In this edition of “this conference is being recorded”, we sit down with Jasmine Antonick from Cambrianhouse, a crowdsourced incubator for ideas. Cambrianhouse combines the concept of open source with crowdsourcing to create an interesting model that is providing new revenue streams for the members of its community. For instance a recent project, was selected from a pool of ideas by a community vote. Then a call went out through the community for programmers, project managers, and producers etc. Once the team was assembled they began developing the project. When the project is ready Cambrianhouse will bring it to market. As money is generated the revenue is returned to the team that built the project. is a project that puts filmmakers in touch with film lovers in an effort to fund projects. *Special note this interview was recorded this past winter.

  • What an interesting path from idea through to completion and success. Her insight into not allowing other peoples value system of "what should be important to you vs. what is really the reason you make" movies was wonderful. I'm impressed, given the whirlwind of the Oscar experience, that she had the foresight to pull back and realize it so clearly.

    And, without intentionally sounding like a suck up, thanks for your continued open source approach to film making. If I had any success worthy of mention at this point, I would approach sharing of knowledge the same way :)

    What I like the most is that these interviews are allowed to grow organically as they are not forced to fit into a television interview time frame/format. And this allows the filmmakers to effectively express themselves with as much detail as they feel is required. Great stuff. I feel like I'm getting a free film making lesson every week!
