Fall 2024 Production Cohort Applications Close July 12th

Fall 2024 Production Cohort Applications Close July 12th

Build a foundation for your filmmaking journey through this 5-month program.

Applications for the Fall 2024 cohort are open now and close July 12th!

Open Signal's production cohort is a 5-month program designed to support the creation of media you're excited about! Whether you're just starting out or ready to move your project forward, we are here to help you figure out exactly what you need. This opportunity is open to individuals and teams who want to create impactful video work in a friendly and supportive learning environment. We ask that applicants are Open Signal members and reside in the Portland Metro area.

Work one-on-one with an Open Signal facilitator who is as passionate about your project as you are. They will guide you through the production process, tailoring our media education and resources to fit your unique story  — we offer training on camera operation, soundstage as a set, and editing, as well as equipment kits for offsite production. You'll meet with your facilitator every other week to make sure you have what you need to stay on track.

Through this program you'll also connect with a vibrant community of media makers who, just like you, are diligently working on a project. Share updates, ask for and receive valuable critiques, and learn from one another throughout the program.

The Fall 2024 cohort runs from August 13, 2024 – January 17th, 2025. Apply here.
