Machinima


I recently wrote an article entitles (The Birth of Global Folk Culture) in which I discuss the rise of a decentralized, open source style, and user created evolution of culture that bears resemblance to traditional folk culture, but is now taking place in a global sphere rather than in some isolated local.

In relation to that post I read some news from Wired about a way of making film, and a film genre, called Machinima. I had heard vague things about this before but I didn't realize the extent to which the genre had matured. If you are interested in viewing some of these short films go here.
I haven't had much of a chance view these films but I did watch one called 'The Journey' and it was definatly more in the art category than the entertainment category.

Just Imagine the kinds of film some young aspiring artist will be able to make with a home computer circa 2010. Get ready to say goodbye to Hollywood in a few more years. I can't wait.

You're talking about the individuals gaining the ability to produce pro-level information - music now, movies later.

I brought a related subject awhile back in this post:

"Things are About to get Interesting."

It's about fab labs - how the average joe is going to be able to "print" products. The value of physical products will be reduced to the cost of the raw materials (which is very cheap) and information.

Basically we'll all be in the information business. Adding value will be about making things that are useful to unique problems - our own problems.

I remember that post stephen. Home fabrication is very cool. I have a link to RepRap over in the blogroll and I eagerly click it about once a week hoping that the project's been completed. Just imagine the possibilites!

Micah:

Back in April Dr. Bowyer said that he expects he'll need 4 years to have a working prototype of a self-replicating fab lab.

And, of course, the first versions will be rather limited.

That'll get better over time.

Here’s a list of tools you will need to start: Jewelers’ pandora jewellery wire cutters - If you can only afford one pair, get memory wire shears. pandora charms These are designed to make clean cuts on tough memory wire, so can also be used for pandora charms uk softer wires. Chain-nose pliers sometimes called cheap pandora charms needle-nose pliers – Very versatile for picking up and grasping small items, pandora charms sale bending eye pins, closing jumps rings, even closing crimp beads. discount pandora charms Round-nose pliers – Used for creating loops on beaded head and eye pins.

Crimping pliers which have little notches to allow you to both flatten a crimp bead and then bend it to form a rounded finished look instead of the flat crimp you pandora uk get using the chain-nose pliers. As for materials, I recommend some assortment packs of beads in coordinating colors, some decorative metal spacers, seed beads in both silver and gold These can serve as spacers and beautifully set off pandora sale your other beads., tube-shaped crimp beads Buy the best you can find – these are what hold it all together!, head and eye pins. Other than that, let your choice of project be your guide. You might want some silver or pewter charms.
