Maker Faire Movies

David has the details on our MAKE Faire movies!“The Maker Faire is coming up on April 22-23 at the San Mateo Fairgrounds. If you have a project you’d like to show off but can’t make it to the event, the MAKE: Movies film festival is a great way to be part of the fun! Just grab your camcorder, shoot some footage of your project and, if you’d like, explain the method behind your madness. Then submit it to via the MAKE: Movies Web page! Our favorite footage will premiere at the Maker Faire and be played throughout the event. You’ll also be eligible for special MAKE: prizes, like a limited edition box set of the first four volumes of MAKE: signed by the whole MAKE: team.

To inspire you, here’s video of Anthony Levandowski’s self-driving motorcycle, Graffiti Research Lab’s LED Throwies, and Mark Frauenfelder wailing on his cigar box guitar. Also, if you’ve seen a DIY video online that you think truly embodies the maker mindset, please point it out to us via the link at the end of this post! Deadline for video submissions has been extended to April 12! Hit the link for submission guidelines.
