These short videos are a brief look at the kind of film "#whilewewatch" - premiering Thursday, April 26th at 8pm ET/5pm PT - will be. The screening will be on Snag Film's website, where it will be livestreamed, and viewers will be able to ask questions of the participants, some of whom are featured in these brief video clips. I'll be there, and hope to see you all there, too.

Now, the first video. Tim Pool is a journalist whose unique style of interactive broadcast journalism exists at the intersection of social and mainstream media. His live coverage has been featured by news outlets such as Reuters, MSNBC, and Al Jazeera English. Pool engages viewers as participants by combining first hand reporting and commentary via live video stream and chat, allowing the viewing public to join in the action by directly asking questions, which he responds to while reporting live.

The art of Occupy Wall Street.

Live Worldwide Premiere of "#whilewewatch" -- Thursday, April 26th, 8 pm ET/5pm PT on SnagFilms.com.

Join us for this major film debut, plus the live Q&A Session with director Kevin Breslin and "Occupy Wall Street" participants featured in the film. Questions will be taken from the global web audience during the live streaming.

A gripping portrait of the “Occupy Wall Street” media revolution, #whilewewatch is the first definitive film to emerge from Zuccotti Park – with full access and cooperation from masterminds who made #OccupyWallStreet a reality.

The #OccupyWallStreet media team had no fear of a critical city government, big corporations, hostile police, or a lagging mainstream media to tell their story. Through rain, snow, grueling days, sleeping on concrete; they pump out exhilarating ideas to the world. Fueled with little money, they rely on the power of Twitter, texting, Wi-Fi, posters, Tumblr, live streams, YouTube, Facebook, dramatic marches, drumbeats and chants. As the film unfolds, we witness a new dawn with the power of social media.
