Create a 2-5 minute video utilizing Found Footage (appropriated audio, video, or both). Gather video and audio footage and re-edit it in a new and different way. This piece should be a commentary, criticism, or parody of the subject you are interested in. You may also include some audio/video that you have shot yourself.
