Occupy Wall Street Takes To The Airwaves [video]

“Occupy Together!” by dsauvage on Youtube

At 10:58pm on Bloomberg Television, the airwaves were occupied by this 30 second commercial promoting Occupy Together.

The commercial was made possible by a Loudsauce campaign which raised $6,278. More about the project:

This video was shot in New York City at Occupy Wall Street and produced by director David Sauvage and composer Glenn Grossman. Also jumping in was Sauvage’s longtime friend and colleague Ted Markovic, who provided them with the resources to make this happen.

Now that the first airing of the commercial has been funded, the campaign has moved on to raise a further $15,000 to air three total Occupy Wall Street TV ads.

Update – OccupyTogether.org has released a full statement regarding the appearance of their website address at the end of the video – “We, the creators and volunteers at Occupy Together, had no input or affiliation prior to the airing of this spot.”
