I took some time today to geek out about the 'No Straight Lines: Four Decades of Queer Comics’ anthology coming June 2012, to share a bit about my employment history covering comics culture and to give a shout-out to +Rick Marshall.

Thanks for the shout-out, Daniela! I'm looking forward to reading your reviews. You're also providing some much-needed encouragement for me to start doing the same... ;)

SIGNAL BOOST: Join me in donating to support the release of "Dear White People," a "satire about being a black face in a very white place.”

DEAR WHITE PEOPLE follows the stories of four black students at an Ivy League college where a riot breaks out over a popular “African American” themed party thrown by white students. With tongue planted firmly in cheek, the film will explore racial identity in “post-racial” America while weaving a universal story of forging one’s unique path in the world.

Please consider donating and sharing. Thanks <3

My PSA for media professionals after receiving some pretty idiotic feedback regarding a facebook post I recently made about diversity.

I find that I've been using Google+ more to lurk/for research than actually posting anything. I'm not sure yet if that's a good thing or a bad thing. In any case, I want to try posting more original content here and see if that changes anything about my experience. Here's a summary of my recent foray into lazy but high-impact youth activism and how you can do it too: http://www.blog.danielacapistrano.com/2012/01/19/easy-activism-invite-a-teen-to-shadow-your-co-worker/

Can't find your post about it here on Google+ but I just read your great piece "On My Radar: GFS (Ghetto Film School) MasterClass Series, Live Google+ Hangout with Lee Daniels" on Daniela's Lair http://www.blog.danielacapistrano.com/2012/01/30/on-my-radar-gfs-ghetto-film-school-master-class-series-live-google-hangout-with-lee-daniels/. Like you, I've followed and adore GFS and I'm really psyched to see Fellow ulumna Gloria Alvarez moderating the series. As I'm sure you know Soledad O'Brien is featuring today on CNN The Boiling Point.

Introduction
Daniela Capistrano is an artist, activist and media professional. She most recently worked for Al Jazeera America as Interim Swing Producer, Digital Content and Community, a unique staff role providing support across multiple departments. Her last day was September 1, 2013, so that Daniela can focus on DCAP Media.

Daniela is Founder & CEO of DCAP Media LLC. She is also the founder of the POC (people of color) Zine Project, which went on tour through 20 cities from October 3 - November 9, 2013.

In 2013, Daniela (with POCZP) participated at LA Zine Fest, Chicago Zine Fest, Atlanta Zine Fest, DC Zine Fest and helped coordinate youth workshops across the country. Daniela also presented at the 2013 Allied Media Conference in Detroit. 

In 2012, Daniela participated as a panelist at mediabistro's first annual Social Curation Summit.  She also moderated Paper Tiger Television's panel on radical media during their 30th anniversary conference at The New School.

In 2010, Daniela was interim Senior Producer at Tr3sMTVMúsica y Más, supporting the channel's rebrand and site migration. She also produced artist profiles at SXSW in Austin, TX, for Uncensored Interview.

From 2006 - 2009, Daniela produced content for all screens as a member of the MTV News team. Her title was Associate Producer, MTV News. In this capacity, Daniela traveled with her colleagues across the country to support production for the MTV Video Music Awards, MTV Movie Awards, Lollapalooza and the 2009 Presidential Inauguration in D.C.

While at 1515, she honed her skills as a shooter, blogger, podcaster, rich media editor and social media strategist. Daniela left MTV News in August of 2009 to pursue her own creative goals. 

She was invited to speak at the '09 BlogHer conference in Chicago, where she was interviewed for the PBS documentary, Digital Nation.

Since 2005, Daniela has freelanced as a multi-platform producer, director, writer and camera lady. Daniela is skilled in many facets of traditional and new media production and prides herself on the ability to successfully predict their points of convergence (Yes, she is a big geek).

Daniela was a consultant with Vision Education & Media and The LAMP, a media studies major at The New School and a mentor for Big Brothers Big Sisters. She now devotes most of her free time to POC Zine Project and preparing to adopt a teen. 

Daniela enjoys traveling, reading, film festivals, doing geeky stuff and spending time with her friends.
