WHAT IS AMPLIFY?

 

6 Projects

Amplify will select six projects into the first cohort of audio incubators to develop original programming through design collaboration, expert training, and mentorship from audio veterans.

6 Months

The incubator runs over the course of 6 months, allowing each project to develop in a collaboration with their fellow producers and instructors.

3 Episode Pilot Run

Each project will produce at least three complete episodes as a pilot run for Amplify. When the Amplify run is finished, pilots will debut to the public and Amplify partners will find next steps for each project.
