Maine Media summer workshops 2014

Feb 17, 2014

Rockport — Maine Media Workshops + College has announced the summer programs for 2014. The new catalog cover features a stunning large format image by Greg Miller and is in the mail to more than 50,000 people who have taken workshops in the past or expressed interest in doing so in the future.

Highlights in the 2014 lineup include a new eight-week program in the essentials of film production and a new eight-week version of MMW+C’s very popular cinematography intensive. Both programs are meant for emerging filmmaking professionals looking to get the hands-on experience to work on set for major motion pictures. Just a few of the industry leaders coming in to teach in these programs include Steve Fierberg, ASC (“Entourage,” “Love and Other Drugs”); Andi Isaacs, “Twilight”; and Mo Flam, “The English Patient.”

Maine Media continues to offer the hundreds of one-day to one-week workshops it is known for in photography and filmmaking. The caliber and breadth of the instructors attracted to the Maine coast each year by this institution is truly surprising.  From National Geographic photographers to Oscar-winning sound engineers, visual media professionals come from around the world to share their knowledge in the beautiful, intense and focused environment Maine Media provides.

Maine Media Workshops also has been heavily investing in their Young Artists program for teen photographers, filmmakers, actors and designers, and renovations have finished on the dedicated residence hall for the teen summer program. More talented professional instructors are coming to teach this year then ever before. The program has grown nearly 30 percent since 2012 and MMW is expecting as much or more growth this year.

Founded in 1973, Maine Media Workshops + College is a nonprofit, non-traditional school that provides experiential education for students of all skill levels in film, photography, writing, multimedia and design. For more information, visit mainemedia.edu or call (877) 577-7700 (toll-free).
