“Supercuts” are video montages that isolate the repetition of a specific element, such as a word, phrase or action from one or many films. This Friday, Rich Juzwiak and Duncan Robson, creators of some of the internet’s most celebrated supercuts, will discuss their budding genre at a special panel discussion at the Museum of the Moving Image. Juzwiak, a media critic and blogger, writes for Gawker. His seminal supercut, “I’m Not Here to Make Friends,” is a collection of this phrase spoken by contestants on dozens of reality television shows. Robson, a British animator and visual effects artist, made “Let’s Enhance” (above) in 2009. He lives in San Francisco where he is working on a new project, “Percussive Maintenance.”
