Video about project to create social media supporting global justice, around documentary "The Reckoning."
I got a last minute invite to participate in the Producers Institute for New Media Technologies all of next week in San Francisco, run by those amazing folks at the Bay Area Video Coalition. Running from May 27 to June 7, the Producers Institute for New Media Technologies "connects independent producers and their socially relevant content to emerging models of storytelling and distribution."
Through the Institute, documentary production teams from across the US, Europe, and South America spend ten days at BAVC working with technologists, designers, storytellers, and programmers to develop new models of participatory media. Mentors from leading technology companies, including Apple, Adobe, Google, Mobile Active, Phantom Compass, Pentura, Map Office and others, work in teams to design and develop working prototypes, which are presented to international funding and review panels at the end of the Institute.
Sounds like the perfect convergence of social issues, digital media, and storytelling — right up my alley. Can't wait!
