Video Sniffin No.1: the commercial is an advertisement for free-media made by hijacking signals being broadcast by wireless CCTV cameras (aka video-sniffing or war-spying). Momentum Arts commissioned this experimental film as part of their arts regeneration project Being Here and forms part of the body of surveillance filmmaking I explored while a part of MediaShed. Made with homeless young people from Southend YMCA and local school students interested in video technology; with help from and music by Hybernation. Free-media is about finding new applications for available technology and encompasses 'open' approaches to both software and hardware.
