WOAH! Participants of the 2016 Summer Women’s Consortium Leadership Institute are currently developing a YouTube channel to educate the public on current women’s issues. WOAH is seeking self-motivated, creative, and hard-working students with the desire to work, and get hands-on experience, in the world of media!
Anchor: We are looking for personable students with a desire and passion to educate the public on current women’s issues, feminism, women’s health, issues concerning Women of Color and the LGBT+ (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender) community, and how men can be involved in the feminist movement. Anchors must be able to communicate effectively, be charismatic, an entertaining manner, and be comfortable in front of a camera.
Producers: Responsibilities of the producer are very broad, and may not be what you would traditionally consider the duties of a producer. Producers will have duties such as brainstorming ideas, script writing, filming, media editing, production, and any other tasks that are associated with production from start to finish. Producers may also work with social media and on the channel itself, and promoting the channel will be a critical goal of the producers.
***if you are interested in writing please indicate that on your application***
Directors: Directors must be creative, and they must have a good sense of how to take a script or outline and guide the anchors and media crew throughout the filming process. Communication skills are also essential for this role. Directors must be able to take their vision of a script or outline and make it a reality while also allowing anchors to have independence and creative freedom.
