That looks good.

Hi Mara - I'm up for trying to support an upcoming film project in a
similar way.

The film is based around a timeline of horizontal organising and direct
action - working title is I think 'Rent a mob - a timeline of trouble

So lots of interviews are happening to be recorded and released under
open licence as a parallel web release to add to the edited film.

I'm interested in this aspect and how to best represent it by Date, and
by Event, Location, and by Campaign or Theme.

In someway the representation of video along a timeline that you can
zoom in on for more granularity or zoom out for more of an over all
picture is the the bit I'm most interested in.

It does seem like Popcorn is a good project to work with. I know that
when we were doing the Open Video Course there was a great demo of it we
found -

The idea would be to represent Video and associated Audio and Still for
people that don't want to be on the video - along  a timeline or by
category in a pleasing fashion - getting out of the box!

AND even more ideally to come up with a bit of modular spec for
submitting multimedia content to be put into this timeline so it can
become a living and easily updatable resources. (maybe interacting with
uploaded files on archive.org for prosperity and keeping it cheap) .

I'm wondering if this isn't a good excuse for a HactionLab gathering
around this specific area. I think getting 5-15 people in a room and
working with some existing video clips would be really productive I think.

Also they are already doing this kind of thing in the London Hackspace
as far as I know.

Would anyone on the list be interested in something like that if it

nice one
