Creative Process- conceptualizing to execution, topics falling under the creative areas including writing and direction like how to conceptualize a web series, art of storyboarding for films & television etc.
Interactive Media & convergence with Entertainment- synergy between interactive media (like video sharing platforms-Youtube/Vimeo/Dailymotion etc) with cinema/music/T.V etc
Miscellaneous-anything connected to Cinema and/or Interactive Media which does not fall under points 1, 2 &3.categories for example-film criticism,future of interactive media,adaptation of books and plays into films etc., censorship in cinema, how to make you app stand out amidst the clutter,how can podcasting serve as means of promoting a brand/movie etc.

To understand how we have been using the art of story-telling and have changed thousands of lives for good.
We run a digital media startup called The Better India (www.thebetterindia.com) that has been reporting ‘positive stories’ from across India. We’ve been witnessing unprecedented on-ground impact for the stories we’ve been publishing and have hundreds of case studies of such impact. Would love to share these insights at The Goa Project.
