We all know that storytelling is important—but how do you keep your story relevant when you're telling it again and again? Drawing from his experiences at Boston College and beyond, Ravi Jain suggests how we can all use multimedia content to create meaningful messages with maximum impact.
Ravi Jain is a short form video evangelist with over 15 years experience creating web video. He conceived of the Boston College Minute in 2009 to tell stories of Boston College “one minute at a time.” In 2014, Ravi was one of the first artists selected for Boston’s public art installation, the Fenway 30 Second Cinema.
Ravi Jain has been producing online content for 20 years including several years in Stockholm, Sweden in the 1990s. His 2002 web friendly sitcom “Three Abreast” anticipated current trends in original short form content. His “talk show in a car” videoblog DriveTime was designated a “pop phenomena” by the Webby Awards when nominated in 2007.
Ravi currently develops multimedia and video content for Boston College’s Office of University Communications. One of his signature products, The Boston College Minute, remains one of the university’s most consistently popular video offerings. Prior to Boston College, he developed produced multimedia content for the PBS series American Experience.
Ravi teaches in the Digital Media program of Northeastern University’s College of Professional Studies and continues to produce his own video-based art.
He received his BA from Oberlin College in 1992 and his MFA from the Massachusetts College of Art & Design. He lives in Milton, Massachusetts with four other content creators (wife and three small children).
