The NALIP Latino Lens Incubators is an exclusive incubation and media content production program designed to develop, nurture, and advance Latino content creators’ projects in efforts to showcase their talents as producers, directors, and writers. This year at the NALIP Media Summit incubator Fellows were present to talk about their work and to tease their upcoming projects. Both Latino Lens Narrative Shorts Incubator funded by the Time Warner Foundation and the NALIP/WORLD Channel Beyond Graduation Digital Incubator funded by CPB are in final stages and will be showcased at the Latino Media Fest in the Fall. Stay Tuned for additional announcements.
Latino Lens Narrative Shorts Incubator
Keeping with NALIP’s mission to foster and promote Latino media, the Latino Lens: Narrative Shorts Incubator will feature 3 short narrative scripts from Latino media content creators. Each 3 - 10 minute short film will present a creative approach and independent focus on an engaging storyline.
Funding for the NALIP Latino Lens: Narrative Shorts digital video project will be provided by the Time Warner foundation. The Time Warner Foundation is a private, nonprofit foundation that is wholly supported by Time Warner Inc. and its subsidiary companies Home Box Office, Inc., Turner Broadcasting System, Inc. and Warner Bros. Entertainment, Inc. Its mission is to seek innovative and powerful ways to discover, nurture and celebrate the next generation of storytellers. The Foundation strives to build impactful partnerships with best-in-class nonprofit organizations that push the boundaries of artist development and support underrepresented storytellers. The Foundation's ultimate goal is the cultivation of an artistic community that is rich, vibrant and relevant to audiences of today and tomorrow.
Beyond Graduation Digital Incubator
Since 2011, more than 80 public media stations and national content producers have played a significant role in increasing awareness of the issue and inspiring caring adults to get involved. American Graduate public media stations have and will work with their local communities to develop long term solutions in early childhood education; focus on where graduation gaps exist for students of different races, ethnicities, family incomes, and disabilities, as well as those with limited English proficiency; and celebrate local leaders and everyday heroes who are committed to improving outcomes for youth as “American Graduate Champions.” More information about the initiative is available at http://americangraduate.org/.
