Storyboard 71—Students will work the queue

Student contractors will create subcomponents, etc., that they might then license (see "Licensing by student creators") for incorporation by fellow students who have product in the Prime-Time queue awaiting national debut. From the moment product enters the Prime-Time queue or perhaps the queue for a national contest being held at a 10-group (see "The 10-group advantage," exhibit "N"), contractor-licensors will begin submitting offers to enhance it.

Student contractors will thus "work the queue," fine-tuning product for a higher impact presentation, perhaps for the next day's Prime-Time edition.

● For example, student creator-licensors might submit contextually relevant simulations, customized games, puzzles, graphics, video clips or state-of-the-art special effects.Still other student-licensors might build sound "modules" such as thematic music fragments and sound bites in the voice of a cartoon character such as Homer Simpson.

● And the reward for providing a masterful student-built soundtrack with pumping bass, shrieking violins, ambient techno and ooh-ah state-of-the-art graphics and video? A good time creating it, soaring levels of experience and insight . . . and national (byline) recognition.

 

Contractors will be recognized via a byline whenever their subcomponent or other contribution is part of a published product. Further recognition will be via the Contractors' Index, serving not just as a national scorecard but as a directory for use by potential licensees.
