Our Media Policy - filming recording sharing

Dear all..

1. Media / filming/ interview Projects
Enquiries keep coming up for potential filming, recording, journalistic / media projects. Before making your own enquiry / proposal/ offer, please read the following. I've set important matters out as clear as possible, so that you (enquirer) can get a better understanding of where we are coming from on this matter, and can respect our wishes :

Past Enquirers have made the following suggestions, as part of their ideas/ proposals:

  • Their project will promote paganism and/or our meetup, give it more publicity, and let more interested people out there find us.
  • The subject matter is fascinating/ very interesting / valuable, and looks like it has not been covered much in mainstream media - so this is a golden opportunity / service.
  • They are working on a pilot/ new idea for a TV show / game show / feature / student project etc (and therefore need this material/ filming / recording from this group.

Our response:

  • The people/ world out there is already perfectly fine in finding materials and contacts about Wicca, witchcraft, paganism etc. There are literally many programmes, writeups, books..and now millions of youtube videos made and shared by both established elders and new comers and everyone inbetween.
  • The Wiccan / pagan path is not a glorious glamorous sensationalist one. There are many `mystery' aspects to it. Finding the path is a quest and an initiatory (spiritual) journey in itself.

In-House expertise on media work
The following is stated so that you can be made aware of our own in-house experiences, expertise & background in the media / journalistic realm.

  • Owner of this meetup group has been part of the Pagan, Holistic, Wiccan communities for over 20 yrs, and has given interviews / appeared in.. various main stream media (BBC, Ch4, radio, news papers, internet radios etc). He has also given interviews/ appeared in student projects in the past. He is a film maker, magazine editor, ePublisher, Video producer/Director, Writer & published author. He also has many professional friends who work in these media worlds, create/ produce materials.

2. Copyright Notice on our Photos

  • Please note..that all photos taken at our events and shared in this meetup (London woodland Witches & Outdoor Pagans) are strictly by individual permission only, and only for the purpose of promotion and publicity and for genuine sharing of personal magical experiences.
  • None of these images (taken at our events or found on this meetup) should be used in any media or professional publications/ reports / projects by others without express written permission from authorised persons of this meetup group (ie organiser/owner).
  • If in doubt, check with me before using any (ones you personally have taken) in platforms such as facebook, blogs, websites, magazines, exhibitions, other outside projects.
  • If breaches of this nature should ever occur.. I will be inclined to a) have a total ban on taking photos at our events...and /or b) delete all photo albums here in.

3. key points for Media / student / project Enquirers
(revised 30/3/15 & 23/5/16 & 31/08/16 & 17/11/16 & 1/03/17):

  • We will NOT be accommodating any visits by Journalists/ Reporters/ Photographers/ Researchers.
  • No photos/recordings of any sort during ritual is permitted . It has been intrusive, and distracting to the purpose of creating and running these magical-spiritual events.
  • We are NOT interested in being subject matter of other people's features, projects, coverage of wicca/ covens/ paganism etc.
  • We did not start these events/rituals to seek publicity. We created this meetup to bring all our existing events (that have been running since 2004) in one easily manageable system. All our other platforms also continue to function elsewhere in various mediums (blogs, facebook pages, websites, YT channel).
  • Owner/ Organiser is an experienced publisher/ Webmaster/ video producer / author/ internet marketer, and already has a multitude of Journalistic/media platforms (through which you found us!). He utilises those resources to connect with wider community.

If you are a journalist/ person, and have read this, then we hope you will respect our wishes.

Best wishes & Bright Blessings
-Mani Navasothy

Owner / creator of `London Woodland Witches & Outdoor Pagans'meetup.
