Okur, Gökhan Ahmet (2007) Movie assembly: Internet image database film making /. [Thesis]
Movie Assembly is a collaborative internet film making-new media project. It aims to construct short moving images by using photographs that can be found on the internet. Because it is an internet-based project, it covers some interesting issues such as; internet image-database film making and aesthetics, social aspects of databases, new media database theories, copyright issues on the internet. Also, this kind of film making process, in the form of a series of visual studies, reveals interesting questions such as: how to construct a moving image experience by using found photographs? How to find and download particular photographs? Each visual study in this thesis project created its own set of technical and aesthetic questions. This paper analyses and comments on the abovementioned questions and issues by using the process of the Movie Assembly project, specifically tracing the database film making process step by step, taking a brief look at the social effects of databases, at the debates about what is new about database film making, its aesthetical features and technical difficulties, and comparing the Movie Assembly project with related projects.
