Tate has a great idea:

Figure out a way to take the output from a tool like hasciicam or ASCIIMoviePlayer or apron and reimport back into a video file, probably as a qt text track, export that to a dv stream for further manipulation in iMovie and eventual output to digital video.

And he’s already figured out how to output video from ASCIIMoviePlayer. Can’t wait to see what he comes up with.
