That’s right, budding content creators and online media personalities! The YOMYOMF Network and HIFF’s NEW MEDIA CAMP (as part of the Festival’s Creative Lab at HIFF) is extending its deadline til October 1st! So, it’s not too late to submit your application, which is entirely free!

This upcoming HIFF (October 10 – 20), we are launching THE NEW MEDIA CAMP (NMC), a 4-day intensive video workshop (October 17 – 20, specifically), where 6 participants will get hands-on guidance and expertise from professionals in the new media world ranging from successful YouTube partners and content producers, working filmmakers in traditional media, social media experts, and Hollywood actors who will assist in honing your craft in the production of a 3 minute video that will be presented on the final day of the workshop at the Regal Dole Cannery Stadium 18. The goal of the NMC is to align fans and emerging media-makers with their mentors and learn the tricks of the trade of becoming a successful New Media producer or personality. At the conclusion of the NMC, HIFF will select the two videos we consider to be the best to post on director Justin Lin’s (FAST & FURIOUS franchise) YOMYOMF Network YouTube channel and the remaining four videos will be posted on HIFF’s YouTube channel.

So, we’ve launched an OPEN CALL FOR ENTRIES and are seeking young, energetic and self-motivated media-makers who would be interested to be 1 of 6 participants in this exclusive 4-day workshop! You have to be at least 14 years of age, a Hawaii resident, and be ready to submit an example of your work and your script or treatment on why you should be chosen! And we’ve extended the deadline to October 1st!

It’s super simple to submit your entry. Just go to the NEW MEDIA CAMP site and fill out the online form. Come rub elbows with established YouTubers, YOMYOMF folk and working filmmakers! It’s a great way to get your foot in the door!
