Five Video Ideas

As promised, I drafted this list of FIVE video formats. I decided to use this hidden webpage so that you can directly click on videos.  At the bottom, I included a poll to see which video formats strike your fancy.

1. Animation about the detention & deportation system. We could do something in the style of “The Story of Stuff”, a UPS-like white board or even like South Park animation (see below).

Watch the full version of the Story of Stuff here.

The video above was made by a fan.

2. Public Service Announcement. This would be scripted and require actors. I have already written a treatment for a “Bicycle PSA” (child learning to ride bike, parents disappear and are replaced by ICE officer). We can explore other ideas as well.

The video above was made by DWN member org, CHIRLA.

I made the video above for a contest by Organizing for America.

3. Talking to the Camera about the SB1070 Talking Points. We already have the script and could divvy up between DWN staff and 3 local campaign staff. Each site could film something similar and I could edit them together (or just keep them as separate videos).

4. Webcam Interviews. DWN staff could interview staff from the 3 local campaigns.

5. In-person Interviews. DWN staff could interview staff from the 3 local campaigns. We could do this at the Allied Media Conference and/or US Social Forum. (Click on image to view video on another webpage).
