CHARLESTON, W.Va. -- The second season of West Virginia State University's Creators Program workshop series will kick off with the West Virginia Film Office's "Business of Film -- Working with the Film Office" from 1 to 4 p.m. Sept. 7 at the WVSU Economic Development Center, 1506 Kanawha Blvd. W.
Participants in the free workshop will learn how the Film Office can provide assistance with various film projects, as well as how to support the Film Office's efforts across the state. Attendees will receive a Certificate of Participation that will count as one unit toward a Creators Certificate, awarded after the completion of 20 workshop units.
Other workshops scheduled for the fall include 10 Commandments for Creative Success (Sept. 24), Independent Publishing (Oct. 19), Producing 101 (Nov. 2) and Composing for New Media 101 (Nov. 16).
The Creators Program launched last year as a series of community workshops focusing on skills and knowledge essential to creating for mass media and art. WVSU partners with the Arts Council of Kanawha Valley and the West Virginia Film Office on the series. Workshops are designed for people of all skill levels, including students and others interested in expanding their creative endeavors.
