This fall the MCDM rolled out a new course – Production Studio: Advanced Multimedia Storytelling – as means to integrate the Four Peaks TV show with MCDM curriculum. The course concentrates on expanding the reach of Four Peaks TV by exploring and developing transformative production processes to create new models of media making, distribution, engagement and evaluation.
In its third year Four Peaks TV has formed a partnership with UWTV and King 5. This age of digital convergence has accelerated change, disrupting what was once a rock-steady world for professionals and their institutions. Four Peaks TV provides the essential mindshift to grasp this systemic revolution. This season, Host Hanson Hosein convenes a new wave of Innovators, Entrepreneurs, Creatives and Connectors whose audacity and skill have brought them to the peak of their disciplines. In each show, the guests also extend their reach – and yours – by sharing their professional challenges and exploring the strategies they can use to overcome those challenges. It’s recognition that during these transformative times, we all have something to learn from one another.
