Director’s Letter A crew call went out in an eUpdate to OMPA members last month for a new project recently landed in Oregon thanks to the increase in the available funds in Oregon’s OPIF program. Thank you OMPA members for working to pass that increase! As the i-OPIF was expanded as well we have been educating Oregon’s independent filmmakers on the incentive program for their projects of $75,000 or more. Activity to use the i-OPIF is pretty low, and we have over $400,000 of i-OPIF incentive remaining to offer our Oregon independent filmmakers through June of next year. A story explaining a little more about the process for applying for i-OPIF is included in this month’s Callsheet, including a list of producers and projects that have benefited from it. Hit them up for advice if you are preparing your own i-OPIF (or OPIF) submission! Having also added incentives for post-production and video game production to i-OPIF, our producers are now educating themselves to take best advantage of incentives to generate more business in these top-notch sectors of Oregon’s industry. Be on the lookout for an announcement when those additional tax credits to fund the OPIF expansion go on sale this fall. They are available to any Oregonian who wishes to purchase them. We welcomed a brave new film festival in Portland last month and are excited that once again Oregon raises attention from the national community as a creative super center. Not to detract from other long-standing festivals throughout the state, the Portland Film Festival, like BendFilm, the Ashland Independent Film Festival, Music Fest NW and Tech Fest NW (among many others), promotes the professionalism and cutting edge creative industry of Oregon’s production and entertainment industries. Filmmakers of note and celebrities in attendance included singer K.D. Lang and actor John Malkovich as well as many of our own local legends. Keep being excellent,

Tom McFadden Executive Director Oregon Media Production Association

i-OPIF and the Independent Filmmaker: Indie Filmmaker Funds Available Now! In 2009, OMPA organized a network of filmmakers, legislators and industry advocates from around the state to pass the i-OPIF amendment to the Oregon Production Investment Fund (designed to attract production into Oregon) which designates 5% of OPIF to Oregon-based filmmakers, with a lower minimum budget of $75,000 than that required for OPIF (which is $1 million minimum). Comprehensive i-OPIF

application and rules are available by clicking here. What follows are some highlights of the program.

Requirements: • Must be an Oregon resident producing a movie or TV show or series (including documentary) for release to theaters, video or the internet. • Video game & Post-Production projects now also qualify (2013 Legislative Amendment). • Not allowed: Commercials, Newscasts, Sporting Events. • Budget must be over $75,000 and under $1,000,000. • Must be legal: - Carry insurance - Pay minimum wage - Interns must receive school credit • Must have a CPA audit of your payroll to get your rebate. Benefits: • Cash rebates get turned around quickly. • Good exercise in proper expense accounting. • 10% to 20% rebate on Oregon production costs. • Makes money available to low budget independent and local productions. • Supports keeping the labor in Oregon. • Encourages purchasing from local vendors.

Tips from i-OPIF Filmmakers: • Funds are limited so submit your application as early as possible. Funds renew each year (in July) -- as long as we have an OPIF program. • Proper accounting is important. Make sure you bring someone onto the project who can handle the accounting. • If you can’t yet prove full funding, submit anyway with whatever funding you have lined up. • Submit a Finance Plan, professionally presented such as you would submit to financiers. If you haven’t written a professional finance plan, find someone to help you who has. • Include a detailed budget. If you haven’t written a professional budget, find someone to help you who has. • Include a script. If you haven’t written a professional script, find someone to help you who has. • The Film Office is there to help you. • OMPA can connect you to qualified service providers (legal, payroll, production coordinators, producers, funding consultation, Associate Producers etc.).

Clackamas County Business and Economic Development Unveils Online Film and Media Permitting Process Clackamas County Business and Economic Development has unveiled a new one-stop online permitting application for film and media production enterprises wishing to film anywhere in Clackamas County. In partnership with the Governor’s Office of Film and Television, Clackamas County is promoting the regional development of the film, video and multimedia industry in order to increase the industry revenues and investment county-wide. Clackamas County Business and Economic Development division serves as the primary liaison between film/media productions, cities and agencies. It is responsible for marketing and attracting film and media-related businesses to Clackamas County for the purpose of economic development; for assisting productions with the permitting process; and for connecting and facilitating communications between Clackamas County communities and productions. The film and media production initiative is an emerging economic driver within the county. Production costs, employee compensation and tax payments account for more than $200 million in annual GDP and more than 5,000 jobs. The new county-wide permitting process stemmed from outreach conducted by Business and Economic Development staff while researching growth strategies for the emerging film and media cluster. Staff learned that lack of consistent and uniform permitting throughout the county could discourage film companies from choosing filming locations within the county. After researching permitting

