This Remix Manifesto is a must watch on this topic!

The concept is really good (and this tune is certainly catchy...)

Fergal, thanks for that!

 

Ron - did you hit the playlist button and watch some of the others?  I love "You are beautiful" and will use this in a class for sure. 

The main idea is also that this sort of thing could be done by students. Maybe not a full edit of  a video but they could use a music video and write a "literal script".  I think that would be a very powerful lesson/activity.

It's great stuff, really - I have a Professor at UMass (conducting a course on Hip-hop Pedagogy) who'd be very interested in the Remix Manifesto.

:D :D You're Beautiful is hilarious!

 

Many parts of Penny Lane are scrambled for me... perhaps because I am viewing it from the US?

This post of mine - I think is relevant here.  Also, the original version of the film - A Remix Manifesto can be found there...
