Other Cinema Digital is offering a special boxset of 5 discs for only $39 (plus shipping). These are recent releases that share an energized collage approach.
Johan Grimonprez' hijacking piece sets the bar high for compilations of news footage, while TV Sheriff and Animal Charm take the low road with their hilarious cut-ups of TV and corporate video, respectively.
Plus Negativland's double-disc set of A/V remixes, and the latest SoCal-cult "collage-narrative"
from Craig Baldwin!
Selected Press Quotes
dial H-I-S-T-O-R-Y: "Exceptional for its juice, its jazzy compelling fusion of social and aesthetic issues, and its stomach-churning power." —The New York Times
"A sense of urgency and a wrenching emotional attack." —The Times (London)
Not 4 $ale: "The inimitable manic media dementia dished out by the TV Sheriff and his crazy crew is part radical Dadaist subversion, part spot-on media critique and all parts totally hilarious, outrageous remix mayhem." —Holly Willis, LA Weekly
"If TV Sheriff was an aroma, it would require all three nostrils to fully intake the exotic coagulation titled, 'Not For Sale'" —Mark Mothersbaugh, DEVO
Golden Digest: "The Charm's remix, with jumps, loops and new soundtrack either tells you what the video really meant or is simply screaming back at the original, "You suck." What's interesting about that? It's fucking hilarious." —Mike Plante, Cinemad
Our Favorite Things: "Declared heroic by their peers for refashioning culture into what the group considers to be more honest statements, Negativland suggests that refusing to be original, in the traditional sense, is the only way to make art that has any depth within commodity capitalism..." —The New York Times
Mock Up On Mu: "...an allegorical cyclone of images and ideas haunted by sardonic humor and gnostic longing..." —Erik Davis, Techgnosis
"...this new work hits your synapses like a cluster bomb, assailing your tremulous gray matter with a barrage of cinematic fragments (most recycled, some newly shot), miscellaneous rants and ruminations..." —Manohla Dargis of the New York Times
