Walking On Eggshells

So good! This is a stimulating 24 minute documentary in which artists from writers to musicians to painters discuss modern culture and "appropriation, creative influence, re-use and intellectual property in the remix age." (Jonathon Letham talking about culture references in Bugs Bunny cartoons will hit home with several generations.) The artists have fascinating points of view.

The filmmakers Jacob Albert, Ryan Beauchamp, and Brendan Schlagel created this film as their final project for the seminar "Intellectual Property in the Digital Age" at Yale University.

Available on YouTube in 3 parts. All worthwhile.
