What is MadBarn Creators
This past year The Barn was approached by a local business. They inquired about possibly finding a group of students with a passion in filmmaking to work with them to create a commercial. This conversation inspired the idea that a program where talented students could be paired with local businesses in order to benefit BOTH of them, thus MadBarn Creators came to life.
Many businesses have needs for advertising, but don't have the resources to use a large advertising agency. The Chamber of Commerce will reach out to their members and will connect interested parties with The Barn. Once the needs of the client are established, The program’s Coordinator will reach out to the MadBarn Creators and match interested talented students with the assignment. A meeting will be arranged between the clients, the Creators, and the Coordinators to integrate a creative vision and a plan of action.
Coordinators will be giving students assistance in brainstorming ideas, procurement of equipment, and instituting a time table. There will be NO INSTRUCTORS for this program. Students will be responsible for doing the majority of the work for their assignments independently, but will have a support system in place for troubleshooting issues, answering questions, and basic guidance.
Once the assignment is complete and the client is given the final product, there will be a financial stipend from The Barn that will be based on the difficulty of the assignment as well as the student’s level of participation.
In addition to money, students will build onto their portfolio and/or resume and gain experience in an area of study that they have shown ability and passion in.
