Anti-Copyright Attacks: The Movie
0

Following up on my blog yesterday about the MPAA's manipulative initiative to further their stranglehold on copyright issues, The Daily Reel presents this timely -- and quite strange -- mashup "Pixel Pirate II: Attack of the Astro Elvis Video Clone" by two Aussie video artists who go by the names Soda_Jerk & Sam Smith.

A vibrant action remix, made up of as many pirated videos as they could find, the short version of the 1-hour project is reminiscient of Virgil Widrich's revelatory (and perhaps far superior) 2003 remix "Fast Film." I'm beginning to wonder if mashups are the preeminent visual artform for the digital age.
