San Francisco Film Society & LucasFilm Youth Program Recommends YouScreenWriter.com
by Greg Mandanis - Monday, 22 March 2010, 11:51 AM
 
This letter serves as recommendation for YouScreenWriter for their excellent contributions to the area of youth media education. I first met Greg Mandanis at one of our youth education programs a little over a year ago. At the time he was collaborating with Santa Rosa High School and their media department. Greg attended one of our programs that we put on in a series called The Art & Science of LucasFilm.

In this four-part, yearlong series, experienced professionals from the various LucasFilm divisions share their knowledge—and their spectacular secrets—with Bay Area students in engaging and interactive multimedia presentations that demonstrate the intersection of art and science in the entertainment industry.

One of the follow up activities that teachers were encouraged to do with their students involved writing a film treatment for a contest we were holding. The point was to encourage the development of writing skills by using what they learned in the presentation. We were able to collaborate with and direct teachers to the YouScreenWriter.com site as a useful tool in helping the kids put together their pieces. I had numerous teachers give great feedback for how useful and easy to use the site was.

It was a great resource for us and I'm glad we were able to connect with this great youth media resource....

I hope that a possible grant would allow them to continue their work in the education community...

Best,
--

Irvine Chamber, Paul Merage School of Business & YouScreenWriter.com develop a business incubator for Southern California's economic future
by Greg Mandanis - Monday, 22 March 2010, 11:49 AM
 
YouScreenWriter.com provides the serious amateur essential tools to produce quality digital media productions. The gap between the professional and serious amateur is in not in the technology but rather in the content. Youscreenwriter.com provides the structure that allows the serious amateur to produce quality content.

I've worked with Greg Mandanis since the inception of this project. He correctly identified the market niche and his experience in project management led him to include a variety of tools that allow the non-professionals to create high-quality content. This web tool will allow a rapid expansion of digital media applications by ordinary users who have a story to tell the world.

My discussions with Greg over the past few years have led me to
recognize the importance of digital media as a growth cluster. I'm working with Paul Merage School of Business to develop a business incubator for this sector and I'm giving a special focus to digital media in my economic development efforts for Irvine. Digital Media will be an important sector in Southern California's economic future and I believe Youscreenwriter.com provides an essential tool to help it grow.

What the Experts are Saying...

The technical world of Film and Video making/production has become more and more accessible to individuals through social networking sites as well as sites devoted to the medium of the internet. Likewise, a new way of constructing visual information, a new tool for media applied to both internet and conventional media presentation is in order.

Yousceenwriter.com provides such a pathway for the student, the casual media presenter as well as the professional to organize, share and revise visual media presentations using the same methods motion picture and television industry professionals have used for years.

Additionally, this site can be effective in a classroom environment as a way of teaching the basics of Film and TV production by lessening the gap between instruction and application.

As a person who produces small productions and documentaries, I find this site indispensable, saving both time and money, in it’s multi-user mode, when trying to communicate and receive ideas to and from persons while I’m shooting in the field.
