Twenty-Eighth Busiversary (2018-19)
Once again Flying Focus producers and other volunteers come out from behind the
cameras to introduce clips from the shows produced over the previous year (Nov
2018-Oct 2019). The Flying Focus Video Bus premiered in November, 1991 and the
"Busiversary" has marked each year by showing who's making these videos for
social change and why they think the content is so important. This year of the
13 unique programs (made up of 26 episodes) there were two shows apiece, about
Israel/Palestine, US policy in Venezuela, police accountability, and the wisdom
of Rev. Osagyefo Sekou. The second show from Rev. Sekou's talk focused on his
thankfulness that "Antifa Activists Saved My Life." There were also four shows
about war and peace and nuclear issues, and one featuring Dr. Randy Woodley, a
Native American activist/author who is also a Christian minister.
In the two-part Twenty-Eighth Busiversary, producers Barb Greene and Dan
Handelman introduce the clips with help from field coordinator PC Peri (who
recorded all or part of 9 of the shows), contributing videographer Joe Anybody
(whose footage along with PC's looked at the 100th anniversary of Armistice
Day), and guest host Sam Bouman of KBOO-FM (who co-hosted a show about the
civilian police review board having a finding affirmed by Portland City
Council). Behind-the-scenes clips show the crew of the Busiversary to help
demystify TV production and encourage more people to get involved.
The show marked 28 years since the Video Bus premiered in November, 1991.The Busiversary was
produced by Dan Handelman.
