You've heard us talk about it on air. Now it's time for YOU to submit an Uncommon Economic Indicator video to our contest.
Why a contest? We've enjoyed reading and hearing your observations on the recession. Now we want to see them. By screening the finalists to our live WNYC audience and to the larger audience with Rooftop Films, together we are telling the story about how the economy is affecting all of us.
The incentive may attract budding film makers, but we're not looking for high gloss. What's important is that your video is a personal observation on an event, behavior or change caused by the economic crises. Use the recording equipment you have, think about how to tell us what you know, and send in the video.
