Remixable movies

The day may not be far off when a new movie has just one director, but a hundred editors.

Wired Magazine writes about Michela Ledwidge's latest project, "Sanctuary," a ten-minute sci-fi movie "about a girl, her computer, and a mysterious murder."

But Michela's version isn't the only one; she's going to offer up all the production footage (nine hours), plus extra sound effects and dialog.

You'll get your chance to make a "Sanctuary" remake here, starting in February.

(Here's a bit more background on Michela's work.)
