EMF 461 “Video Activist Handbook” Response “The Video Activist Handbook”, by Thomas Harding read like a long set of instructions for the entry level video activist. I thought that Harding spent too many pages writing about equipment and techniques that have become obsolete. This edition of the book is only seven years old, yet almost an entire chapter was devoted to the double VCR editing suite otherwise known as linear editing. The cheapest most accessible solution for the beginning activist is a non-linear software system. The topics didn’t seem to hold up to the test of time and it was not as interesting a read as “Four Arguments for the Elimination of Television.” There are a few poignant parts of the book that made me think. I believe it was in the foreword where Harding uses a statement that sums up the reason of why one should become involved in video activism. He says that when the public knows the issues “Ignorance can no longer be used as an excuse for inactivity.”

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
