CFC Media Lab Alumnus Explains the Power of Fandom

alum_dbrisbane

David Brisbin, CFC Media Lab Alumnus and Production Designer for The Twilight Saga: New Moon, sheds light onto the influence fans can have on Production Design of a film franchise in yesterday’s article posted on jawbone.tv.

New Media savants have also long kept an eye on the mash-ups, machinimas, lego-film knock-offs, blog sites and other forms of FAN-MADE MEDIA in response to beloved movies — that’s old news too. What I am arguing here is that on New Moon (and presumably other shows shot in 2009) these two strands converged on the back of the current wave of tech tools in the hands of fans. The result is something new: INSTANT FAN-MADE MEDIA.

View the whole article here.
