Thursday links: Remix 'Star Wars' on EyeSpot...Streaming Media East...'Manda Bala'...and more

Just back from a one-day round-trip to Los Angeles...which is technically doable, but unwise.

Some links from this morning's news

- StarWars.com and Eyespot are offering up 250 scenes from the six 'Star Wars' movies for your remixing pleasure, starting Friday (not coincidentally, the 30th anniversary of the release of 'Episode IV.')

- IPTV Evangelist has some video interviews from the recent Streaming Media East conference in New York, including execs from Microsoft, Gotuit, and AOL Video.

- Cinema Minima notes that the Sundance Grady Jury Prize-winner 'Manda Bala' (which I wrote about here) has been picked up for distribution by City Lights. Look for it this summer.

- From Beet.tv: Apple TV's sales will stall at one million units, says Forrester Research analyst Jim McQuivey. Man, this guy knows how to get attention in the blogosphere!

- Yet another Joost announcement: a deal with CAA. Joost says the agency will help bring in more content.
