CALL FOR PARTICIPATION
Man With a Movie Camera: The Global Remake is a participatory video based on Vertov’s 1929 film (Man With A Movie Camera). IDFA audience is invited to interpret the film for the 21st century by uploading images to http://dziga.perrybard.net/ where software developed for this project archives, sequences and streams the submissions as a film.
HOW TO PARTICIPATE
Log onto http://dziga.perrybard.net. The website has a tag list and a scene index where every shot of Vertov’s film is logged. You can participate by uploading a shot, all the shots in a scene or more, multiple shots from different scenes. Shots are listed by number of seconds and frames. Timing is important. Please adhere to the length (more or less, software will adjust it) of Vertov’s shot, the interpretation is up to your imagination. Copyright laws apply.
e.g. Click on Scene 2 Shot 19. Click see all uploads. There are 6 for this shot meaning a different shot will play each day. Click on any upload, it plays as a split screen with the original. The Tags function the same way. When you click upload for a shot, a form comes up for you to fill in. If you have a website yours is linked to this one. Your name is added to the Participants Page and your upload shows up immediately on the Intro page under Recent Uploads. Your email is kept private. Your upload plays in the next day’s version of the film. If you upload where noone else has, your upload will play daily until someone else uploads that shot.
