On Saturday April 3rd, the WorkBook Project and the New School present DIY DAYS NYC. This marks the first time that the roving conference for creators will make a stop in NYC. The day will consist of talks, presentations, workshops and a special section called Incubator that matches two media startups with a think tank of experts.

BUT WE NEED YOUR HELP!

For the last 3 1/2 years the WorkBook Project has provided FREE info, resources, events and networking opportunities for those working in film, music, gaming, design and software. We now need your help. A sponsor that was slated to help with DIY DAYS NYC won’t be able to do so and we need to raise $3,000 in the next 25 days. In an effort to do so we’re turning to the community that we serve in hopes that they will help to support our efforts.

DIY DAYS INCUBATOR

We’re proud to announce a new section at DIY DAYS called the INCUBATOR. Our goal is to create a think tank of experts (legal, funding, biz dev, branding, design, tech dev) to help TWO media service startups flush out their business concepts while tapping into the true potential of their ideas. At the close of DIY DAYS the two startups will make presentations in front of a live audience that detail their vision, biz model and goals. The best presentation will win a startup package that includes a variety of services and / or cash prize to help them achieve their goals.

OPEN SESSIONS

“What are you working and what do you need?”

COMMENTS

  • This feels like one of the most important posts an indie filmmaker could ever read/watch. I'm months away from releasing my first feature and I thought we were pretty cutting edge, but these videos were a wake up call. I reposted this on my facebook and sent to a couple friends, but I don't think people appreciate how great the obstacles are, and how clever and aggressive you have to be make and maintain a successful release...

    Thanks for posting this...
