Everything is a Remix: The Force Awakens is Not a Conspiracy Theory is a feature-length documentary released in episodes. The remix method of copying, transforming and combining is definitely used in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, as well as the other works of JJ Abrams. Is remixing a weak point in The Force Awakens? Is the remix method growing stale? Have we reached the limits of remixing?
This is Not a Conspiracy Theory is the work of filmmaker, writer, speaker Kirby Ferguson, known for his popular online series Everything Is a Remix. Loved by fans for his ability to break down complex cultural, political, scientific, historical and tech subjects into simple ideas, This is Not a Conspiracy Theory features the same ambitious storytelling, extensive research, visual complexity, and hand-crafted rigor that his supporters have come to expect and enjoy. This project is an experiment in paid content delivery and continues his exploration of the episodic storytelling format.
Kirby is a frequent speaker on creativity, technology, and media and has presented at TED, SXSW, The Festival of Dangerous Ideas, Google, Netflix, the GEL Conference, Creative Mornings NYC, Columbia University, NYU, The Cusp Conference, Media Evolution, The Creators Project, Campus Party Mexico City, and more.
