Why I "Pirate" Films | Richard Misek | TEDxUniversityofKent

vor 2 Jahren

How much does film-making today depend on found footage, and why – despite the potential for free circulation of images and ideas of the Internet - recent years have actually seen a clampdown by media owners on how, where, and when we can access film?

Richard Misek is a film-maker and academic. He was born in Liverpool, educated at Oxford, Harvard, and Warwick Universities, and worked as a video editor in London before completing a PhD at Melbourne University in 2008. His interests include montage and appropriation, cities and space, darkness and light. He is the author of the book Chromatic Cinema: a history of screen colour (Wiley-Blackwell, 2010), and his found-footage film Rohmer in Paris (2013) has been exhibited in five continents, receiving widespread critical acclaim. In 2016, he curated ‘Indefinite Visions’ at the Whitechapel Gallery, as a part of his Arts and Humanities Research Council project ‘The Audiovisual Essay’.
