Making Free Culture With Free Software, and Designing for Remix: Digital + Analog Workshops to Make CC Movies & Collaborative Zines

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Feedback form is now closed.
In this session we'll be looking at creating Free Culture from both a digital and an analog perspective, in two concurrent workshops:

One on side, getting a hands-on introduction to making movies with Free Software, from Matt Lee of 'Orang-U: An Ape Goes To College'.
Bring a laptop running Blender, Inkscape and GIMP and a few video clips recorded from a smartphone, and learn how to use free software tools to make your own movie.

On the other side, Sam Muirhead will invite you to share stories, images and ideas around the topic 'Design for Remix.' Then, using typewriters, a rubber-stamp version control system, and a photocopier, we'll remix each others' work, and create our own individual zines from the commons we've built together.


Making free cultural works with free software
Presentation on making a feature length freely licensed movie using only freely licensed tools.
"Scott Peterson learns that his father, animal exporter Jefferson Peterson has died. In order to maintain his lifestyle and the freedom of his pet orangutan, James he agrees to attend his father's alma-mater in Boston. He uses his father's frequent donations as a barter that results in James attending college instead, while he pursues his electronics hobby and works in a bar."
Orang-U: An Ape Goes To College (2017) is a feature length movie made with free software and released under a Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike license.
Co-writer and director, Matt Lee will talk about the process and tools used to make the movie, and pose questions about the production of the upcoming sequel, Orang-U 2: Monkey Business.

Cut, Copy & Paste: use (analog!) open source collaboration to make your own Zine
Share your stories of creating, working with or remixing Free Culture - the good, the bad and the ugly.
Facilitated by Sam Muirhead, we'll be exploring what makes a work remixable, and how to design creative projects for participation... and we'll be doing it through remix and zine-making :)

Make a how-to guide, draw a picture, write a poem... Then find someone else's work to remix!
In this workshop you'll get to grips with Open Source collaboration, and its potential for limitless artistic creation. All using analog version control system tools no more complicated than scissors, rubber stamps and a photocopier.

Then you can take home your own DIY publication: a zine, built upon the work of others, but created according to your own perspective and interests.
