We've all heard of remixing... But what's Remix Culture? This short video takes a remixed-view into what remix culture is, why it matters to you and me, and how it's not just a new, media-based cultural phenomenon--but a process of the universe that's been around since the beginning of time.
All clips were found online by Daniel Garcia. Writing, direction, editing, and narration were done by Gus Serrano in Sony Vegas Pro 12. Music is Champloo by Mord Fustang.
Everyone should watch this short video to understand the consequences of what goes into our daily routines, and the hidden horrors behind the privileges we take for granted. Please take just 5 minutes to watch, and share to help spread the message for those who take their lives for granted.
Following 3 characters as they perform seemingly harmless tasks of normal Western life, see the tragic consequences behind buying consumer electronics, filling a car with gasoline, and eating meat--though found footage that is 100% real and, respectably, considered legal, not harshly prosecuted, and 'humane'.
Please enjoy, be sure to watch in full quality with good sound, and PLEASE, SHARE THIS TO HELP MAKE THE WORLD A BETTER PLACE. One share and a few words is enough to make a difference, one person at a time.
[This film was originally produced for a writing class, WRIT 1122 at the University of Denver, under the instruction of Professor Matthew Hill. The project involved 'remixing' media for a cause that has meaning to us--so we tackled 3, mixing found footage with our own forte of original and interesting narrative filmmaking. Shot on a Canon 60D in 50 & 60 fps at 720p, and edited in Sony Vegas 12.]
If you're reading this right now, you're probably a cyborg--though it might be surprising, it's true. In this compelling commentary documentary, we will explore the extent to which and how this new dominating species evolved, and make the important realization that while personal devices may provide certain benefits, consistent use is dissolving the line between cyborgs and humans--diminishing the quality of human life, and eventually leading us to an unfathomably disturbing future.
This was written, directed, shot, produced, and edited by Gus Serrano as a final project for his History of Mass Media Technologies course. All footage is original, and music (besides that of Nero and Big Gigantic) was provided kindly by his close friends Davis Weimer (Harpo Speaks) and The Toy Box (Carter Matthews). A Sony Alpha DSLT A65 camera was used with a 35mm Prime and 75-300mm Telephoto, for shooting the various interviews, stock footage, and timelapses. If you have any questions, let me know!
