In conjunction with The UpTake and The UnConvention, we have just launched a new video project: I Approve This Message. The project is similar in scope to the Tell Us a Story About the Suburbs video project we did for Worlds Away. We want you to tell us what questions you’d like to ask the presidential candidates or delegates at the Republican or Democratic conventions. What questions aren’t being asked that should be? Who isn’t asking them?
There are already a handful of submissions.
The Walker is, of course, a non-partisan organization, and we’ve project is open to people of all political stripes. There are some rules: no endorsing or trashing specific candidates, and the video must be free of profanity and other objectionable material. Think of the children. All of the project rules, information on submitting and submitted videos can be found here: theunconvention.com/iapprove.
Don’t know how to make a video? We’ve got workshops on video editing for this project over the summer. We’ll be showing the best videos periodically in the Walker, as well as highlighting them on TheUnConvention.com and TheUpTake.org. We’re working on some other venues and ways to show the videos to sweeten the deal, too.
