New Concept in Digital Filmmaking

The best part of digital filmmaking is that it can be highly innovative, and of course, such innovation lies in the imagination of the beholder! Leapfrogging technologies and the ever expanding internet with its plethora of options has been instrumental in bringing about a seachange in the way films are made.

Today, I am talking about a do-it-yourself collaborative filmmaking website called RootClip.com, where the creative team make a short video clip or "Rootclip" to start the story. Amateur filmmakers watch their video, then shoot their own rendition of what should happen next in less than 2 minutes. The result is an entire short film made by amateur filmmakers.



I think it's pretty exciting. Their last film actually debuted at the Travese City Film Festival. ust say this has got a lot of potential.

I've been digging your blog. As a digital user myself, it's a great resource.

The problem back then was the need to separate personal and business guidelines on the same agenda, which is very much a persistent challenge.
