The AMPIA Cinematic Documentary Storytelling workshops in Calgary and Edmonton were very successful. AMPIA Board member and Emmy-Award winning filmmaker Michael Jorgensen delivered a jam-packed seminar that engaged over 60 attendees.
“An incredibly informative and inspiring event and we were very glad to be there.”

Thank you to all that registered for the workshops, Michael Jorgensen, and sponsors:
AMPIA presented at the CBC licence renewal hearing at the CRTC on Monday November 26, 2012.
“Thank you for the opportunity to present to you today some additional thoughts on the role we would like to see the CBC play in Alberta. We are pleased to tell you that over the years we have had a very positive relationship with the CBC in our province.
The regional office was always part of our television community and ensured that local independent production thrived alongside in-house production.
In fact, our local CBC stations in both Edmonton and Calgary were places where many of our producers, directors, writers and actors began their careers. There was a time many documentaries, culture and arts programs, even dramas, about Alberta were produced and broadcast in our province.”
Do you have a good idea for a documentary and do not know what the story is or where to start? Emmy® award winning filmmaker Michael Jorgensen takes you through a step-by-step practical process from how to identify and focus your film to deciding where to put the camera. Regardless if you’re a producer, writer, editor, DOP or researcher, this session will provide you with the critical tools for making good stories great.
