Last year Blue Chalk Media won the $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” (one of which is available above) that were designed to, “captivate and encourage people to experience the winter season for themselves.”
The Oregon Made Creative Foundation in conjunction with Travel Oregon are pleased to announce the winners of the first ever Winter Season Grant. The Grant is part of an ongoing content partnership between Travel Oregon and the Oregon Made Creative Foundation. There was a large and exciting application turnout with many creative and well-qualified ideas but Gordon Klco and Rob Finchs’ pitch, “Wish You Were Here,” took the top spot. Klco grew up in the high desert of the Rocky Mountains and his “love for skiing and kayaking led him into the adventure film world” where he started his career.
