So a bit sheepishly (as I’m in this film and really fat) (and I mean fat, not phat), let me push a favorite film by Brett Gaylor, RIP: A Remix Manifesto. The film is fantastic. Gillis (aka, GirlTalk) is amazing. And the technical execution (of course, the substance was a given for me) is extraordinary. If nothing else, remix the film (which you can at Brett’s OpenSourceCinema).
You can go to a screening, or host a screening, or buy a copy of this (CC-BY-NC) film on iTunes ($9.99), or pay whatever price you want at B-Side, or if you get it through the darknet, donate whatever you can to the company that made the film.
This is a rare filmmaker who practices what his film preaches. It is also a rare filmmaker who takes the time (and this took years) to understand a story well. Listen, and spread the word.
Read more in this great Wired piece. And thank you, Brett.
