PICTURE NEW YORK SITE LAUNCHES
Picture New York, the group mobilizing to oppose the new regulations restricting the right of filmmakers, photographers, and amateur videomakers to shoot on the streets of New York, has launched their website. The site includes information about the proposed changes as well as details of an upcoming rally and other events staged to demonstrate the community’s opposition to the rules.
They also have an online petition you can sign to register your own opposition. So far, the petition has drawn a great cross section of people, from documentarians to IA d.p.’s to people from the tourism industry.
The site also contains Juliana Luecking’s video response to the proposal which I’m embedding below.
