It's been awhile Medicinefilmers, We Need your Help
Hello friend of MedicineFilms,
It's Zac here. I am thrilled to announce my new company Mediatronica has been nominated for a Webby Award this year for "Best Use of Interactive Video"! Mediatronica is a company I co-founded 3 years ago with fellow artists and technologists Eli Chapman and Greg Deocampo. Since then we've created a lot of great projects and executed many successful web campaigns with our brilliant team which includes Eric Fino, Michael Sullivan and MedicineFilms founding member Maigin Blank. For more info about Mediatronica and our work check out:
Video on the web has changed a lot in the past few years. I remember the early days of MedicineFilms and the times of me having to convince people that sharing your homemade videos online was a good idea. Now 5 years later and dozens of other web video services' success stories (sites that I will not name but you know who you are) that outshined MF, I am proud to be a part of what I think has a lot of potential in the face of "Interactive Video" on the web.
Today, I am sending out this message as a plea to support homegrown video and organic web innovations. So I urge you to watch this screencast walkthrough I made to demonstrate the Webby's voting process.
And finally, MedicineFilms itself is still open for service! Although the initial first few waves of now legendary MF communities have dissipated, the spark is still there for us to create and share our lives through video in a unique way on this thing we call the Internet!
Voting ends tomorrow April 30th at midnight EST, so please don't wait!
Thanks for all of your support,

Jared is in Intensive Care at St Joseph's Hospital in Tampa. He has suffered from a cracked pelvis, hip, ribs and a broken collar bone. The Mirage Camper vehicle he drove was destroyed.

Focus on you
Great new updates on the site! Due to the great amount of traffic, we have gotten our own dedicated server! This means we are hosting ourselves! Thanks guys.
So we can do more fun things like generate thumbnails for your movies automatically! This is really handy and a big time saver.
Better video search. The tag keywords on your movies help people search and watch them. Tagging your movies brings them into a larger context and connects your movie with others. Update your tags and see.
Try the new How about _____? link. Click on the random tag on the now page then click the Play All link to see your tags in action.
Also we are evolving the design on the site. More emphasis on your stuff. Your movies and your photos! Give us your feedback.
You make it happen!
