1 – FILM CREATION PROJECT
Creative people wanted for C’est Right Short’s film crews!
FICFA and Festival Inspire want you – nay – we need you. The third edition of C’est Right Short, Moncton’s bilingual short film happening, is coming up and we’re planning a new and unique film creation project, the goal of which is to bring together both experienced filmmakers and crews as well as beginners; people with little to no experience in filmmaking but lots of energy and a willingness to learn.
Our plan is to form four teams headed by young professional filmmakers. Both beginners and experienced filmmakers will make up the rest of the teams, with beginners shadowing each pro (director, cameraperson, editor, etc.).
It all starts the weekend of June 24-25 when C’est Right Short will be holding a two-day guerrilla filmmaking workshop. Groups will be divided into two for training in both English and French, culminating with plenaries where all four film crews will get to pick their film genres and have a Q&A session with the directors.
Following this first exciting weekend, teams will have three weeks to create their films. Festival Inspire, which will be held July 10-16, is to serve, at least in part, as a backdrop for the short films, as dictated by various instructions (or challenges), which will be drawn from a hat at the end of the first day of the workshop.
C’est Right Short is also about bilingualism, with films being either bilingual or with an equal balance of French and English amongst the four shorts. We ask that all productions be subtitled so everyone can enjoy them.
Participants must be 18 and over.
The completed films will premiere at a public screening on Thursday, July 20th. Times and locations will be announced soon. If you’re interested in being part of an awesome film crew, learning new creative skills and meeting new people, write to Dominique at email@example.com before June 21st and let us know about your spoken language(s), your skill level and experience (if any). Don’t worry, as stated, we’re looking for both pros and beginners, so don’t hesitate to throw your hat into the ring!
