FRAME Highlight: Student Support Services

One amazing evolution of  UAF FRAME-Film Production Services is being able to connect with other programs of the University of Alaska Fairbanks system, and learn more what they do. Here’s an example of a FRAME project I mentored this spring with a film major at the helm.

The Emerging Scholars Academy prepares incoming, first-time-freshman for college, and provides 8 academic credits saving the average student over $1000 in classes.

The Alaska Lens – A Vision Statement

Why see Alaska for what it is?

Because if we don’t show it, then someone else will get it wrong.

This vision statement underlies the focus of my efforts in founding the

Film Program and FRAME at the University of Alaska Fairbanks

The Alaskan Lens captures the people, stories, places, and unique viewpoint of Alaskans by Alaskans. Alaskan film is infused with the voices of history and cultural knowledge, and embedded in the geographic wonder of the North. Alaska film students are asked to create content that addresses the strengths and weaknesses of our isolation and interdependence. They are encouraged to make films that are self-reflective of the Alaskan diversity of language, cultural complexities, and strong traditions of Northern peoples. The Alaskan Lens will seek partnerships with established filmmakers of the North and South and serve to bridge the needs of today’s students with the future of digital storytelling.

Students will be prepared in both conceptual and artistic expression as well as technical and professional expertise. They will be strongly prepared to continue their education in graduate programs, work in a career path, or venture into the field on a path of their own making. Our graduates will have both clarity and capacity to focus their vision on the world.
