Support Marin TV This Holiday Season!

"Giving Tuesday" starts the Holiday Giving Season. Please consider helping us grow Marin TV as a vital source for local media!

The Community Media Center of Marin has been working hard for over 7 years, starting as a scrappy DIY Media Center to become an increasingly vital resource to the residents of Marin. With our Marin TV channels, we are an enabler for government transparency, bringing your local and county government officials right into your living room. Our educational channel gives you learning resources you can’t get elsewhere and provides our schools and students a vehicle for sharing their projects with the community. Our community channel gives everyone in Marin a voice without the threat of censorship. It’s truly the only First Amendment TV. And our media center gives all residents the training they need to produce their own programs with free access to the tools of production and distribution. The center also provides a space where Marin artists come to share their work, films, and voices with the community.

Support CMCM on #GivingTuesday

December 2nd is Giving Tuesday and we want to encourage you to make CMCM a part of your Holiday sharing!

The Title of Your Marin TV Series (or Special/s):

I've produced 18 "specials" for Marin TV including "'Southeast - Life in the Alaska Panhandle," "The White Bag," and "Cuba, Libre."


In a nutshell, describe your CMCM series (or special/s): 

"Southeast" is a visual essay about Alaska's remote Panhandle region; it has been viewed on 27 public access stations across the U.S. serving over 1 million households.

"The White Bag" is a spoof on the 1940s-1950s film noir "cops and robbers" and spy thrillers. It was a CMCM class project in which I play the "Ace of Spies." 

"Cuba, Libre" is a documentary that traces this history of travel to Cuba by Americans from the early decades of the 20th century until the Cuban revolution, and in the last 20-odd years since Americans resumed visits to that island nation.
