The Remix My Lit project is entering into its final phase. Whilst you can still remix the stories at the website (and so you should), August 30th will see the whole thing climax at a killer live remixing event as part of the Festival of Melbourne.
Guests at the festival have been invited to bring their laptop or mobile phone and be part of a live multimedia remix event at Federation Square, where they can freely remix your work.
Remixers will find copies of the stories on the day or can access them in advance at the website – they can re-imagine and remix them – and then send the remixed short story to a mobile phone number. Using the Fed Sq SMS TV system the RML team will be publishing this flash fiction on the big screen at Federation Square as part of a live A/V set by “.M.”
Readings of the original stories have also been recorded by .M. and will be incorporated into her set, which will also feature video images inspired by the stories.
All works created on the day will be posted to the Remix My Lit website and considered for publication in an upcoming, associated, print anthology.
If you are going to be in Melbourne for the festival we would love to see you at the event:
Date: Saturday 30 August 2008
Time: 3.30pm – 4.30pm
Venue: Federation Square – The Big Screen in the Plaza
