Governor Kitzhaber’s annual address to Oregon’s Film, TV and Media communities last week was an excellent re-cap of the success that Oregon had in 2012. The largest crowd to date filled the 400 seats, stood along the walls and crouched in the aisles. The audience was treated to a clip from Portlandia’s third season (introduced by Carrie Brownstein), as well as a clip from Redwood Highway (introduced by Gus Van Sant). Film industries across the entire state were able to come to gether via live feed. Mid Oregon Production Arts Network (MOPAN) in Eugene, Southern Oregon Film and Television (SOFaT) in Ashland and Eastern Oregon University in Le Grand were part of the annual review.
The OR Film Office honored individuals from Clackamas County and the Portland Police department with Film Advocate Awards for their dedication to the film industry by going above and beyond to streamline and assist the various productions that come to Oregon. Leverage, and all those at Electric Entertainment, were thanked for four great years by planting four trees in neighborhoods in Portland. What a “Portland” way to say thanks, huh? It was a successful review, reminding us that we are all working toward great things!
Pacific Grip & Lighting promises to continue to help the community grow and thrive in all the ways we can. My favorite course of action? Buying locally! Check out the video to learn about PGL’s relationship with Oregon vendor, ATI.
Welcome to the New Year! 2012 was great, but we have a feeling that 2013 is going to be bigger, badder and better! We are bursting with pride for the first-rate city we live in. More times this year than any other, we heard about what a helpful, kind, resourceful, flexible, encouraging, fun and talented community Portland has, from people all over the country. From New York to Philly to Los Angeles, envy for Stumptown is flourishing. In 2012 , Portland helped to create three awesome TV shows, multiple indie features and commercials galore. Darn straight we did. And the strength of our community will allow us to build on our success and continue to grow and learn. But, let’s not get too big for our britches, alright? We don’t want to be *those guys* who stop practicing the basics. Of course, Pacific Grip is here to help! Watch to learn (or re-learn) how to fold a bag it. Yes, that is a skill! Happy New Year!
