RiP: A remix manifesto (Ticket Giveaway)

by Kenji Maeda on March 2, 2009

I’m giving away a pair of tickets to the Sunday, March 8 2009 screening of RiP: A remix manifesto presented by DOXA.

Screening takes place at 7:00pm at Vancity Theatre (1181 Seymour Street, Vancouver BC).

Read the details below for ticket giveaway entry instructions.

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. Brett will be on hand via Skype for a live Q&A following the screening.

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? Creative Commons founder, Lawrence Lessig, Brazil’s Minister of Culture Gilberto Gil and pop culture critic Cory Doctorow are also along for the ride.

A participatory media experiment, from day one, Brett shares his raw footage at opensourcecinema.org, for anyone to remix. This movie-as-mash-up method allows these remixes to become an integral part of the film. With RiP: A remix manifesto, Gaylor and Girl Talk sound an urgent alarm and draw the lines of battle.

Brett Gaylor is a documentary filmmaker and new media director.  He is the creator of opensourcecinema.org, a video remix community which supports the production of his feature documentary RiP: A remix manifesto.

He is also the web producer of the HomelessNation.org, a web project dedicated to bridging the digital divide – allowing everyone to participate in online culture.

Brett is one of Canada’s first videobloggers and has been working with youth and media for over 10 years, and is a founding instructor of the Gulf Islands Film and Television School.
