Explaining UK Fair Dealing with Simpsons clips
It’s been 15 years since Bucknell U film prof Eric Faden made “A Fair(y) Tale,” a short film that explains fair use by stringing together short, fair-use-qualifying clips from Disney movies. It remains an amazing accomplishment!
Fair(y) Tale took 9 months to piece together as Faden painstakingly searched the corpus of Disney animation to find the literal *mots justes* for his video explainer.
15 years later, Bournemouth’s Claudy Op Den Kamp and her students decided to create their own version of Fair(y) Tale — this one explaining UK Fair Dealing exceptions to copyright, using 380+ clips from The Simpsons.
It’s a stellar seven minutes! What’s more, thanks to tools like Playphrase, her students were able to make this short in just eight weeks!
