Wildfires are devastating communities across California, causing more than 300,000 people to evacuate their homes and threatening many more. The Camp Fire in Northern California -- one of three blazing across the state -- is the most destructive in state history. We want to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you find access to shelter. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know the most effective ways to contribute.
3-Minute Egg is "The Twin Cities arts SEEN" -- the nation's first daily video blog focusing exclusively on a local arts community and its work.
We focus our lens on Twin Cities artists and arts happenings in every discipline -- dance, theater, visual art, music, literature, slam poetry and alternative performance. We shoot from rehearsals, performances, studios, author/poet readings and more, mixing interviews with footage of the artwork into daily video documentaries that each run between three to four minutes.
Our videos appear on Facebook, iTunes and our own core Web site (3minuteegg.org) and are also edited into a half-hour program that airs weekly on Twin Cities Public Television. 3-Minute Egg also works in service to the artists we profile and the broader arts community by allowing anyone, at no charge, to embed our videos onto their own Web sites. Many organizations and independent artists do just that, using our videos to quickly and easily show the public what they do.
During our first regular season of programming (September 2008 through June 2009), we produced more than 170 videos focused exclusively on local artists and the work they do. This is more than all other Twin Cities arts media outlets combined. We resume daily programming in September 2009.
3-Minute Egg operates as a sole proprietor LLC and is privileged to have IFP-Minnesota as its nonprofit fiscal agent, allowing 3-Minute Egg to apply for foundation grants and accept tax-deductible donations.
