Family Values: Politicians won’t stop exploiting their families as long as it wins votes. But, Leslie Bennett urges, isn’t it time for the rest of us to say, “We’re tired of being conned?”
What is an Op-Vid? Opinion, without the pundits yelling. Handmade animation, without the caricatures. Essays without the text. Complex topics, without the boring.
Op-Video is a new platform that features writers, thinkers, and doers that might otherwise contribute to an opinion page. In this series, we tackle the issues at the heart of the 2012 campaign.
The concept of Op-Vid was created by Joe Posner, an interdisciplinary artist working at the nexus of documentary filmmaking, music, and animation.
