Have you always wanted to dip your toe into the world of visual storytelling?  Are you a media artist / hobbyist who has always thought about taking your work to the next level?  Do you have a great idea for a short narrative film or a documentary but are intimidated by the process or the technology it would take to complete it?

If you live in the Ottawa area, SAW Video’s Jumpstart grant maybe a good fit for you. ¬†Established in the 1980s, Jumpstart is SAW Video’s longest-standing production incentive program specifically designed for artists who are new to video as a medium. ¬†In addition to monetary and equipment support, Jumpstart offers a mentorship component aimed at supporting emerging artists through all stages of the production cycle.
