I second the recommendation on seeking out your local public access TV
station. We have one here in Boise, plus a freelance producer who does
nothing but shoot videos of bands in the TV studio...for free. He shot
all those live looping videos I posted to the group a while back, which
yielded my promo DVD and the 30 minute show that will be on air.  They
had three cameras on me, full studio board, video mixing tools, all
sorts of cool panning and fade-in/out effects, etc.  They also have
equipment that any producer can use for free after taking only three
producing/editing courses for $40 each, plus $25 for a producers card.
So, basically $145 to shoot anything you want and use your 30 minutes a
week of free airtime.  It's amazing what they air on public access
stations....all sorts of controversial stuff, experimental film,
religious and political talk shows, etc.  I think public access TV is a
great thing.

Scott - did you convert any of your looping videos to digital format? If
so, I've found several places where I've posted mine for free, and you
can do the same:

since most of the discussion has centered around
incorporating visuals w/ live looping performances
(could try slides, or get old movie projectors, that
was a pretty common thing for multi-media artists back
in 80's-90's, using found films or making your own).

one option no one has mentioned yet, is doing video
project and have it broadcast on local public access cable...i'm
currently working on project #2 for local broadcast in iowa city (IA)
area...believe me i have the cheapest of tools-crappy video camera
(which picture is fading fast-more grain the better(?)-transfer to (or
call it edit) to VHS machine and ta-da-instant crappy  (looping)
video...i sort of think of myself as the wayne's world quality of
loopers, my first project actually had 2 segments of me playing my
looper stuff live in my studio, and i was able to get two 15-min
segments, now w/ my youngest at 1 yr old, the new project has more
shorter pieces w/ the kids coming in an hitting me on the head w/
plastic shovels and stuff (just finished talking about dada and fluxus
in art apprec class, so i let anything go), and i put little
transitional pieces, mostly playing w/ the toys around the house and
have my prerecorded loop compostions playing in the background. they're
fun to work on, cheezy in a sense, but in the end, pretty cheap to do,
and hey i'm offering some alternative programming for my area. guess it
also gives me a chance to play my new handbuilt tesla/klein guitar
project also.....s--- ps-i will say the challenge of coming up w/
interesting stuff live in a looping format is hard... even on video in
my comfy cozy basement studio (and i also put some of my paintings in
the background so it's not just masonite storage doors for backdrops...)
