Instructor

Devin Febbroriello Media Educator devin [at] opensignalpdx.org

I am a storyteller, a dreamer, an artist not afraid to push boundaries, a visually astute creative and a dedicated student of filmmaking. I dig deep conceptually, experiment insatiably, and am moved by matters of the heart. There is no character without backstory, or visual without thoughtful construct. I cherish drama, intellect and absurd humor alike with an energetic, charismatic approach. 

Considered a "filmmaking ninja" by my colleagues, my skill set is sharp, diverse and consistently being updated to keep up with technological advancements within the industry. From producing, to writing/directing, cinematography and editing I embody the "one-woman show".
