Last night I attended a Weezer concert thanks to MySpace. When the lights were off you could see the revolution: lots of little screens all over the concert hall capturing the event. I posted mine to 12 Seconds TV.
But there’s something deeper going on. Last week I met up with Leo Laporte and talked about it.
Along for the ride were two documentary film producers. Their results? A video called “the new dial tone.” One of which, Marc Ostrick, was one of the film makers that worked on Obama’s campaign film last year.
What were they holding? Two low-cost cameras (none of which cost more than $200). One is a Kodak Zi8, which is a camera I’ve been using lately on my own Blip channel.
Anyway, they put together a documentary film of the Blog World Expo last week that is absolutely marvelous. In it you’ll see a ton of the biggest names and old-school, but making new media, brands like CNN in social media.
Thanks to Marc and Michael Sean Wright for letting me be part of this.
You can see the revolution happening right in front of you.
What’s another example of this revolution? Watch this separate video with the CEOs of SmugMug and Animoto (filmed on my $180 Kodak Zi8, again) where they show how ANYONE can create very high quality videos with just some photos and video clips. No skills needed. (The new SmugMug/Animoto features were announced today).
What other examples of this revolution are you seeing? Or, even better, making?
