Occupy CalArts Documentary

My thesis film highlights four CalArts students including myself. Each of our stories are very different, but we have all had common experiences in that we feel bullied by the university — by tactics to wear us down, to run out the clock and deny us access to administrators — all the while banking on students graduating and moving on and thus, administrators are not held accountable for their actions. I’d like to share “The CalArts Story” with you and others in a documentary film. That is why I am fighting for my student rights.

CalArts did you know our tuition pays for 70% of our operational cost? The administration takes the other 30%. Yes, that right the admin only raise enough money to pay there own salaries and of course their international travel! #oneartschool

    Have been all over campus filming for Occupy CalArts Documentary, and just now able to post about last night’s public panel meeting and here is a bit of what I wasn’t able to film:

    After I went to the trouble of renting cameras and lighting and sound equipment, CalArts refused to let me film the open public q&a session last night and yesterday.
  • All I got were some pics &vzero audio but that makes it part of the story –blockage and more blockage has been part of my doc
  • Holly Eskew I could understand not wanting camera’s in the student focus group, but an open public forum should be allowed to be filmed.

  • Holly Eskew yes, yes, yes, we got plenty of undercover audio and all that, but legally, it be best if CalArts would cooperate with me. I had no problem with them requesting me not to film the Student Focus Group, but a public forum should be open to documentation. #calarts#thisishowwefeel

      April 24 at 5:44pm Russ Myers You could do it on the affect student debt has on individuals (starting in High School, psychology, career decisions, finance, college choice, etc..) and add the “occupy” as a psychological point. Student debt (every college & university) is a very serious issue and the real story has not been told well………..yet.

    • Holly Eskew One important thing to mention is that I’ve been asking for a grievance appeal for 6 months without any progress. Since Occupy CalArts the Provost has written me and given her approval for my appeal to move forward. OCCUPY CALARTS IS WORKING

      I can’t believe what this girl is giving to our student body: she organized Occupy CalArts, got a meeting with the President, CFO & Provost on day one. She created a gesture of transparency (see her plastic wrap in my post) and she’s been on a cleansing since this began. Lydia Marie Hicks fasting broke today with a VICTORY!
