Media For Change Event in Santa Fe by Daniel Golding

Just wanted to post a message regarding the 1st Vision Maker Media Media For Change event in Santa Fe, NM. I have to say that I really enjoyed the program and it was good to see old friends and meet new ones. I found this event to particularlly interesting because of how media is changing. It's no longer about just delivering a completed movie, but now it's about  how to extend the life of that program by using new media, such as the internet, apps, online gaming, etc.

I did enjoy the presentation by Molly Murphy from Working Films regarding building a campaign around you film, although this is another major expense and means raising more money. I think if Vision Maker Media could develop a workshop on how to build a campaign on a dime for our programs this would be more helpful. This can also be done by creating a disscussion or a blog on the Vision Maker Media site for everyone to share how they have been able to successfully get there programs out on a budget. This would be more helpful for me.

I also think that it was a brillant idea to bring together media makers and educators to see how we could compliment each other in terms of developing our media and how they can utilize it. I think as media maker it's good to consider how we tailor our program to the education market. Sometimes I forget to think about after the broadcast of our programs that there is other markets out there to get our programs seen and the educational market is a huge market that most of our programs will be an ideal fit.

Thanks again to the Vision Maker Media team for inviting me and I look forward to the 2nd annual Media For Change Workshop.
