Help us co-create this project at thecocreate.com/. In 2009 we returned to the desert in order to recreate our real life experiences from the year before. This material was cultivated along with studio shoots and a feature film was born. The film focuses on four subjects - two people falling in love and a couple falling apart. As forces internal and external challenge their relationships to each other, each person is faced with limitations within themselves. In this unique community event in the desert each individual is given the opportunity to create their own reality. In the realities they construct our characters are forced to decide if they can allow love to reshape who they are. In August 2010 the production team is embarking on a month-long road trip across the country to shoot additional scenes for the feature film as well as continue the documentation of this process for the online series.

http://OpenIndie.com was asked to participate in the DIY DAYS incubator on April 3rd 2010 where Kieran & I spent the whole day reviewing the strengths and challenges of introducing OpenIndie to the world. The tail end of the day was spent preparing and rehearsing this presentation that I then gave to the DIY DAYS participants and the message was very well received. Afterwards Kieran said, "We aren’t the OpenIndie that went into the DIY DAYS Incubator." It was a truly transformative experience. One that has catapulted us into dialog with investors and other potential leadership and has boosted the user base of the site. If you know anyone who should be a part of the OpenIndie effort, please send referrals and suggestions along via twitter or email. http://twitter.com/arincrumley ArinCrumley @ Gmail (dot) com And please join right now and start requesting films and add your films.

http://openindie.com/ http://weliveinpublicthemovie.com http://openindie.com/films/we-live-in-public Today, March 1st 2010 OpenIndie launched in beta to the 100 filmmakers who provided over 12,000 dollars to have the site built by myself (Arin Crumley) and my co-founder Kieran Masterton. I was blown away by Kieran's quality of programming and design at launch. The site is truly inspiring to me and I'm glad to have co-designed it and to be bringing it to the public. The first 18 films were added and 7 screenings were entered into the site of tonight's We Live in Public multi-city and multi-format release. The screenings were in celebration of the films VOD & DVD release nationwide. The live Q&A was streamed online from Chicago with the filmmaker Ondi Timoner and main character of the film Josh Harris. They bantered over questions from audiences chimed in through audience members in the 5 other cities asking about the authentic of love that takes place in-front of cameras, the goal we all have with our online identities and the likeliness of Andy Warhol's promise of 15 minutes of fame to everyone alive. Josh Harris explained he's working on a wired city project of living spaces that are streamed online to interacting participants and mentioned having hollywood support for the project. Ondi Timoner mentioned she's working on a film that explores the under exposed solutions to help climate change as well as her first scripted narrative which will be about the life story of Robert Mapplethorpe. Ondi is a freaking radical. I love her. This up coming week for me will be all about further editing the copy on OpenIndie.com, the homepage design, the uploading of films feature and fixing any bugs that arise. Also of course I'm deep into editing here with Christie Strong and have the support of Niklas Schrimpf who is the causual kinesiologist on the film we are making. More info soon on how I hope to bring that film to an OpenIndie release learning from Ondi's amazing release tonight. Provided we can get all the powers that be on board. Distributed by Tubemogul.
This new years eve crystallized some big concepts for me. I wasn't planning to create new years resolutions but as I let my self sleep in recovering from the catastrophes of the day before the ways in which I'd like to improve came flying into my head. While coming to terms with it all I also was dedicating all my creative energy into figuring out what I could make for Google. They'd given me the unreleased Nexus One a few weeks prior and asked me to make a video about it offering a substantial financial incentive. So I really wanted to do something that we both would be proud of but literally couldn't get organized enough to get it done. Distributed by Tubemogul.
You are not the only one struggling. Everyone is. And we can do something about it. But first you've got to get mad. Post a video or tweet saying, "I'm as mad as hell and I'm not going to take it any more." Put @openindie and we'll find it and make a mash up of screen grabs and video clips. Actually do it. It will feel good. You'll feel better about what a panel of indie film experts at the Moma recently declared an indie film crisis. Once you've gotten mad, donate to OpenIndie here: http://bit.ly/752Dl Then blog about it.

As a tribute to the Brave Video Journalists that risk imprisoned I have teamed up with DogWoof & The Co-Operative to produce a series of videos that teach people how to Be A VJ. The more video journalists there are the less effective it is to arrest and imprison them all. You can make a difference in the world by being part of the mirror that allows humanity to look at it's self. You probably already have technology in your pocket that can empower you to start to participate in citizen video journalism today. Learn more at http://beavj.com. There is also something very important you should do right now which is sign the petition to help free the VJs that are currently in prison in Burma. These five VJs footage has aired internationally on CNN, BBC and many other networks and was the foundation for the film 'Burma VJ'. In order for us to maintain the strengths of our collective voice we must not allow the silencing of individuals. Every signature counts so please take a minute to visit this site and contribute your name. http://burmavjmovie.com/take_action/free_the_vjs And thank you for being a part of my video channel more of my videos and a virtual film school are available at: http://arincrumley.com Distributed by Tubemogul.
