This Year's Campaign is for the Youth
Every year MTN participates in the Give to the Max campaign. This year we would like to give you a heads up on what it is we are campaigning for; our youth programming. Our goal is to Raise $10,000 to equip a mobile production lab for youth programming and community events. The dollars raised will enable MTN to bring production training and programming to low income schools that cannot afford transportation costs to MTN. The goal met would provide on-site training, production, and fun for community members at events around Minneapolis. When you support this endeavor you are empowering MTN's work in reaching all community members with an experience working in media production technology, skill building in the media field, and the platform to express their voices to the public. The following are the specific equipment needs the $10,000 will fulfill:
5 MacBook Pros w/ iMovie for editing (est. $7,500)
2 2TB designated hard drives for storage of lab media ($350)
Mobile laptop case ($500)
Cellphone connection cables ($100) (to quickly transfer cell media to laptops for editing)
Total: $8,450 (leaves 1,550 for misc/van upgrades, etc)
The ongoing fundraising project, will finish in January 2014. Community Members can check out our "Youth Booth" at the Anniversary Party on GTTM day and donate there. MTN youth will be projecting video from the party all night.
