Community-based media and 'WonderRoot TV'
The music video above, "Night of the Knife" by the local band Cassavetes, was included in the very first episode of "WonderRoot TV." Expect more from episode two — including a spotlight on the Disregardables, a local punk act, and a visit with Dosa Kim at his recent Beep Beep Gallery opening — premiering tomorrow night, Wed., April 1 at 8 p.m at WonderRoot.
Each 30-minute program, featuring short art films, animation, music videos, and profiles on local artists and musicians, is comprised of original footage (shot and edited by WR volunteers) as well as submissions collected via an open call to the community. The final product is then broadcast on cable every Thursday on channel 24 People TV Atlanta. ("WonderRoot TV," episode one is also available online at YouTube in four separate parts.) WonderRoot hosts a screening on the first Wednesday of every month.
If you're an aspiring filmmaker, animation artist, or a local band working on a music video, here's your opportunity to get on TV. Interested? If so, WonderRoot has scheduled an informational meeting about the program Thursday at 7 p.m.
