We also became a Strategic Partner with LAUNCH, expanded their program to one week long. We hosted "Silent Movies Scored by Live Bands" at Bows and Arrows where we paired three local Indie bands with three iconic silent films and film historian, Cliff Weimar, for an evening of education and entertainment. In Aug 2012, we held the second Annual CIC Fashion Challenge, Collaborating with five local restaurants creating, "Fashion Pairings". The first place winner, Niv Elliott, has gone on to create her own line and show at more fashion events. In Jan 2013, Media Mentoring hosted, one-on-one mentoring of eight filmmakers to achieve attendance to the American Film Market. In Feb 2013, we mentored three high school students through shooting a documentary created around shooting a Feature film in under 72 hours. The students got to live and work with a real Movie crew as they set the world record for Fastest Shot Feature. In Aug 2013, we launched Sacha Laurin, Fashion Challenge Winner and Media Mentee who appeared at the Oscars in 2015 and Paris Fashion Week 2015.
2014-2017, we continued Media Mentoring and The CIC Fashion Challenge. We added Art Salons and ARTsoup to our programs. In July of 2016 we moved into CLARA Midtown and began a series of events including FEMWINISM, the Ode To Earth Festival, and the Summit for Artistic Infrastructure and Safety. We gave back to Schools at SCUSD by mentoring interns, and installing Designing For A Difference. We would like to bring more programs and content to our Studio at CLARA - and with your help, WE CAN!
