Mission Statement

FBIIB Inc. aims to motivate and direct young, criminal-justice-involved men and women to aspire and successfully pursue enriching and productive professions, while reducing some of the stigma and disinvestment they face within our society.

Description

FBIIB is a uniquely-niched youth intervention startup that aims to support their aspirations in media while spotlighting the many men & wo­men who, despite having a criminal justice past, are transcending expectations in forging successful futures.

In partnership with Transcendence Media, FBIIB is launching a youth production workshop at our LIC/NY production studio, a space we are calling The New-Gen Production House.

Our program is a 12-Session workshop series 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 their experience. This footage along with their 3-minute film projects, will form each episode of our Docu-Series, From Bars II Beyond. As a reality based series, each episode will portray a chronological understanding of their struggles, experience, and transformation.

At the end of each workshop series, students will be awarded with a certificate, a graduation screening of their projects, and referrals to film organizations for possible employment, internships, or mentorships.
