The book tracks the up-the-river swim that most members of these coops
faced as they wrestled with both giving access to expensive cameras and
editing equipment (a standard high end camera in 2003 was still $2,500
whereas today you could purchse an HD Digital Video camera for 77 bucks!)
and the slow nature of posting/hosting films on the net (again in 2003, not
everybody had even the ability to run flash technology much less video
clips past one two or three minutes).
And so as the youtube revolution allows a more solitary environment of
filmmaking, Becerra’s book champions and illustrates the importance of
banding together to create any art. Travel back to a time when these
eclectic artists could be found under one powerhouse or old brewery to
nurture digital media to life.
