We are currently members of OMPA, and stay involved with the community, regularly participating at OMSI After Dark, The Northwest Filmmakers Summit, The Oregon Ballet Theater performances, and recently shared a booth with Oregon Film at the Northwest Youth Career Expo.

We are always looking for field trips, partnerships and collaborations to offer our students real world experience as well as guest speakers to share their career experience and knowledge of their industry. If you or your production company can offer a tour, internship, would like to visit our school and talk to our students, or if you have any other idea to get graduates involved in the community, please let us know!  We are here to support our local film industry and provide skilled local makeup artist talent.
