BPA instructor to work with youth producers to create Youth Media promo video

April 22, 2013 by admin in PYMC Supported Projects

PYMC will have a short piece of media produced and shot by youth to promote the importance and diversity of youth media!

Read details of BPA’s proposal below:

For the PYMC Project Stipend, Big Picture Alliance is proposing to create a 2-3 minute commercial for the Philadelphia Youth Media Collaborative that promotes the diverse activities of PYMC and the importance of youth media as defined by youth themselves. The video will be conceptualized and created through a collaboration between a media instructor and two youth from the Big Picture Alliance and PYMC Youth Council. The project will serve as a professional production experience for youth and will also serve as promotional material for Philadelphia Youth Media Collaborative. The full-circle of this project is powerful. Youth will make the media that allows them to keep making media. Included in the final deliverables will be behind-the-scenes looks of all stages of production in the form of mini-videos, photos, and /or blog posts for PYMC. The video will be shared on the PYMC website and screened at an outside

Spring Event. Once posted, there could be a social media component calling for public feedback and video reflections. Therefore this video could act as a spark for a larger conversation on youth media nation-wide.

BPA Instructor will work with 2 youth producers (one student/alum from BPA, and one from the Youth Committee) to be involved in the creation of this video. Each student will commit to 10-15 hours for two production meetings, 2 shoots, and an editing review. They will receive a stipend, as well as travel expenses and food. Once students are selected, the project will immediately enter planning stages and be finished by May 25th.
