I made a movie!

…starring our photocopier, as it can act a whole lot better than me. Thanks to Moby for allowing me to use the splendid track “18” on this, and to Lianne for clicking repeatedly.

BTW: As Mark Twain would likely have tweeted – had I more time, I would have uploaded a shorter video. If you do, have a go at the TUC 60 second video contest on YouTube, which I’ve missed by a mere 150%.

Pls to share (thanks!):

  1. First time I’ve come across your blog. Love the film!
    I’ve made some amateurish efforts on film with young members in UNISON which are on youtube at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BeqYSqawEeU
    and at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=92sgMXddnj4
    The latter one I’m especially proud of as it’s forced some BNP fascist goon to post a reply video which really exposes their islamophobia – makes me feel like we’ve touched a nerve!
    I admire the simplicity of your film and its message – it’s good to see creativity is alive and well in the union movement!

  2. Cheers Gary – yes, saw your films after you left a comment at strongerunions.org – thought the BNP one was a really good idea and made really clear – no wonder it annoyed them 😉

  3. Hi John,

    Love the film. I’ve put a link into it from our local amicus union website.
    I’m writting to ask if I can actually use the film on the website directly (that
    would look so much cooler). Please let me know if this is OK.

    Best wishes,

    Cathy Salkield

  4. Great stuff John – really clever. I would love to play this video at induction meetings. However HR will probably say …

    When is “Cogs 2”.
