“The Where of Storytelling: Creating Location-Based Experience” will consist of three different workshops that explore site-specific storytelling. The workshop is designed for creators interested in learning how to develop stories tied to a physical space.
The Made in NY Media Center by IFP will also be giving away one free pass to the entire program to one filmmaker or media maker who has a preexisting project in mind that he/she would like to expand into a location-based story. The winning pitch will get free access to all three parts of the Location Series, and will have their location-based project installed in the Made in NY Media Center by IFP.
