Desert Island Studios Hosts First “Level Up” Workshop

Desert Island Studios in Portland hosted its first Level Up Workshop last weekend. According to the hosts and the attendees, the event was a tremendous success.

With these Level Up Workshops, DIS strives to provide educational content that will be relevant to a variety of experience levels, accompanied by targeted outreach meant to entice participants for whom the material is most appropriate.

In the wake of the pandemic and recent strikes, DIS feels it’s an important time to equip future generations of media makers with the invaluable tools and knowledge they will need to be successful in their careers.

This first workshop focused on the camera department and increasing participant’s skills in this arena.

DIS has also determined the dates for the rest of the workshops.

The tentative schedule is as follows:

June 29th, 10 AM to 4 PM – Light Design and Onset Safety

September TBD – Filmmaker Career Advancement Toolkit

October TBD – The World of Production Design

December TBD – Film Festival Strategy

This program is partially funded by Oregon Film through its Creative Opportunity Program in partnership with the Portland Events & Film Office.
