Soda_Jerk worked in collaboration with Sam Smith for over 4 years to complete Hollywood Burn, it is an anti-copyright epic constructed from hundreds of samples pirated from the Hollywood archive.
The year is 3001 and in their moon lab, the pixel pirates have devised a plan to go back to 1955 to create an Elvis Presley video-clone in order to fight the tyrant Moses and his copyright commandments. Watch Elvis fight back against the evil leaders of copyright and the repressive anti-remix regime.
Expect an all star cast and a kickass sound track.
Soda_Jerk is a two-person art collective who work at the intersection of documentary and speculative fiction. They are fundamentally interested in the politics of images: how they circulate, whom they benefit, and how they can be undone. Predominantly working with video, their sample-based projects have also taken the form of cut-up texts, manifestos, screensavers and lecture performance. Formed in Sydney in 2002, they have been based in New York since 2012.
