Inspiring the New Generation of Filmmakers

George Fox University is hosting a Film Production Institute for high school students this summer at its campus in Newberg. Oregon Film community members are entitled to a $500 scholarship for their children and dependents. This is in appreciation for Oregon Film’s collaboration with George Fox to use the Newberg campus as a regular filming location.

Professor Alex Chung, an alumnus of the Sundance Film Festival, who has written, directed and produced numerous projects, optioned several screenplays, and has crewed on dozens of features and short films in varying capacities, will lead the institute.


Students will get the opportunity to:

  • Work with 4K cameras
  • Write scripts and edit footage on industry-standard software
  • Act, produce, and direct their own stories
  • Screen their work at a showcase at the end of the week, potentially at the Cameo Theater!

This is a residential institute in Newberg for 6 days, and 5 nights (Sunday, June 23 – Friday, June 28th). Students will get to experience film studies at a comprehensive university campus, working alongside current students, living in the GFU dorms and earning college credit. They will also get a $4,000 scholarship to GFU for completing the program.

All members of the Oregon Film Community can register their children at this site.

Any questions on the institute can be directed to Dr. Shawn Daley, Institute Academic Director, at [email protected]
