At the Good Pitch NY last month, Brett Gaylor briefly discussed how the Mozilla Foundation is working to connect filmmakers and technologists. I followed up with him to see what that meant and he pointed me to the Web Made Movies project. According to the website, Web Made Movies is Mozilla’s open video lab where they’re “bringing filmmakers and hackers together to explore how modern browser technology can reshape moving images on the web”. So what does this mean? It basically looks like a mash-up of many different online tools ranging from Google maps and Wikipedia to Twitter and Flickr. Different points in the video trigger new information into the widgets displayed alongside of it. Still confused? The best way to understand this new tool is to watch it in action.
Web Made Movies has created tools to allow anyone to create their own interactive videos. To learn more about the tools and their plans for 2011, visit: webmademovies.org.
