As a producer on the new documentary, #WhileWeWatch, from Director Kevin Breslin, I have had an opportunity to dive, in a face-to-the-pavement sort of way, into the new wave of citizen media. Livestreaming, blogs, free press, immediate video uploads to youtube minutes after it is filmed. Watching arrests that seem completely unwarranted from the angel of the viewer. Spending long, coffee driven nights glue to the screen watching the police raid Oakland, Zuccotti Park and various #OccupyWallSt protests globally on Livestream and UStream. Sites you should get to know, for this is where all the action is. The 19 hour days sped by like standing at the edge of Grande Prix.
“…Reality TV on steroids.” FluxRostrum of GlobalRevolution.tv says in #WhileWeWatch.
The film takes place mostly in what was the original hub of #OccupyWallSt, Zuccotti Park, NYC. The film is so fast paced that after 40 minutes you feel like you just did 3 back to back runs at Magic Mountain.
