Online videoactivism is a recent audiovisual formula that allows audiovisual groups, composed by citizens fair from institutional practice, to film their own audiovisual projects, sometimes characterized with a transforming social component. The paper analyzes some experiences that follow this direction: anonymity and lack of personal recognition in the figure of the filmmaker are the main features. Malaguistán complaints with pieces distributed by Internet, about the precarious situation of infrastructure and citizen space in Malaga and with an special kind of audiovisual language that combines ways of raw narrative with a parodic edition based on irony.
