RIP: A Remix Manifesto is an open source documentary about copyright and remix culture. Created over a period of six years, the film features the collaborative remix work of hundreds of people who have contributed to this website, helping to create the world’s first open source documentary.
“Corporations are completely taking over our culture and telling us that we can only consume it. We are saying no! We want to actually create with it, respond to it, take it and mutilate it, cut it up … There is no way to kill this technology, you can only criminalize its use. If this is a crime, we have a whole generation of criminals”
They want you to help make this film. You can do this in several ways. Go to Open Source Cinema to find out how to remix footage, add your own stuff and see what others are doing. You can also help create the soundtrack for the film at CC Mixter.
Even if you’re not tech savvy, there are ways for you to participate: by commenting on the video blog or making your voice heard at one of the many public screenings.
From the film. Chapter 2: Copyright vs Copyleft
A remixers manifesto
- Culture always builds on the past
- The past always tries to control the future
- Our Future is becoming less free
- To build free societies, you must limit control of the past