processes throughout the state and nationally, Clackamas County developed the county-wide one-stop permitting process for all potential filming locations. “We have an incredibly diverse landscape of urban, agricultural, small towns and mountain settings perfect for film locations,” said Clackamas County Economic Development Manager Catherine Comer. “We wanted to do everything we possibly could to make the permitting process easy and uncomplicated.” The result: this new online tool that allows filmmakers to apply for filming in Clackamas County with just a few computer keystrokes. Once the permit application has been submitted, respective cities are notified of potential filming taking place in their local jurisdictions while the county manages permitting for unincorporated areas. Each jurisdiction is responsible for collecting its own fees and issues the respective permit. Clackamas County’s economic team led the effort to build the online form as an effort to assist in the growth of the film industry within the county; however this has been a collaboration between the Economic Development staff and the county’s Department of Technology Services, as well as cities and industry leaders throughout the county. Shaun Gavin, location manager for NBC’s Grimm said the website has served their production needs well. “The website is easy to navigate and completing the online permit form was a breeze,” Gavin said. “Clackamas County has been a stellar partner for us as we continue to

grow Oregon’s film and video industry,” Vince Porter, Executive Director of the Governor’s Office of Film and Television, said. “Having a one stop permit process is a huge step. We look forward to working with the county on even more projects

down the line.” To learn more about Clackamas County Business and Economic Development and its film and media initiatives, clck here or contact Jamie Johnk at 503-742-4413 or emailclackamasfilm@clackamas.us.

OMPA Welcomes New Member John Higbie The Pacific Northwest has acquired another talent in the VFX production industry. John Higbie, a recent transplant from Los Angeles, has been working in various areas of visual effects since the mid 80s. He began his career in his hometown of Detroit shooting matte paintings for Evil Dead II. After moving to L.A. in 1987, he spent many years freelancing as a motion control camera operator for live-action, miniature photography and stop-motion. This led him to a staff position at Digital Domain in camera and motion control. After leaving Digital Domain in 2005, he started work on his own indie sci-fi feature Amsteroid. Completely virtually set, this project got him fully immersed in all aspects of digital VFX. “My DP Mike Karp, who was a tracking and layout supervisor,” says Higbie, “looked at what I was doing in CG and said I was like a duck on water. He followed up by hiring me for a year in Montreal as a tracking and layout artist on Journey to the Center of the Earth 3D, and it was wonderful.” Later, stop-motion re-entered his career with a stint at LAIKA on Coraline. Also around that time, his technical background in motion control was steering him into a lot of engineering work. He recently led Panavision’s two-year project to create their first gyro-stabilized remote camera head. Says Higbie: “I learned a lot on that project, but even more important than the technical stuff was the managerial experience. It was a long-term project, and you have to set realistic goals at the outset, and then keep your team on track without killing them in the process.” John’s core passion remains in VFX and creating fantastic imagery. He’s nearly done with the CG and compositing on Amsteroid, working mainly in Maya, C4D and After Effects. Given his background, John’s approach for VFX is multi-disciplinary. He

points out that even in an age when digital techniques can deliver anything a director asks for, many will opt for capturing an effect in-camera if possible. “There is a subtle signature to a live performance, where uncontrolled, organic elements are allowed in,” he says. “Even when LAIKA uses a CG technique, they are careful to incorporate a human performance as part of the workflow for that.” While John enjoys working in Maya and other CG apps, there’s still part of his psyche oriented to the physical world. “This is not unhelpful while working as a digital artist,” he notes. John can be reached at jhig@higbie. com. Click here to see clips from his highly-stylized movie Amsteroid.

Welcome new OMPA member John Higbie!

Filmmaker Magazine’s 25 New Faces of Independent Film: Three from the Northwest Screening Sept 12 at 7pm, Whitsell Auditorium The Northwest Film Center’s continuing commitment to highlighting cinematic works produced in the Northwest region is housed within its Northwest Tracking series. On Thursday, September 12, the Film Center is thrilled to present a program of three films by a trio of Northwest-based makers. Filmmaker Magazine’s annual “25 New Faces of Independent Film” shines a spotlight on emerging filmmakers to keep an eye on. This year’s list includes three Northwest filmmakers whose work is finding national, as well as regional, attention. The program includes Seattle filmmakers Ewan McNicol and Anna Sandiland’s The Roper, in which Kendrick, a young calf roper in Louisiana, dreams of one day making it to the Las Vegas rodeo finals; Seattle filmmaker Scott Blake’s Surveyor, in which a government agent surveyor in the last days of the MexicanAmerican War attempts to return home after mapping land on the western frontier, in a journey that becomes a nightmarish trek through a gothic American landscape; and Corvallis filmmaker Nandan Rao’s Hawaiian Punch, an unconventional buddy movie in which two young Mormon men on a mission term in Hawaii spend

their days cliff diving, moped riding, and conversing about relationships and religion. (Total program running time: 91 mins.) Director Nandan Rao will be in attendance for a post-film Q&A.

