This summer, we will recreate “Jurassic Park,”  the 1993 sci-fi action blockbuster! 

Sign up now to film a scene! Take creative license with casting and film techniques, and make the scene your own! The scenes will be assembled into a complete film that is uniquely Vermont-made. 

We are also seeking musicians and composers to contribute new music to our remake! If you are a musician or composer interested in participating, sign up now!

Each team is randomly assigned a scene from the film to interpret creatively – it could be filmed with live-action, animation, remix, puppetry, and other visual styles. Technical support will be provided by community media educators throughout the project. A  series of online workshops will help you plan your production, try green screen filmmaking, and learn how to edit your scene! All participants will be able to connect and share ideas on our Crowdsourced Cinema Community Discord.

Crowdsourced Cinema VT is a mammoth statewide collaboration, produced by the Media Factory in partnership with fellow community media centers statewide. The organizations are all members of the Vermont Access Network, (VAN), a membership organization of the 25 regional Community Media Access Centers operating more than 80 local cable channels across Vermont. VAN Members use emerging communications technologies to foster free speech, encourage civic engagement, enhance public discourse, and allow elected officials and community members to communicate better. Key partners include Brattleboro Community TV, Greater Northshire Access Television, Mt. Mansfield Community Television, Lake Champlain Access TV, and Middlebury Community Television, all of whom run summer camps for Crowdsourced Cinema VT or coordinate events and workshops. 

The Crowdsourced Cinema VT project is part of a regional collaboration with Brookline Interactive Group and Northampton Open Media (the original creator of Crowdsourced Cinema), each of which are producing their own version of the same film.
