When the Beastie Boys played at Madison Gardens recently they handed out 50 cameras to the audience. At the end, they gathered the cameras, edited the film and now they will release the result this weekend at Sundance film festival. The NY Times reports how the idea came to them:

While perusing the message boards on the site one day in mid-2004, Mr.
Yauch came across a concert photo snapped by a fan with his cellphone
and found himself taken with the shakiness and rawness of the image.
"The energy of it looked cool, and I thought it would look interesting
to document a whole concert," Mr. Yauch said.
