An Idea: Collaborative Internet Film Production Anyone?

Q: why is there no collaborative crowd film production service on the net? An idea you heard here first; Imagine you develop a script for a film – and you put it out there on the web, complete with wiki on the characters, scenes, synopsises, plots, technical needs and requirements – writing do’s and don’ts – and invite the world to create this film.

Collaborative Crowd Film Production Via the Internet

What I mean is – invite some folks to create and add the music, some to create the 3D sets and characters and animations, other to record and submit the voice overs, some to finance with the money needed, some to film a particular scene or three, others to market, others to… get the idea.

Well – I’ve been dreaming about this for about 15 years and not seen it yet or had the time to develop it myself – but I thought I’d put it in writing so someone out there can build it who has the time and $. Who knows – I may get round to it some time.

Well God bless. Edward.

The Painted Veil 2006 HD full movie

I decided to watch this movie I’ve never even heard of today – The Painted Veil – while I as working and though it started off quite slow, it turns out to be one of the best films I have ever seen. This movie made in 2006 and the HD version in full presented here is full of incredible story twists and subtle nuances – a far cry from today’s storyline-less blockbusters.

I haven’t done any film reviews but I had to do one after seeing this and I guarantee you will want to cry at many parts during the story and it leaves you with a sense of what is really of value in life – I think what the story teller and movie makers intended and succeeding in getting across. Watch The Painted Veil HD full movie below and send it to your friends. We need more movies like this. My review on The Painted Veil film is second to none – excellent – must see.

The Future of Film?

It’s Sun 29th Nov 2015 and several years ago – around 2005 while I was dreaming up ideas for a book and a resulting movie full of fun characters I had an idea. I’m sure others had it before me but I haven’t seen it anywhere as an idea or in action. I’ve seen a lot of interesting ideas for film like multiple sound sources, multiple cameras filming the same action the viewer can select betWeen to see the action from any angle. But what about this for an idea?

You heard it here first!

Imagine you are watching Star Wars with you and your buddies and you each have a new ‘4D scanner phone’ (not invented or at least released to market yet). Then the film asks you if you would like ‘viewer interaction’ in the movie and which characters you would like to be in the Star Wars film you are about to watch.

you select ‘Yes’ then you upload your full 3D body image via your smart 4D scanner phone to the video/PC device along with a sample digitised recording of your voice. The device then replaces the characters in the movie with you and your friends bodies and voices. Cool!

I have never seen this idea posited anywhere on the web and I think it would be super fun. Take it one step further and the video machine asks you which city you are in and if you would like to replace the locations and backdrops with your city’s – and then it asks if you would like different weapons to the ones Luke and Darth use and you get to select several new ones to add to your arsenal.

Then you and your buddies watch the action play our with all the main characters replaced by you guys! Then you can re-watch the whole thing another night with the characters of your friends shuffled! Coool!

One step further and you could bid for places in the movie whist at the cinema right from your phone! And maybe you even get to where the outfit and sit in the royal box and Darth and Princess Laya! Now that’s a cool idea – imagine it… you go to a premier and get to see yourself as the main character! Better bring your wallet.

Well – remember when it happens, you heard it here first:)
