Sticky’s Zine Fair – my first DIY video effort

March 15th, 2010 by marcus

I’ve recently started a low budget DIY video series for the ABC arts gateway web site. Basically, it’s not meant to be television – just taking a camera with me on my travels and filming stuff that seems a little interesting and editing it on my home computer.

On the same weekend Melbourne celebrated the opening the Wheeler Centre for Books Writing and Ideas but I wasn’t invited to that. So instead, in trying to keep up with all things literary, I decided to head underground (literally!) and check out the diverse and random world of DIY publishing at Melbourne’s annual zine fair.

As you can see I’m still getting the hang of this lo-fi, DIY video thing. Somewhere between the wrong camera settings and some encoding and compression blips, the quality is a little shit. But it’s a work in progress. More coming soon.

Read the full story on the ABC web site.

    I can’t wait to see your videography still improve Marcus :P

    Thanks for taking on the underground Degraves (depraved?!) zine scene!

    I was there on that day with a bunch of mates selling our zine ‘A Fistful of Buttons’ so thanks for the video because I’ve just stolen it for our own blog, http://fistfulofbuttons.blogspot.com/ haha.
    It was a great day and lots of fun :)

    Also, all out zines get posted on the site in .pdf form if anyone wants to have a look.
