View Full Version : Need communist inspired material (pics and video)
12th June 2003, 03:17 PM
July 26th (at the day of Oslo Summer Parade), there will be a rave at Rockefeller in Oslo. (http://www.pravdaparty.com)
The theme of the evening is communist-inspired.
So... I need videos, gif anims, pictures, the whole lot... anything which resembles old CCCP or Russia, and the communism.
I've already located a lot of interesting stuff, but I need more :)
Anyone got any links or websites?

A few of the prelinger archive films are American anti-communist progpaganda so there may be something suitable there, and the stuff can be used however you like and is available in various different formats.
Its a shame there arent many more internet resources of that size!

Wow, that is such a great theme for a party - I wish I would have the opportunity to mix there.
Don't forget to get some inspiration from russian art, and russian futurist stuff and take a look at all the communist websites on the web.

I did a hardcore party with DJ's from the USSR geared to a communism theme a few years back. I have the whole night on video. PM me your shipping address, and I'll send you a VCD or two with some really crazy stuff.

You may like this a lot:
It is about president of Venezuela Hugo Chavez transforming our country in to Cuba, that is why he appears holding hans with Fidel Castro.
Beside having soviet content you are going to be very avangard!

Yeah I did a great party that had the same theme for DJ vadim's last tour (russian percussion) I used a it of stuff from prelinger, also I did a google image search and dug up LOADS of great old russian propaganda posters that not only was I able to take into premiere and make loads of clips from but also inspired me with ideas for other stuff I could shoot or model in 3d myself. Wish I had have more time to prep only landed the gig a week prior. Anyways thats my recommendation, I'm sure you'll do well :)

you might also want to look at Eisenstein's films (spelling?).. particularly October, but also Battleship Potemkin, as these kind of document the october revolution and the rebellion in the navy (fictional films, but obviously based on life).. one of the greatest film makers ever, and worked with the communist regime.. mostly made in 1920s and 30s, b/w stuff.. well worth a look I would think.
you could maybe also borrow a copy of Lenin's writings or Marx's stuff and find some nice quotes to use as text if you are that way inclined.. or look on a quotations website to find some
(Lenins main piece of writing is, I think, called 'What is to be done?')

especially the one with using quotes from Marx
The Prelinger archive has already been raided hehe :)
Keep on posting if you have any more ideas, please
Anything will help
Thanks in advance

great one Kriel : ))
Irios, maybe you could animate some texts from MANIFESTO OF THE COMMUNIST PARTY. 1848 // Marx + Engels... (googlize it, there are tons of downloads)

well, I don't have any communist paraphenalia, but I am a communist. (or should I say enlightened communist..there is a difference)
So if you want a communist VJ, I'm available..:D

Sergei Eisensten did a bunch of other films not just about the revolution, but about industry, agriculture, and the leaders of the party. I think you'll probably find most can be found online.
Also look for Dziga Vertov.

Hehe Moprh, i was gonna mention the DJ Vadim tour aswell.
I would suggest maybe getting some footage from the old film metrolpolis ... that has some rather odd communist themes -
