Project Details

What We Need
  • Development of a new website using a Content Management System (CMS)
  • Training to ensure Organization's staff members can update content and manage the site post-launch
  • Note: This project is for a website built with a Content Management System (CMS), such as Wordpress, Squarespace, Joomla, or Drupal. A CMS-based website can be maintained and updated easily (no coding required!)
What We Have In Place
  • We currently have an existing website and some reference sites, which should make it easy for you to get started. We also have language, images and video, and the ability to provide any other information you need.
How This Will Help

Our current website is almost 10 years old. As a video/media organization we need to create up to date content that compelling tells our story and shows our current work.

About The Org

Our Mission

Big Picture Alliance's mission is to engage, educate and empower Philadelphia's underserved youth through filmmaking and digital media arts. We provide transformative learning experiences that promote self-expression, collaboration, and accomplishment. We are committed to providing a safe and supportive outlet for youth to have their voices heard, develop as young professionals and reach their full potential.

What We Do

Big Picture Alliance partners with schools, cultural institutions and social service agencies to bring filmmakers into the classroom to teach collaborative filmmaking through a hands-on project-based curriculum. Youth learn script writing, video production, and editing through creating original films from script-to-screen. Our teaching artists work with students to help them find their creative voice, while developing their communication, collaboration, and technical skills. Youth share their work with industry professionals through field trips to TV & film studios and then present their films at community screenings and festivals. We work with our school partners to align our projects with their curriculum while providing portfolio and scholarship support to our high school juniors, seniors, and alumni.

Our project is sponsored by: Philadelphia Foundation
