Making Media with Impact: Telling True Stories to Change the World
Despite the ever growing tsunami of TV shows, films, books, podcasts, blogs/vlogs, etc. being loosed on the world daily, it is still possible to create work that has a profound impact, sometimes even a game-changing influence, on public opinion, if one knows how to penetrate to the core of an issue and to communicate that essence by highlighting compelling real-life stories. Some of our nation's most exemplary, effective engaged media-makers share their experiences and tips. With: Ellen Schneider, Director/Founder of Active Voice; Amy Korngiebel, Director of Distribution for the progressive documentary company, Brave New Films, and an Emmy and Peabody award-winning producer; Andrew Revkin, Strategic Adviser for Environmental and Science Journalism at the National Geographic Society. Hosted by Jeremy Kagan, award-winning director/producer, USC film professor, founder of the Change-Making Media Lab, former Artistic Director at the Sundance Institute.
