About

 

Since 2003, The WGBH Lab has offered a virtual and physical space for innovation and experimentation in the world of user-generated content. The WGBH Lab stands at the intersection of broadband and broadcast. The creative results of the Lab may appear on WGBH TV, WGBH.org and, as our partnerships expand, more broadly on PBS.

By paving the way for original and diverse voices, the WGBH Lab helps define the role of public media in our new media democracy.

Welcome to your public media.

Visit the Lab’s Open Call Site : Consider this an opening, a chance to share your fresh ideas as the next generation of independent and public media makers. Following the footsteps of WGBH’s New Television Workshop, which brought video to life in an age of film, the WGBH Lab is a creative incubator. We encourage emerging talent, aided by the latest technology, to lead us into new ways of making and interacting with content. What remains the same is WGBH’s commitment to substance, quality, and independent voices.

    When are you going to make a decision on the Life Stories videos?…It seems like you have forgotten about these, or, that you just keep posting new calls for videos and just put off making any decisions on this one. No status updates, news, either. it would be courteous to all the film makers to follow up and follow through on any given call, after all, they have put much work into their videos, and you are a public station.

    thanks, MM

    Hi Marcus, Thank you for your input! We haven’t forgotten about the Life Stories videos. Getting approval for broadcast is a process that can take months, and that is where we currently are with the submissions. As soon as we get confirmation to move forward, we will definitely let you and all of the others know! Thank you again for your time and patience.

      Ok, perhaps I’m missing something, but shouldn’t “getting approval for broadcast” be something that is done BEFORE you hold a open call hinting that soem (four) videos “might” get shown on NOVA? And why should it take this long, either NOVA is interested, or not. If the folks at NOVA are this slow in making such a simple decision (to use four shorts as filler between other programming) then maybe the programmers don’t know what they are doing,a nd shuld be replaced. Alternately, if this is how they make decisions, maybe you should look elsewhere for a broadcast host.
