|OMF Partner Spotlight: Piton Foundation to Launch Floodlight |
Open Media Foundation is excited to partner with the Piton Foundation in their new project, Floodlight. What's Floodlight?
Floodlight: See and show your community in a new light
Your story matters. Without it, nothing happens. Floodlight is a new, free web-based storytelling project that gives individuals and organizations the skills and tools to create and share visually-compelling, data-supported stories that make community change possible. Built through a partnership between the Piton Foundation and the Denver Foundation, with support from the Open Media Foundation and I-News, Floodlight helps people illuminate their own issues while contributing to a larger, unfolding story about our community.
Take a look at the first community storytelling workshop below, filmed at Open Media Foundation:

|Intern spotlight: Don Rose|
This month, we talked with our PR & Marketing intern Don Rose... read on to learn more!
Tell us a little bit about yourself. My name is Donald Rose from Atlanta, GA I have Master's degree in Entertainment Business. I have a love for music, and for business. As a recording artist I've had performance opportunities in Atlanta, Florida, Bahamas and New York (The Apollo). So my next goal is to build a successful business.
How did you become involved in multimedia work? During my Bachelors degree program I had the opportunity to work with multimedia outlets such as broadcast radio, radio production, studio production and film production. I even produced an internet show that was called the Sports Zone that aired weekly.
Tell us about why you decided to do an internship with Open Media Foundation? I decided to do an internship with Open Media Foundation because I wanted more hands on experience with the PR/Marketing part of business.
What kinds of projects have you worked on with OMF? Drafting Press Releases, Marketing, Business Development
What have you gotten out of your internship with OMF? I would say the opportunity to learn the process for PR/Marketing.
What are your career goals? To be a successful entrepreneur, within the music industry. Im am currently the Co-Founder of CollabAve.com which is a website where the artist gets to choose from multiple song mixes from music engineers for one price.
Why do you think community media centers are important? I think community media centers give the public the opportunity to be heard, much like the music of a recording artist. It also allows access to tools that otherwise would cost an individual thousand of dollars. The education portion allows for a non traditional approach and people are able to obtain skill sets for a lot less than if they attended a university.
|Tribute: Wendy Newman|
In early August our friend and longstanding client, Wendy Newman, passed away. Our loss was sudden and great, but we are honored to be a part of the celebration of Wendy's life through the work she did with the OMF Web Department. Wendy was involved with the Breast and Women's Reproductive Cancer Fund and helped coordinate information and images to put together a website that educated Colorado residents about donating to this local nonprofit. Using her personal experience with fighting breast cancer, she helped put a human touch on the message for support and action toward this fund. Wendy's personal touch helped get the Colorado Breast Cancer Coalition in contact with us in 2010. With a grant from the BWRC fund, this group was able to get a custom designed website through OMF, you can see it here.
Most recently, Wendy Newman came to work with us on a new project that focused on connecting kids to nature in Colorado. She helped put together a plan for Get Outdoors, Colorado -- a clearinghouse of information for existing parks and recreation groups to help get people "off the couch and out the door." Wendy had been working with this coalition of partners to see this project become a reality for over a year, and the work continues as her colleagues forge ahead with the memory of Wendy's passion and determination. The new clearinghouse website should be completed this Fall, and will include many interactive tools that will focus on getting children more involved with outdoor recreation.
Wendy lived and worked in Denver, CO and prior to that she went to school at Ohio State University where she received a degree in natural resources. She was born in Las Vegas, NV and was 37 at the time of her passing. To write a condolence to friends and family go to www.EvergreenMemorialPark.com.
