for MEDIA MAGIC EVTED@theDoles
MEDIA MAGIC EVTED@theDoles is a collaborative initiative of EVT Educational Productions, Inc., and the City of Mt. Vernon, New York. It’s a synergy of shared resources, personnel and space that provides the community, primarily young people, with a variety of media training and exposure. In this capacity, our Program functions as an umbrella, magnet and incubator where combinations of like-minded entities with similar goals and missions can come together, collectively or individually, to fulfill their creative objectives. Our core principle is not only to provide our service to this community, but of equal importance, beyond any hands-on training or media exposure is the nurturing of the entrepreneurial spirit, which encompasses any skill-sets or collaborative efforts needed to produce income-generating products, Cooperatives or Companies.
a) be on time for all classes, workshops, meetings, etc.
b) alert your primary Instructors/Advisors by phone, text or e-mail if you’ll be late or absent, at least 24 hours ahead if at all possible; if that’s not possible, alert them as soon as you know;
c) unless granted permission to do otherwise, use our lab computers strictly for your Program’s needs as assigned by your Instructors;
d) complete all assigned tasks by the set deadline (unless there’s a reasonable/acceptable excuse for not meeting the deadline);
e) deposit all trash from food/beverages into the large trash receptacle at the end of the hall by the restrooms; our waste receptacles are for non-food/beverage trash only.
NOTE: EVERYONE must conduct themselves with the ultimate courtesy and respect for themselves, each other, and of course the equipment that’s at your disposal.

YOUTH & COMMUNITY OUTREACH PROJECT
EVT Educational Productions, Inc., was founded in 1988 with specific goals and missions:
Because the numbers we were able to reach and affect were much too small, we now have a new model and approach for a Project to reach wider numbers in a more sustainable and effective way — a community-based Media Center designed for skills training and to encourage entrepreneurship: Media Magic.
Provide media exposure and training: in film production (documentary/narrative) and editing; basic journalism (print and broadcast) to promote more “citizen journalism;” TV studio production/studio operations, and related areas; training in graphic arts/computer graphics; on-line web fluency (web site design/construction and Social Media outreach/marketing) and, of key importance, mobile applications design.
Our Media Magic umbrella will also encompass training and exposure in Theatre/theatrical arts, primarily for young people, but also any interested adults. The aim is to provide not just technical/technological training for possible jobs and careers, but to also foster/inspire a spirit of community empowerment, and an “incubator home” for entrepreneurial ideas and “content.” We’ve now partnered with the City of Mt. Vernon, New York to make this a reality.
