Ja se sap que venen maldades (per a uns més que per a uns altres) i la meva emissora preferida de ràdio, WFMU, tampoc se salva de la crema. Així que us deixo el documental que s’està preparant sobre l’esforç de Ken Freedman, mànager i líder de l’emissora, per tal d’evitar el colapse. Un projecte kickstarter, per tant, podeu col·laborar de forma econòmica. Més detalls:
Bring FREEFORM OR DEATH to life! Help us share the intimate story of New Jersey’s WFMU, the world’s longest-running freeform radio station, and one man’s attempt to keep it independent and alive in the face of a recession, the persistent threat of commercial media, and the challenges that come with keeping a rebellious group of outsiders together.
Much like the WFMU philosophy, FREEFORM OR DEATH is a project built upon passion and preservation. In the past, WFMU has consistently rejected any type of direct backing from governmental institutions or for-profit corporations. Most of the disk jockeys are unpaid volunteers, driven by DIY spirit to create authentic, spontaneous radio. WFMU is radio made for the people, by the people, and FREEFORM OR DEATH functions in the same vein. We are committed to making a film about independent media on our own terms, and we need your help accomplishing this.
YOUR SUPPORT WILL HELP US SHARE THIS SPECIAL STORY…
FREEFORM OR DEATH will predominately be made up of verité scenes grounded in the personal story of Ken Freedman, as well as interviews with the vibrant characters that make up the WFMU family. Additionally, there will be sequences of in-studio performances by musicians like The New Pornographers, Robin Hitchcock, Sonic Youth, Yo La Tengo, Joanna Newsom and many others.
Funds raised through Kickstarter will be directed towards completing the film. The funds will support all facets of the post-production process, most importantly, editing.
AGAIN, PLEASE HELP US BRING FREEFORM OR DEATH TO LIFE!
Remember, if we don’t reach our goal, we receive nothing. Any contribution will be fully appreciated. And, of course, all contributions will be rewarded!
