In the studio: Addictive TV remix Slumdog Millionaire

Thu 15.01.2009

This footage shows Addictive TV's Graham & Tolly at work in the studio as they discuss their movie remix of Slumdog Millionaire, a brand new smash hit by Danny Boyle, who also directed Trainspotting. This is followed by the remix itself – the very latest ‘alternative trailer’ to hit our screens from the London-based audiovisual rhythm kings. Now showing in cinemas, the award-winning Slumdog Millionaire movie charts the adventures of an underdog street kid from Mumbai who becomes a contestant on the Indian version of Who Wants to be a Millionaire?. Leading figures in this field Addictive TV were brought in to apply their mash-up treatment by Pathé, and so set about creating the remix by sampling and reconstructing sounds and images from the film – check it out… Note how the intro is purely AV: that the music is visual and composed only from what you see, hence the multi-screen approach, plus look out for some neat DVJ scratching of the creepy game show host!
