I am very excited to be attending Merging Media’s Transmedia Seminar and Lab happening April 28-29, 2011.
The seminar and lab provide a framework for Transmedia business and creative development as well as explores ways to identify and develop the operative idea of multi-platform production. I am really excited to benefit from Anita’s invaluable business advice and creative development tips at this inspiring event.
The two day hands on lab covers full cycle of development, writing, production & distribution from “Conception to Consumption”.
The Seminar is open to professionals from all media sectors and is suitable for practitioners who are curious about transmedia and want to learn more or know about it and are seeking a framework to continue the development of their transmedia programs.
Check out this promotional video we did to create buzz for the event.
North Shore Welcoming Action Committee’s groundbreaking Picture Diversity Photo Contest, which challenged residents to photographically represent an inclusive society, sparked an interest in diversity on the North Shore. The committee hopes to build on the widespread awareness generated by Picture Diversity as it unveils the second phase of the project.
Small Acts Big Impacts will illustrate how community members can assist newcomers in building connections and attachments. The videos feature newcomers to the North Shore, and explore the question, “what small things can we do every day that make newcomers feel more connected to our communities and workplaces?”
“Video can be a compelling and digestible means for learning and finding inspiration.” says Jody Johnson, NSWAC coordinator, “these videos will provide viewers something to consider and, hopefully, to adopt into their daily lives. The development of communities that are welcoming and truly inclusive involves everyone.”
The Picture Diversity initiative is managed by the North Shore Multicultural Society on behalf of the North Shore Welcoming Action Committee and made possible through funding from the Government of Canada and the Province of BC.
