The Oregon Media Arts Fellowship(s) provides financial and other support for production expenses to enable Oregon film or video artists to create or complete new work or works in progress. The Media Arts Fellowship recognizes and assists media artists whose work shows exceptional promise and who have demonstrated a commitment to film or video art. The Oregon Arts Commission, the Gordon D. Sondland and Katherine J. Durant Foundation, and Oregon Public Broadcasting fund the program. The Media Arts Fellowship program is administered by the Northwest Film Center/Portland Art Museum. Additional support is provided by the Oregon Governor's Office of Film & Television and Chambers Communications.
In addition to the cash fellowship(s) to be awarded, Chambers Communications has contributed a studio package to the Oregon Media Arts Fellowship program. The studio award consists of a one week use of Chambers’ video, audio, or stage facilities. The stage is a 14,400 sq.ft stage with AC, wood floor for set construction, and grid.
Post-production facilities include use of an Avid Nitris HD suite with editor. The audio portion consists of a new 5.1 Surround mixing suite with Pro Tools HD, audio engineer, and tracking room with foley. The winner may choose to use 2 weeks of stage and one week of either audio or video post, or three weeks of stage, but no more than one week in audio or video post.
