Glenn Newland (President)
Glenn is an avid photographer, starting at age thirteen, when he developed his first black and white photo. He studied film and photography at Webster College in Missouri, where he received a bachelor’s degree in media studies. He met his wife, Amy, in a community choir in San Francisco. Amy and Glenn have been singing in community choirs ever since, crisscrossing the country from San Francisco (where their son, Oliver, was born) to Miami to Los Angeles and finally relocating to Eugene in November 2020, where they now sing with the Eugene Concert Choir and Vocal Arts. Professionally, Glenn has worked in a variety of positions in the motion picture industry at companies such as Technicolor and IMAX. Throughout his career he managed small and large staffs on the technical, financial, and post-production side of filmmaking. He has been an active member of multiple volunteer organizations including the Nova Singers in Fort Lauderdale Florida, the Association of Independent Commercial Producers, Film Florida, The Giant Screen Cinema Association, and the National Educational Film & Video Festival in Oakland, CA. Before leaving Southern California, Glenn volunteered with the Burbank Cultural Arts Commission and, most recently has volunteered with Lane County Public Health in support of multiple mass vaccination clinics and the Community Supported Shelters organization. Glenn is passionate about learning about and encouraging new artists and promoting the arts in support of a more unified community.
