1. For my documentary on free culture, I've been studying a lot. More than any other person, I've studied Lawrence Lessig, CEO of Creative Commons, and his contributions to freeing sound, video, and graphics for use in the thriving market of user generated content. This is a mashup of some of his interviews.

    A little background. Lessig has given many, many presentations on his ideas about free culture. More than anything else, he celebrates the power digital technologies give to take sounds and images from the culture around us and mix them together to say something.

    In June, Lessig announced he would move on from the free culture debate and take on the problem of corruption in Washington, a corrosive issue that threatens to keep copyright and other more serious problems from getting solved. To celebrate Lessig's many achievements, I've decided to remix his own image -- maybe a little irreverently, but always with good intention and great appreciation for his work.

    Enjoy.

  2. A special thank you to Lawrence Lessig for all the great presentations he's made about the free culture movement -- and all the videos that he shows for every one. Created for his last free culture presentation at Stanford University on 31 January, 2008.

  3. A collection of humorous quotes from my trip to the ALA conference and the SPARC-ACRL forum.

    Special thanks to Andre Brown, Kimberly Douglas, Nelson Pavlosky, and Stephanie Wang for having so many clever things to say.

  4. The SPARC-ACRL Forum at ALA '08 entitled "Working with the Facebook generation: Engaging students views on access to scholarship." Panelists discuss the merits of student activism, patent reform, blogs as a communication medium for scientists, and students as active members of a discussion about the right to access information for scholarly work. Features Andre Brown, Nelson Pavlosky, Stephanie Wang, and Kimberly Douglas as panelists.

    This was great practice producing and shooting a live event. As you can see by the massive grain, there's a good reason why you should try to avoid boosting the gain whenever possible with an HD camera: it obliterates the image quality.

    Recorded 12 January, 2008 at the Pennyslvania Convention Center in Philadelphia.

Copycat Extras

Matt Agnello

Videos produced for the COPYCAT project that are not part of the web series. Since I have to review a lot of footage anyway, I decided to do something constructive with that by making something out of it. Includes trailers, blooper reels, and other content.
