Collaborative Film Making
Started in 2005, the Deptford TV project looked at collecting and assembling AV material which focused on the regeneration of Deptford. This was a collaborative process where community members, video artists, film makers, visual artists and students were asked to become contributors, make statements, leave feedback and critiques on the regeneration.
The material has been made available on the Deptford TV data-base with an open content license.
Collaborative film-making looks at creating movies using the input from multiple film makers who often do not know each other through their work. The series of videos are often stitched together by a third party who will select and edit the clips in order to result in a coherent end piece.

'The Man with a Movie Camera' or 'Living Russia' is a documentary film by Dziga Vertov. The film is noted for being the first to utilise a range of filming techniques, such as double exposure. The film strings together short video clips that focus on; life in soviet Russia, the filming of the documentary itself and, of the audience watching the film. Above is an edited version of the film used as a music video for Cinematic Orchestra's 'The Man With the Movie Camera'.
The Beauty Of A Second is a film contest presented by Wim Wenders, where filmmakers would make short films which were edited down to one second clips, these were then compiled to make a multi-author film.
This video was created in Final Cut Pro using the same method as the previous examples on this page. Short videos were recorded by four people using mobile phones. These clips were then edited and compiled.
