An experiment in reworking a classic of documentary film, Dziga Vertov's Man With A Movie Camera (1929). Myself and two classmates completed this project for Amir Husak's Documentary Practice and Emerging Media class in Media Studies at the New School for Public Engagement.
It was inspired by Perry Bard's interactive Man With A Movie Camera project, which allows people everywhere to upload their own versions of the shots from Vertov's film, then reassembles the film using the latest uploaded versions. You can explore the project here: dziga.perrybard.net/
