[MISP] The Internet? Bah!

As I patiently sit here waiting for videos from our Santa Fe Film Festival 2009 Webcast to upload to YouTube I thought I would share an article that was emailed me. Wonder what ever happened to Clifford Stoll?

The Internet? Bah!

Hype alert: Why cyberspace isn't, and will never be, nirvana

By Clifford Stoll | NEWSWEEK
From the magazine issue dated Feb 27, 1995

After two decades online, I'm perplexed. It's not that I haven't had a gas of a good time on the Internet. I've met great people and even caught a hacker or two. But today, I'm uneasy about this most trendy and oversold community. Visionaries see a future of telecommuting workers, interactive libraries and multimedia classrooms. They speak of electronic town meetings and virtual communities. Commerce and business will shift from offices and malls to networks and modems. And the freedom of digital networks will make government more democratic.

Baloney. Do our computer pundits lack all common sense? The truth in no online database will replace your daily newspaper, no CD-ROM can take the place of a competent teacher and no computer network will change the way government works.

Consider today's online world. The Usenet, a worldwide bulletin board, allows anyone to post messages across the nation. Your word gets out, leapfrogging editors and publishers. Every voice can be heard cheaply and instantly. The result? Every voice is heard. The cacophany more closely resembles citizens band radio, complete with handles, harrasment, and anonymous threats. When most everyone shouts, few listen. How about electronic publishing? Try reading a book on disc. At best, it's an unpleasant chore: the myopic glow of a clunky computer replaces the friendly pages of a book. And you can't tote that laptop to the beach. Yet Nicholas Negroponte, director of the MIT Media Lab, predicts that we'll soon buy books and newspapers straight over the Intenet. Uh, sure.

What the Internet hucksters won't tell you is tht the Internet is one big ocean of unedited data, without any pretense of completeness. Lacking editors, reviewers or critics, the Internet has become a wasteland of unfiltered data. You don't know what to ignore and what's worth reading. Logged onto the World Wide Web, I hunt for the date of the Battle of Trafalgar. Hundreds of files show up, and it takes 15 minutes to unravel them–one's a biography written by an eighth grader, the second is a computer game that doesn't work and the third is an image of a London monument. None answers my question, and my search is periodically interrupted by messages like, "Too many connectios, try again later."

Won't the Internet be useful in governing? Internet addicts clamor for government reports. But when Andy Spano ran for county executive in Westchester County, N.Y., he put every press release and position paper onto a bulletin board. In that affluent county, with plenty of computer companies, how many voters logged in? Fewer than 30. Not a good omen.

Point and click:

Then there are those pushing computers into schools. We're told that multimedia will make schoolwork easy and fun. Students will happily learn from animated characters while taught by expertly tailored software.Who needs teachers when you've got computer-aided education? Bah. These expensive toys are difficult to use in classrooms and require extensive teacher training. Sure, kids love videogames–but think of your own experience: can you recall even one educational filmstrip of decades past? I'll bet you remember the two or three great teachers who made a difference in your life.

Then there's cyberbusiness. We're promised instant catalog shopping–just point and click for great deals. We'll order airline tickets over the network, make restaurant reservations and negotiate sales contracts. Stores will become obselete. So how come my local mall does more business in an afternoon than the entire Internet handles in a month? Even if there were a trustworthy way to send money over the Internet–which there isn't–the network is missing a most essential ingredient of capitalism: salespeople.

What's missing from this electronic wonderland? Human contact. Discount the fawning techno-burble about virtual communities. Computers and networks isolate us from one another. A network chat line is a limp substitute for meeting friends over coffee. No interactive multimedia display comes close to the excitement of a live concert. And who'd prefer cybersex to the real thing? While the Internet beckons brightly, seductively flashing an icon of knowledge-as-power, this nonplace lures us to surrender our time on earth. A poor substitute it is, this virtual reality where frustration is legion and where–in the holy names of Education and Progress–important aspects of human interactions are relentlessly devalued.

[MISP] NM Film Office Update - Black History Month and Governor/Redford Announcement

***This is a MISP Listserv message. Responses are sent to the list by default.*** ***For more info about MISP and the listserv, scroll to the bottom of the page*** *

(Cool News!) from the New Mexico Film Office:

 


For Immediate Release                                        Media Contact: Pahl Shipley, NM Film Office

Governor Bill Richardson and Robert Redford Announce "Milagro at Los Luceros" Initiative

 

SANTA FE-Governor Bill Richardson and acclaimed filmmaker and environmental advocate Robert Redford today announced the details of a unique collaboration called "Milagro at Los Luceros."  Programs will begin this spring and will include a series of labs, workshops, and discussions. The focus will be on creating and expanding training programs in film, arts, and the environment,

 

"It's extraordinary for a person the caliber of Robert Redford to collaborate with state government to create a new kind of initiative that will address film and film arts as they relate to jobs and jobs training," said Governor Richardson.  "It's a great gift from Robert Redford to the state of New Mexico."

 

"I have always wanted to explore new ways to enable underrepresented voices- Native American and Hispanic in particular- to tell their own stories in their own ways on their own turf," said Mr. Redford.  "I also believe in arts as an economic driver, and I look forward to helping a new generation of storytellers prove that with me and with the state of New Mexico."

 

Today's announcement is the next step in a process which began last May, when the Governor and Mr. Redford first announced the project which will be headquartered at historic Los Luceros in Northern New Mexico. 

