NPR and our MARCH meetup:
Big thanks to guru media maker at National Public Radio – Andy Carvin – for hosting us.

DC Media Makers and you:
When it comes to making media, DC Media Makers’ preferred MO is “have fun, learn, create, share, repeat.”

So are you passionately interested in all things digital education i.e. online video, podcasts, mobile blogging, screencasting, and more?

If so – don’t walk but RUN to join in.

No matter what your level of experience with digital tech or media, there’s a place for you here. Share a favorite online video clip from your personal or professional portfolio or a new editing software or other production tips or a new project idea.

Bottom line:
DC Media Makers is the ‘big tent’ for peer learning and promoting digital literacy in DC.

Presenters for our next meetup (…awesome):

1.) Bruce Geisert, IT consultant, former board member of Arlington Community Television (now called Arlington Independent Media), and expert in online video production for nonprofits. -Hear more from Bruce on open education content publishing (Blackboard, Moodle, Wiki’s);

2.) Producer Steve Fisher and Writer/Director Michael Dougherty, of Browncoats Redemption (a great fan movie being produced as a charity fundraiser). -Learn the ins/outs of production and what Steve’s team is doing online and off to make this movie happen.
