RiP! A Remix Manifesto Comments Off

Snow day!

In class today we’re gonna watch my very favorite geeky film RiP! A Remix Manifesto by Brett Gaylor and featuring many hero-worthy geeks including Larry Lessig and Cory Doctorow.

We’ll use this film as a foundation for our discussions on copyright, sharing, remix culture, and Creative Commons.

“Created over a period of six years, the documentary film 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” as Gaylor put it. The project’s working title was Basement Tapes,[3] (referring to the album of the same name) but it was renamed RiP!: A Remix Manifesto prior to theatrical release. Gaylor encourages more people to create their own remixes from this movie, using media available from the Open Source Cinema website, or other websites like YouTube, Flickr, Hulu, or MySpace.

HOMEWORK:
– write a 2 paragraph review of RiP!: A Remix Manifesto. include links, images, videos, etc.
– prep 25 photos, illustrations, screenshots, or other images for uploading to Flickr next week. come to class ready to work with these files.
