Last summer, when Mindy and Jonathan were planning the Remix Institute, they taped a whole bunch of episodes of So You Think You Can Dance and American Idol off the air. They talked about how the election commentary between Obama and McCain was reported on like a game or a contest and voila, the concept for Jonathan’s video remix was born. This is all Jonathan - editing and critical analysis. What a great remix it is! Here is the link to Jonathans website :http://www.rebelliouspixels.com/2008/so_you_think
The pressure is on as contestants present their positions on a range
of social and political issues then face the hard-hitting scrutiny of
our panel of judges. The audience at home will delight as candidates
are challenged in ways never seen before on television.
The mainstream media spectacle of American democracy reaches new
heights and this time with a twist. Contestants on our program are in
for a surprise: our panel of experts doesn’t exactly play by the
prescribed broadcast rules. Unlike the corporate news media of today,
which often coddles leading politicians, our judges grill each
candidate on their policies with hilarious and unexpected results.
In this week’s episode only two weeks before the general election,
Senator Obama and Senator McCain have their feet held to the fire over
shockingly similar positions on energy and foreign policy.
Who will be this season’s champion and take home the grand prize?
You’ll have to watch and decide that for yourself, then participate by
casting a vote* for your favorite performer on November 4th!
