Remix Manifesto: A True Movie for the Digital Age

It’s nice to see cul­tur­al anthro­pol­o­gy pro­fes­sor Michael Wesch get­ting fea­tured right now on YouTube’s home­page. (A pro­fes­sor get­ting fea­tured on YouTube? That has to be a first.) Any­way, Wesch is direct­ing view­ers to a film called RIP: A Remix Man­i­festo, a prize win­ning film that offers a “prob­ing inves­ti­ga­tion into how cul­ture builds upon cul­ture [think mashup] in the infor­ma­tion age.” I have post­ed the trail­er above. You can also watch the com­plete movie in mul­ti­ple parts on YouTube (Part 1 is here), or direct­ly down­load the entire film and name your price. If you haven’t seen Wesch’s own videos, you can watch his cre­ative pieces here, here, and here.
