A TRUE MOVIE FOR THE DIGITAL AGE WITH ADRENALINE-FUELED PERFORMANCES BY MASH-UP PHENOMENON GIRL TALK

“… a fun ride, filled with snazzy animations, enthusiastic talking heads and one helluva Girl Talk show” …..IndieWire

“An entertaining, thoughtful, and politically committed articulation of what the filmmaker dubs the “copyLEFT” …..PopMatters

“A knockout.” ….Maclean’s Magazine

“… [a] film that everyone should see” …..Needle Drop Magazine

Immerse yourself in the energetic, innovative and potentially illegal world of mash-up media with RiP: A remix manifesto. Let web activist Brett Gaylor and musician Greg Gillis, better known as Girl Talk, serve as your digital tour guides on a probing investigation into how culture builds upon culture in the information age.

Biomedical engineer turned live-performance sensation Girl Talk, has received immense commercial and critical success for his mind-blowing sample-based music. Utilizing technical expertise and a ferocious creative streak, Girl Talk repositions popular music to create a wild and edgy dialogue between artists from all genres and eras. But are his practices legal? Do his methods of frenetic appropriation embrace collaboration in its purest sense? Or are they infractions of creative integrity and violations of copyright?

You be the judge by watching RiP: A remix manifesto.
