Project Production Assistant Project 27
About the Company:
At Disney, we're storytellers. We make the impossible, possible. We do this through utilizing and developing cutting-edge technology and pushing the envelope to bring stories to life through our movies, products, interactive games, parks and resorts, and media networks.
Working at ESPN is unlike anything else. That's because we're always finding new ways to interact with fans, however and wherever they connect with sports. When you have the latest technology, game-changing ideas and world-class talent on your team, every day is extraordinary. Project 27 is about recreating the 1927 Yankees season in Real-Time, starting this April. This is a truly innovative project: a blend of longform, documentary sensibility with intense social media publishing.
Along with form writing about the season, we will be updating events on social media, as if they were happening now (e.g. we will be tweeting out 1927 events to the day, hour and even minute that they occurred). Project 27 will be a 12 month assignment.
