Be The Media! Workshop: Using the Web for Video Distribution

December 6, 2009 @ 12:00 pm 5:00 pm EST

Your videos can be used to build and strengthen communities; learn how to take your finished work and strategically distribute it on the Internet! We will post videos from Community Digital Storytelling Lab to the internet, demonstrating technical process and illustrating audience targets and social networking. If you have a video to post on-line, or are thinking about making one, this workshop is for you!

As part of the “Be The Media” digital storytelling workshop, a group of young Iraqi women refugees living in Albany worked with producers at The Sanctuary for Independent Media to tell their stories in “Dear Mr. X” — Community Responses to War Digital Storytelling Project, #1.

Produced by Tethkar Ahmad, Wied Jassim, Shahad Jassim, Mais Salih, and Hiba Haitham Alsaffar, with support from the Iraqi Children’s Art Exchange, Iraqi Families Project, and Branda Miller.