 

The collaboration includes Mr. Redford, the New Mexico Department of Cultural Affairs, and the New Mexico Film Office, which is part of the state's Economic Development Department.

 

The name "Milagro at Los Luceros" refers to "The Milagro Beanfield War," the 1988 film directed by Mr. Redford and shot on location in Truchas, New Mexico. 

 

Los Luceros lies northeast of the town of Alcalde, New Mexico, and was added to the National Registry of Historic Places in 1983.  The New Mexico Department of Cultural Affairs purchased and operates the 148-acre property and is preserving its historic nature and integrity for the purpose of cultural, artistic, environmental, and educational activities.

 

Mr. Redford has also written an open letter to the people of New Mexico.  That letter is attached to this release.

 

MILAGRO AT LOS LUCEROS – 2010-2011 PROGRAMMING

 

Milagro at Los Luceros, a collaboration between Redford Enterprises, the

Film Division of the Economic Development Department, and the Department of Cultural Affairs, will provide immersive film jobs training to take place at historic Los Luceros in Northern New Mexico, concentrating on New Mexico Hispanic, Native American and underrepresented populations. 

 

Milagro's Programming Launch, April 2010

Events will include:

  • Multiple screenings of The Milagro Beanfield War
  • A low-rider parade celebrating the film
  • An art contest to design the Milagro logo

 

Writing Workshops:

Year-round programming for Milagro at Los Luceros will begin with a continuum of one-day story workshops entitled, "Designed Obstacles," under the creative direction of award-winning Screenwriter Joan Tewkesbury, scheduled for spring, summer and fall, 2010.

 

A 5-day Magical Realism Screenwriter's Lab using themes of Native American, Hispanic and African American culture will take place in 2011. 

 

A Screenwriter's Lab for scripts written for New Mexico landscape and using themes in Native, Hispanic or magical realism and a Native Intensive Lab under the Direction of Chris Eyre are in development, contingent on available talent and funding. 

 

Actor's Lab

Spring, 2010

Working in complement with the Screen Actors Guild (SAG) Affirmative Action & Diversity and SAG National President's Task Force for American Indians, the Actor's Lab will be under the Creative Direction of Robert Redford.  It is the first Actor's Lab designed specifically for Native and Hispanic actors and will be used as a national training model for diverse populations. 

 

One-day Audition Workshops will be held simultaneously around the state to develop and enhance auditioning skills.  Interested participants may apply for these workshops by submitting a resume highlighting dance, theatre, storytelling or film acting skills. It must be accompanied by a letter of recommendation from an educational institution, recognized mentor, or professional entity.  Participants must be at least 18 years of age.

 

Subsequently, each participant will submit an audition tape, either produced through an Audition Workshops or from previous experience.  

 

A panel of professionals will then choose the participants of the first Actor's Lab. 

 

Think Tanks

In the spring of 2010, Milagro will host its first Think Tank, held in conjunction with the New Mexico Film Office Film Finance and Distribution Conference. Milagro at Los Luceros will host innovative thinkers and leaders from both inside and outside the film industry to design a marketing and distribution plan for the future. 

 

In mid-May of 2010, Milagro at Los Luceros will host Academy Award-winning cinematographer Haskell Wexler in a discussion on the science behind filmmaking entitled "A Visual Paradigm for the Brain: The Camera as Storyteller."

 

In August of 2010, Milagro at Los Luceros will host a gathering of native filmmakers who will be attending Smithsonian's Annual Native Showcase during Indian Market.  This gathering will be designed as a follow-up to the spring Think Tank, focused on production, distribution and marketing obstacles and possible solutions.

 

Other Events:

Participant-based programming will be complemented by hosting public

screenings and discussions on Hispanic and Native American films, visual anthropology, film finance and distribution, and arts as an economic driver in New Mexico and the global economy.

 

Gatherings on the topics of science, health and the environmental, falling within the Los Luceros mission and guidelines, will also be developed.

_____________________________________________________________________

The site of Los Luceros is currently undergoing renovation and construction, scheduled for completion by January of 2011.

He is a graduate of the University of Pennsylvania with a degree in Sociology. He received his MFA from Stanford University, Spring 2007. Patton has exhibited his work in solo shows in Los Angeles at Machine Project, in San Francisco at Queens Nails Annex and at Tilton Gallery in New York. Kamau Patton has worked on numerous community based art projects for organizations such as The San Francisco Art Institute, The School House, the Museum of Children's Art, Southern Exposure and the Richmond Art Center. He has worked on public art projects commissioned by The San Francisco Arts Commission, the City of Walnut Creek, the City of San Jose, and Creative Time. Patton has worked collaboratively on artists' projects at the MoMA in New York and the Los Angeles County Museum of Art. His most recent work, Icons of Attention, is a performance project for the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in San Francisco California.

[MISP] Interesting blog on what it takes to do a HD video with a DSLR

I know there was a thread on here a couple of months ago about doing HD
videos with modern still cameras like the Canon 5D Mark II and Nikon's new
D3s, etc.

Check out this site of Vincent LaForet - one of the leaders with this. I
mean, holy cow! The camera is one of the lowest cost items on a shoot like
this.

PS: One of the Canon rumor sites says that the eagerly anticipated firmware
update for their 5D Mark II will be out the week of March 17th, close to the
NAB show, Among other things:

" Features
Live Histogram for Video
Sound Level Control
24p/25p

No word on 60fps yet, but I¹ve also heard there may be sound level meters"

Interesting stuff.
