I know this is very old news, but I pose the question, is this crowdsourcing in a positive way or just as exploitative as shirtwoot? As an interesting aside (coincidence since I just stumbled upon this article?) the film is playing in Boulder this weekend only.
“This film couldn’t have been made without technology,” editor Joe Walker told Wired.com. “Ten years ago it would’ve been impossible. We used YouTube’s ability to collect all of this material and then we had this sort of sweatshop of people, all multilingual film students, to sift through this material. It couldn’t have been done any other way. Nobody had ever done a film like this before, so we had to sort of make it up as we went along.”
