Popathon Creative Hack Jam
[Please note that signing up via popathon.eventbrite.com is required]
Popcorn makes video work like the web. Before the advent of HTML5, video was a kind of 'black box', isolated from the rest of the web page. Now, Mozilla's Popcorn.js make it easy to create dynamic and interactive time-based experiences in web standard technology.
This is a really exciting moment for filmmakers and web developers to collaborate by sharing their technologies and that's exactly what we'll do at the Popathon!
Take a look at some awesome demos that have already been produced using Popcorn.
Learn by sharing and making!
Teams compete against the clock, not against each other. This day will be a great opportunity to learn about new tools by creative collaboration. Test early and often and be ready for the evening screening, where your web native narrative may be selected for the Participants' Choice Award.
Bring whatever you'll need to hack with. Charged laptops with production software, external drives with footage or have everything online. Also bring headphones, as you'll be working in a shared space. We encourage bringing ideas and content for your own projects!
