Thirtieth Busiversary (2020-21)

Flying Focus Video Collective, celebrating 30 years of producing video for social change, presented its annual retrospective of its weekly series, the Flying Focus Video Bus, in November 2021. The "Thirtieth Busiversary" features program producers Dan Handelman and Barb Greene and field coordinator PC Peri discussing the 12 new shows (made up of 24 episodes) produced between November 2020 and October 2021. This show is designed to show viewers that we are just ordinary people producing video for social change and to explain why the shows matter.

In part 1, three shows cover multicultural issues (Juneteenth, Black and Indigenous Lives, Justice and Education Reform), three others cover police accountability (Training Advisory Council, Police Oversight and Shootings/Lawsuits). Part 2 covers foreign affairs/war and peace (American Iranian Town Hall, David Swanson on WW III), civil rights (Sarah Mirk on Guantanamo), Health Care (a 2019 conference/rally in Portland), environmental justice (Tom Hastings testimony on Zenith 5), and workers' issues (three May Day events on one show).

Despite-- or because of--- COVID, three of the shows were edited from footage recorded before the pandemic, five were recorded mostly using internet connections, and four were recorded in the field during the past year and a half.

The host segments were recorded in a classroom at Open Signal/Portland Community Media in Northeast Portland with other input from remote connections in North and Southeast Portland. Director Moss Drake who connected the remote sites together, has guest appearances on both shows. The Busiversary was produced by Dan Handelman.
