Respond/Remix/Spread

For this video remix assignment, you’ll be creating a response video to a remix/mashup video of your choice. This means that the first part of this assignment is exploration–explore youtube, vimeo, and other video hosting services to locate a video that inspires you to respond to it. Please include a link to the video you’re responding to when you submit your video on Canvas.

Some things to keep in mind:

  • Think about how your video is entering into a conversation with the video you are responding to, both in terms of content and in terms of aesthetic choices. (And think also about how the video you’re responding to may itself be a response to an ongoing remix conversation!)
  • You do not need to use only downloaded footage for this assignment; this would be a good opportunity to begin experimenting with working with DVD footage for higher quality imagery.
  • There is no strict length limit for this assignment, but follow the guidelines listed on the Remix Guidelines sheet (i.e. 2-3 minutes in length, average of at least 30 edits per minute.)
