Key Note Speaker: Greg Elmer, Bell Globemedia Research Chair
As part of Open Access Week @ Ryerson, Greg Elmer will present his and Andy Opel's project “Preempting Dissent - Open Sourcing Secrecy”, a collaborative open source documentary based on their book by the same name. By publishing a “road map” of production, this project engages the audience through all stages of the project, and will create both a feature length documentary and enable a non-linear open source cinematic database that will evolve over time. The film will combine on and off line video submissions, personal testimonials, re-edited sequences, along with the filmmakers content on preemptive forms of
law enforcement and governance that have emerged in the post 9/11 world. This open source content will be available for users to remix their own documentaries. This project is funded in part by the Social Science and Humanities Research Council of Canada, the Department of Communication, Florida State University, Anglia Ruskin University, and
the Bell Globemedia Research Chair, Ryerson University.
