Renegade Photo Shoots: NYC 2012 Presents EXTREME TOURISM

Join when you can--if you can find us!

Like the debut Renegade Photo Shoots: NYC 2007, we're hitting Manhattan from all angles. This time with vectors V(ideo), X, Y and Z.

Please read if you are joining Oct 24

It's video.
It's photos.
It's multimedia smirky production!

We're combining forces with the NYC GoPro Meetup and fab producer Keith Hopkin--creative visionary and angle opportunist.

"Extreme Tourism"

* We're making a video, we're making collective and individual portfolios
* We're starring in the video, we're recording the video
* We're taking the photos, we're posing for the photos
* We're real tourists, we're fake tourists

SPECIAL Guests: Michael, Nelson and Jason doing some TRICKs

What's on tap for the day:
This is a full day exploration and exploitation of Amedika's own Mecca of Tourism -- NYC. As a group we'll trek on foot and by public transport to a variety of cultural hotspots. We'll act out, film out and mix with the locals. This will be a whirlwind tourist tour de force and you are welcome to spend the day with us or join when you can. Keith's a local so he's carrying the map!

What to bring:
- still cameras, video cameras, memory cards, variety of lenses (tripods to be avoided: it's NY after all) 
- pocket change for subway, taxi and other transport 
- pocket change for personal knish needs 
- dress in layers and wear comfy walking shoes
- business cards, your art to show and share 
- standard fare NYC tourist props (I heart NY t-shirt, Bloomies shopping bag, Duane Reade coupon booklet, old school fold-out map)

Checklist for before you join us:
- identify and tag all your gear (name, email and cell #--maybe even where you are staying) 
- bring the Chief Renegade's cell # and the Chief Videographer's cell #  
- join the Twitter group (TBD) and Facebook page (TBD) so you can upload and tag en route 
- get your foursquare set-up (or similar)
