I am pleased to announce….
Shira Golding co-collaborative-producer of “Frac Attack: Dawn of the Watershed,” is making her new movie (short) available for play on public access channels during the month of Oct., just in time for Halloween!
It’s a zombie movie…. with a message!
A lighthearted and fun flick about a very serious topic.
(Just look for the “Download this Video” link and burn to DVD, etc.
If you have the ability to add “bumper graphics” at the start and end of your show, here are some suggestions:
1: Please give a link to your local anti-gas drilling group.
2: Please announce the huge regional protest in Pittsburgh, Nov 3.
Use restrictions: Please email email@example.com with the details of the showing (date, city, number of households).
For any other uses, including public performance rights, please contact the producer.
Please support independent filmmakers by purchasing an authorized copy!!!
Frac Attack was made by over 70 people in Ithaca NY and was produced as a collaboration of Shirari Industries, The Dacha Project and Shaleshock.
IF YOU HAVE NEVER played a tape on your public access channel before, here’s what you need to do…
1) Check here to see if your town has a facility which you can call: http://www.communitymedia.se/cat/linksus.htm
2) If you cannot find a listing, this means that your local cable company probably runs the access channel by default. Call your cable company and ask them how to play a tape on your public access channel.
3) If you are brand-new to public access, here are some links to help you learn more:
If you really get stuck, or your cable company gives you the run-around, feel free to contact me by phone or email:

On December 17, 2009 we were invited to screen Frac Attack for 10th Graders at the New Roots Charter School. We met up at Ithaca College to watch the movie and lead a discussion. Bryce Ness, a New Roots student, volunteered to shoot video of the Q&A. Check out the photos and video below…
New Roots Charter School “empowers young people to learn actively, think critically, solve problems creatively and collaboratively, and develop the knowledge and skills to redesign our communities for social, economic, and ecological sustainability.”
The World Premiere of Frac Attack at Cinemapolis on December 10th was a huge success! Over 180 folks came out to watch the film and participate in a lively discussion about the making of the film and the issue of natural gas drilling.
Through ticket sales, merchandising and donations, we were able to raise $600, exactly twice what we spent on making the movie! Part of the remaining $300 will be donated to Shaleshock and the rest will be used for future activist media projects. Here’s to community-supported filmmaking!
The after party at Ragmann’s was tons of fun. We danced, chowed down on food donated by Pizza Aroma and Greenstar Cooperative Market, and announced the raffle winners. Eric, who played a zombie in the movie, won the Frac Attack movie poster, Evie won the “Ithaca is Braains” T-shirt (provided at a discount by T-shirt Express), and Jerry won a zombie make-up session.
