TV Bridge Project:  Disabilities in your Community

For this episode, we are looking for entries which focus on the experiences of people with disabilities in your neighborhoods and communities. As you write your scripts and shoot your submissions, keep a few questions in mind: What obstacles do people with disabilities face where you live? What are some ways they have succeeded in overcoming those obstacles? What organizations and groups in your community provide support to people with disabilities? And most importantly, how can you get involved?

 

Teams whose stories are showcased by the TV-Bridge will receive a "Certificate of participation in the US-Russia TV Bridge" from Eurasia Foundation.

 

In order to be considered, your video must meet the following criteria: 

  • Submissions must be no longer than three minutes.
  • Video entries must be shot specifically for the TV Bridge, and must be original works produced by the team submitting them.
  • Each team must be prepared to submit a script and HD file of their entry to SEE, and be willing to participate in the editing process of the video.

We will be accepting submissions until March 31st, 2017. Please visit the official SEE website to see the complete list of requirements as well as additional information about how to upload your videos. We look forward to seeing what ideas you come up with, and wish you the best of luck!

STN 2016-2017 COLLABORATIVE DOCUMENTARY


STN students are collaborating on a documentary project where several schools are producing segments on a common topic.

 TOPIC
The topic of this year’s collaborative documentary is:
No Limits:  A New View of Disability

STN encourages students to tackle issues that can in some way effect change.  By working collaboratively, students will learn how to share responsibility for workflow and how to produce a piece that is required to fit in a larger project.  These are important skills for real-world employment and success. This is a great opportunity to learn more about documentary filmmaking while making a positive impact in our communities.

Congratulations to the schools that were selected
based on written and video pitches:

 Royse City High School
Shrewsbury High School
Forest High School
Carlsbad High School
Lake Charles Boston Academy of Learning
Golden Valley High School
Eastview High School
