THE METROPOLITAN OPERA GUILD
For seven years, Larry's Transmedia Projects class helped The Met Guild educate public school students throughout the New York Metropolitan area about opera. The culmination of the Guild's outreach was bringing the students to Lincoln Center to see the actual production of the opera they were studying. But, in between, as part of teaching the students about the opera -- story, setting, character, etc., Larry and his classes developed a series of one to two minute animated videos, which dove deeper in character and story development.

MOTOWN COMES TO MONTCLAIR STATE UNIVERSITY
Motown's legacy is firmly entrenched in our culture. It was originally positioned to the Baby Boomer generation as the "Music of Young America," and, led by the genius of Berry Gordy, Motown gave us some legendary performers/groups -- The Supremes, Four Tops, Temptations, Marvin Gaye, Smokey Robinson, the Jackson Five, Stevie Wonder, and so many more.
The challenge of the Motown Museum is to make sure the incredible Motown legacy lives on, and it can -- with some help of a Transmedia campaign. And, that challenge will be taken on by Larry Weiner's fall Transmedia Projects class. Stay tuned for more details!
