The interview is not a defined method, it’s an exciting way to create social relationships.
Do you interview strangers, family members, friends, experts, celebrities, role-models, enemies?
Do you interview them on the street? In their kitchens? In their workplaces? In a studio? In a park? In a car? In a dinner?
Do you ask questions to understand the decisions of a character? To investigate the complexities of a social conflict? To find evidence for a crime? To reveal the hypocrisy of those in power? To question your own position as a media-maker? To provide clarity? To create confusion? To raise new questions?
We will brainstorm different interview goals and collaborate on developing the most effective ways to face these challenges.
For people who make films, produce podcasts, practice journalism, facilitate discussions, conduct research, teach interactions. And for everybody who wants to contribute to this entertaining learning experience.

388 Atlantic Avenue Brooklyn
In just under three weeks over 10,000 videos about Occupy Wall Street have been created and uploaded online. These videos – revealing police excess, marches, general assemblies and more formal documentaries covering the nature and processes of the movement – are helping to activate and proliferate the movement worldwide.
The Brooklyn Filmmakers Collective will host a discussion and screening looking at the practice and theory of covering a social movement through video. Four of the most viewed videos from Occupy Wall Street (with over 600,500 views to date) will be presented by the Brooklyn filmmakers who created them.
Guest moderator Martin Lucas, director of the Integrated Media Arts MFA program at Hunter College and a senior fellow at the Center for Health Media Policy, will lead a discussion on the role of video in social movements, the coverage of Occupy Wall Street, and the potential challenges of the overwhelming amount of media coming out of Occupy Wall Street today.
