For this assignment you are asked to do the following:
“The concept is to mashup something along the lines of a public apology, a commercial, a pandering political speech or anything you’d like to mock for the public good.”
I used Academy Award Acceptance Speeches from Cuba Gooding Jr, Michael Moore, and Marlon Brando (Little Feather) to create this mashup. Also, I put them over a track by Godspeed You Black Emperor, to create a haunting tone. The speeches have been cut and edited, and moved around to create a montage of overlapping clips. I wanted to highlight what Michael Moore said about fictitious times and his preference for non-fiction; Cuba’s getting utterly lost int he moment, and the touching speech by Little Feather. How much has changed in Hollywood? Are Native Americans treated any differently, or any better?
