Cinema 2.0: A Swarm Of Angels

Release from Matt Hanson:

A Swarm of Angels // Remixing cinema

A Swarm of Angels reinvents the Hollywood model of filmmaking to create
cult cinema for the Internet era.

We want to invent the future of film. Call it Cinema 2.0.

A Swarm of Angels is a project to make a £1 million film and give it
away to 1 million people in 1 year. The movie will be ‘open source’,
using the flexible digital-age copyright of Creative Commons so people
can freely download, share, and remix the feature film.

The project is conceived and directed by Brighton-based digital film
pioneer, Matt Hanson. It will be funded and developed with the help of
50,000 Angels joining the Swarm, to offer feedback, expertise, and
subscribing to the project (£25) to finance its execution.

ASOA triggered the second round of Swarm memberships on Friday evening
to push membership from 100+ to the 1000 mark. We have immediately more
than doubled membership. At our current sign up rate we will close
membership for this development phase within 7-14 days.

If you want to join the Swarm and support a groundbreaking film project,
please sign up now.

Disclosure: Cory Doctorow and I are named advisors to the project. My sole contribution was the “swarm of angels” term, because I’m basically useless.

    Better be a zombie flick! I love me a good zombie flick!

  2. As I posted in DPH, this seems ripe for a filmic adaptation of the Surfer-as-Messianic-Herald-slash-End-Times yarn… or that Global Frequency Angel episode

  3. Ah, excellent. Thank you for pointing this one out to me Mr. Ellis.
    Have now signed up my few functioning brain-cells to the hive mind. Very interesting indeed.

  4. Already signed right up. Love the concept, and hope to get as involved as I can be.
