Some day, video editing using Free Open Source Software will be as common as word processing, once bandwidth hits a sweet spot.  That day has not arrived yet, so we are getting ready for that day now at the Digital Tipping Point.  We are giving away 360 hours of video featuring cool and interesting Penguinistas and GNUsters, as well as prominent politicians like the Mayor of Munich (Christian Ude) and Gilberto Gil, who was the Culture Minister of Brazil.  We need help with creating a check-in system and on-line video editing collaboration tool.  We need to be able to coordinate the editing of video, and, equally important, to have a MetaVid / Kaltura / Jumpcut / Eyespot tool that will help people get excited about creating video shorts and even feature-length documentaries together!

There are already lots of good tools out there, so we just need someone who can integrate these tools into a really nice, user-friendly package.  One of the primary complaints that we hear in shooting the Digital Tipping Point Documentary is that no one knows about Free Open Source Software.  The DTP documentary is a film project that seeks to overcome that lack of notoriety by making it easy for Penguinistas and GNUsters the world over to make interesting videos to share with their friends about why FOSS is cool.  As Mark Shuttleworth said at OSCON 2008, we need to out-Apple Apple, and creating funny videos is one thing that will help us (the FOSS community) get there on a limited budget by making it sexy to make documentary video shorts.  Thanks for reading this!
