I'm a filmmaker, technologist, and one of the instigators of an egalitarian community of 17 people, called Trout Gulch, where we are building a studio, village, farm, and maker space inspired by the actions of Christopher Alexander, Will Allen, Sepp Holzer, and Marcin. My film team, Encyclopedia Pictura, is working with hollywood to create a new populist heroic myth for the maker movement.
I'm anticipating that the entire GVCS will be created and documented, then replicated by mechanics, geeks, hippies, weekend warriors, and tough guys that are into their trucks. I think OSE is contributing tangibly and symbolically to the greater cultural shift toward localism, authenticity, and DIY green tech.
