Optik Allusions is a community media project based in Oakland, California. We share resources, skills and knowledge to tell stories that might otherwise remain untold.
We learn by doing. We teach eachother. We make films in a spirit of collaboration, inclusivity and solidarity, maintain a film equipment library for creative projects, organize free, at cost or donation-based workshops, and host film screenings.
If you like to make videos or want to become a member, come to our tuesday meetings at 7 pm! We're open and happy to welcome you, no matter your experience level.
