Here’s a confession. When the BBC announced the Digital Revolution documentary, produced in an open and collaborative fashion with raw(ish) interview footage and transcripts released online through the Digital Revolution Blog, I signed up to the RSS feed, kept an eye out for tweets from Aleks Krotoski… and then got distracted for a month or so.
Now that a lot of the rushes/transcripts are up, and available through a permissive license to download and edit, I’m becoming more and more impressed with the ambition and potential of this project.
Rushes will be added until 7 December. Then the fun starts, with a short film competition for anyone who wants to plunder the rushes for a 2-minute film on one of the four themes of the programme. They’ll be accepting entries from 14 December 2009 to 3 January 2010.
