SATURDAY, APRIL 15, 12:30 PM BRINGING FOCUS TO DIGITAL MEDIA WITH MAX FRASER at YUKON SOVA, 3rd and Queen It’s a digital world, and for many filmmakers, the picture is blurry and needs focus. In this workshop Whitehorse screen producer Max Fraser will de-mystify this new medium: we look at funding options as well as creative, production and distribution aspects, using Max’s most recent project as a case study that participants will get to try out. Max’s production company Remembrance Films is about to release “Bond of Strangers – The OpHusky Digital Experience,” which is a web-based companion to his 2015 documentary film “Bond of Strangers – The Operation Husky Story.” The workshop will be divided into three parts. First, the process of the Canada Media Fund and other funding agencies. Second, a review of what is meant by a “Digital Media Component” with a look at selected examples. Third, participants will be among the first people in the whole world to try out The OpHusky Digital Experience and provide feedback. Bring your smart phone, touch screen tablet or laptop and be prepared to enter the digital world. Max Fraser is an independent Yukon filmmaker who is presently producing his first Digital Media Component, called “Bond of Strangers – The OpHusky Digital Experience.” Fraser recently completed two new television productions with financing from the Canada Media Fund, Yukon Film and other financing.
