Film Industry Workshop December 8 at WVSU EDC
Participants will learn the role of the Film Office and its services; how to find production work in the state; production planning; working with city/county officials, business leaders and property owners to secure locations; and more.
“We’re looking to target emerging and established filmmakers, crew personnel, production companies, even high school and college students,” said Pam Haynes, director of the West Virginia Film Office. Haynes and other Film Office staff members will provide instruction, including an overview of West Virginia’s tax credit program.
The West Virginia Film Office supports commerce by recruiting motion picture, television and related media productions to the state. The office connects clients to the state’s workforce and businesses; acts as a liaison with clients and governmental agencies, communities and property owners; scouts and photographs potential filming locations; and assists with logistical and technical support on projects. The office also administers the West Virginia Film Industry Investment Act, a competitive tool used to recruit film industry business.
The Creators Program launched earlier this year and offers a variety of workshops on topics such as film production, photography, and writing. Workshops are held at WVSU’s EDC, as a part of the organization’s DigiSo digital and social media program. Workshops are a collaboration of WVSU Extension Service, the West Virginia Film Office and the Arts Council of Kanawha Valley.
Registration information is available online at www.DigiSo.org or by calling (304) 720-1401. The WVSU EDC is located at 1506 Kanawha Boulevard West in Charleston.
