Thirteenth Busiversary (2003-2004)

The Flying Focus Video Collective marked 13 years since our weekly half-hour program premiered on November 18, 1991 in the "Thirteenth Busiversary." These two episodes feature seven volunteer producers who created 15 shows (cablecast as 24 programs) from December, 2003 to October, 2004. Flying Focus members, usually unseen behind the scenes, come before the cameras to introduce clips from their shows, frequently interviewed by field footage coordinator PC Peri in the host segments. New producers in 2003-04 included Daniel Goldman and Morgan Currie. Returning were Barb Greene, Martin Evans, Caley Haaken- Heymann and Daniel Webb.

Other volunteers also appear on the show in various capacities, in person or represented by programs they contributed to by videotaping, interviewing or assisting in editing. 2004 featured quite a number of shows revolving around the occupation of Iraq; the Israel/Palestine situation (three shows feature [1] an American woman from a progressive think tank [2] an Israeli former soldier who refused to serve in Lebanon and supports others who refuse to serve in the occupied territories and [3] a Christian Palestinian minister); and "organizing for change" (nonviolent communication, anger management, and cultural conflicts).

Other shows included alternative media guru Dee Dee Halleck, two labor rallies, a talk on the health effects of Depleted Uranium, the keynote speaker at a conference on "War, Peace and the Media," environmental activist Derrick Jensen, tax expert David Cay Johnston, and Flying Focus' friend Yvonne Simmons reporting on a Women in Black international conference. This program was partially edited on our Macintosh G4 computer and was compiled by Flying Focus founding member Dan Handelman.
