These guys are Crowdsourcing to get this project done. They explain that 

 "We are crowdsourcing footage for two reasons: we want to create a portrait of winter as experienced by a number of different people, in a number of different neighborhoods, by people of different ages and backgrounds, from around the state; and we think the collective result will be more beautiful and surprising than anything we could have set out to film ourselves." 

A collective result may be a great way to show winter, it is also a great way to get a bunch of unpaid people to do a lot of hard work for them. 

Check out wikipedia's great article on crowdsourcing and don't forget the section titled "Controversy"

Don't let your artistic self get taken advantage of.

Well, it would be kind of hard to be taken advantage of when the guidelines clearly explain they are crowdsourcing and "this project is not for financial compensation." But maybe I should have made that clearer in my post, so thanks for the alert, Andy.

Heh. Point them to that video of the slip-sliding cars on 19th Ave E.

Although it doesn't actually seem like something that would be used in this project, I'm always happy to re-post this video, which is well on its way to 1 million views.
