I'm having fun pulling together a Pearltrees documentary from found footage of the recent Outside Lands 2011 music festival. I haven't seen anyone else take this approach but I expect people to do it in the future for various events, even birthday parties because it's really easy.
I really enjoyed being at Outside Lands but there was a ton of music that I didn't get to see, so this project also gave me an opportunity to see those other acts.
I found a lot of great footage uploaded by fans and I curated it into a collection that continues to grow as people upload more clips.
Yes, many are shaky, some of the videos are shot extremely well but the sound isn't very good but the content often makes up for the shortcomings because of the enthusiasm of the crowd, the vantage point, the singing of the fans...
For example: Arcade Fire singing "Wake Up."
Take a look at my highlights Pearltree here.
And here is the whole Pearltree:
Let me know if you'd like to team up and work with me on this project.
