*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
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. Which side of the
ideas war are you on?
Running time; 85mins. Written and Directed by Brett Gaylor.*
