Another good one from that bastion of all things interesting, Wired.
Wired 14.01: PLAY
Basically, indie filmmaker Michela Ledwidge is uploading all the rushes of her 10-minute SF short, Sanctuary. That way, she's hoping, people will sift through the 9 hours or so of rushes, 90 minutes of sound effects and all the other plethora she's put up on www.modfilms.com and come up with their own modded version.
Neat, huh? Now, having interviewed a few over the years, I've come to realise that film editing is one hell of an artform, so improving on the original isn't going to be easy. But that's not really the point of modding. Just imagine a Tom Cruise film where he dies repeated horrible deaths and smile...
