Workshop with Don White

MediaNet and ViFPA are pleased to announce that the legendary Don White is coming from Vancouver February 9th & 10th (last weekend of the Victoria Film Festival), to offer two workshops in developing documentary structure

The Saturday evening workshop “Developing Basic Documentary Structure” is open to all MediaNet members (admission $10). It is appropriate for all members interested in creating documentaries.

The Sunday day long intensive workshop has very limited enrolment. Interested members must email a one page outline by December 21st and attend the Saturday evening session. The workshop is most appropriate for members with a project in development (cost is $125)

People who have participated in Don’s intensives say the process can be painful – but is truly helpful.

All workshops (except where noted) :   $5 for members (for MediaNet or Cinevic members unless otherwise noted), $25 general public.
Registration and Info: 381-4428.

-Thanks to all of you who have expressed interest in the Photoshop Interest Group. Watch for this group to launch in January.

-The Documentary Interest Group will hibernate over Christmas. Watch for a new schedule of docs and events in January.

-The Sony PD100 is out of commission until further notice. Please bear with us as we will be a camera short for the near term.
