The Year Of Jonas Mekas

Throughout 2007, Jonas Meekas will be releasing one short per day via his website. Much of the footage will come from his archive - turning 85 at Christmas, Meekas has been around and shooting film for decades - though the films will be new, and often include freshly created material. Each film will be between 3 and 7 minutes long and come designed to look at home on an iPod.

Wired have an interview with Meekas on his plans, and about the exciting digital tools filmmakers have at their disposal today.
