New Media Camp Submissions

THE NEW MEDIA CAMP (NMC) is a 4-day intensive video workshop (October 17 – 20, 2013 during the Hawaii International Film Festival also known as HIFF) where 6 participants will get hands-on guidance and expertise from professionals in the new media world ranging from successful YouTube partners and content producers, working filmmakers in traditional media, social media experts, and Hollywood actors who will assist in honing your craft in the production of a 3 minute video that will be presented on the final day of the workshop at the Regal Dole Cannery Stadium 18 & IMAX. The goal of the NMC is to align fans and emerging media-makers with their mentors and learn the tricks of the trade of becoming a successful New Media producer or personality. At the conclusion of the NMC, HIFF will select the two videos we consider to be the best to post on director Justin Lin’s (FAST & FURIOUS franchise) YOMYOMF Network YouTube channel and the remaining four videos will be posted on HIFF’s Vimeo channel.
