NALIP Accepting Applications for the Public Media/Documentary Lab

nalip

Deadline: Sunday, May 5, 2013

A NALIP National Signature Program in association with the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, HBO and the UA Hanson Film Institute.

The Latino Producers Academy is an intensive 10-day course that provides one-on-one professional mentoring for Fellows in a laboratory environment in order to enhance the viability of their projects and make them more competitive for public media funding.

NALIP invites directors of feature documentaries or new media projects to apply to the Latino Producers Academy. Projects must be about a subject concerning Latinos and/or the director must be Latino.

For the documentary track, projects must be in the post-production phase, ranging from edited selects, a trailer, to a full rough cut.

For the new media track, we are looking for web-native projects (conceived, designed, and produced for online distribution) that take advantage of the unique properties of the internet and digital media: data, location, participation, co-creation, interactivity. Along with innovative modes of video storytelling, we are also open to innovations in form, format, genre, and use of technology within public media. Projects should be in the discovery/development stage, or early production, to get the most out of the academy.

If you have questions about your eligibility, please contact Richard Saiz, LPA Program Director atdlealsaiz@gmail.com

This program is competitive and highly selective. It is open to NALIP members who have produced work on which they played a key creative role. All professional independent producers/directors are eligible to apply regardless of experience. All accepted Fellows are invited on full scholarship: materials, lodging, and meals provided by the LPA funders and sponsors.
