POWGirls Announces two Workshops for Summer 2017!

POWGirls launched in March of 2014 and has hosted eight successful workshops serving over 80 girls in the Portland Metro area.  Watch POWGirls Films Here. We are excited to announce our Summer 2017 dates:


Summer Workshop I: INTRO TO FILMMAKING, June 19-23, 2017
Summer Workshop II: ADVANCED DOCUMENTARY WORKSHOP, July 17-21, 2017

 

Summer Workshop I: INTRO TO FILMMAKING, June 19-23, 2017 – SIGN UP HERE

Over the course of five days, participants will collaboratively develop, film and edit an original short film. Learn collaborative story creation, story boarding, script writing, DSLR camera operation, audio recording, lighting, and post-production video using Adobe Premiere Pro.

 


Summer Workshop II: ADVANCED DOCUMENTARY WORKSHOP, July 17-23, 2017-
SIGN UP HERE

PRODUCT AND LEARNING
Over the course of seven days, we will help participants to work with a team to develop, film and edit a 1-3 minute promo piece for a non-profit client. See this example that the POWGirls made for The Portland Kitchen.

The instruction portion of POWGirls will consist of media production training; pre-production (collaborative concept development, working with a client) camera operation, audio recording, and post-production using industry-standard software. This is a great addition to complement a portfolio of narrative work.


POWGirls workshops cost $250 + $25 registration fee. Partial and full Scholarships available. No one will be turned away due to lack of funds.
