Ever since the first print zine for The Radvocate came out, I had a vision for an accompanying video magazine as well. Because of the amount of work it takes to put the print versions together, along with personal commitments, it was only recently that I was finally able to focus on it. It takes a lot of work and there were quite a few hiccups. The first episode was kind of a cop out; it was just random footage I had shot on my trip to Europe. Episode 2 is still rough around the edges and has a long way to go, but it is much closer to the ultimate goal of what I envision the video magazine can become. Special thanks to the contributors involved: New Best Thing, Margaret Noble, So Say We All, Gene Galang, Juliet Escoria, Beta Lion, and their assorted video teams.
Essentially, RVM works the same way the print version of The Radvocate does: people can submit their work (as long as it's not hateful) and it will all be edited together in different issues. The fact that it is in a different medium is something that I hope will open up The Radvocate to a wider audience, and give it much more room for creative growth. But don't worry, the print issues aren't going anywhere! Although the release date isn't concrete yet, I am hoping that we will be able to release our eleventh issue before the end of the year. So for now, please enjoy Episode 2 and give us any kind of feedback if you like. If you're interested in contributing to Episode 3, the process is the same: send me an e-mail with your idea or video work and we can go from there.
Thanks for your support and stay rad,
