MediaStorm 2013 Workshop Dates Announced

Methodology photo

We are excited to be entering into our sixth training year at MediaStorm. Each year our workshops attract leading industry professionals looking to advance their multimedia and storytelling skills. We’ve now had more than 100 participants come through our professional workshops and we continue to be humbled by how much they take away from the experience.

John Temple, now managing editor at the Washington Post, told us that our Methodology Workshop gave him, “time to stop and step into a different way of seeing journalism.” He said, “I came away inspired by what’s possible if we commit to a different way of thinking about stories.”

After taking our Storytelling Workshop, Simon Schorno, head of media relations for the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) in North America, had the following to say, “The passion of the entire MediaStorm crew for documentary storytelling, their professionalism, their willingness to share what they know and their commitment to help the team produce something we could all be proud of were outstanding.”

Each year our workshop participants remind us what an exciting time it is for our industry and how important it is to keep learning and innovating.

In 2013 we’ll be offering three Methodology, three Storytelling, and four One-day workshops at our studio in Brooklyn, NY. We are looking forward to another exciting, innovative and challenging training year. We hope you’ll be able to join us.

MediaStorm to screen Walter Astrada’s ‘Undesired’ September 30 at Galapagos Art Space

Please join us on September 30, 2010, for a screening of MediaStorm’s newest multimedia project, Undesired, by Walter Astrada.

The screening will be held at Galapagos Art Space, at 16 Main Street in Dumbo, Brooklyn. MediaStorm producers will be on hand for Q&A after the film.

Doors open at 7:30, and the film will begin at 8pm.

Please RSVP to rsvp@mediastorm.com

About the Project:
India is a diverse country, separated by class and ethnicity. But all women confront the cultural pressure to bear a son. No woman is exempt.

Society’s desire for boys originates from the belief that men make money while women, because of their expensive dowry costs, are a financial burden. As a result, there is a disregard for the lives of women and girls. From birth until old age, they face a constant threat of violence and, too frequently, death.

Since 1980, an estimated 40 million women have been “missing,” by way of abortion, neglect, or murder. The government has banned the dowry and sex selective abortions, but both practices still thrive.

Undesired tells the stories of these women and girls.

This project was made possible with support from the Alexia Foundation.

MediaStorm Methodology Workshop to be held January 10-15, 2011

We will be holding a MediaStorm Methodology Workshop January 10-15, 2011, at our offices in Brooklyn, NY. This workshop is targeted specifically at educators looking to create curricula based on our approach, for organizational leaders tasked with creating and leading multimedia departments, and for professionals looking to start their own media company or integrate MediaStorm concepts into their organization.

Over this five-day course, attendees will participate in a collaborative, fast-paced, hands-on overview of what it takes to produce successful multimedia projects. They will work closely with MediaStorm producers and interactive designers to learn the essential elements of multimedia post-production, project organization and storytelling concepts.

There will be intensive business-oriented discussions as well, critiquing aspects of developing business models that support multimedia and interactive storytelling. Attendees will leave the workshop with an understanding of all the areas they need to create a comprehensive multimedia plan and to educate others on the approach.

If you are interested in attending the Workshop, please see the site for more information and application instructions. Application deadline is November 1, 2010. If you have any questions, please contact workshops@mediastorm.com.
