I REMEMBER…. NCA Centennial Video Project

The National Communication Association (NCA), with 8,000 members is the largest communication association worldwide representing communication professors, students and professionals.  NCA is 100 years old in 2014 and Communication students, classes, or student organizations are invited to submit a proposal to record memories of past NCA conventions at the 2013 NCA Convention in Washington DC and produce a video for display at the 2104 Centennial NCA in Chicago, IL.  Applications are due by September 2, 2013.

Project specifications:  Individual interviews are to be conducted by “roving” videographers at the 2013 NCA Convention in Washington, DC, screened for appropriate content, representation of diversity and edited into a looping video that may be displayed at the 2014 Centennial NCA Convention in Chicago, IL pending approval by the NCA Centennial Planning Committee.  Videographers will also be responsible for collecting informed consent signatures at the time of the interview.  The video should capture a diversity of voices and memories including but not limited to: “What was your most memorable experience at an NCA convention? What experience at an NCA convention/conference had the most impact on your career development? What would you tell a junior colleague about your experiences in NCA?”  The planners will work with the students and NCA National Office to find a prime location from which to record interviews.

Eligibility:  Applicants must 1) be current communication undergraduate or graduate students who have a knowledge of video production, 2) have access to appropriate recording and editing equipment that you can bring with you, 3) have at least two members of the team in attendance at the 2013, November 21-24 National Communication Association Conference in Washington DC, 4) complete an approximately 30 minute edited, video by March 30, 2014, and 5) have a faculty sponsor to oversee the project at the convention and in post-production.

Compensation:  Reimbursement for editing and production costs, travel, hotel accommodations, and student registration for up to four students for the 2013 NCA Convention not to exceed a total of $5,000.
