About Marilyn Roxie

VIDEO HOOK-UPS ( will launch on Monday, January 15th 2018 as a curatorial collective and collaborative platform for experimental filmmakers, video artists, and their viewers to share work, resources, calls for submission, and upcoming events. VIDEO HOOK-UPS will not be a volunteer effort; contributors will get paid. We seek support from the arts community, family, and friends to get VIDEO HOOK-UPS off the ground and ensure the coverage of hosting costs and stipend fees.

VIDEO HOOK-UPS seeks to motivate and inspire contemporary video work through the dedicated exchange of art and ideas, bringing together the full scope of moving image today through guided tutorials that showcase a variety of techniques, surveys of art and cinema history, and interviews with video-based creatives.

VIDEO HOOK-UPS strives to blur the boundaries of analog and digital video. Engaging tools and generating enriching discussion, together we will make sense of today’s moving image, including:
  • social media and video
  • organization and search of media assets
  • projection mapping
  • machinima
  • VJing
  • video synthesis
At site launch, a written interview series, annotated collection of filmmaking resources, and a calls for submission directory will all be available. VIDEO HOOK-UPS contributors will be paid per article and per tutorial video. Help us grow into a resource and community creators and viewers can count on—for the exchange of practical advice, creative inspiration, and connection.

About collective founder Marilyn Roxie:
I am an independent filmmaker currently attending England’s Manchester Metropolitan University. As a student, I have curated Video Art Exploring the Margins of Gender and Sexuality for the Center for Sex and Culture in San Francisco and LUDWIG in Berlin, the fall 2016 San Francisco State University digital video student showcase for Artists’ Television Access, and look-to-the-future-past for isthisit? online.

My own work has been displayed in juried exhibitions Chaostrophy: Artworks Inspired by Coil at LUDWIG and Re/Action at the Associated Students’ Art Gallery at San Francisco State University. I have directed music videos for Pictureplane, Natural Snow Buildings, Vukovar, DYR FASER, and Momus. Themes I explore include androgyny, queer subculture, glitch, and the relationship of found image versus creative authorship.
Outside of the field of video, my work includes the genderqueer flag I designed in 2010, my online experimental music label Vupiano Records, and my upcoming book on gay sexuality, Twink Studies, as featured on Dennis Cooper’s blog.
