself. Michela Ledwidge made a short sci-fi film called Sanctuary, but she wants to take it a step further. In February, she’ll be offering up all of the film that she shot, the sound effects, the storyboards and other production documents and allowing others to make their own version of the film: the director describes it as a “re-mixable live action graphic novel”. The stuff isn’t available yet, but you can register as being interested for when it is. It will be released under a creative commons license, so you can chop or change it as much as you like, and even use it in your own (non-commercial) films.

This is a great idea: I’ve watched loads of films that have inspired me (either by being very good or very bad), and it would be a fascinating to try and make my own version. I'll be posting more on this as the project develops.

I too think this is a cool idea. Especially for folks learning filmmaking or seasoned pros wanting to refine and test their skills. Plus it might just be fun!

Who Am I?

I'm a filmmaker who's produced & directed five feature films including the comedy SPILT MILK (available on iTunes), the new horror/thriller PHOBIA (on iTunes) and the action/thiller KILLING DOWN (which you can buy or rent at pretty much all the usual places).

I also created the Streamy and Webby award-winning web series PINK, which to date has been viewed online around 10 MILLION times at places like YouTube, Hulu, Koldcast and And speaking of, I also produced and directed an online thriller for them called EXPOSED. It was released summer 2010. And most recently I created a new online sci-fi series called CONTINUUM, which is part of the online indie TV network - Just The Story and NOW available via VOD through indie platform Distrify.

Oh, and I don't shoot weddings. Thanks for asking though.
