This year's Jewish Futures Competition is soliciting four-minute videos that answer the question:
How will Jewish life, living and learning change as we move to a society in which individuals are not only consumers of information and culture, but also producers of their own and others' experiences?
The submissions should promote a clear vision or idea in response to this question. Although the submissions may refer to specific projects or programs it is the vision or idea that should be the focus of the presentation.
Winners of this competition will be flown to the Jewish Federations General Assembly conference in Denver in November, 2011 to deliver a ten-minute presentation based on the video to the Jewish Futures Conference, whose theme is "The Jewish Prosumer: The Move from Consumer to Producer in Jewish Life and Learning."
Naturally, this all sounds quite relevant to what we're doing here. If we could make one of these videos and end up addressing this conference, it would garner a great deal of attention for our community.
What clear vision or idea about Jewish individuals as both consumers and producers can we express, in light of what's going on here?
What are some points that a video expressing this vision or idea ought to make?
Does anyone here know how to make a nice video?
