Hey folks. Very cool opportunity for multimedia folks. Details below.
The UnionDocs Collaborative (UDC) is a one to two-year program for twelve emerging media producers. It is both a rigorous platform for exploring contemporary approaches to the documentary arts and a process for developing an innovative group project. The program focuses on providing what we believe are the most effective educational resources for individuals at the beginning of their careers.
This year, two AIR members were a part of the program: Tina Antolini (currently a producer for State of the ReUnion) and Shawn Wen (currently an intern at This American Life). They collaboratively produced pieces with 10 other participants from a wide variety of backgrounds: social justice filmmaking, 16mm film production, a PhD candidate from Portugal focusing on "Interactive Documentary", theater, photography and other fields. This year, the collaborative's work has been shown at MoMA in New York City and the Harvard Film Archive, as well as other venues.
Right now, we're accepting applications for our 2010-2011 program. We are looking for both resident and non-resident collaborative members to begin this fall. The program will consist of master classes with visiting filmmakers, audio producers, artists, and professors, in addition to producing a year-long project.
And feel free to pass this along to anyone who you think may be interested.
And if you have any questions, feel free to email me off-list.
