FSTV Issues Call for Stringers at DNC/RNC
Join an ad-hoc volunteer collective of doc filmmakers, camerapersons and FCP editors to videotape, edit and produce 2 cinema verite documentaries of all the protests, person-in-the-street interviews, and delegate conversations, during the Democratic National Convention in Denver from August 24-28 and during the Republican National Convention in St. Paul-Minneapolis from Sept 1-4. Hundreds of thousands of Americans will be protesting and demonstrating against the funding of deadly wars with our tax money, the slide into the worst economic situation since the Great Depression, and the erosion of our civil liberties.
Camerapersons with handheld HDV or DV cameras will shoot footage during the day, runners will bring back mini-DV or mini-HDV tapes to our editing facility in each city where digitizing of videoclips and editing will take place 24/7. When each cinema verite doc is finished, it will be streamed on many websites, will be uplinked onto satellite, and then DVD copies will be made to be distributed to media outlets around the world before November 3rd.
Please contact ASAP if you are interested in participating in this important project.
