Josh, Michael, et al.
This sounds like exactly the project we're working on here at OnlyOneTV. We want to interview individual occupiers so they can tell the world, in their own unedited words, what this movement means to them.
We plan to shoot interviews every weekday, five days a week, here in our studio (5th Ave & 30th St --- which is a short ride on the R train from Liberty Square to 28th St).
We want to include both --- individual occupiers speaking their thoughts and feelings in a sort of soapbox style (clearly identified as their own opinions)... And on other episodes, facilitators of each of the working groups, explaining exactly what their group is about, how it functions, what are its accomplishments, challenges, goals, and needs... in their own unedited words.
We're especially interested in showcasing the aspects of direct democracy ( Facilitation ) being used. We feel like the corporate media is totally ignoring the most important aspects of what OWS is about, and what OWS is achieving.
If you know of anyone who is well-spoken and would be a great interview for this project, please contact me asap. Text or voice: 646-580-0022. Or email: firstname.lastname@example.org

Super geniuses think alike - this sort of idea was brought up a few meetings ago and there are a few folks who fit the profile. Sounds like a great project to plug the team into and get going.

I know this should probably be in the forum, sorry.
Few possible content ideas:
What about a video/livestream, where people who've been misquoted by mainstream media can tell the whole story?
This could tie into a larger idea I've had about, telling the story of individual occupiers, perhaps in a video series? Originally it scared me because I was afraid it would come off shallow and very MTV. But I think if there is a way we could approach people with respect and care it could be well done. There are so many stories behind the people who have commited themselves so fully to this movement, given up everything, to put themselves on the frontline, daily, and we need to put a camera on that. I believe that this could be the viral content we have all been waiting for, people/public who don't get it yet, will identify with voices in the movement and be compelled to support, and we've all realized that once you cross the threshold, theres no going back. It would be nice, probably easier to shoot it all ourselves, but I wonder if there might be a better/more democratic way, could we just put a call out for video and see what comes in. I was standing on the top of the plaza today looking at people who didn't really "get it" gawking at people holding signs and almost all of the cameras were pointing in. This your chance to point the camera back at the world and say, hey this is the way we see our world from all of these different viewpoints... or if we were to shoot it, I wonder if you could even make it semianonymous for the interviewee, like that 99% tumblr? Do video posts instead, and put that on our website.
