Artistic Bokeh in co-operation with Apertus Open Source Cinema and Artistic Technology Research (University of Applied Arts) is presenting the exhibit Open Source Cinema Lab at quartier21 in MuseumsQuartier Vienna.

Open Source Cinema Lab examines the emerging 'third-industrial revolution' that is occurring within the garages and workshops of enthusiasts. These enthusiasts have been coined 'makers', and are already drawing the attention of governments, with Barack Obama recently hosting a 'Maker Faire' at the Whitehouse. However, this 'maker movement' isn't only causing a technological sea change in terms of industrial manufacturing, but also a restructuring of the basic principles of the market. This is evident in particular with the Apertus Open Source Cinema project which is featured within the exhibition, and their strong ethos of openness. Apertus endorses freedom, by ensuring that they produce will be free to be used for any purpose, free to be studied, free to modify, and free to redistribute copies and copies of any modified versions to others. This freedom and openness will liberate makers, cultural producers and artists to experiment and create in hitherto unimagined ways.

Artistic Bokeh seeks to draw attention to this groundbreaking project with this exhibit and encourages the public to contribute to Apertus' crowdfunding campaign to produce the world's first publicly available open source cinema camera.

RECOMMENDED READING

This is the first hands-on guide to the entire process of designing and manufacturing open source hardware. Drawing on extensive personal experience with DIY, maker, and hardware hacking projects, industry-leading contributors share proven approaches to design, remixing, fabrication, manufacturing, troubleshooting, licensing, documentation, and running an open source hardware business. Part I covers the emergence and evolution of open source hardware, what open source hardware licenses mean, and the growing role of standards in making hardware more open. Part II offers contributors' expert advice on key tasks, ranging from creating derivatives to using source files. Part III turns to production, showing how to manufacture at multiple scales-from personal to commercial. Appendixes provide valuable checklists for design, manufacture, security, and documentation. And to foster even more hands-on learning and experimentation, the low-cost Blinky Buildings open source hardware kit is used as an example throughout.
With the shift from film to digital, a new view of the future of cinematography has emerged. Today's successful cinematographer must be equal parts artist, technician, and business-person. The cinematographer needs to master the arts of lighting, composition, framing and other aesthetic considerations, as well as the technology of digital cameras, recorders, and workflows, and must know how to choose the right tools (within their budget) to get the job done. David Stump's Digital Cinematography focusses primarily on the tools and technology of the trade, looking at how digital cameras work, the ramifications of choosing one camera versus another, and how those choices help creative cinematographers to tell a story. This book empowers you to both correctly choose the right camera and workflow for your project from today's incredibly varied options, as well as understand the ins and outs of implementing those options. Stump sheds a light on the confusing advantages and disadvantages of shooting theatrical features using digital technology and what it can or can't do.
What the world lacks right now—especially the United States, where every form of organization from government to banks to labor unions has betrayed the public trust—is integrity. Also lacking is public intelligence in the sense of decision-support: knowing what one needs to know in order to make honest decisions for the good of all, rather than corrupt decisions for the good of the few. The Open-Source Everything Manifesto is a distillation of author, strategist, analyst, and reformer Robert David Steele life's work: the transition from top-down secret command and control to a world of bottom-up, consensual, collective decision-making as a means to solve the major crises facing our world today. The book is intended to be a catalyst for citizen dialog and deliberation, and for inspiring the continued evolution of a nation in which all citizens realize our shared aspiration of direct democracy—informed participatory democracy. Open-Source Everything is a cultural and philosophical concept that is essential to creating a prosperous world at peace, a world that works for one hundred percent of humanity. The future of intelligence is not secret, not federal, and not expensive. It is about transparency, truth, and trust among our local to global collective. Only
The AXIOM Beta development will continue as planned - for the AXIOM Gamma we have teamed up with 4 other development partners so we will be able to work on more things in parallel. With a large amount of funding coming from the European Union the AXIOM Gamma will require less funds from end users to cover Non-recurring engineering (NRE) which in the end will allow us to offer the AXIOM Gamma for a fairer price. As we are developing parts of the Beta and Gamma in parallel it will allow us to define the upgrade path already earlier on. Keep in mind AXIOM Beta and AXIOM Gamma have completely different target audiences, the Beta is for developers and early adopters - a package that packs the most essential components into a robust, small and lightweight device - the AXIOM Gamma will become a full featured shoulder camera that
