Donations: reminder to give money and why

  • We are a video collective/ Community media project

Local collective that films stuff in the activist community

  • We do peer learning/ SHaring Skills and resources
  • We believe that there is a strong need for independent media, sharing resources so that the voice of the unheard will be heard.
  • Sharing stories that are not reported by mainstream media, or not well reported
  • We think everyone is capable of making good films
  • We do activist media but not only; We'd like to allow for folks to tell stories from their unique points of view
  • Nothing is more subversive than your imagination, so we believe that our project is revolutionary
  • What we've done so far: Videos for the Omni (crowdfunding one shot walkthrough of the omni) / Protests, working with OGC + Documentary on gentrification, Pedie video
  • We are renting a room dedicated to media post production
  • Why this event:
    • we want you to join/ signup sheet [optikallusionsannounce]
    • We are raising money for more production and post production equipment, renting room, etc.


We owe rent, not a sustainable situation We can install same thing as sudo humans so we don't need to collect money every month We need a bank account ASAP
