We believe that when we make the conscious effort to use creative expression to engage in social discourse we can affect deep in lasting change in our communities.   Here we initiate conversations with our local and national community on a diverse number of topics from media literacy to animal rights, internet safety to equality. Our projects and programs have a common thread; they go beyond entertainment into something deeper.

WHAT WE DO

We work with artistsWe provide production support for artist initiated AFSC projects.

We work with agencies-We provide production support to nonprofits for media projects that communicate their mission.

We work with educatorsWe provide media literacy training to formal and informal educators.

We work with our communityWe offer a variety of education and outreach classes to develop the next generation of industry social change advocates.

The mission of Education and Outreach is to increase media literacy within the variety of communities we as a film company interface both empowering current independent filmmakers and fostering the current and next generation of cinema patron.

FOR EDUCATORS

Infinite Spectrum offers Media Literacy training programs for formal and informal educators via Pop Goes the Classroom. The initiative began in October 2010 and continues to meet the needs of educators across the country.

In 2009, Infinite Spectrum Productions partnered with the Paradise Valley Unified School District to provide afterschool enrichment classes to middle school students at two middle schools.

FOR FILMMAKERS

I Gotta Do What?!!!! launched in 2010 in response to the need to educate independent filmmakers on the realities of film distribution. Workshops are presented at festivals and conventions. The book based on the lecture series is now available for Kindle on Amazon.

In 2008, Infinite Spectrum Productions launched Project: Point of View.The intent was to explore how creativity and artistic vision evolve from a single inspiration. The framework is simple: one story line, multiple stories. We provided a single script. Directors were permitted to make script changes that they felt would enhance the story but they were required to retain the characters and the basic plot line.

The first was Project: The Cleaner. Filmmakers from Arizona, Hawaii and Ireland participated in the project. Each filmmaker came with his own cultural perspective, professional experience and budget.  The results were both insightful and inspiring.

OUR WORK WITH ARTISTS

ALEX ARNDT – MY INNOCENCE BEGINS TODAY

AMBER STEELE – THE FAYTHE PROJECT

In 2009, Infinite Spectrum began work with self published author, Amber Steele, to take her tale of teen dating violence beyond the page. The result is The Faythe Project: A Teen Dating Violence Initiative. Working with the nonprofit incubator, Serendipity Educational Resources, they facilitated a relationship first with an artists’ service organization, Fractured Atlas, to allow us to create a charitable project while in the development stage. In 2011, as the project moves into production it has found a home with Arizona based nonprofit Kaity’s Way. Upon completion, The Faythe Project will provide a fully integrated middle school curriculum designed to help young people understand how to build healthy relationships and how to identify unhealthy ones. We’d like to give a special thanks to Understanding Faith publisher Kas Winters at Winmark Communications for bringing Amber’s book to our attention.
