Katie's concern speaks to something Abe brought up at yesterday's meeting: what are we doing? 
Are we purely documenting, representing all our voices and messages? Or are we promoting / framing a more specific message? 

I personally like the documentary approach. I think videos of heckling police officers and more radical forms of resistance can and should be balanced with videos of meditation groups, overtly aggressive cops, and all non-radical resistance. 

I think the OccupyMedia Teams messages should be as scattered as the Occupy Wall Street Movement. And that - like the movement - points of unification will naturally emerge as we begin to work in larger numbers on longer term projects.

This is great, but I have a problem with the bit on the cops - specifically the heckling.
I don't think that's a proper reflection of what we represent, or should represent.
I know that's nit picky, but if we're posting it on our websites, I think we have to consider messaging...

Hi everyone!

The filmmakers who brought us Nobody can predict the moment of Revolution
have made a longer film, and they'd like to post it on the nycga and
occupywallstreet websites.
Can we make this happen?
