Uncommon Indicator: Energy Drinks Video

Sure, the deadline for Your Uncommon Economic Indicators Video Contest is still a whole week away (June 21st), but sometimes turning in your work early has its benefits. In this case, we feature the first video submission to our contest created specifically as an uncommon economic indicator.

F.G. Illustrated: Hala Hala's Uncommon Economic Indicator from Isaac Littlejohn Eddy.

Why a video 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.

Your video doesn't have to be fancy. Just make it 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.
