I just found a great post on the Miro blog from last week. The makers of documentary Steal This Film have started a new project called Steal This Footage, in which they allow unfettered access to full-length interviews and footage from their own film and encourage other filmmakers to use it in their own projects. For doc creators on normally miniscule budgets, this could open up a whole new way to create and share their work.
I’m not a filmmaker, but I sense that this could really change things for a lot of people, both existing and potential filmmakers. What do you think?
