Videofreex: The Art of Guerrilla Television With Andrew Ingall, Parry Teasdale, Carol Vontobel, Bart Friedman, and DeeDee Halleck

April 22, 2015 @ 7:00 pm 9:00 pm EDT

One of the pioneer production groups when consumer video was first introduced in the late 1960s, the Videofreex produced several thousand videotapes and multimedia events–training hundreds of video makers in the brand new medium. Over their nine-plus years together, the Videofreex produced several thousand videotapes, installations and multimedia events and trained hundreds of video-makers in the brand new video medium.  The first members of the group met at the Woodstock Music Festival in 1969 (taping in a muddy temporary counter culture community).  In 1971 they all relocated to Maple Tree Farm in the Catskill Mountains, which became one of the earliest media centers.  In early 1972 they launched the first pirate TV station, Lanesville TV, using a transmitter given to them by Yippee Abbie Hoffman. Presented by Andrew Ingall, Parry Teasdale, Carol Vontobel, Bart Friedman, and DeeDee Halleck. In partnership with iEAR Presents!
