hello, id prefer sunday 3pm too - i just joined this listserve, thanks for
i have a miniDVcamera with no experience shooting. ive done mass civil
disobedience but am feeling that i could be more useful this july
(and for big RNC) with a camera in my hand. im interested in learning, if
anyone has suggestions for a beginner.
i work with the harvard progressive advocacy group doing education reform
organizing, and i work with the american friends service committee doing
prison abolition organizing and legislative stuff. i do dance
choreography, emcee, and am interested in incorporating live video in a
theater black box space combining some of these elements..
anyway, i have a technical question.. my financial aid department
just hooked me up with a big computer loan, and i wanted to buy something
that i could do video editting and music making on. ive been told to buy
a mac and ive been looking between a powerbook g4 vs a g5 desktop.. i
dont know much about computers.. id rather buy a laptop, but they say the
g5 is significantly faster.. has anyone had experience with either? could
i legitimately do video editting with a powerbook g4?
thanks yall, look forward to meeting/hearing

> During the last few weeks, several IMC folks have expressed interest in seeing Cascadia Media's new "Guerrilla Media Primer". It's a great introduction to basic videography techniques, and it also covers some more interesting aspects of how to shoot video for protests, rallies and documentary purposes.
> The best day for me to be able to meet with a large group at the MassArt campus (621 Huntington Ave) to show footage is this coming Saturday or Sunday, July 10th or 11th, from 3pm-on. I have access to a space where we can fit a TON of people - if anyone is interested in getting together to watch the movie, talk about the various projects, and start planning how we can all tie in with this project please let the list know!
> Boston IMC, and the Video Collective, work through a concensus based decision making process. If either of these times if better for you, please post to the list! We'll pick the time that's best for everyone. And if everyone is split on their availability, we'll schedule another meeting at a more convenient time!
> At this point, I've heard back from 2 other people who prefered Sunday at 3pm. I also favor this time. Any other suggestions?
