Willits is moving again into a new phase of transition. Willits is a world recognized leader in moving towards localization, sustainability, and positive growth. Sharing the vision both globally and within the local community, Willits will create the community connections necessary for the future.

I think that would be great. Michael challenged us to reconnect--with ourselves, our vision, our community, and the larger network. Time is running out and this is where we'll deal with what is to come. Getting and giving support for those who we share this vision with, would be a great gift for us all. Let's do it.

Today is Monday, May 17, 2010. I had a vision. A fancy way of saying I was struck by the thought that Willits is going to be the locus of a World in Transition Convention in 2011.

Transition Willits.

Transition World.

The pieces have begun to reveal themselves...and come together.

Hi Lane,

when you get the sound make sure you post it at the video section which is very easy to use. It may look very much like the one Richard Smith did at He took his photos and some short video footage and narrated it with some light music in the background.

Here is a slideshow from the Victoria Transition Training. Bad
photos, bad lighting, but a document nevertheless. This kind
of presentation is relatively easy to do by anyone.
Comment by lane on January 8, 2009 at 12:44pm
I have been reading that post, too. I wonder if the Transition
Initiatives are organized enough to do this kind of production.
I could probably put together some kind of interesting slide
show video. I think I have enough content.

Here are some short ones. No audio yet.

Willits friends,

This post from Bob looks right up our alley, particularly Lanny. What do you think?

The Transition Movie Needs YOU!

I am really thrilled about announcing a new initiative by the Transition Network. You've seen The End of Suburbia, The Power of Community and Crude Awakening.... Well, we now have some funding to make a film about Transition, and after much contemplation, we have come up with a way to make it which we think best reflects the Transition ethos. In essence, the idea is that rather than having one camera crew spend months trudging around the many Transition initiatives around the world, hoping fortuitously to stumble across interesting things happening just at the time they happen to turn up, the idea is instead that the initiatives themselves make the film. In the best spirit of 'We-Think' and collaborative thinking, we want Transition initiatives across the world to record their stories, their dramas, their successes and failures, for 3 months between October 1st and the end of the year. We think it will lead to the creation of a film which is truly extraordinary.

The idea is that we provide some training, some digital tapes, a Transition Movie Hotline and a great deal of support and enthusiasm, and then you produce a record of what you are up to. We are working with Smith and Watson productions, who have made a number of films for the BBC, and with independent film-maker Emma Goude, who will have the unenviable task of sorting through the mountains of footage and producing an epoch-capturing, life-changing movie from it.

We want this film to be a celebration of the possibilities of the new media at our disposal, as well as being a celebration of the amazing work you are all doing out there catalysing your communities around responses to peak oil and climate change. This is an appeal to the creativity and artistry that is out there in the Transition community. There is a lot more detail here, and a beginner's guide to filmmaking here. We will shortly announce the dates and locations of the filmmaking workshops. So, this is setting you all a challenge.... let's see what happens!! For more information contact Emma Goude on 01803 863928 (mornings only), or you can email -- from the TT UK newsletter
