FAST & FURIOUS GETS ADDICTIVE TV REMIX
anything with Michelle Rodriguez in it gets our support! The team from Addictive TV pitched this video to us…yeah…good stuff indeed… It is also interesting how the mash up remix culture is making its way into more mainstream areas..we think that’s the way it should be! (As long as something cool comes out of it at the end.) Have a great weekend…more soon with news for Alec Empire’s “Shivers”.
from the Addictive TV camp:
“In the wake of Addictive TV?s remix of Oscar winning Slumdog Millionaire, created at the request of director Danny Boyle and international distributors Path?, it?s now the turn of Hollywood studio Universal to commission their first movie remix with the new Vin Diesel action movie Fast & Furious – the fourth installment in the series of petrol-head action movies.
London based audiovisual artists and performers Addictive TV have made their name as trail-blazers in the art of audio/video remixing – especially when it comes to movies. Meticulously sampling everything from films to concert footage, music videos to sports events, their remixes have received praise from creative innovators like Jeff Mills, Goldie, Grandmaster Flash and the former Kraftwerk frontman Karl Bartos. The duo have remixed a number of big-budget movies for the studios including Iron Man for Paramount, Max Payne for 20th Century Fox and both Snakes on a Plane and Shoot ?Em Up for New Line Cinema, so they are now in the unique position of having created remixes for nearly every major Hollywood studio.
In their distinctive and unique style, Addictive TV?s Fast & Furious remix was made by sampling the sounds and images from the film to create a high-energy and intense audiovisual ?track’. The technique used is similar to audio sampling in the music world, but Addictive TV instead use linked pictures and sound samples to construct their dynamic mixes.
Slamming the pedal-to-the-metal, and this time fighting a shared enemy, Vin Diesel and Paul Walker re-team for the ultimate chapter of the franchise built on speed. Heading back to LA where it all began, they rejoin Michelle Rodriguez and Jordana Brewster to burn rubber, illegally race each other in exotic cars down through the mean streets of Los Angeles, and floor them across the Mexican desert in this new high-octane action-thriller.
The film goes on general release April 3rd in the US and then opens in the UK on April 10th. Co-incidently the same night Addictive TV headline London?s Cargo for Beadyman?s Battlejam night.”
