ReMixology 4: The revolution will not be televised: Celebrating video Innovation with Brett Gaylor

Friday, February 25, 2011 - 23:00

Join Brett Gaylor and Vancouver's finest remixologists for an interactive talk about the future of the video on the web. Award-winning documentary maker Brett Gaylor will give us an overview of the innovative approaches to interactive online video from around the world.

Brett will also talk about his own work experimenting and developing open video tools, and discuss ways media makers and citizens might utilize open video tools and techniques. He will also lay out where he thinks the future of web video is going and the current threats and opportunities to open video. Video is an increasingly important aspect of the web -- YouTube alone serves around 1 billion videos per day. What better time to talk with one of the world's leading video innovators?


Brett Gaylor is the project lead for Mozilla’s Web Made Movies project, an open video laboratory researching the intersection of video and the web. Before working with Mozilla, Brett directed the award wining documentary RiP!: A Remix Manifesto, created, helped found, and was a key creative at the Montreal-based production house EyeSteelFilm.

Thank you for reading this story…

More people are reading than ever and unlike many news organizations, we have never put up a paywall – at rabble we’ve always believed in making our reporting and analysis free to all, while striving to make it sustainable as well. Media isn’t free to produce. rabble’s total budget is likely less than what big corporate media spend on photocopying (we kid you not!) and we do not have any major foundation, sponsor or angel investor. Our main supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help. You are what keep us sustainable. has staked its existence on you. We live or die on community support -- your support! We get hundreds of thousands of visitors and we believe in them. We believe in you. We believe people will put in what they can for the greater good. We call that sustainable.

So what is the easy answer for us? Depend on a community of visitors who care passionately about media that amplifies the voices of people struggling for change and justice. It really is that simple. When the people who visit rabble care enough to contribute a bit then it works for everyone.

And so we’re asking you if you could make a donation, right now, to help us carry forward on our mission. Make a donation today.
