As we bid farewell to “Grimm” and welcome both “The Librarians” and “Portlandia” back for their next seasons this coming Spring and Summer – we wanted to share a very special program we were able to put together last summer with the help of the producers of these shows, Open Signal, the City of Portland and NBC/Universal.
Five Students were welcomed on to the sets, stages, locations and into the VFX studios for all of the major TV series shooting in Oregon during July and August of 2016. All of these shadow encounters were captured on film themselves and then edited down into five different “episodes” detailing some of the work the Camera, Grip, Electric and VFX departments are doing. We have been offering these “episodes” back out to high school digital media programs as a potential teaching tool.
We are hoping to continue this program in the future but we are currently working to secure appropriate funding for this and many other of our community and workforce programs. Interested craftspeople, creatives, teachers and students should contact us for more information on the available episodes and the future of the program.
