The concept of the REMIx is a dangerous one. Especially dangerous only if you don’t know what it is, what it means, or why people are saying things like “Talent Imitates, Genius Steals.”
So, in case you missed the original LIVE version of chasejarvisLIVE: the REMIX episode with Mike Relm, we have delivered you with some re-watch goods once again. As always, the rewatch episode is not the complete show and you miss out on the chance to interact with us LIVE, however there’s still a veritable cornucopia of deep, important, even controversial info here for your devouring.

Interesting topic. I can argue both sides….but how about I toss in another curve ball.
What if the remix is actually “better” than the original. Example:
I would never have known or wanted to see the Disney movie Wall-E….but “if” it was like this trailer spoof I would:
Combo of two trailers – best elements of both.
The spilled coffee coming back up to the cup, was a Film School standard back in the 1970s. Everything Old ls is New again 🙂 🙂
If you hold the camera up-side-down for filming and reverse the film tail to head for projection the action takes place in reverse. Digital make many things easier now-a-days 🙂
I keep getting an error message when trying to sign up for your email newsletter.
there error i get is “There was a problem processing your submission.”
why not have the remixer get permission from the original content creator before they “share” the remix? or, the remixer could create their own original content and/or collaborate with others who can? also, when someone like mike receives financial compensation for his work does the original content creator get royalties? very interesting topic that i think will be a dominate subject in the years to come.
I think this is a very important topic and I’m glad you are approaching it in such a thoughtful way. I am seriously torn on this subject, and I suspect that the vast majority of your audience is as well.
I think it’s hard to be objective when this is something discussed by a world class photographer and a mix artist as talented as the one showcased here. In other words, he really adds value to the work.
The problem is that this really doesn’t represent the situation as it exists in the real world (and as someone who’s had another artist “re-interpret” their work), I can assure you that this is so unusual as to have been noteworthy to the producers of the movie Iron Man. In most cases, the new work is less than the original, but who is to be the judge or arbiter in these cases?
On one hand, I see a huge amount of creativity that could come from a loosening of the current Copyright laws, but I also see that the original artists could be hesitant to display their best work for fear it would be ripped off.
Tough topic. I don’t have any solution, but I do think we (as a community) need to talk about this.
Seems fitting to share here.
