Although I’ve no doubt seen the middle movie before I can’t remember it’s name.
As you are undoubtedly aware, attribution is not a commercial privilege to be compelled on threat of copyright infringement, but a matter of respect. I worry that CC licences are beginning to persuade everyone otherwise.
I could look up the movies of Oliver Reed on IMDB, but a title would at least provide a memorable term of reference for members of your audience (in so far as it exists).
Or will you argue that the aesthetics of your triptych would be spoilt by the appearance of a footnote?
It is possible that your Flash player provides all the details of each clip, but mine gives no clue whatsoever.
This reminds me of another disadvantage of copyright, no-one will detail the crime of their infringement (uploading a copyrighted work to YouTube without permission) for fear of compromising plausible deniability, or making the crime more visible and giving the clip a consequently shorter lifespan.
I look forward to the day when artists can build upon each other’s published work without having to pretend devotion to original thought or divine inspiration, inevitably having to disclaim any pollution of source materials through misappropriation.
If you click the YouTube video player it takes you through to the source file. Don’t shoot me down, I’m just the messenger.
I’ll add footnotes if you really want, but who get’s the attribution?
These are works of art exhibited in your gallery. Clicking through several times in order to open a new window is getting close to beware of the leopard.
And yes, you are the messenger, and should indeed be shot if you neglect appropriate credit to the sources of your message.
I still don’t know the title of the movie…
Just the title, that would do. Enough information so that the viewer has an easy clue to pursue its provenance.
E.g. (1) Aspel interview, (2) Movie title, (3) Spitting Image.
o0o0oooooh, the things I do for you Crosbie.
To save you a click through, the movie in question is “The Assassination Bureau”
IMDB entry is here.
I like your attribution format – consider it appropiated, erm, adopted rather.
Now, I can tell you how much I enjoyed your triptych.
I’ll keep ‘em coming then.
Perhaps I should take requests? Any suggestions?
Coming up is:-
Snoop Doogy Dog
Pete and Dud
…and many many more, as they say in the design business.
