Flashdance vs. Wargames- a 1983 Video Mashup

Mon Dec 03, 2007 00:00

Flashdance vs. War Games- a 1983 Video Mashup Call
Deadline: Monday, December 3, 2007.

A young man finds a back door into a military central computer in which reality is confused with game playing, possibly starting World War III. A Pittsburgh woman with two jobs as a welder and an exotic dancer wants to get into ballet school. Who will come out on top?

It’s up to you, masters of mash up…

InterAccess Electronic Media Arts Centre in Toronto is celebrating their upcoming 25th anniversary in style, with the annual POWER BAR party on December 7, 2007. This year’s theme embodies the 80s, with beer, ‘za (pizza for you traditionalists), Atari, leg warmers, and the two greatest movies of……well, 1983: Flashdance and War Games.

InterAccess is looking for artists to submit a mashup video of the films, to projected in the windows of the gallery during the party.

What’s a mashup?

Wikepedia says: Mashup, bootleg or bastard pop, is a musical genre which, in its purest form, consists of the combination of the music from one song with the a cappella from another. Ideally, the music and vocals belong to completely different styles/genres generally considered to be incompatible, yet skillfully and artfully combined into a pleasurably euphonic hybrid.

A video mashup is the combination of multiple sources of video—which usually have no relevance with each other—into a derivative work often lampooning its component sources, or another text. They are one of the latest genre of mashups, and are gaining popularity.

So hurry up! Pit Matthew Broderick and Jennifer Beals against each other and see who comes out alive (or dancing)

Something happens when she hears the's her freedom. It's her fire. It's her life.

All submissions will be screened, just make sure they are 10 minutes or less and on DVD or via internet (quicktime file., etc) only…oh, and there are no artist fees for this one, but you will, however, be left with a warm sensation in your heart. And if you show up to the party, you’ll get a free beer and a slice of that ‘za….what a feeling.
