Creating Social Impact through Story in a Transmedia World
A two-day seminar
The Firelight Media Producers' Lab & Open Society Foundations (OSI) cordially invites emerging producers and directors who have a work-in-progress to apply to the the latest seminar: "Creating Social Impact through Story in a Transmedia World." Over the course of two days, broadcasters, programmers, independents, executives, and community organizers will explore how social and transmedia has: diversified media content, altered means of production, and broadened platforms of distribution.
The seminar strives to uncover thoughtful answers to questions such as: What is the role of public media, historical and social issue content, and independent producers in this rapidly shifting environment? Are there places where producers of social justice content and transmedia content providers meet?
Panel topics include The Documentary Channel, Frontline, PBS, Producer of "Bully", a Story Leads to Action workshop around "The New Black", a presentation by Donald Thoms, a pitch panel, and a workshop by award-winning camerman, Bradford Young!

All applications must be received Monday, April 27, 2012 by 5:00pm (EST). Download a copy of the application here.
