With all that's happening in online entertainment, it's inspiring to see people take more innovative approaches to making and sharing media. Case in point, Brett Gaylor, creator of Open Source Cinema.
Long-time videoblogger, web activist, and filmmaker, Brett's most recent project is an open source documentary about copyright and remix culture. RiP: A Remix Manifesto, focuses on the state of media in the age of free-flowing information. Featuring Girl Talk, Lawrence Lessig, Gilberto Gil, and Cory Doctorow, all influential media figures, the film is set to really delve into some serious issues.
What's really cool about RiP is that it's an ongoing participatory media experiment. Brett shares all of the film footage at opensourcecinema.org, for people to remix on their web-based remix editor. You can also help create the film's soundtrack at CC Mixter. And you can of course show your support by showing some love at their screenings, organizing your very own screening, or by making a donation when you download the film.
