Google glass is going to the movies.


Experimented as part as a program called "glass creative collective." it is funding film tragic using the computerized eyewear.

Last week a short film was posted on youtube and has rd been viewed by 2 million people.

Usc film school grad created the film.

He joins us from los angeles.

Also in los angeles our west coast correspondent jon erlichman.

Just as scribe what is "seeds"? what is it?

It is an adventure film.

We wanted to make a movie that was exciting that still had a lot of with and it.

It came about in a creative collective program where they came to different film schools over the nation and ask them to create a movie using the glass technology.

When they invited me to help reduce this project, that produce this project, -- to help reduce this project, we pitched ideas back and forth but what would be the ideal to tell.

He came up with this idea.

At first we were like how is this even possible?

How can they be so unhappy about the world?

It makes sense.

If you're trying to make a phone like this the traditional way, how different would it be?

Would it be possible?

I am not sure it would be impossible but it definitely helped.

A lot of people think of film makers being behind the camera.

With a glass the phone maker was the camera.

-- filmmaker was the camera.

We had real people as where as actors wearing the last.

We coined this term "orchestrated reality." he had them live their lives as they normally would.

When they got accustomed, we were able to truly capture real moments that were made into a film.

I am wondering if you could offer some technical details in terms of the clarity of the images, the ability to edit these images.


We did extensive tests before he went to india.

We found the ability to perform in low light situations was not amazing.

We were able to create our shots that it was good, when there is a lot of light around.

That was probably our biggest challenge.

We had portable batteries attached to the glass that are disposable.

As far as editing, we were able to edit it very simply by uploading the footage all the way to l.a. where our editor was constantly editing.

It was a very simple process.

It worked perfectly for this kind of project.

If you think about the future of film, do you think this replaces the gear that people are using right now?

Will you favor this over the traditional technology?

I believe there is potential for that.

What really matters is the story.

The glass and fancy cameras, all of those are tools to help them
