Sampling and Remixing

Donald Trump & Hillary Clinton are now Friends/Allies

Watch Video Here

All of our videos came from multiple sources off the internet. YouTube specifically has been the main source of our videos which were uploaded and created by other users. We also used other organizations such as the Huffington Post and NBC.

-The Futurama video clip is property of Fox Broadcasting Company

-The Simpson clip is property of Fox Broadcasting Company

-Video clip of Trump (“Clinton, Yes” & “I want you to be happy”) is property of PBS News Hour and was uploaded to YouTube by the company

-Video clip about Hillary stating Trump should not be in charge of the law is property of ABC 15 Arizona (News company) and was uploaded to YouTube by the company

-The SNL video clip is property of NBC

-Video clip of each candidate exchanging positive words is property of Huffington Post

The videos we used from YouTube were most likely uploaded by individuals who have an account with YouTube.

Within the Huffington Post and NBC sources they were creations of those individual organizations.

The connection we have to both political parties are not closely related, each of us in our group don’t support either candidate. The relation to each of the parties are more closely related to the seven steps to Kevin Bacon.

Because we have very little ties to the individuals in the clips we felt very little constraint when remixing the videos. Since no one in our group is strongly for or against the political candidates we felt very free to do what we wanted.

Both the Huffington Post and NBC communities are credible sources that had their own view of the individual clips that we sampled. Both sources have professional values that make them a credible source for important information. Obviously SNL (Saturday Night Live) takes a more humorous approach that magnifies each individual’s quirks and mistakes. Their values I feel are to be as “accurately humorous” as they can be, YouTube is a pool of varying opinions that allows individuals to post almost anything they want seen by others. They obviously have some values by restricting inappropriate videos/audio onto their website.

Our video takes a more humorous approach (viewing Trump and Clinton as friends rather than enemies) which would support more of SNL’s values rather than the more professional sources such as Huffington Post and NBC. Our video does take many samples out of context and would possibly offend someone, specifically the clip of Trump agreeing with Hillary that he should not be in charge of the law.

We took a more “SNL” approach towards our sampling by creating a light-hearted clip of the two competitors getting along which again, would be more in line with SNL’s values rather than the other credible sources we used.

Our video trying to view the two political competitors as friends might wound others that are completely against the other candidate. Someone might view the video that completely despises Donald Trump (Hillary Clinton for example) and would be offended.

Our video would not be considered ethical. With the fact that we are taking almost every sample out of its original context would not make it ethical.

With the information we have within the video, it would most likely not be legal because there are no sources for which we took our samples from.
