Google Glass reaching out to film students in newest Creative Collective bid

It's time for Google to expand their reach with Project Glass again, this time through their Glass Creative Collective program aimed at the more artistic citizens of planet Earth. Google's reach includes the The American Film Institute, California Institute of the Arts (CalArts), Rhode Island School of Design (RISD), UCLA School of Theater, Film, and Television, and University of Southern California.

This is only the latest in a series of Glass initiatives that've appeared just this week. Glass appeared on several celebrities and creative heads including Jon Bon Jovi, Gary Shteyngart, and journalist Tim Pool. Meanwhile shareable invites have appeared in the inboxes of Google Glass owners - the expansion of Glass Explorer Program continues here.

It's not been all good news for the wearable, on the other hand, as a UK "careless driving" ban has reportedly been seen in the works.

Google continues to work on a "hyper-local" Google Now expansion that'll be well suited for Glass.

"We’re really interested to find out how Glass will contribute to the craft of storytelling, specifically through film. So, we reached out to various film schools ... They’ll start exploring how Glass can be used in production, documentary filmmaking, character development and things we haven’t yet considered. We're eager to see what they come up with and we'll be sure to share more with you once school is back in session." - Google Creative Collective

For these schools, the opportunities in filming from a first-person perspective have only just begun. Have a peek at our Project Glass tag portal as well as our Google Glass Fireside Chat Series from Google I/O 2013.
