Attend the Premiere

Frame It Up is Now Global! Real Time. Online.

In 2014, Frame It Up was launched as a response to a very important need: people don’t know how to create with other people. The need wasn't creativity, the need was creative collaboration. Working on a creative team is a challenge but when the team rallies together behind a creative vision there is almost nothing that can keep that vision from becoming a reality.

As we move into the future, more and more opportunities will happen in online digital environments. The time for preparing for this is now. The time for you to get prepared is right now.

Whether your career is in finance or film, engineering or editing, demolition or directing, civil engineering or cinematography, the competencies gained from learning how to create digital content on a team will provide you with the essential leadership competencies needed to be successful in the mission-field and in the marketplace.

Along with the all-new global Frame It Up 1.0 and 2.0 this May, we are also offering two free webinars in April so you can learn more about this exciting experience.

10 REASONS TO GET EXCITED ABOUT

2

Creative Collaboration with Remote Teams

Become a part of a cohort of creatives from around the globe as you get to dream up and execute a variety of storytelling projects in real time - navigating time zones, cultures and government Stay-Home-Notices. (We can’t think of a way we’d rather spend our quarantine than innovating alongside you!)

3

Frame It Up Tool Boxes (that’s right, treats!)

All FIU participants will receive a package with everything needed to create the FIU experience from the comfort of your own home. And yes, we’re even including hand-sanitizer and… yes… toilet paper! (insert the hallelujah chorus)

4

A Unique Look at the Filmmaking World

Really and truly, you will get to experience a side of real-world media production that no other Frame It Up participant has experienced before. You will get to create high quality productions using the same digital technology that film-industry professionals are taking advantage of today.

5

Growing Your Media Portfolio

All FIU participants will walk away from this event with a media portfolio containing an individual film, two group films, and more! Use your portfolio as a tool to further your filmmaking and creative journey, both in media applications, and with other creatives.

6

Readiness For Your Future

Creative Startups, Fortune 500 Businesses, and Missions-Based Organizations are actively searching for confident individuals that can lead teams virtually. Your FIU experience will provide you with an additional layer of understanding as you will be learning in real-time how to work alongside a global team.

7

Focused Mentoring with Media Mentors

Joining us we have experienced FIU alum returning to provide individualised mentoring for you every step of the way.

8

Become a Dynamic Storyteller

Through the Creative Process and the media you create, you’ll grow your competencies as a story-writer and a story-teller. You’ll learn what makes a good story, and how to share it digitally through just the resources you have in your possession.

9

More Limitations, More Innovation

By learning to work with what you have (a present reality on any film set), you’ll be prepared to continue creating media, even if you don’t have access to professional filmmaking equipment. This experience will serve you well - developing those core competencies most desired by today’s employers.

10

Opportunity to Change the Cultural Narrative

Our world is filled with fear and panic. The times are hard and challenging. We have the great opportunity to combat this fear with intentional creativity that will not only bring life to the creators but bring hope to those that watch these creations. It is our desire to bring hope to our world through this experience.
