RIP! A Remix Manifesto is an open-source documentary film that looks deeply into the ‘illegal’ activity that is music sharing. The Remix Culture. The Culture Jammers. Technically the film itself is breaking copyright laws by even telling us about it, showing us examples…
“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 film’s central protagonist is Girl Talk, a mash-up musician topping the charts with his sample-based songs. But is Girl Talk a paragon of people power or the Pied Piper of piracy? “
You decide. The entire film is available for one week only to view online. After that, you can purchase at Disinformation.
An interesting look at the re-mix culture and all its implications. A really great film.
