Simon Klose 01/20/13

simon_SmWe continue our month of exploring interactivity as a “story disruptor”. Web platforms are emerging that now make it possible to remix videos and add layers of context, effectively extending post-production indefinitely. How does this effect ways we edit and tell stories?

Editor Joe Botana (@zbutcher) and I interview director¬†Simon Klose. Simon talks with us about his upcoming documentary The Pirate Bay – Away From Keyboard, it’s unique Creative Common’s license that allows anyone to remix the film and Linklib… his new interactive “second-screen” solution for online filmmakers.

Here’s our extended audio interview with Simon. Also, we apologize in advance for the bad Skype dropout, Simon was in Hanoi, Vietnam so we didn’t have the best connection.
