Vidding History: This project is set up to document the experiences of many of the foremothers of vidding: that is, the community of pre-digital, live-action media vidders who were creating between 1975 – 1995. Current interviewees include: Kandy Fong, Sandy and Rache of the Media Cannibals, and Morgan Dawn. We would like to have as many vidders as possible involved in this project; if you were vidding before computers or before 1995 and are interested in being interviewed, please contact the Vidding committee. (An edited version of the interview with Sandy and Rache of the Media Cannibals was published in Transformative Works and Cultures, Issue 6, 2011.)
