For our project, we plan to edit together popular news footage from only the perspective of people of color. We grabbed the idea from an artist, Dylan Marron, who has been taking movies and editing them down to only include lines spoken by people of color to highlight how these roles are usually minimal, if there at all. In this way, our videos will also dub over the images of POC newscasters, leaders, etc. with white public commentary (such as youtube video comments, tweets, facebook posts) to mimic the ways in which white voice dominates national news coverage. Each video will cover a different topic, ranging from conversations around the presidential election to New York fashion week.
