RIP: A Remix Manifesto
Is Girl Talk a paragon of people power or the Pied Piper of piracy? In RiP: A remix manifesto, Web activist and filmmaker Brett Gaylor explores issues of copyright in the information age, mashing up the media landscape of the 20th century and shattering the wall between users and producers.The filmâ€™s central protagonist is Girl Talk, a mash-up musician topping the charts with his sample-based songs. If his music tickles your fancy or not I can defiantly say the film is an excitable and riveting gander into one of the more pressing issues that faces our Internet generation. Anyone who believes that creativity should be able to use all surrounding influences in order to evolve ideas and thoughts needs to watch this film. Where do you stand on the issue?
This is not a film that is trying to say copying should be legal. It is a film saying if you take an idea that exists and build it into something new; it's an evolution and a progression. The film was created over a period of six years, it features the collaborative remix work of hundreds of people who have contributed to the open source cinema website, helping to create the world's first open source documentary. It's a beautiful collaborative which stirs emotions in the viewer of further possibilities of what else could be. Want to be apart of it and do more to prove this important point?
