Nelson Pavlosky and the kids over at FreeCulture.org are running a contest called “Bring Dead Art Back to Life!” It challengers video editors to remix, edit, or remake the 60’s movie classic, Night of the Living Dead. The movie has slipped into the public domain.
Ever wanted to bring something back from the dead? Well, you still can’t revive old Fido, but you can bring dead art back to life! Most art doesn’t make it into the history books ? in fact, it’s often seen by only a handful of people before it vanishes into dusty oblivion.
But now, thanks to a growing movement to use Creative Commons licensing and the public domain to keep art available and reusable, it’s possible to breathe new life into art that would otherwise be forgotten. Best of all, it’s legal!
