Lone Star Video Primers Help Promote Chapter Agenda

The Sierra Club's Lone Star Chapter, which maintains a LoneStarSierraClub video page on YouTube, recently produced two videos for the current Texas Legislative session, which meets every two years from January 13-June 1. Both videos were produced and directed by Chapter Communications Coordinator Donna Hoffman.

Visit Your Legislator!, hosted by Chapter Conservation Director Cyrus Reed, above, is a primer on meeting in person with your legislator, starring chapter activists Terry Moore, Don Villa, and Roy Waley as they pay a visit to State Representative Elliott Naishtat at the State Capitol in Austin. But the methods and strategies outlined in this how-to video are applicable no matter where you live.

Legislative Priorities, below, also hosted by Reed, features guest appearances by Chapter Director Ken Kramer, Conservation Chair Evelyn Merz, and Air Quality Chair Brandt Mannchen, talking about specific chapter priorities.

As activists of all stripes increasingly communicate in the video medium, both of these videos are instructive for Club chapters and activists wishing to jump on the YouTube bandwagon. Bottom line: shooting and editing a video on a budget and uploading it to YouTube are a lot easier than you may think.
