I've often wondered when these new media will start to be used in more powerful ways. To me, the secret of film and video is that it can permeate your brain and cause you to have emotions. These emotions can help bring new ideas to more cortical areas and move you to decision and action.
It is with this in mind that I refer you to the VoteVets.org project. In conjuction with MoveOn.org, they selected 23 videographers to each produce a 2-min vidi of a military/family person expressing themselves.
I was fortunate to have been asked to participate and to be paired up with Pamela Osborne. Rather than just embed our work here, use this link to the gallery. You will be moved.
