Local Filmmaker Seeks Volunteers
Brice Habeger, a longtime JUMP Society Filmmaker, will be shooting a film this Friday and he’s looking for some help. He’s welcoming all experience levels and this will be a great opportunity to get involved in a local film…

Shooting at Centennial Hall on June 20th from 8 pm to 4 am. I am looking for grips, sound man, camera assistant, and a lighting tech. This is for a short film. I can’t afford to pay anybody, but I can feed you and provide a copy of the finished product. If you are at all interested contact me ASAP and let me know what you might want to help with. All experience levels are welcomed, I will work with those who have a real desire to learn.

Alaska Film Program
Governor Palin has signed SB 230 which re-establishes The Alaska Film Office and creates a film incentives program for Alaska.

… the bill is designed to make Alaska a competitive location in the global competition for billions of dollars in annual spending by the film and television industry, and attract investment that will put Alaskans to work while highlighting our state’s natural beauty.

To view the press release, please visit The Alaska Film Group website.

Thanks for reading, we’ll see you at the show!
