I am in agreement with Marisa that Current should send their own crew and announce their intentions at the opening of any WG meeting they want to film.

Recording and more importantly ARCHIVING of working group meetings by the media WG is a separate matter and should not be crossed with trying to capture footage, license/brand and do a favor to an outside production company. I concur that capturing the work and passion of WG's, for archival purposes is critical but if the media WG approaches this as an "attribution" opportunity we are choosing the wrong path to building trust.

Thanks Cari. The facilitation meeting is at 4 and direct democracy training 530-7. I will not be able to be there.

If anyone can shoot b-cam and another for audio (boom if poss) connect with Cari. Cari, send me your number if you want to help you coord on the phone.

As per usual, it is everyone's right to be filmed as much as it is anyone's not to. Spread the word that this is the most effective way to have transparency, if we shoot things ourselves and license to bigger outlets.

At 5:30 Lisa will ask those who don't want to be filmed can be in a section of the room off camera. At 4pm say you're with the media working group and ask if anyone does not wish to be filmed let you know so you can be cropped out. It is everyones right to be filmed as well as not be filmed.

Get there early.

if it is shot by OWS crew and sent to them as a package then more
control would be with OWS
attribution or not

i do not understand nor do i believe there were solid reasons stated
for having vangaurd shoot it - especially if vangaurd is not

i will be there tomorrow and can shoot it on a 1080i cam
sound back up would be good though
let me know if i need to do that - what is decided by everyone
