This webtext shares our inventional processes of remediating Joyce Locke Carter's 2016 College on Composition and Communication (CCCC) Chair's Address as a video to be posted on YouTube. We first historicize remediations of CCCC Chair's Addresses and then provide some context for Joyce's address. The bulk of this webtext shares the invention practices and processes of two students in Michael Faris's 2016 two-week New Media Rhetoric graduate course, Sarah E. Austin and Erica M. Stone, who were tasked with creating a video of the address. This webtext focuses on particular tensions that arose as they remediated the live address, especially tensions between convention and disruption and issues with technological impasses as Sarah and Erica learned to use Adobe Premiere Pro. We conclude with takeaways regarding learning new production technologies, collaboration and mentorship, and new media scholarship.
