11.11.11 was interesting to say the least. Had a great time! Spent most of our time filming in the yurt that protesters built to keep dry. The Dublin Occupy is pretty small scale compared to the sister operations around the world. So we sat in on a meeting for a few hours and when the rain eventually stopped got some shots of the posters and artwork they have hung up at central bank. Starting our edit tomorrow!
Hi Irene. Yes, #OccupyMontreal was amazing. A cold day, more and more people as the afternoon turned into dusk then night. People were very welcoming and friendly. It's Montreal's book fair this week so I will be pretty busy but will edit footage as soon as I can. A girl called Vivian was especially magical.
Irene, I will relay this info at the next media work group meeting and get us on board with the rest of the OWS movement. yes we should def collaborate this event. I wish I was there in NY with the rest of you...good luck
I am not sure exactly what we the GA in St. Pete will film. I am waiting to see what the communications and media work group will decide upon but I definitely will keep you posted on what is decided. I passed along this nugget to the organizers/occupiers and are excited about the idea of filming the movement.
Hi Irene, I'd like to cover the general masses, the General Assemblies are also very interesting and give insight into a very democratic way of decision making, and occupier views. Will there be some sort of pre-documentation strategy that we will all be sharing?
