Although not designed for this module ClipTag was made to create generative auto films. Taking advantage of the volumous amounts of photo's people post on Flickr with tags acting as meta-data relating to the images content or peoples general response to the image. ClipTag currently uses a set of user uploaded sound samples that are tagged, basicly mirroring the format of Flickr. When you visit the page a random set of events are triggered, firstly the script randomly aquires five sound clips and takes their takes their tags and passes them to Flickr to search, the top images returned for each tag are then combined with the sound of the same tag. The process creates shorts entirely based on still images and entirely independent of direct human authorship. Sometime the results are boring and tenuous but occasionly their are relationship between the sounds and images that just click.
