snstncntnrs

snstncntnrs is an open video project in the form of files that include a set of cuts described in a EDL and Final Cut Pro XML file. These cuts can be applied to any video using video editing applications.

A fantastic new video: if not for Tom created by brook hinton. She said she'd have new XML files to add soon which is fantastic!

Jennifer Proctor made this video using the snstncntnr.1 source file.

what?

The files above are text files that tell Final Cut Pro, mplayer, or several other video editing programs how to cut up and splice together a set of three videos. I took three five-minute-long videos and edited them together in a specific way. I then exported the two text files above. If the text file above is imported into a video editing program that works with EDLs or FCP XML, it can be connected to new video files to create a new work.

why creative commons?

While I support a much shorter public domain timeline, releasing this into the public domain immediately seems irresponsible. Creative Commons allows the works to be open to interaction/manipulation/remixing but not available for unattributed, commercial rip-off.

participation: your video

please post your videos that use this EDL or XML file to Youtube and send the link to snstncntnrs@atrowbri.com. These will be added to a page linked from the particular file.

copyright and the resulting video file

if you use a Creative Commons Attribution-Share Alike 3.0 licensed video edit list, is the resulting video required to share that license? Do you even have to note that the video came from the edit list? I don't know. Is the edit list more like a application that produces an image or is it more like the basic structure of the work? These are interesting questions but my stance is that any video work created using the EDL or XML file are the property of the person who made the video.

participation: your edit list

Using or reworking a single EDL is not the extent of the project. I am asking anyone who is interested to create and send an EDL and/or XML file, licensed under your own Creative Commons Attribution-Share Alike 3.0 license. these will be posted with a snstncntnr.# title and/or your own title, a link to your website, an attribution to you and your license.
