frame:work mission

frame:work is a community organization for creative video professionals working in live events, installations and virtual production.

our mission

frame:work seeks to foster communication between the artists, producers and engineers who build visuals for entertainment.  Our platform serves to empower the creative video community through inspiration, education and professional development, and to nurture the professionals of tomorrow.

frame:work vision

Creative video dominates live entertainment design as well as film production backgrounds.  Our community works in art installations, marketing activations and architectural facades.  Creative video production has left the physical limitations of a screen and moved into the virtual.

The skills and roles required to be successful in such a variety of work environments are diverse, change rapidly, and are regularly confounding to our clients. Challenging work combined with an often challenged work environment leads to stress, mental and physical exhaustion, and budget strains.  Yet even under these pressures, we create incredible art and advance our technology forward.

frame:work seeks to support the creative video community by creating opportunities to share our experiences and learn from each other. With such diversity across practice, and so many opportunities to innovate, we evolve rapidly through open sharing. 

frame:work exists to foster community evolution through leadership building, new talent development, stronger business practices and community partnerships.  frame:work’s success is our membership feeling empowered and understood for their contributions.
