Throwing down at the Multimedia Slam
Dozens of youth media producers gathered last weekend in New York for the second annual Digital Waves Youth Media Festival – a day-long extravaganza of workshops, hands-on activities, and talks – all capped off with a multimedia slam and (what else?) a music party/performance/live beat boxing happening.
GPRX Director Jones Franzel offered "Telling A Good Story: How To Get from Idea, to Pitch, to Public," to help youth producers come up with story ideas, a framework to hold it all together and a plan for bringing the work to the world. Couldn't make it? Check out Jones' presentation online to help walk you through, and download this handy .pdf worksheet to bring it all together.
Not that there was any doubt, but youth producers are doing some *amazing* work.
