Feminist Media Making
We've done it - we've funded and installed the new Feminist Media Center (FMC) in the Women's Studies Department! 16 emacs (with fast processors to do web, graphics, word processing, and bio of women labs) and 3 G5's to do all of the above plus final cut. I'm excited. Part of my vision and mission is about teaching and creating opportunity.
My hope is that my students will take what I offer and leave me in the dust. At every screening of Nobody somebody asks "Are you gonna make another?? A new, updated..." and I respond, "why don't you?? Pick up the camera and do it, and do it better than I did" So PLEASE MAKE SOME MEDIA LADIES!!!
Shouts to Favianna - a lady who is doing her thing. She does amazing graphics, posters, art... I'm buying this for the home and the FMC.
