Mashup Contest 2011 Winners
The annual Mashup Contest celebrates student creativity with video and multimedia. The 2011 Contest was sponsored by Penn Libraries and the Cinema Studies Program. The contest included an online voting page for all 18 entries.
The purpose of this video was to rouse excitement for the "The Compass Teach-in, a public demonstration of student activists on several morally-ambiguous activities of Penn. The main issues focused on were our expansion into West Philadelphia, the treatment of Penn workers, and our defense research.
The goal of this Mash Up is to reveal the hopes for a dream world where there would be no fear of the impacts of climate change and end of the world prophesies, a world where people would live in the moment, peacefully as citizens of the world.
