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

- 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 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.
