Creative Manitoba is very pleased to partner with Erica Daniels of Kejic Productions to present Digital Media Production Training and Apprenticeship Opportunities for Indigenous Women.
This workshop series is presented in partnership with Film Training Manitoba, the Directors Guild of Canada – Manitoba District, and sponsored by Prime Pro Media
Participants will learn producing, directing, camera operation, audio, lighting, and editing in this 4-day interactive training program with Kejic Production’s Executive Producer Erica Daniels.
Participants who successfully complete the training will also receive part-time on-the-job apprenticeship opportunities working on a wide range of productions with Kejic Productions.
Kejic is an Anishinaabe word, which means The Sky. The name was given by Elder Dave Courchene Jr., which symbolizes there are no limits to what we can dream and achieve. We are in a time where we as Indigenous people, the original peoples of our homeland, need to be telling our own stories and representing the Indigenous voices and perspectives.
All workshops will be held in the 4th floor large classroom of Creative Manitoba at 245 McDermot Ave.
Saturday, November 2 9:00am – 4:30pm
