Second week in Washington DC! Since we arrived a week ago, things have been a bit crazy and we’ve been working a lot, recording interviews, meeting awesome people and shooting b-roll shots for moneyocracy! It is great to be there, where the whole story is, and have the opportunity to discuss about the Citizens United decision with some of the most sharpest people on that matter.
We’ve invested a lot too, to make that happen and thanks to our backers, the help they’ve provided and the support they continue to offer is a great addition that make it all possible.
We’ve still a lot of work ahead, interviews and meetings will be in our schedule, as well as a “discussion/conference” at the Alliance Française of washington about political advertisement in France and the US on june 1st.
Of course we won’t make the whole project in a 2 weeks time. We have still a lot to do, and we’re planning to come back by the end of august for the Conventions and again to record interviews. For that, we’ll need your support too, and we’ll be grateful if you can spread the word about the project as much as you can.
Until then, you can check out our new piece, “Good Night and Good Luck, Moneyocracy”, a contextualized video remix about the U.S Supreme court decision Citizens United v. FEC based upon the Keith Olbermann’s special comment of January 21st, 2010.
This video remix aims to introduce the story of Citizens United v. FEC and illustrate what the consequences of this decision are. This piece will be soon translated into French (traduction française à venir ;). We hope you will enjoy it!
If you have a twitter account, tweet about it, if you have a facebook page, post it on your wall and/or share it with your friends. If you like the project (and I know you like it) don’t hesitate to communicate about it, talk about the issue if you’re an american, but also if you’re not, cause you cannot know for sure that what happened in the U.S won’t happen in your country someday. If you have any suggestions, questions or reactions don’t hesitate to reach out by sending us an email… we will answer it asap!
We hope to see you soon here and on one of our other platform and until then, take care.
