VIDEO HOOK-UPS Fundraiser and Call for Proposals

Support us on Indiegogo!

About VIDEO HOOK-UPS:

VIDEO HOOK-UPS (videohook-ups.com) will launch on Monday, January 15th 2018 as a curatorial collective and collaborative platform for experimental filmmakers, video artists, and their viewers to share work, resources, calls for submission, and upcoming events. VIDEO HOOK-UPS will not be a volunteer effort; contributors will get paid. We seek support from the arts community, family, and friends to get VIDEO HOOK-UPS off the ground and ensure the coverage of hosting costs and stipend fees.
VIDEO HOOK-UPS seeks to motivate and inspire contemporary video work through the dedicated exchange of art and ideas, bringing together the full scope of moving image today through guided tutorials that showcase a variety of techniques, surveys of art and cinema history, and interviews with video-based creatives. VIDEO HOOK-UPS strives to blur the boundaries of analog and digital video. Engaging tools and generating enriching discussion, together we will make sense of today’s moving image, including:
  • social media and video
  • organization and search of media assets
  • projection mapping
  • video synthesis
  • machinima
  • VJing
At site launch, a written interview series, annotated collection of filmmaking resources, and a calls for submission directory will all be available. VIDEO HOOK-UPS contributors will be paid per article and per tutorial video. Help us grow into a resource and community creators and viewers can count on—for the exchange of practical advice, creative inspiration, and connection.
Submit your proposal to our contributor form here, due 2/15/2018:

Dennis Cooper’s Blog: Marilyn Roxie presents … Twink Studies

Since late 2015, I have been compiling references and conducting interviews for my future book Twink Studies. Despite the plethora of writing on bears, leathermen, radical faeries and more, there is not the same level of detail out there when it comes to twinks. Twinks are variously described as “thin, smooth, and buff”, “slim or waiflike”, “unnecessarily bitchy”, or “shallow and air-headed”. With adult film titles like Man on Twink implying an inherent effeminate quality to the twink — while others promote a ‘boy next door’ dynamic — and opinion pieces stating that “being labeled a twink is like getting the scarlet letter of the gay universe”, there is clearly more to unpack than meets the eye.

For this post, I have brought together a sample of my findings so far.
