As we move forward as an international organization, here are a few groups, that when we do meet their criteria, I would like the appropriate chapters to reach out to them for funding and strategic partnerships as it applies, note some are just referenced for general information validating the work we are already doing.


  • http://losangeles.cbslocal.com/category/lexus-music-uncovered/ (Please browse both the behind the scenes photos and the exclusive video. I believe within MECA Entertainment, STUDENTdirect Productions, and STUDENTdirect Publications we are at par with them or even slightly divergently better in our behind the scenes photo content - we are after all highlighting students doing the same work as the professionals. Consider us lucky and hardworking. As for the exclusive video great story that caters to our curiosity, but also demonstrates a very well masked product placement production. Ive been advocating some of these techniques for the longest in regards to STUDENTlife's coverage of community events. We are getting there but not quite there yet, either way we are going in the right direction.)

  • http://ebrp.net/ (When it comes to global incident management consider software and groups such as the following who excell in Business Continuity Management. Note in what we are trying to accomplish we must leverage other organizations, their knowledge and resources in order to succeed. Be confident that with JB Community Management and Consultation Group we will always be informed and in the know.)

  • http://www.adgcommunications.com/ (Further we are exemplifying what this company advocates, thanks in part to JBM Global Solutions. Never underestimate what a group of students can do when they are determined and inspired.)
  • http://southtx.acp-international.com/ (This group is an example of an organization that focuses on disaster relief, note we are heading in the same direction, however due to the fact that we embody students and our leadership is young, we can not overcomplicate things. We must be to the point and condense as much as we can. Be action vs. words. We will use technology to help achieve this as info is very important and constant communication and data, but we must simplify the process. To be blunt no volunteer wants to do a 200 page report. However finishing a video game or an extensive television series is as complex as a 200 page report, but definitely more fun. How many of our volunteers actually read a 200 page report. But they can submit data as they do in a video game or when they give feedback of their favorite television series on facebook, twitter, tumblr, etc. Anticipate the changes we will be making to reduplicating data entry, etc. into something as fluid and as engaging as video games and social media.)
  • http://southtx.acp-international.com/index.php/jobsresources/certifications (Some of the certificates that validates the type of work we want to be involved as a Foundation. We will be leveraging experts in this regards, etc. as we develop teams in such areas of management. Note that JB Community Management and Consultation Group, a division of JBM Global Solutions has a team of experts ready in this regards.)
  • http://poptent.rumblefish.com/ (In regards to music licensing, etc. as how it effects STUDENTdirect Productions, etc. such sites as the one mentioned may offer alternative solutions, so our creatives can be creative and not consumed by legal or miscommunications/ mismanagement between music producers, etc and project deadlines.)
  • http://www.poptent.com/album/412/important-forms (In regards to legal in media this reference will help coordinators format the appropriate release forms and provide each chapter with the necessary documentation to move forward. In our operation manuals we already have edited releases and agreements that have been in use in past projects and is still in effect.)
  • http://rumblefish.com/index.php (A few more ideas on music and licensing.)
  • http://animoto.com/cause (Make your video cause message stronger.)

    The above mentions (links) were referenced by Brian Antezana, Chief Operations Officer of the STUDENTdirect Charitable Foundation.

  • http://www.maxpreps.com/photo/photographers.aspx?photographerid=ea8a2dc9-8d4f-4262-99a6-1f7803564500 (We are, already in this direction at Eagle Rock High School, thanks to our ERHS Initiating Community Action, chapter. In addition student leadership will be mobilizing students in media classes as STUDENTdirect Volunteers for cohesive media related projects. This is scalabe at other high schools. To set an example we have been documenting students experiences in sports thru our chapters in conjunction with STUDENTdirect Productions and Publications. The experiences are branded as "STUDENTlife" which duplicates and scales what maxpreps has done for years in the arena of sports. This effort is pivotal for the STUDENTdirect Charitable Foundation in regards to its upcoming pr campaign.)
  • www.thecharityangels.com (This is an example of what we expect from volunteers who are enrolled in MECA Entertainment or STUDENTdirect Productions when it comes to charity events whether it be our own fundraiser or another groups. We are not there yet but this is what we will be working towards.)
  • www.KoldCast.TV (In reference to students submitting content we will be utilizing something similar, but this is good to be familiar with since I feel it is something that will become more popular with main stream studios and producers in Hollywood. To better prepare students, in the future we will be leveraging STUDENTdirect.TV to meet our needs in the distribution, marketing, and management of content.)
  • http://la-artist.com/books/ (We will be implementing a similar approach in our marketing strategy. Briefly browse their site. In our regards as part of our marketing strategy be familiar with the "Artist Index" and "Charity Index" Project. We will be implementing both to engage our communities.)
  • http://www.coca-colacompany.com/ (Highlights of initiatives that Coco-Cola believes in.)
  • http://www.blokauto.com/1999-Ford-Econoline-RV-Cutaway-Gardena-California-90248/4811060 (This is a transport vehicle (mini bus that seats 15) in the future we intend to have a couple of these to streamline and improve the experiences of TV Taping Fundraisers. It is also good branding and marketing for STUDENTdirect International.)
  • http://www.reuters.com/article/2012/03/08/us-nigeria-corruption-oil-idUSBRE8270GF20120308 (A reminder that our organization is not just focused on media alone. This is something Brian Antezana referenced to me, the Foundation's Chief Operations Officer, he definitely sees a pressing need for the Foundation to accelerate STUDENTdirect International's growth so we can mobilize volunteers worldwide to address the issues we can address.)
  • http://www.businessinsider.com/the-top-20-emerging-philanthropists-2012-9 (Reference made by Brian, interesting article.)
  • http://www.businessinsider.com/billionaire-social-calendar-2013-11 (Another fun read referenced by Brian.)
  • http://www.businessinsider.com/10-most-expensive-streets-in-the-world-2013-11 (Referened by Brian, its good to know a little bit about the extremely wealthy.)