MOPAN News: Eugene Celebration Film Zone and August Meeting Notes Several MOPAN members and friends volunteered at the Eugene Celebration Film Zone last weekend. The ECFilmZone is a dedicated area within the Eugene Celebration which showcased samples and representatives from several local festivals including The Archaeology Channel International Film Festival, DisOrient Asian American Film Festival of Oregon and The Eugene International Film Festival. Eugene’s Downtown Initiative for the Visual Arts (DIVA) presented several of its programs including The Shaggy Dog Project, The Youth Visions Teen Challenge, and the OpenLens Festival. The event was hosted by the Bijou Metro and sponsored by Cascade Production Rentals. The Bijou has long been a popular art cinema in Eugene, and recently opened its second location, the Bijou Metro, right in the heart of downtown. For many, The ECFilmZone was the first opportunity to check out the new, four-screen theater

Jeff Johnston’s background in woodworking and building things came in quite handy during his work on the Oregon-made indie production, Bad Exorcists. Johnston built, rigged, and otherwise set up lighting and electric on several location sets earlier this summer. He presented some of his work and shared stories at the August MOPAN meeting.

and learn about Eugene’s film scene. The event attracted a very diverse group of films and filmmakers, which was very much in the spirit of the Bijou Metro and the Eugene Celebration. Earlier this month, MOPAN Vice President Jeff Johnston shared photos and stories from his recent work on the independent feature film, Bad Exorcists, which was shot in and around Portland. He worked as a gaffer and grip and his presentation detailed many of the lighting setups used in the film. Johnston is currently doing gaffer and grip duty on the in-production feature St. Ruby, filming in Springfield and Eugene, OR. Next month’s MOPAN meeting will be Thursday, September 12 at 6:30 PM. The location is yet to be determined. Check the MOPAN facebook page or blog, or click here for updates.

MOPAN President Erik Talbert poses with ECFilmZone Director Katina Andoniadis and the well-known “production people” cut outs. The black and white cutouts were donated to MOPAN and have appeared at many events over the years. They were created by artist David Joyce, whose work also appears at the Eugene airport.

Reconnect with Fellow Actors at APP-NW’s Actors Happy Hour As the old Cheers theme song notes, “You wanna be where you can see / our troubles are all the same / You wanna be where everybody knows your name.” For actors, finding a place like that can be tough! It’s no secret that actors lead complex lives. They have to balance training and commitment to their craft against irregular work hours, self-promotion, and investment in their careers... all while trying to maintain something of a “normal” life! Thankfully, from 6:00 pm to 9:00 pm on the third Monday of every month there IS a place where everyone in the room understands the challenges actors face in their lives and careers: Actors Happy

Hour at Foster-Powell’s newest “hot-spot” Bar Maven. Owner Bashar Farrah is opening the doors of his newly-remodeled establishment to Northwest actors so they can reconnect with people who “get them.” Bashar is even offering special discounts to members of the

Alliance of Professional Performers Northwest (remember to bring your APP-

NW pins, or get them at the door). So come on down, Northwest Actors - share a drink and a laugh at the “no host bar,” meet your fellow performers and talk about issues affecting your career and your industry! “Actors Happy Hour” is brought to you by APP-NW on the third Monday of every month.

The Northwest Film Center presents: The Machine Which Makes Everything Disappear The Northwest Film Center presents the winner of the Documentary Directing Prize at this year’s Sundance Film Festival, The Machine Which Makes Everything Disappear. The film runs September 6th - 8th at the Whitsell Auditorium at 7:00 pm each night. Click here to view the

trailer.

“The story begins with an experiment. A filmmaker in the country of Georgia posts an ad inviting youth to audition for her film. Facing the camera, the hopefuls confess their struggles and dreams. These raw interviews unfold seamlessly into cinematic slivers of Georgian life. A teenager awaits news of his father’s surgery. A girl anticipates her wedding. The governor of a tiny village faces a monumental decision. A soldier attempts to link his imprisoned brother to the world outside, and a young woman confronts the mother who abandoned her. These threads form a fluid Altman-esque collage of characters—and a nation— teetering on the brink of change. It’s a world where tradition and

modernity subtly intermingle: singing traditional ballads is as common a selfexpression as listening to hip-hop or playing online poker. Mixing metanarrative with heightened visual aesthetics, the film intuitively penetrates individual lives to conjure a richly layered, indelible portrait of a society, brilliantly becoming more than the sum of its parts.”—Sundance Film Festival.
