  • This location is shown only to members

For our October Forum, StoryCode is excited to have Sue Schardt, whose work in revolutionizing radio for the digital age is unparalleled. Come hear her talk about the groundbreaking initiative Localore, and her work with AIR.

Sue Schardt assumed leadership of AIR’s 960 strong producer-network in 2007 and presents frequently on media-technology including 2012 Features “Think Tank” in Leipzig, NEA’s 2012 National Council, FCC’s Future of Media in the Digital Age, and Australian Centre for the Moving Image’s Co-Creative Communities: Forum and Lab in Melbourne.

She is Executive Producer of Localore, a ground-breaking producer-led initiative designed to build public radio and television stations’ innovation capacity and plant seeds to take public media to more Americans. She has served as an NPR Director as a member of the D-I Committee since 2007, is an advisor to Native Voice One, the Native American radio service, and artistic advisor to NPR’s From the Top.  Since 1988, Schardt has produced live radio on MIT’s free-form station WMBR in Cambridge.

Also presenting is the project TO FALL AND TO BE FREE by emerging immersive creators Michael Watson and Nick Ljubicich, 

To Fall and be Free" is a short film that follows the angel, Samael Morningstar, as he becomes increasingly frustrated with his desk job monitoring Eden. The website bridges the gap between the film and present day, and finds Samael Morningstar the CEO of his own "liberation bureau, Pan-Dem Inc. The webcomic, "Pandemonium", is a prophecy from Pan-Dem's prophecy department and details the events through which Jeff and Cthulhu (Pan-Dem employees) accidentally set the apocalypse in motion due to some misfiled paperwork.
