Multiplayers create a collective family film with real time online collaborative video editing software, exploring personal memories in a new merged story.


Real time online collaborative video editing for “Bits of Us” allows players to explore an interior experience of self in memory by editing their family film, photography, and hand-drawn images within a video clip of the family film of the artist as the seed for continually changing and growing collective family film.  Participant voices and their recorded object sounds are scored to the video by a collaborating composer. In one offline component of the game, selected individual film frames are scaled to life-size installation prints, amplifying uncanny memory evoked within the stillness of a single frame. In an additional offline component, the virtual collaborative filmmaking process is screened at gallery events, extending the democratic art-making experience.
