Digital Media Connecticut (DMCT) is always looking to provide new programming to support Connecticut’s Digital Media talent pipeline. During the Summer of 2020, DMCT has launched its latest program yet, the “Select+CT” Podcast (available on iTunes and Spotify).
Select+CT is a Digital Media Connecticut podcast series dedicated to Connecticut’s Digital Media industry; for students who are nearing graduation with an interest in film, digital media, or television, focusing on topics relevant to the State’s next generation of digital media talent.
Weekly episodes feature interviews with industry professionals and faculty from Connecticut institutions offering degrees in Digital Media and related fields. Topics include Digital Media Entrepreneurship, Freelancing, Digital Media Marketing, Social Journalism, Film/Video, and much more.
The first episode, “Activism through Social Media,” features Mercy Quaye from The Narrative Project and Suzan Katz from the University of Bridgeport. The episode focuses on how young people who are engaged in online social activism can leverage their passion into something they can use to either get a job or build a nonprofit.
The Narrative Project started as a conversation platform in 2015, working collaboratively to improve individual and organizational race relations and normalize all intersections of identity.
Episode topics include: University to Career, Motion GFX, Creative Technologists, Women in Film, Building CT’s Future, Content Marketing, University to Hollywood, Gaming, and much more!
