The Creator of Videogrep Discusses His Automated Supercutting Software PDF Print E-mail

Sam Lavigne's Videogrep is an app that automates a lot of the grunt work of the supercut--those Internet videos that put together many iterations on one theme (in the example below, Lavigne's app helped create a supercut of all the long pauses in Total Recall.)

Explains Lavigne to The Creators Project, "Videogrep is a python script that searches line by line through the text of subtitle files for a given phrase, finds the time stamp for each line of dialog that matches the search, and then uses the amazing MoviePy library to create clips and stitch a new video together. It can handle multiple video files. The basic search takes any regular expression, but you can also give it a hypernym (a semantic category, like 'liquid' or 'tool') or part-of-speech tags (shorthand for different grammatical categories). For example, 'NN' is a noun and 'JJ' is a verb, so you could search for all lines of dialog that contain a verb followed by an adjective."

Brian Knappenberger Tells Aaron Swartz's Story in 'The Internet's Own Boy' PDF Print E-mail

Brian Knappenberger’s documentary The Internet’s Own Boy, released simultaneously in theaters and on Vimeo on Demand today, tells the story of Aaron Swartz. As a child prodigy and Internet pioneer, Swartz helped build the RSS standard at age 14, co-founded Reddit at 19, and then became a famed “hacktivist.” It’s this activity which eventually led to his arrest and staggeringly serious criminal charges. Swartz tragically took his own life in January 2013. Shortly thereafter, Knappenberger decided to make the film.  

After attending the Social Computing Symposium, Knappenberger took notice of how much of an effect Swartz had on the Internet community. “Everybody at this conference was very somber,” he tells Fast Company’s Co.Create. “They all seemed to know Aaron and have a story about him. Even from people who'd never met Aaron there was this incredible outpouring of frustration. I wanted to get a sense of why his story resonated so much. Since I carry a camera with me almost everywhere I go, I started filming right there."  

While telling Swartz’s story, Knappenberger’s documentary also takes on larger issues of freedom of speech. “They told Aaron's father they wanted to make an example out of him, but an example of what?” he says. “What kind of behavior were they trying to deter? The majority of Aaron's activity was about social organizing and getting people involved in their government. The notion that Aaron was some sort of quasi-celebrity hacker who needed to be made an example of is absurd and unsophisticated."
