Full Project Description:
Cinehack is a hardware hacking resource for filmmakers; the project has a central website (cinehack.com) which features tried-and-tested DIY rigs and products which can be used to obtain high quality video. Cinehack also runs workshops with motivated self-taught video-producers from within communities. The workshops are designed to support self-sufficiency and encourage the establishment of a sustainable video production culture within the community through shared tools and expertise. In doing so, we hope to enable communities to produce high-quality videos without needing to use expensive equipment or rely upon external expertise.
