Fair Use Video of the Month

The Center for Social Media would like to welcome Elisa Kreisinger as a contributor to our blog!  Elisa is "a feminist video remixer making better stories about women that don't revolve around men (or babies!) through remix storytelling."  You can check out her work, including her most popular remix work of Sex and the City at her website.

Here, she offers her choice for fair use video of the month. If you love it and feel inspired to make your own video, check out our Code of Best Practices in Online Video and Elisa's free remix resources and start remixing!
