Filmmakers + web developers = Web Made Movies! This is the secret sauce WebMadeMovies is cooking with. Ah... ok. So what exactly is WebMadeMovies?
WebMadeMovies is Mozilla's open video lab and production studio. We're bringing together the world's most innovative filmmakers and web developers to show what open video and HTML5 can do. Producing cutting-edge examples and reference implementations that showcase new ways of telling stories online. And collaborating on new web tools for filmmakers and developers everywhere. Our goal: a new kind of cinema that works like the web.
As far as I can tell, WebMadeMovies is a Mozilla Drumbeat project.
Mozilla Drumbeat is about keeping the web open. We want to spark a movement. We want to keep the web open for the next 100 years. The first step: inviting you to do and make things that help the web. That's what Drumbeat is — practical projects and local events that gather smart, creative people around big ideas, solving problems and building the open web.
While the movie is playing, several components (Flickr, Wikipedia, Google Maps...) load and update themselves, depending on what the movie is showing. Interesting take on storytelling, isn't it?
