Tiffany Shlain, founder of the Webby Awards, one of Newsweek‘s “Women Shaping the 21st Century” and director of the acclaimed documentary, “Connected: An Autobiography about Love, Death & Technology,” and her team at The Moxie Institute are changing the way people make films.
Over the course of six months, Shlain and her team asked people from all over the world to film themselves feeling their heartbeat and thinking about what it means. The result? Her latest film, called ENGAGE: (Keep your eye out for genConnect in the credits!)
Highlighting a new genre of filmmaking called Cloud Filmmaking, Shlain employs user-submitted content to collaboratively create, translate and customize films. ENGAGE seeks to remind us that life can be short and ultimately asks, “How are you going to engage?” It is the third film in the digital short film series Let it Ripple: Mobile Films For Global Change.
Engage has been translated into Swahili, Spanish, French, Chinese, Arabic, Hindi, and Russian.
