Everything is a Remix - Remastered

I could have sworn that made it was on to The Stew already but I couldn't find it when I searched. So here it is. Kirby Ferguson is a writer, filmmaker, speaker who has had a few appearances on Vimeo as well as the TED stage.

In this post I wanted to highlight one of his projects, the Everything is a Remix series. Originally distributed in four parts, Everything is a Remix explores how every idea is somehow predicated on another. Whether it's movies, music, technology, etc, you can draw connections to a preexisting thought, idea, or concept. This is a remastered version that combines all four parts into one film.

I think the subject matter is really interesting especially as it relates to the creative or vocational work we do and how we're often looking for something "original." After watching this, I definitely feel inspired, like I've been given a license to "steal..."

Update: The Stew's search function is not what I'd describe as "awesome." After posting this, I eventually did find one of the originals that was posted over a year ago...

When life hands you shit in your pants...



For some reason, I love story telling accompanied by a goofy animation. It just enhances any story for me.
