As discussed in an earlier post, we took the onslaught of a pandemic as an opportunity to better position Broadcast Atlanta for a future full of unexpected change. We had the right idea. Since that post Russia invaded Ukraine (a place Broadcast Atlanta has a history) and has changed the geopolitical landscape of Europe for the next 50 years; and Monkeypox seems to be the latest pandemic. All this is on top of COVID 19 and the January 6 Capitol riot that was, and arguably still is, the crisis of the day. It seems our collective civic life is in daily turmoil.
Moving forward, Broadcast Atlanta is leaning in and building upon previously announced initiatives including our on-going donation of archives to the Atlanta History Center, and a similar pledge of historic documentary footage from our (Prague) Studio B3 production “Fragments of a Crisis” film to the Refugee Council Archives at The University of East London’s Library at Docklands, the archival partner of The United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR).
Here is a preview of new fall 2022 projects that we are excited about:
- BroadcastATL.com, our new content platform launching Sept. 15, will showcase ready-to-share content packages and e-commerce (BroadcastAtlanta.com will remain our corporate site for global production clients);
- New long-term projects including a 3-year documentary project on the rebuilding of Ukraine;
- Niche content portals and series providing coverage of artificial intelligence, Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act projects, and a soon-to-be-announced series in the food and beverage space.
All of our initiatives build upon our legacy of content knowledge expertise in sustainability, economic development, and global trade and immigration topics.
I’ll share more details and additional news as we progress through the next few months. If you have any questions or comments, please contact me. I look forward to hearing from you.
