Here are two great extra credit opportunities. The Third Coast Short Doc challenge is a short 2-3 minute audio contest (of which I was a finalist two years ago btw) and the Lighthouse Film Festival is a free chance at submitting a film into a local festival. I'll give extra credit for entering both or either and I'll be available during media art club to aid you in anyway possible- may the force be with you!
The Third Coast Festival is having their annual ShortDocs Challenge which comes with a set of rules inspired by a creative partner. For 2015 that's the Studs Terkel Radio Archive from the WFMT Radio Network.lighthousefilmfestival.org/submit.
