I spent the majority of this evening cutting the first trailer for:
'Junct: The Trashing of Higher Ed. in America
Here is a sneak peek of what's to come.
Monday, January 23, 2012
Well overdue for an update on ‘Junct, so I will keep it to the bare minimum for those that actually have been keeping tabs. Everything on my end as far as video work is completely caught up and catalogued. I suspect at some point in the near future I will be taking a field trip to the national archives once the groundwork is laid out for the film. There is also one more interview I would like to secure (if possible) but it will come down to time, money and the subject being willing to be interviewed. I truly believe if we score that interview (along with some news footage I hope to acquire) it will be what we need to push ‘Junct over the top.
Dare I say I see the end in sight?
In the meantime there are a couple panels happening within the next couple of months. This Saturday in Washington DC my partner in crime DLS will be speaking at a NFM event about:
Some of the other speakers include people we’ve already interviewed for the documentary. As far as I know I will not be in attendance but I strongly urge those of you interested in the topic and native to the DC area to go register and check it out.
The weekend of March 17th DLS and I will be back in New York City for this year’s Left Forum at Pace University. As of right now I do not have the exact date and time that our panel is on but we will be screening more excepts from ‘Junct as well as answering questions about the film. Also slated to be on our panel is the filmmaker of Default: The Student Loan, A representative from NFM, Someone from the Free University Movement (no link that I’m aware of), plus one other person. The tentative topic will be Occupy the University. As the date draws closer I’ll post more information along with a concrete list of speakers for our panel.
On a somewhat related note I was informed that Michael Moore would be attending the Left Forum. How funny would that be if he actually sat in on our panel? If that happens I will try to sneak a picture of him to post on the twitter feed.
