Explains 2020-21 Video Ideas
Thank you to everyone who participated in the Explains brainstorm session! Below is a more consolidated list of the Explainer topics we have discussed, where you can select which ideas you're interested in sponsoring.
Keep in mind that selecting topics below doesn't mean you are automatically committed to sponsoring those videos. Once an idea gets at least 5 votes, we’ll ask you to confirm your sponsorship of each video. From there, we’ll continue to further hone these ideas and start writing our scripts together.
By the end of production, each P&A sponsor will receive their own customized version of the video with their logo and contact information. All videos come complete with English captions and audio description. This year, we’re adding options like Spanish narration, Spanish subtitles and ASL picture-in-picture.
Please fill out the form by Friday, September 25th
