testing downhill

Thanks to a donated hand-me-down video camera from a family member, we've started playing with the medium once again. This quick little flick is the equivalent of putting a toe in the water (in this case, a toe well ensconced in winter boots into snow) - we hope you enjoy the sentiment, and the marking of the solstice (a momentous occasion if there ever was one)

all quiet on the western front

We have been off the blog for quit some time. The main reason is, we've had a little trouble: our little video camera has, after years of faithful duty, given up the ghost. It stopped working, after other less alarming but nonetheless annoying glitches in the workings of the camera accumulated over the years.

The camera was purchased in October 2001 and did a warthog of a workout for covering many activist activities and for recording many an interview for radio free school.

So we are in the unenviable position of being a video association without video.

We will soon be making an appeal for support to go toward a new camera so we can get some more independent videos done and published for the world to see. Stay tuned...

national citizenshift

Well, it's finally taking shape, with just a few things to patch into the matrix: the National Film Board's CITIZENSHIFT web site has a dossier on unschooling, which includes some (four to be exact) very short videos produced by DIVA in partnership with Radio Free School.

The dossier is found (with more material being added) at citizen.nfb.ca/unschooling

Besides video, there is text, audio and images on the theme of unschooling.

Check em out. Be a good citizen. Or a shifty one. (Suit yourself)
