Reviews for PCI Media Impact, Inc.

Rating: 5 stars  

We worked with PCI Media Impact on an entertainment education radio soap-opera for communities in India, with the objective of engaging these communities on campaigns for energy access and distributed solar power solutions. Media Impact delivered high quality work, that included on-site research, engagement with our partners, the production of 8x30' episodes and the placement of the program on the state radio, within a very short time frame and budget and with a high level of quality. Media Impact staff were not only very professional and knowledgeable, but also available, responsive, respectful and open for constructive engagement with the various partners involved in the work.
This work lead to another partnership - suggested by PCI ME - for the development of the climate change piece of the Comics Uniting Nations project, where again PCI Media Impact delivered high quality work that included a dynamic, multi-stakeholder narrative development process and around the clock consultations and feed-back management of multiple partners. As from before, its staff were very professional, respectful and proactive.

PCI Media impact spearheaded drama production in an entertainment-wildlife conservation education project that aimed at addressing bushmeat issues in Tanzania. It was and still remains a great success with a remarkable positive change thanks to PCI media impact. We also came up with elephant and rhino poaching song, known as A DEBT OF COURTECY educating the public on need to conserve these creatures and stop poaching

The work of PCI media impact is truly inspiring. The way they connect with the local communities where they are trying to get a change and raise awareness of different issues like environment, women empowerement, and others, is unique and powerful. They really understand the power of story telling.

PCI tells the stories that connect people to their environment. Working with PCI has opened my mind and heart to the power of storytelling for changing the way people see the ocean. I look forward to working with the professionals at PCI for many years to come.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

I would provide PCI with millions of dollars so they could work in more places telling more stories making connections that matter and changing the world.

I was a student in PCI's two-week intensive at UCLA's World Arts and Culture Department this past Spring. As an arts activist and a former film student I was astounded at the amount of new material that I got to interact with when it came to subjects I already knew fairly well. Sean, Alex, Mischa, and their collaborators set our class up for success and allowed us a space to think about what we could do for our community at UCLA.
Though their initiative I am currently working on programming for our incoming Freshman class. My efforts were inspired by the PCI workshop and continue on in that vein.
