The cut-up video remix subcategory describes clips, which have generally been produced as a critique of particular political or social circumstances and whose form tends to be more experimental in nature.
Works within this category often use stock/archival footage, especially clips which are very earnest (and according to modern sensibilities, appears naive and unconvincing solemn).
Reorderer: 'Razvan Radu' circa: 2017
This clip intercuts news footage from the 2017 political protests in Bucureşti with Rage Against the Machine's 1991 song "Killing In the Name". In doing so the protester's exclamation: "sa va fie ruşine" ("shame on you") has been made to coincide with RATM's statement: "fuck you, I won't do what you tell me". So that through its appropriation in this way sentiment, which is contained within the alternative rock classic appears to support that presented in this contemporary Romanian political protest.

Reorderer: (Javier Morales and John Michael Boling) circa: 2006
Reorderer: 'Paul Harvey Oswald' circa: 2000
Reorderer: (Martin Arnold) circa: 1998
In Martin Arnold's "Alone. Life Wastes Andy Hardy" (1998) the naïvity of a mother and son's relationship played by Fay Holden and Mickey Rooney in the 1940 film "Strike Up The Band" is transformed through backwards-and-forwards frame shuttling so that their interactions become overtly sexualised and Oedipal. (Perkins. S, 2017)
In this sequence from 'Scorpio Rising' Kenneth Anger irreverently juxtaposes shots of actor Nelson Leigh playing Jesus from the Christian TV series 'The Living Bible' (1952) with Anger's gay-biker protagonist of his 1965 film. (Perkins. S, 2017)
