Latest revision as of 00:29, 12 August 2016


Today you can hand someone a free computer CD so they can try out free/open source. But imagine if you could hand someone a free DVD *movie* that explains *why* they should do this? Watching a movie is a lot more fun than reinstalling an operating system (except for the more geeky among us).

With a good free movie, we can much more effectively spread word about the free/open source software movement, wiki, free content, and all the other Free Culture movements that have been reshaping the world.

What

This page is here for brainstorming about creating a http://spread.freeculture.org/ project that will have the goal of collecting, creating and providing films and videos about free culture. It will be a repository of source material for creating films about our movements, and a place where people can collaborate and post these films for sharing with others.

A Free Culture based project to collect public-domain based videos about the Free Culture movement in order to produce other media from this to help grow the Free Culture community and help get peole into Free Culture. The Free Culture movement includes people, software and resources around the ideas of Free Software, Free Content, Open Source, and Open Content.

See Bryce's Free Culture Movie blog post for the original concept proposal.


Who

Anyone who wants to sign-up and help contribute. Particularly people who like to collect video, film open source events, interview people, craft good storylines, and edit or produce movies.
