MANHATTAN EDIT WORKSHOP and LO-FI PICTURES LAUNCH
GROUNDBREAKING, PUBLIC COLLABORATION FILM “Out of Many”
January 19, 2010 (New York, NY) Lo-Fi Pictures’ feature length documentary “OUT OF MANY” (www.outofmanythemovie.com) focuses on a unique group of people who attended the inauguration of Barack Obama, an event that changed American history. On February 15th, 2010 “OUT OF MANY” breaks its own historical ground with a game-changer of a different sort. The film will be the first feature-length movie to both invite and facilitate public collaboration and input into the editorial process. In association with Manhattan Edit Workshop, Lo-Fi Pictures will open the door to the public to help create the first truly “interactive” film. Josh Apter, Director of the film notes, “OUT OF MANY will be the first movie made for the people – BY THE PEOPLE. We are using this moment and this project to put creative power into the hands of the audience, not just the filmmaker.”
The film, originally initiated by an open call to independent filmmakers and to the creative community, will screen President’s Day, February 15th at 8PM EST as an “on-line rough cut” – the first screening of it’s kind at www.outofmanythemovie.com. A live, post- screening web chat will allow the audience to interact with the filmmakers
OUT OF MANY tells the story of five people who traveled from around the United States with the common goal of attending the inauguration of Barack Obama. The documentary takes viewers on an unforgettable trip to the heart of our nation through the eyes of five very different individuals who were compelled to attend the Inauguration for divergent reasons.
