Net artists have long been interested in film artists -- Olia Lialina, Lev Manovich, and Vuk Cosic, are well-known examples. An American artist experimenting with open source and cinema is Barbara Lattanzi. Currently Artist-in-Residence at Smith College in Massachusetts, Lattanzi has written a number of softwares, inspired by legendary experimental filmmakers like Hollis Frampton and F.G. Murnau, for use with video data. Applying her HF Critical Mass or AMG Strain to film segments will yield gorgeous results, so filmmakers should click on over, download tools (and code if desired), and create new, hybrid Director's Cuts. -- Rachel Greene
