Today, online media site Hulu announced their documentary section will play host to more than 30 documentaries to check out. Among the present exclusive programs is Re:Generation Music Project, a film which follows the creation of original musical tracks remixed by such modern dance producers as The Crystal Method, DJ Premier, Pretty Lights, Mark Ronson and Skrillex. Our own Hunter Daniels recently got to sit down with The Crystal Method and Pretty Lights, as well as DJ Premier to talk about the film, which will be Hulu’s “Documentary of the Month” for March and April.
Also airing exclusively on Hulu in the near future will be Morgan Spurlock’s Comic-Con Episode IV: A Fan’s Hope. You can read a review of the film by our own Phil Brown here.
