NewTeeVee on Public Interest Video


Thanks to Jackson West, the forthright gentleman filmmaker-journalist, for writing about non-overtly-commercial video:

Without financial support from viewers and distributors, some of the most valuable work connecting communities and informing the public won’t be able to continue.

Alive in Baghdad, which brings the unvarnished truth from civilians in Iraq, is struggling to cover its costs. And after years of serving his local community, Chuck Olsen, unable to scare up a buyer among local media organizations, is shuttering Minnesota Stories — a model of online video aggregating, publishing and community in service of the public interest.

Please note, I think MN Stories will "rise, zombie-like" in a more community-powered fashion. I'm hoping we can get something happening by the time deep chill sets in.
