Okay this is a little off-topic but but I know that many of you who work with digital music also to digital video.
The producers of Battlestar Galactica have released a free videomaker toolkit at http://www.scifi.com/battlestar/videomaker/. The toolkit contains video and audio assets from the show. The premise is that you could record your own live-action or animated film, then use these assets as video and audio effects to sweeten your film.
Executive producer David Eick will choose one video that will air on sci-fi during an upcoming episode of Battlestar Galactica. Some artists have already uploaded videos at this site – pretty entertaining.
If any of you out there do enter, make sure you leave a comment to this post so we can check after work.
