Bruce Sterling + Lev Manovich and Soft Cinema

Lev Manovich, new media culture critic, was name checked by Bruce Sterling in his SXSW keynote.

Manovich states on his site for Soft Cinema:
At the heart of the project is custom software and media databases. The software edits movies in real time by choosing the elements from the database using the systems of rules defined by the authors.

University of Denver film professor Tony Gault has been doing this type of algorithm/logic driven remix/montage with film for many years
