Description: Skip Blumberg is considered one of the founding producers of camcorder-for-broadcast television, from the 1970’s onward. His early work features elements of “guerrilla television”, as well as a characteristic emphasis on local (particularly Chicago and New York City) politics and culture. His work has been featured on alternative platforms such as The 90s as well as a variety of art museums (including the Museum of Modern Art), PBS, and Nickelodeon. The 1981 documentary Pick Up Your Feet: The Double Dutch Show is perhaps one of his most well known productions, honored by the Museum of Television and Radio.
