The Center for Intelligence and Security Studies recently held their 2nd annual training exercise “The Days of Intrigue”. Over two days, the intelligence analysts-in-training are given a fictitious terrorist plot they must uncover using artificial news and web material. At the end of the exercise, the students brief a visiting policy maker to mimic what analysts actually do in the field. U.S. Representative Travis Childers (D-Miss) was on hand to be briefed. The event was a huge success for the program and I was able to produce some “fake” news content for the exercise. Here are a few stills and an overview video showcasing the work Media and Documentary Projects did to help make the event as authentic as possible. It was a fun project and great opportunity to help train the students who will one day serve ┬áthis country in intelligence analysis.
