View this conversation about how to use your mobile phone to tell stories and write a video “letter” to the next President. Learn storytelling, production, and distribution techniques to explore the possibilities of using readily available tools and to reach a broad audience—the power is in your own hands! Participants from the Bay Area Video Coalition (BAVC) and Fusion, along with educators and student guests, discussed their experiences creating videos to tell stories and voice their opinions.   

This hangout was produced in support of Letters to the Next President 2.0, a project engaging youth in civic participation on issues and topics that matter to them in the US Presidential Election. It was also co-streamed at connectedlearning.tv.
