Tricks of the Trade Workshops - Liz Marshall on making a community documentary

Sunday, August 28, 2011 - 16:00 to 19:00

A group workshop… To film one video, working together, in 3 hours. The emphasis will be on working together, quickly, to conceptualize and then film an artfully crafted mini documentary, which explores & unearths the concerns of the surrounding community. The goal for the video:  a tool for community outreach at the political level, to send it to local politicians and community leaders – to spark a new dialogue about the slaughterhouse; to bring to light the issues from the community. In doing so, the video should also expose the cold hard facts about slaughter: the number of pigs slaughtered each day, the conditions...

Thank you for reading this story…

More people are reading than ever and unlike many news organizations, we have never put up a paywall – at rabble we’ve always believed in making our reporting and analysis free to all, while striving to make it sustainable as well. Media isn’t free to produce. rabble’s total budget is likely less than what big corporate media spend on photocopying (we kid you not!) and we do not have any major foundation, sponsor or angel investor. Our main supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help. You are what keep us sustainable. has staked its existence on you. We live or die on community support -- your support! We get hundreds of thousands of visitors and we believe in them. We believe in you. We believe people will put in what they can for the greater good. We call that sustainable.

So what is the easy answer for us? Depend on a community of visitors who care passionately about media that amplifies the voices of people struggling for change and justice. It really is that simple. When the people who visit rabble care enough to contribute a bit then it works for everyone.

And so we’re asking you if you could make a donation, right now, to help us carry forward on our mission. Make a donation today.
