Designed to help teach filmmaking skills to youth in Portland and Gresham. While with Get Reel, Jen produced, mentored and worked on set for dozens of productions. Taylor and Tim also worked on behalf of Get Reel, volunteering time to help produce a handful of pieces.
MetroEast Community Media partnered with POWFest to host POWGirls 2015. 14 girls, aged 15-18 wrote, filmed and edited two films in one weekend. The films screened at POWFest at The Hollywood Theater.

Working with a handful of youth through the Get Reel program, Jen created the basis for “The World I Want to Live In”, which was produced in part by Taylor and Tim. The piece, written and produced by a team of youth filmmakers guided by mentors, was intended as commentary on the crisis of youth incarceration. The project was filmed at Wapato Correctional Facility, with Taylor and Tim on set performing various roles. “The World I Want to Live In” was accepted by the 2016 White House Student Film Festival, as part of the South by South Lawn event, hosted by the Obama Administration. The piece received an Honorary mention.
