Film Director Lets You Decide the Price for His New Doc

Imagine if Radiohead's "pay what you want" model could be applied to everything in life?

Okay, it's not at all realistic, but sometimes we do get lucky.

Director Brett Gaylor's new film, RiP: A remix manifesto, which features controversial mash-up musician Girl Talk (an artist worth checking out live if you ever have the chance), is employing the "In Rainbows" model.

RiP made its U.S. debut at South by Southwest in March and explores copyright issues in the digital age in a really creative and fun way.

To learn more about RiP, check out today's article.

  2. This is such an inventive approach to film distribution! I'm going to head over to the site and download it, I'm feeling around $6.99 worth of generosity today. Great to know about it, thanks for the tip!
