The WorkBook Project and the New School present DIY DAYS NYC. On Saturday April 3rd DIY DAYS comes to the New School in NYC for a day of talks, workshops and networking focused on creativity in the digital age. The focus of the day will be how those working in film, music, gaming, design, and software can fund, create, distribute and sustain from their creative efforts.

Over the coming weeks we’ll be announcing the program and speakers. Registration will open later this month and like all DIY DAYS events admission is FREE.

DIY DAYS is made possible thanks to time and talents of those who volunteer. If you’d like to volunteer please contact us at work [at] workbookproject [dot] com

Or perhaps you know of someone who would make a great speaker if so we’d love to hear from you. Please contact us at work [at] workbookproject [dot] com

More details to coming soon…

Dan Mirvish (Omaha the movie, Open House) charts his course from short film to web series to political scandals to an eventual book deal that is now leading to the whole story being optioned and turned into a film. “I Am Martin Eisenstadt: One Man’s (wildly inappropriate) Adventures with the Last Republicans,” is a mix of political intrigue, campaign-trail escapades, and cyberspace detective work. Desperate to rise through the ranks of Washington’s media punditocracy, Eisenstadt insinuates himself into the last 30 years of American politics – from losing his virginity to Fawn Hall, to interning on the Willie Horton ad campaign, to buying Sarah Palin’s wardrobe. Mirvish shares how his work has evolved beyond a single medium and the liberation that working within one’s limitations can bring.

Micki Krimmel (Mickipedia, NeighborGoods.net) and Marc Horowitz (Google Maps Road Trip, National Dinner Tour) discuss the benefits and pitfalls of creating an online cult of personality.
