Founded in 2015, FBIIB Inc. is a unique intervention startup that aims to motivate and redirect at-risk youth toward better futures through media production and spotlighting of post-incarceration success stories.
While we have filmed a number of interviews with some amazing leaders post-incarceration, we are preparing to debut FBIIB's first program to bring at-risk-youth into our filming process.
This year (2017), in partnership with Transcendence Media, FBIIB will launch a pilot youth production workshop at our LIC/NY production studio, a space we are calling The New-Gen Production House.
After the pilot, our regular program will be a 12-Session workshop to train at-risk-youth (18 to 24) to envision, organize, film, edit, and publish compelling media content through HD video. Students will work in 3 teams of four, each team ultimately producing a 3-minute video that features a post-incarceration success story.
One component that excites us about this program is filming behind-the-scenes footage of our students learning, engaging, filming their subjects, and talking about this experience. This footage along with their 3-minute films, will form each episode of our Docu-Series, From Bars II Beyond. As a reality based series, each episode will portray a chronological development of their background, experience, and transformation.
The program aims to inspire young minds in at least 2 ways:
1) By sharing the ingredients of how formerly incarcerated leaders overcame their challenges to transformation, and
2) Showing these at-risk students using what they learned to shape, not only their video stories, but their own paths toward a better future.
To help us get our much needed programs off the ground, we are reecruiting volunteers and intern-seeking students to assist us in areas of complimentary interests that include the following:
- Social Media/Website Administrator
- Sponsor Outreach
- PR & Communications
- Program Coordination
- Events Planning
- Accounts & Budgeting
- Production & Editing
- Graphic/Visual Design
The posts in each of these areas will involve work that is commensurate with the voliunteer's experience and interests. Learning support will be provided from management and other resources.
