The Videofreex are coming (www.videofreex.com)!   Over their nine-plus years together, the Videofreex produced several thousand videotapes, installations and multimedia events and trained hundreds of video-makers in the brand new video medium.  The first members of the group met at the Woodstock Music Festival in 1969 (taping in a muddy temporary counter culture community).  In 1971 they all relocated to Maple Tree Farm, in the Catskill Mountains, which became one of the earliest media centers.  In early 1972 they launched the first pirate TV station, Lanesville TV, using a transmitter given to them by Yippee Abbie Hoffman.  Without regard for the status quo of broadcast TV or for independent filmmaking, they strove to find out what was unique to the new medium and passionately broke new creative ground.
