The British media industry is an incestuous slag heap and the only way to the top is by climbing up on the heads of your friends. At the top of the heap the fat cat media executives are hauling in the cash whilst at the bottom the rest of us are kept broke and paranoid and then they have the nerve to steal our ideas and tell us that it's really `happening' to make films on the dole.

The `Independent' media administrators drivel on about `access' and `cultural democracy' but they've got their industry organised like the New Model Army with their gaffers, grips, script girls and focus pullers.

And wise up creatures ......the media industry learned how to defuse and appropriate underground film in the seventies, now the only radical media project is to build a totally integrated industry of our own......

THE EXPLODING CINEMA COLLECTIVE IS

  • OPEN ACCESS
    Anyone can show their work, anyone can join the collective.

  • DEMOCRATIC
    All decisions are made collectively at open meetings.

  • COMMON OWNERSHIP
    All equipment, resources and information is held in collective ownership.

  • NON-PROFIT MAKING
    ALL the money we make goes into improving our shows.

  • UNFUNDED
    We are not financed by state taxes.
