Real2Reel Vol2 videos available now

13-09-2004 17:40


It's been over a year since the release of the first compilation of Real2Reel videos. Now a second volume is available and feature 14 videos produced between September 2003 and September 2004. All the content is provided under the Creative Commons licence which means you are free (and encouraged) to copy and distribute the content as long as it isn't done for commercial purposes. Most of these videos have been available to download as modem friendly, low bandwidth versions from Indymedia UK. However, now they are available as a screening quality PAL MPEG1 VCD, which is compatible with most DVD players. The CD is also PC FRIENDLY and HTML enriched to provide access to additional content such as audio files.

It's been a difficult period for Real2Reel. We had our nice big external hard drive blown up at DSEi, our camera and all it's accesories stolen the day before an eviction attempt at the Wombles occupied social centre and then our minidisc recorder stolen at another social centre. But somehow, we've manged to continue covering grassroot direct action and protest in one form or another. We hope to get more focused in the near future and put together some more indepth issue based stuff as well as our more usual feel good shorts. Hope you find them useful...

Our website can be found via where you can find out further information about Real2Reel. To get in touch, email or phone phone 07050 618445. If you fancy donating some money to help us cover expenses and maintain our equipment, cheques can be sent payable to Real2Reel c/o PO Box 77, Totnes, Devon or contact us for bank account details.

Black September

13-09-2004 07:01

September brings back memories of atrocities ranging from 9/11/01, to the CIA's involvement in the coup that installed General Pinochet in Chile (9/11/73), and to the massacre of Sabra and Shatila on 9/15/82. These tragedies are demonstrably intertwined beyond the coincidences of date and that they claimed similar numbers of civilian victims.
