Blue Chalk Media were the winners the 2019 $15,000 “Winter Season Grant” – provided by the OregonMade Creative Foundation and Travel Oregon – and have now successfully created two short films of “moving postcard stories” based on the brief to make a film series that would “captivate and encourage people to experience the winter season for themselves.”
“We pitched a series of short narrative pieces that highlighted different, often overlooked, winter areas of Oregon. The resulting films are a love letter to Oregon’s Alvord Desert and the Suttle Lake near Sisters. For this project, we were given the freedom to create something that we personally found compelling which resulted in some of our team’s favorite moments of the year.” – Blue Chalk Media
The purpose of this grant was to support local content creators who are producing high-quality, innovative multimedia content about Oregon that inspires travel to or around the state.
