The 2011 Edition of Source Oregon

The Oregon Media Production Association is holding a party tomorrow afternoon to celebrate the launch of 2011′s print edition of Source, the Oregon film, TV, commercial and new media production industry’s official directory of professional media production resources. 

The book, which is distributed locally, nationally and internationally to producers and filmmakers each year in partnership with the Governor’s Office of Film and Television, contains over 1300 listings of production personnel and media-related companies throughout Oregon.’s impact on Oregon’s film and TV industry is huge,” says OMPA executive director Tom McFadden.  “Think of Oregon’s largely freelance industry like a company with 1300 employees - is the ‘company roster’ for that business.  That makes it easier to get work done in Oregon, and facilitates connections within the local industry.  Whether you’re an out-of-state producer looking to ‘crew up’ for a big project, or a local producer seeking to fill a key position, the directory collects the qualified people, vendors and other resources along with their current contact info.”

McFadden also notes that several states have similar directories, but few are as strongly “vetted” as  “We make sure that everyone in the directory is qualified to do the job they’re listed under.  Everyone who lists in has professional experience and reference.  We even ask people who use the book to let us know if they’re not satisfied with the personnel they’ve hired.”

OMPA members (with the exception of “Add-on” and Student members) receive a free copy of the Source directory, and the book is available to anyone in the industry for a fee of $35.00.  If you’re not able to visit the OMPA offices at 901 SE Oak St. Suite #104 in Portland tomorrow for the official release party, a copy of the directory can be requested by calling the OMPA office at (503) 228-8822 or through
