The first ever DIY film/zine tour? This April Andrew Dickson and Al Burian will be hitting the road with the feature film “Good Grief” and the book “Burn Collector” for a month and a half long tour. ^ They’ll be armed with a video projector, screen, and sound system; the event is not limited to theaters. The tour venues will run the gamut from film festivals and college shows, to independent theaters and rock clubs, even record stores and bookstores. Al will be reading from his recently published book of the first 9 Burn Collector zines, while Andrew will be showing his first feature film “Good Grief.” ^ In addition to copies of “Good Grief” on VHS, “Good Grief” t-shirts, the “Burn Collector” book and issues 10 and 11, for sale will be a multitude of zines about filmmaking and independent media. These events may serve as a forum for examining the idea of independent media, even inspiring and connecting artists who are infiltrating and subverting the corporate media landscape. If not, it will at least be a good time.
