Spike Lee Inside Man Podcast

You don't become a filmmaker by sitting in the classroom. You have to go out there and make films.

Podcasting is emerging into the mainstream with the support of it within iTunes. If you haven't been listening to podcasts you should definitely check out some either through iTunes (you need the latest version to get podcasts through iTunes) or Odeo. There is a four-part podcast that goes behind the scenes of Spike Lee's newest film, Inside Man, and it's filled with lots of insight and information about filmmaking and passion.

Video Blogging for Community Development

There is a great new article by Andy Carvin on Global Voices Online about Video Blogging for Community Development. It describes a project at MLK Elementary School in Atlantic City where a workshop is serving as a springboard for integrating video blogging into the curriculum at the school. A very neat project and it will be interesting to see what comes out of this.

In the away messages of film industry workers, they will have more than just their status, they'll let their buddies (and prospective employers) know that they'll be available for work soon. It's a neat use of technology that shows how the industry is changing.
