Mission

Paper Tiger has been creating fun, funky, investigative,
compelling and truly alternative media since 1981! The programs
produced at PTTV have inspired media-savvy community productions and
activism around the world. Our archive includes shows that provide
critical analysis of media, educate about the communications industry
and highlight issues that are absent from mainstream information
sources. Through the distribution of our short documentary programs,
media literacy/video production workshops, community screenings and
grassroots advocacy, PTTV works to expose and challenge the corporate
control of media. Because of the bias and misrepresentation of issues
in mainstream media it is critical to include diverse perspectives in
the process of making media. PTTV strives to increase awareness of how
media can be used to affect social change. A public that can
strategically and creatively use the media is necessary for a more
equitable and healthy democracy.

Paper Tiger Online Video and Archive

Central to our strategic repositioning as a new media source we are beginning an ambitious innovative approach to video distribution through the Internet. Efforts will be made to raise papertiger.org’s Internet profile to become the go-to site for video that features smart and sassy media art, activism, and academic analysis.

PTTV will produce a series of new studio shows to offer perspectives alternative to those in conventional mainstream media. In the spirit of the PTTV’s pioneering work in the early 80s, these show will provide a spontaneous and creative challenge to both the form and content of traditional television. The productions will include in-depth media and cultural analysis for broadcast on cable access and distribution to universities, art institions and community organizations.

Last year the collective launched a long-term plan to strategically reposition itself in today’s new media environment. Smart, irreverent, and insightful analysis of a quickly changing media landscape, as pioneered by PTTV in 1981, is still relevant and the need, if anything, has increased. The format of the new Paper Tiger studio show combines the classic approach to studio show production with a model that incorporates an innovative use of current media technology.

Population(s) Served

In the third year of our ambitious archive cataloguing project, we will continue to create accurate and thorough descriptions of all of our 330 productions which we will use to update our online database. We will create a record of the condition and restoration needs of individual tapes and will work to expand our database parameters by adding keyword search terms and integrating our online ordering system with our contact database.
