The Program
Labs

In keeping with MAST's forward-thinking mission, our labs will cover topics ranging from novel uses of free-to-use and open-source software for keeping production costs low, to guerilla production tactics for indie content creators, to business and brand-building essentials for artist entrepreneurs. Instructors will be subject matter experts, and wherever possible, prominent influencers and advocates for the technologies and methodologies they teach.

Labs are designed as an essential element of the MAST Fellowship, but are open to the public for a fee, both in-person or online.

Labs will begin in April 2019, and will be announced in February.

Fellowship

The MAST Fellowship is a curated program of labs, mentorships, pitch and networking events, production subsidizing, facility and equipment offerings, and sponsor matching.

Between 5 and 10 MAST Fellows will be selected by invitation, and from among the winners of the 2019 MAST contests, People of Earth, Micro-docs, and Voices Seen.
