Discover the basics of remix video, the best online archives, and how to download and convert footage from the internet for your film or archival use. Remix is a genre of transformative DIY media production whereby creators critique power structures by re-cutting and re-framing fragments of mainstream media. Discussion includes a primer on the roots of political remix video and its use in movements for social justice, the open source movement, and your rights in the digital commons. Hands on workshop introduces the free tools necessary to download media content before the Google bots remove it, and how to convert and use it for fair use purposes. The workshop will be led by members of B Media, a community-based video art collective that uses political remix video, documentary films, and skill-building workshops in their work for social justice.
