Biodiversity film

I am all about Creative Commons these days--the idea, not original to me by miles and miles,that a sharing culture can and should develop in which people license their creative work for others to use non-commercially with attribution and without fee.

I've been pleased with many uses of various songs of mine, which have included various short films, a number of podcasts, a goodish number of remixes, and the stray internet radio program or two. Today, though, I found a work that uses one of my remixes in a film I particularly admire.

The documentarian of this documentary made a compelling short film about a vanishing nature spot and the importance of biodiverse regions in our ecology. In some self-satisfied way, I wish I could say my work was a major component of the film--but it's not. Yet the little blip.tv video is a worthy watch in and of itself--visually fascinating,with a good story and a real message.

If you've got a spare moment and a love for nature, it's worth a watch!

Kudos to the film-maker, Amy Mertl, who resides in this place called Cambridge, MA, and makes these things called movies.
