CLOUDS is not a linear film, but a real-time executable which generates sequences of dialogue based on interactive input. Each of the interviews has been edited into individual fragments, and richly tagged. An algorithm then leaps from clip to clip, creating new conversations on the fly, while preserving continuity of ideas and themes. Viewers use gesture and spatial interaction metaphors to chart a course through the rhizomatic content space.
  The interview subjects in CLOUDS are an intergenerational community of more than 40 artists, designers, hackers and thinkers. They discuss the challenges of developing new forms of expression that resonate at a deeper human level. The documentary captures the story of collaboratively inventing open-source tools that form the foundation of a global creative culture. Interview subjects include founders of free creative coding platforms, such as Casey Reas and Zach Lieberman, as well as critical perspectives from thinkers like Bruce Sterling and Regine Debatty.       CREDITS     Directors   Jonathan Minard    James George       Executive Producer    Golan Levin       Producer    Winslow Porter       Design Director    Bradley Munkowitz       Music    R Luke DuBois       Interview Subjects Include    Aaron Koblin, Andres Colubri, Bruce Sterling, Casey Reas, Chris Sugrue, Damian Stewart, Daniel Shiffman, Diederick Huijbers, Elliot Woods, Fernanda Viegas, Golan Levin, Greg Borenstein, Javier Fadul, Jen Lowe, Jer Thorp, Jesse Louis-Rosenberg, Jessica Rosenkrantz, Joel Lewis, John Maeda, Josh Nimoy, Julia Kaganskiy, Julian Oliver, Karolina Sobecka, Karsten Schmidt, Kevin Slavin, Kyle Chayka, Kyle McDonald, Lauren McCarthy, LIA, Lindsay Howard, Marcus Wendt, Marius Watz, Martin Wattenberg, Paola Antonelli, Patricio Gonzales Vivo, Philip Whitfield, Rachel Binx, Ramsey Nasser, Regine Debatty, Shantell Martin, Sofy Yuditskaya, Theo Watson, Vera Glahn, Zach Lieberman        Lead Visual Systems Designer    Lars Berg    Lead Interaction Developer    Elie Zananiri     Systems Engineer    Surya Mattu       Visual Systems Development    Patricio González Vivo, Reza Ali, Gal Sasson, Omer Shapira, Michael Allison, Jeff Crouse, Quin Kennedy       Interface Developer    Luisa Pereira, Charlie Whitney, Jack Kalish       Interface Design    Sarah Hallacher, Erica Gorochow       Commissioned Artists    Shantell Martin, Zach Lieberman, Nervous System, Marius Watz, Karolina Sobecka, Casey Reas, Satoru Higa, Josh Nimoy       Additional Music     Julian LaPlace, Tony Lim       Sound Mixing     Brett Murphy       Foreign Language Translation    Keiko Uenishi, Luisa Pereira       User Experience Consulting     Jason Walters, Mike Ballard       Web Development    Mike Heavers       Additional Footage Provided by    Future of Storytelling Conference
