The idea which founder Loic Le Muer describes as coming together at the last minute in coordination with Picture Production Company was designed as a way for journalists around the world to ask questions and get a direct response – which was then made available to the public. The Guardian’s Jemima Kiss had this to say of the experience:
I just posted a few direct questions to Spielberg and Karen Allen (Marian was always one of my favourite heroines) and it’s quite a buzz watching them reply directly to your own questions. Seesmic is quite intimate too – like most people, I just use my webcam and was still wearing my pyjamas when I recorded. But hey, pyjamas have a good internet heritage.
And the answers, coming directly from the filmmakers have an intimacy of their own, they’re far more personal than your standard TV interview.
