I got word late last week that I was accepted to receive a JumpStart Mentorship Program through SAW Video in Ottawa! I submitted my application in May for an experimental video project that will explore the intimate relationship humans have with their beds throughout life. I don’t know all the details yet, but let’s just say that I’m really excited. We’re intended to have a kick off meeting before the end of the month. This video project will be a first step towards bigger projects!
It’s a year long process, culminating in a screening mid-2017 at SAW. As a recipient of the grant, I receive:
- a one-year producing membership at SAW Video
- a $400 honorarium to cover material costs
- 20 hours of consultation with a personal mentor
- two mandatory introductory workshops in production and post-production
- two elective workshops
- up to $1,200 in access to SAW Video equipment
- an opportunity to screen their completed work at Club SAW
2017 is shaping up to be a solid year!
