HAPPY NEW YEAR 2011!!!
Hip Hop 2 Hollywood is off to a great start!
We just got word that we received a partial grant from the New York City Department of Cultural Affair through the Brooklyn Arts Council regrant program.
What that means is we will be able to go into another school for this spring semester 2011! We are in the process of identifying the lucky school and will keep you posted.
WHAT'S NEW? Our project page! Due to various technological advances (software, equipment) we have been to dramatically reduce the cost of our program making it more accessible to more schools. As a result our donation amounts have changed, in short, your dollar will go farther --so please check our new donation amounts and make a donation.
WHAT'S COMING UP? The Hip Hop 2 Hollywood 2010 Video compilation. Soon, you will be able to purchase the 5 student-made films from the 2010 program altogether in one dvd package for the nominal price of $21.95. If you are an instructor teaching your students about: Bullying, Littering, Animal Abuse, Being Bi-racial or Growing up Muslim then this is the dvd compilation for you. The videos range between 10-14 mins, long perfect for in-class discussions on these social-justice topics.
We are also branching out into the world of video curriculum. So many schools love, want and need a program like ours in their school but just can't afford it because of increasing budget cuts. To meet this demographic, MilagroGrande Films will produce a video curriculum of the Hip Hop 2 Hollywood program that schools can purchase and have their own instructors teach. Look for that by mid June.
That's it for now, below are pictures from the Reel Sister's Film festival back in October.
