FEATURED STUDENT WORK
We partner with organizations to offer custom photo and video opportunities to those wanting to learn the basics or expand on their existing knowledge. Take a moment to explore some of the amazing work from our students!
Digital Storytelling is the foundation of Story Gorge film education. Using personal narrative, students explore the insights they have gained through their experiences. Students learn to write and deliver voice over and edit together audio and video elements into an engaging short film that is unique to their voice.

In 2018, Story Gorge teamed up with White Salmon Valley Schools and The United States Forest Service to facilitate a media education program for every 7th-grade student attending Henkle Middle School. The students interviewed the Public Affairs Officer, U.S. Forests Service Columbia River Gorge National Scenic Area about the devastating Eagle Creek Fire of 2017. Together with Amy Sacquety, the 7th grade Language Arts teacher, Story Gorge instructors guided the youth through storytelling structure and documentary filmmaking. The result was 21 short documentaries filmed, edited, and produced by over 80 students over three months. Here are a few of our favorites!

ARTS IN EDUCATION OF THE GORGE
Since basing our company in the Columbia River Gorge, we've developed an amazing partnership with Arts in Education of the Gorge, a Hood River-based 501c3 nonprofit. Through their grants and programming, we have been able to take media education to students all over the region and teach them a variety of skills to launch their education into new realms of art and technology.
