I have been sitting on a really interesting product for about a week now. The product is Film Loop. It is a program of sorts which allows you to assemble pictures, add comments ideas and more and send them to individuals, groups and even eventually link to them on a website. I found out about Film Loop from Guy Kawasaki. Anyway, the program is still in pre-beta form, whatever that means and still it is quite amazing. I had all these plans of showing the evolution of our cooking and even just the ability to share multiple photos in one easy sharable piece. Similarly, if the maker of the loop updates or changes it everyone who has access to that loop gets updated the next time they have it launched and are on line. Also, depending on the loop, others can update and alter the work. Amazing.
Think about sending someone your entire food extravaganza, or a proposed menu in photography or even twelve great sunsets. What food and more evolve as it streams through pictures. Brilliant.
The hook, they have embedded advertising into the zoom feature of the pictures. My balloon deflates. So, I email and ask about getting rid of the advertisements. The answer, no go, the ads keep the program free for all. But, I would pay to keep it ad free. Think about that. I want to share ideas, give them away and am willing to pay someone to make sure the advertisements are not there. What has the world come to?
Anyway, perhaps since the program is still pre-beta they will work out a different system for the future. Well, since it is pre-beta, and they give it away, and it still is amazing I figured it needed to be shared. So, go to film loop and check it out. Oh, and if anyone is interested in receiving our Film Loop, Food in Motion, (with stupid advertisements embedded in the program) email us and we will get you in the loop. You will have to install film loop on your computer, not a bad thing, just not perfect yet.
