Streetfilms News: Podcasts, YouTube, Twitter and “Streetfilms Shorties”

You’ve been asking for more ways to get your Streetfilms fix, and now you’ve got ’em.

In addition to now posting all of our new films directly to YouTube, we’ve started podcasting on iTunes and Miro, making it easy to enjoy the latest and greatest from Streetfilms just about anywhere. Currently, our top 25 films are available for download and we’re working on getting the entire Streetfilms collection up pronto.

In other exciting news, Streetfilms is Twittering away, keeping you up to date on where we are and what we’re working on. Follow us and you’ll get instant notification about our latest films and ways you can contribute.

And via Twitter, you’ll also get instant access to our newest creation: "Streetfilms Shorties." These are little fun bits of video — sometimes just one shot, never longer than a minute — we may have captured while out and about that doesn’t yield a full traditional Streetfilm, but are intriguing. These shorts will only appear on our YouTube account and we’ll immediately Tweet them. Wanna see our first stab? Check it out above.

Finally, we’ll have some very exciting news in mid-October concerning the Streetfilms site as a whole. So stay tuned.
