Open Signal Labs is proud to announce the second year of its Black filmmaker fellowship cohort, digitally convening six emerging artists based in Portland.
2020 Open Signal Labs Fellows Ansar El Muhammad, Joshua Hatkin, Simon Reta, Jordan Thierry, Kaylah Wilson and Masimbaashe “Cookie” Zvovushe will take part in this virtual panel held via Zoom with special guest Crystal Rose Holmes, producer of Legion (Fox) and post-production supervisor of Black Lightning (CW) and Fargo (FX).
The panelists will discuss working in the film and television industry, now and in the post-COVID era, followed by a brief opportunity for viewers to ask questions.
Open Signal Labs creates space specifically for Black mediamakers to create new film narratives that innovate artistically and technically, pushing the boundaries of what storytelling can look, feel and sound like. It is an initiative of Open Signal, a media arts center located on Northeast Martin Luther King, Jr. Boulevard in Portland.
