Intermediate Editing class
We are often asked, "When are you going to offer an intermediate editing class?"  Well, we have heard you, and now we are happy to announce a new class - Intermediate Editing with Adobe Premiere Pro.  The class will take you through some of the more advanced techniques of video editing, including color correction, keying (green screen), multi-cam editing, keyframing, exporting options, and how Premiere Pro works so well with other Adobe applications such as Photoshop and After Effects.
Join us for this two-day class, Tuesday and Wednesday, November 12 and 13, 6 to 9 pm. For more information, click here.

Intro to Studio Production
Letter from the Executive Director
OMF has been providing Services, Education, and Tools aimed at putting the power of the media in the hands of the people since 2003.  We launched Denver's only people-powered, Public Access TV station, DOM in 2006. On Friday, December 6th, we invite you to help us celebrate DOM's 7th anniversary!
You may not know, but DOM is a truly revolutionary approach to TV. The channels are programmed by YOU. Thousands of shows have been produced by community members, and when you vote on those shows on our website, your votes automatically drive the schedule for channel 57. We will be giving awards to the top-rated new shows from 2013, as voted/rated by you, the viewers.


For a suggested donation of $7, you can enjoy great food from Illegal Pete's and Jason's Deli, a cocktail from Breckenridge Distillery, a glass of wine from Wines Off Wynkoop or a pint from Wynkoop Brewing Company!  Did we mention there will also be a photo booth and live music in Studio A?  Not mention over 100 items to bid on in our silent auction!  It WILL be the party you don't want to miss!  

Friday, December 6th 
700 Kalamath St. Denver, 80204
Doors at 7pm, Music starts at 8:00

Tell us a little bit about yourself.

I grew up mostly in northeastern Wyoming, but I was born in Denver, so I still consider myself a native! I have a BA in religion from The University of the South in Sewanee, Tennessee and a MA in theology from Denver Seminary. I've lived in New Mexico; Texas; Wyoming; Tennessee; Washington, DC; and Summit County, Colorado, but I've been a full-time Denver resident for five years. The best thing I've ever done was walk across Spain on the Camino de Santiago pilgrimage. I love all things orange, movies, brunch, and my two cats, Harry and Giuseppe. 

How did you become involved with Open Media Foundation?

I came across OMF through a basic search for nonprofits in Denver that offered internships. TV and film have always been a huge part of my life, so the opportunity to gain some experience in that field, in addition to getting to serve the community and learn a little more about development, immediately piqued my interest. The more I learned about OMF, the more I excited I got about coming on board!
