Transparency and community in film making as inspired by web possibilities [Shhh: Web 2.0].
Ted describes his blog -- whence comes the enclosed potluck dinner video -- like this:
We are on the verge of a new film culture and infrastructure, driven by both the creators and the audiences. We must accept that being a filmmaker means taking responsibility for our films all the way through the process. Building the new infrastructure is the first step towards real media independence.
Micro-budgeted, crowd-sourced, long-tailed, self-distributed feature film makers speak to the evolving business model.
