Over the past year a group of us at the Annenberg Center have been planning 24/7: A DIY Video Summit to be held in February 2008. We’ve posted an announcement of the event on our DIY media blog, on our live journal community, and in more detail here.
The event grew out of Networked Publics, a collaborative research group that I was a part of at the Annenberg Center in 2006-2007. 24/7 is meant to bring together creative, academic, and industry groups to celebrate and negociate the future of DIY video and to further explore some of the issues raised at the Networked Publics conference and in our forthcoming book.
I’ve just finished watching the videos submitted by our great group of curators from across various DIY genres (including machinima, vloging, youth video, fan vids, documentary) and here are a few of my favorites:
And here is a collection of political remix mashups.
