Facebook Anthem

Set to Billy Joel’s “We Didn’t Start the Fire.” Someone may have posted this earlier in the semester, but relevance demands another look. Expresses some of the angst I think we are all feeling about Facebook.

Hey everyone, here‘s a link to a collection of fan-produced remix videos that obsessively record every utterance of a certain word or phrase in a certain movie or TV show. The most recent one of these that got widespread linkage was a video of Shia LeBeouf saying “No” about a hundred times. Enjoy.

Import Video Clips into iMovie

Someone just let me know that it took 4 hours to import their footage into iMovie. iMovie wants to convert any video it uses into raw dv, and this process can take a huge amount of time.

But there is a way to get around it.

  1. Create an iMovie project, if you haven’t already.
  2. Close iMovie.
  3. Right-click on the project file and choose “Show Package Contents.”
  4. Browse to the Media folder.
  5. Place your clips in the folder.
  6. Open your iMovie project.
  7. Click the VIEW TRASH button.
  8. Drag your clips to the clips pane.

I’ve been able to do this with .mov, .dv and .mpg.

A Remix We Should All Know About

I came across this vid and think it best to share, because it applies to EVERYTHING that we’ve been talking about recently: media, video game consoles, remix videos, Apple Inc., etc. etc.

Predator Rap

I stumbled across this a week ago and I think it’s a nice example of combining “found” media with artistic creativity. It goes beyond combining multiple forms of media—it combines the creative (the rap) with the lines from the film. I’m very impressed by this, and if I had more time I would like to attempt this with another movie. (I know the clip is a little long, but you’ll get the gist of it after about a minute or two so don’t fee like you need to watch the entire clip).

Sally and Melissa’s Remix Video

A parody of a parody?
“Patrolling Borders” examines the tropes of the Hollywood narrative — examining which tropes are mocked, questioning why we feel to desire to criticize them while they apparently provide us with pleasure on some level. Also, does “Super Troopers” work as a parody in and of itself — and if yes, why was it not marketed as one?

They have a T-Rex!

We are Elliot Gay and Laria Hambleton, and this is our remix video.

Creator’s Note:
The idea behind this was to show how within the realms of the remix video, people can alter the meanings of not only entire movies, but specific moments within the movie. For instance, Muldoon’s use of his phrase “Clever Girl” is used as a way of acknowledging the raptor’s intelligence in the actual movie. Here, it’s used to acknowledge the young girl and her hacking abilities.

In anycase, enough rambling. Enjoy!

The Truth

As videos are being disseminated at an accelerating pace, we are exposed to various conflicting subjective views pertaining to the same topic.This video attempts to express the way that media can effect one’s perception of foreign countries or ideals. We chose Argentina simply because Mica is from Argentina and questions the way that it is framed by both popular culture and academia within the US. We decided to call the video The Truth since we derived much of our inspiration for it from a clever political advertisement in which two conflicting points of view are presented. We do not claim that our video is the only truth, it presents just two of many truths. We tried to juxtapose a very happy view of the country with one tinged by revolt, corruption, violence and Argentinean Nazi propaganda. We set out to make people question the factual robustness of the information that they acquire through various mediums.

After watching the video ask yourself this question. Do you know Argentina?

In short, our video is a mashup of the film Independence Day with music that seemed more appropriate for a zany (and apparently sci-fi) romantic comedy. We then edited shots, dialogue, and recorded narration to suit any trailer for a Rob Reiner-directed romantic comedy (only infinitely and purposefully worse than Rob Reiner – more like if Roland Emmerich decided to make a romantic comedy). The result is, we hope, hilarious.

Our goal was not, as in the case of the mashup for The Shining, to completely change the tone of the source material, but rather to highlight under the signifiers of romantic comedy the frivolity that Independence Day seems to exhibit as a sci-fi/action genre film. We believe our video accomplished these goals inasmuch that Independence, our mashup film, seems to distort the story of the original film into a romantic comedy (we’ll let you see who falls in love with whom). Moreover, it doesn’t seem to take itself seriously, much like the original source material. To see exactly what we mean, check out the original Independence Day trailer and the British television version of the trailer.
