Echo Productions Watch Party and Virtual Q&A
Please RSVP to this event to receive the Zoom link and login information via email.
New video work made by youth in Echo Productions will be debuted at this special two-part event, which will include a live stream on Open Signal's Facebook, Twitch and YouTube accounts, followed by a virtual Q&A on Zoom with the participants and organizers.
The films were created by young men at the MacLaren Youth Correctional Facility, who have been at work since January—and throughout Governor Brown’s stay-at-home order—to create their original media pieces. The program was held in collaboration with Morpheus Youth Project, with support from Hope Partnership, Janus Youth Programs and the Oregon Youth Authority (OYA).
The films showcase powerful and creative new media works, including personal narrative, documentary, a breakdance film, sketch comedy and a cooking show.
Learn more about Echo Productions in this press release, as well as this blog post by instructor Jeff Oliver, who recalls his experience with the program in 2019, including a link to the youth’s completed film. Read and watch here.
The 2020 edition of Echo Productions is supported by the Juan Young Trust, the Pacific Power Foundation and the Herbert A. Templeton Foundation.
