We have a very exciting video to feature for today’s Clip of the Week: “Save the Putnam Nature Trail,” the 8-minute documentary produced by MNN’s Will Sanchez, Vanessa Cordova-Corwin and Monica McKane-Sanchez that not only screened at last week’s International Film Festival Manhattan—but took home an award.
The film is based on a special episode of “Gotta Run with Will,” an MNN show about the culture of running and how the sport can change your life. The first on-location shoot for executive producer and host Sanchez, “Save the Putnam Nature Trail,” is part of an effort to stop a New York City Parks Department plan to pave a one-and-a-half-mile dirt path that runs through Van Cortlandt Park in the Bronx. ...
Great news! We’re excited to release two brand-new election specials, the latest phase of MNN’s Race2Represent, a multimedia, multi-platform initiative providing New York voters with unprecedented access to hyperlocal coverage of the 2013 races.
Today we unveiled “Your City, Your Issues” and “Your District, Your Issues,” expert panel discussions exploring the 2013 races for mayor, comptroller, public advocate and City Council and the issues on voters’ minds as they head to the polls. Both specials are moderated by Ben Max, founder of DecideNYC.com, a popular new website providing voters in the five boroughs comprehensive information on local contests and candidates.
