Looking for examples of two types of found footage film/ compilation video.
I'm teaching a class in this subject, and need as many ideas as possible for media to include in the following two categories:
1. Music videos, commercials or other pop culture media which uses archival footage (see Michael Jackson's Man In The Mirror video
for example) for referential but not strictly documentary purposes. I am not looking for recommendations to full length features like Baraka
or traditional historical documentaries that rely on such imagery, like Ken Burns' Baseball
. Think kitschy black and white era stuff used for "silly" effects.
2. Internet based mash-ups and cut-ups. Anything that was published online that is a collage of previously produced video (or digital media) work. Of special interest: media of this type that is produced with an ideological purpose, not purely for humor. I have few ideas for this, but one example would be this one
. I hope to discover that this is a flourishing area, that media sharing technology has enabled political dissection and dissemination of dominant media.
