Media that Matters Conference 2014

Our pc partners are doing lots of great things in 2014 and we’re happy to be in the mix. In a few short weeks, we’ll be front and center as The Center for Media and Social Impact at American University (CMSi) hosts their 10th Annual Media that Matters (MTM) Conference.

Held each year, the MTM Conference is designed for established and aspiring filmmakers, nonprofit communication leaders, funders, and students who want to learn and share cutting-edge practices to make their media matter. This year the conference will take the form of various workshop options. The two-day conference will be held February 6-7, 2014.

We’re honored to be partnering with CMSi for this year’s conference and are doubly excited to share that our own Felicia Pride, who is a CMSi Fellow, will head up one of the opening night workshops. The workshop, entitled Incorporating Transmedia Theory in Your Media Project, will focus on dissecting transmedia, a concept that remains elusive in spite of having quickly become an industry buzzword.

The session will allow participants to explore how transmedia can be incorporated into various aspects of media making including research & development, world-building, cross-platform engagement, participation/co-creation, and immersion. The goal being to better engage audiences and extend the reach and life of your story.

If you haven’t signed up to attend the conference yet, not to worry, it’s not too late. Just click here for more information about registration. We’re hoping that you will join us, but whether you’ll be able to attend in person or not, be sure to follow the conversation in real time on social media using the hashtag, #MTMDC.
