Avatar/Pocahontas Mashup from Randy Szuch on Vimeo.

I thought this mash up was interesting mainly because of the conceptual components.  The main aspect I found intriguing was that the plot of Avatar can be overlaid with practically any movie that has a white guy contacting Indians.  Many people have pointed out the similarites between Avatar and the movie, “Dances with Wolves.”

As for my definition of mash up, it is something that changes the original meaning of a work.  A mash up can be a reediting of solely one work or it can be the combination of multiple works to produce a synergism that creates something that is completely different.
