A young group of people in 1969, are set loose with cutting edge portable cameras and VTR equipment by CBS News. Cutting edge in that the recorder weighed under 100 pounds. The goal was to get in touch with current events from a different angle. This is the trailer for a proposed documentary about the adventures of this scruffy group. Certainly worth a watch. You’ll also find a link to their kickstarter page if you’d like to help. Personally, I can’t wait to see the full doc.
The intent here is not necessarily to promote the views of Alex Jones here. On the other hand, I won’t offer the disclaimer that the views presented here are not that of this author. In fact, there are more than a few things we agree about. Alex has produced quite a number of documentary films over the years. Some of his early work is a little on the rough side. Alex has roots in cable access television, and some of the early pieces do have that look.
I have to say that his recent stuff is very well produced. In fact, it’s give the work of Michael Moore a run for his money any day. I suspect if Jones had the budget of Moore earlier in his career, the shift surely would have happened earlier. No doubt there are some out there that may be offended in some way by this. I dare say that even if you dislike the message, you can’t discount the production work.
