1. California Green Fire -- sample video


    from Mark Kitchell Added 73 0 0

    "California Green Fire" is built on "A Fierce Green Fire" -- filmmaker Mark Kitchell's big-picture exploration of environmental activism spanning fifty years from conservation to climate change. Now we want to bring it home, to the cutting edge where movements got started and pushed the farthest. The film will tell three environmental epics: 1) saving the redwoods; 2) the rise of organic agriculture; and 3) air pollution and clean renewable energy, from L.A. smog to climate solutions. This sample suggests what could be, for the organic story. It's only a beginning. Find out more at our website: http://californiagreenfire.com

    • Why Bother?


      from Videograin Media Added 73 0 0

      When we look around the world we see things that need to change, but sometimes they seem too big to influence. We often say - "why bother?" Yet we are called to be a witness of these things. When things seem too big to make a difference, we must remember what Jesus said in John 16:33 - "I have said these things to you, that in me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation. But take heart; I have overcome the world." & Mark 5:36 - "Jesus said 'Don't be afraid, just believe.'"

        from Vera List Center Added 73 0 0

        How can we harness collaborative culture, critical analysis, participatory technologies and aesthetics to incite social change? What content and platforms can we create that will respond to the limits and possibilities of the ever-shifting contemporary media landscape? Paper Tiger Television puts theory into practice — participants of the conference are challenged to collaboratively design prototypes for a new rrradical media, building on the ideals of non-hierarchical-participatory culture, critical analysis, activism and innovative aesthetics. A broad cross section of individuals, working together with varied proclivities, interests and abilities, opens up the potential for something truly revolutionary to develop. Media Intensive: 10:30 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. Succinct, fast-paced and provocative presentations on key topics of the design challenge: Justice & Autonomy, New Activism & Movement Building, Collectivism & Collaborative Culture, Materiality & Aesthetics Lunch: 12:00 – 1:00 p.m. Presenters and grassroots media advocates host informal discussions dedicated to conference themes. Design Challenge: 1:00 – 4:30 p.m. Groups of 8-10 participants will be challenged to collectively create prototypes for a new form of rrradical media.
