Arduino The Documentary now online

dcuartielles writes

Arduino The Documentary is finally out. We have been waiting for long, but now you can see it at Vimeo (EN, ES) and download it from Archive.org (links coming soon). The file is licensed under CC-SA 3.0 and can be redistributed. The makers are working in making a batch of DVDs that will include the full interviews as well as footage of the different locations where the documentary was made (ITP, Parsons, Adafruit, and Makerbot New York; Medialab Prado and IES Miguel Hernandez, Madrid; Laboral Centro de Arte, Gijon). Here the documentary in English:

And here in Spanish (there are subtitles in other languages at Archive.org):

The music is from People Like Us and Ergo Phizmiz, the theme chosen is Ghosts Before Breakfast, feel free to check it out.

Just anticipating any questions about this: no, Arduino has not supported the production of this documentary beyond giving access to our 2010 NYC meeting, donating some footage of the production plan in Ivrea, Italy, and being dead honest about what we think the future of embedded computing will be. Whatever message the documentary transmits is part of the work of its makers. We are just grateful they think the same way we do and that the result turned out this way. We are also thankful to everyone that showed up in the video saying how cool our project is, and to all of you that are making it possible.

All the work was made by Rodrigo (twitt him at @rodhk) and Raul (idea, film, postproduction), Gustavo (who promoted this in the first place), and the people at Laboral Centro de Arte (financing, and equipment) in Gijon, Spain.

PS. this was the best xmas present I could get for 2010, thanks guys!

  1. That was a fantastic movie! Teaching Arduino in High School is a really great idea! I like how the film touches on how Arduino will be, and is, used for Art vs. strictly technology.

    Thanks for posting the documentary. I absolutely loved every minute of it!!

  2. Everyone should see this, it really impressed me. I’ve been talking about it all day to anyone who is nearby. This gives me hope for the future in spite of what we hear.

  3. Is there any swearing in it? I am about to watch it with my 3 yr old whom is very into Arduino – well – he likes the things I make for him… I don’t have any spare time to watch it before hand… If I don’t get a reply I will preview and watch it with him later, of course… Thanks in advance!
