The Guerrilla News Network's Media ®evolution
High School 1542 N Milwaukee Ave 3rd Floor

The media sucks. But you already knew that. The Guerrilla News Network doesn't just offer up another cranky complaint. In this unique multi-media presentation, the media revolutionaries from GNN tell the story of how over the course of four years they went from 300 visitors a day on their fledgling alt. news web site built from equipment cobbled together from a dying dot.com, to over 25,000 visitors today. Along the way they've produced music videos for Eminem and Ad Rock, and a series of Sundance-awarding winning political shorts that have become underground cult classics. This fall, they're releasing a new book, True Lies, a new feature documentary about Iraq, BattleGround: 21 Days on the Empire's Edge, and have a controversial feature film starring Rosario Dawson in the works. These digital Don Quixotes will share their experiences on the frontlines of the info-war, as they discuss the challenges (and opportunities) of media consolidation, the promise (and pratfalls) of low-cost digital journalism, how to get covered (the right way) by the mainstream press, and, most importantly, what tools, skills and talents you need to start your own media revolution.
