Subject:   Re: [GlobalRevolutionMedia] Argentine documentary looking for OWS footage
 

more info they basically came to audiovisual comission in Spain m15 movement with a story that they were a small production company out of Argentina.  based on that they tried to buy footage from the collective at super low rate ($7/second I beluve) and then later in contract discussions it came out that they were buying the footage for turner, and they started trying to insert all kinds of crazy IP clauses like future media forms etc into the contract.  so beware of dealing with them.

Hey all, 

As I wrote some days back, I was contacted by a production company from Argentina working on a documentary series who are in need of OWS footage. They have been filming stories of social/political activism around the world for an investigative journalism piece called "26 People to Save the World" and intend on coming to NY to film some more at OWS and elsewhere in the states. For full disclosure, I will be working for them as a production coordinator here in NY. 

I'm writing because they are looking for broll of the occupation and the marches so far and I agreed to pass on their request to the media group in case any of you who have been shooting have footage you'd like to offer them. They need it to be HDV 1920x1080 and although I don't know specifics regarding payment, terms of use, etc, you can contact their production coordinator in Argentina, Lorena Dabul with all these questions. Her email is lorena.dabul@gmail.com - let her know that you're writing from the media team at OWS and that you got her information from me. 

Obviously we're all involved in this occupation and this media group because of our political and artistic commitment, but this seems to me like an interesting opportunity to share the images we've been collecting with a broader audience and hopefully get some compensation for it that'll help you continue dedicating time and energies to OWS while still paying the bills. 

keep on keeping on,

Sofía
