Wikipedia’s Movie Making Manual

If one of your New Year’s resolutions is to cut down the time you spend on the internet you should probably steer clear of Wikipedia’s open-content textbooks. The “books” cover everything from How to Build a Computer to learning Mandarin to Monopoly strategy. Like everything else on Wikipedia, the content is entirely user-contributed.

Considering Wikipedia’s communal spirit, it’s fitting that one of the few readable articles in the otherwise undeveloped Movie Making Manual is a brief but interesting section on film equipment timeshares. The article discusses the pros and cons of owning equipment and includes a draft of a sample timeshare agreement. And, yes, even this is a work-in-progress, but then isn’t everything on the ‘net?
