Production Access Programs

EMMEDIA annually supports a minimum of six artists through its
assistance programs. The number of recipients in each category is not
fixed, allowing EMMEDIA to fill the positions based on the types of
submissions we receive. We support the innovative and challenging
work of a variety of artists working in various genres. Our support
to media artists extends beyond those working in video art to
encompass those exploring diverse forms of time-based art including:
installation, documentary, animation, performance, new media, audio,
and web-based projects.

Submissions should be forwarded to the attention of the jury of the
program for which you apply. Applications that propose simple event
documentation, or are commercial or discriminatory in nature, will
not be considered.

Questions regarding these programs can be directed to EMMEDIA's
Production Coordinator, Collin Ward MacDonald, production@emmedia.ca

Applications for the Scholarship and Bars n' Tone are due the end of
February each year.

Scholarship Program

This program, offered since 1984, is open to emerging
artists/producers undertaking their first productions in audio, video
or multimedia. Scholarship Recipients receive training in production
and post-production, as well as creative and artistic development,
enabling them to create engaging and sophisticated first productions.
EMMEDIA's Scholarship Coordinator provides training and assistance,
while other participants stand in as crew if needed.

This program runs for three months from June 1 to August 31. A
screening of the finished works from the Scholarship and Bars 'n'
Tone programs is presented at EMMEDIA in the fall. There is no
prerequisite for the Scholarship Program. When developing your
proposal, keep in mind that projects must be completed within the
three-month term, and that you are responsible for equipment outside
of EM's facilities. Applicants must submit a detailed project
description, a CV, an artist statement, and support material.
Successful applicants will receive a free one-year producer
membership, $100 in tape stock, $1,250 in equipment rentals, and
training and workshops to a value of $625.

Applications are due the end of February each year.

Bars n' Tone Program

This program is intended to support artists who have previously
produced work in audio, video or multimedia and wish to continue
their creative and technical development. The focus of the Bars 'n'
Tone Program is on refining and enhancing existing skills in media
production and post- production, culminating in a new finished work.
Potential program participants are asked to submit a project
proposal that includes a current CV, script, storyboard or treatment,
project description, detailed budget and support material. Recipients
are encouraged to solicit the assistance of the Scholarship
participants as support crew whenever possible.

This program runs for three months from June 1 to August 31. A screening of the
finished works from the Scholarship and Bars n' Tone programs is
presented at EMMEDIA in the fall. When developing your proposal, keep
in mind that EMMEDIA will not select projects that require equipment
outside of EM's facilities or more than the three-month term to
complete. Successful applicants will receive a free one-year producer
membership, $200 in tape stock and $1,250 in equipment rentals.
Applications are due the end of February each year.

Finishing Funds/Open Access Incentive

EMMEDIA will support 4 artists' projects by providing in-house
editing and production equipment up to a value of $2000. One can
apply any time and the number of projects supported is subject to
fund (and equipment) availability and acceptance of a proposal by the
Production Committee. To apply, send a proposal for the
project they wish to work on and include a (post-production) budget,
timeline, and relevant support material.
No deadline.

Questions regarding these programs can be directed to EMMEDIA's
Production Coordinator, Collin Ward MacDonald, production@emmedia.ca
