TheWeblogProject premieres a revolutionary and innovative way to movie production, and one which according to its creators, may seriously start to challenge Hollywood in the near future.
TheWeblogProject is in fact the first grassroots film that will be freely distributed, via the Internet and via those very P2P networks seen today as the major threats to Hollywood own sustainability.
TheWeblogProject is the first movie in which everyone can actively participate by sending in video clips.
But there is more: TheWeblogProject allows anyone who wants to become the producer of a new independent film release.
TheWeblogProjects adopts and puts into action some of the key founding principles of the blogosphere: open, participatory, daring, collaborative, inclusive, created by the people, not by big corporations.
The movie will be: "The first open source, free, grassroots movie to support and promote the blogosphere where featured stars, producers, fundraisers and actors are the bloggers themselves."
