Thanks to the hard work of my UWS Colleague, John Quinn, we are screening some of our students’ work at the Celluloid Wings film festival
The UWS showcase takes place on Monday the 2nd of September at 6:45 pm at The Gaiety Theatre Carrick St. Ayr, South Ayrshire, KA7 1NU
TEL – 01292 288235
After the student showcase John Marzano is presenting his showreel then conducting a Q&A session. He has shot aerial footage for the Harry Potter films, Skyfall, World War Z, Thor The Dark World and other big movies, so he’s quite an intersting filmmaker.
Thanks also to Ashley Dick, who is an allumni of UWS Creative and one of the organisers of the festival, and who has informed me that UWS students can attend this event for free.
If you want to go all you need to do show up with your student card.
Should be an interesting night.
I am indebted to Linda Campbell for important news of a new Initiative from Write Camera Action in Glasgow. For more information email Linda Campbell at [email protected]
A lot of Scottish Film makers have embraced the ethos of WriteCameraAction and gone on to form collaborations and get those ideas which were originally workshopped at WCA actually produced – Well Done! With the support of their host venue the CCA in Glasgow, Linda Campbell is now organising an event to showcase films that have been workshopped or have collaborated with WCA prior to their production. At this early stage what she is looking for is an indication of how many of these films are out there and a little of their history.
Please check requirements below and if relevant contact Linda at [email protected] about your project with subject heading ‘WCA Indie Initiative’
The script of the work produced must have been workshopped either in whole or in part at WriteCameraAction in a monthly WCA or an advanced WCA workshop booked by Linda, AND/OR have some collaboration directly with WCA that contributed to the work being produced. It must be a no-low budget production e.g. not funded by a public body (no Student Graduation films) That’s it!!!
The rest is detail: You should say what the Title of work is, genre, duration, brief synopsis, and brief history of ‘idea to fruition’ e.g. Did you utilise the WCA mailshot, did you cast from participants cast during your workshop or seen at another performance at WCA etc. or not. Who were your crew and did you meet them through networking via WCA or not. Has it been shown anywhere else e.g. Film Festivals, GMAC, Youtube… That’s it. More than one entry is not only allowed, it’s applauded! No limit to the number of films you enter as long as they fulfill the criteria. If you have a work in progress send Linda the details if it’s likely to be completed in the next few months. Please note: Do NOT send any films at this stage. Linda expects to see varying standards of production values so don’t let that put you off – Write Camera Action is about supporting and developing Home-Grown Produce!!
If in doubt of eligibility contact Linda for clarification. Enquiries on this event from relevant writer/filmmakers only. Once the Event is fully realised and dates and ticket prices fixed, she will send out an email to everyone. You know she will :)))
