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 Â£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 (Â£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.
