Tom: Are you going to the IMFF this weekend?
Janice: I'm not sure, aren't film festivals usually expensive?
Tom: I have heard that all you have to do is buy the creator a coffee and she will send you an invite to join.
Janice: WOW as easy as that! Where can I find out more Tom?
Tom: Just by following this link http://sbp.populr.me/programming-mobile-film-festival-2021sandiego
Thanks Tom and Janice for that simple but intriguing story, but seriously if your not going; then you should. Because not only will you meet some amazing people, see some amazing films and learn some amazing techniques, you will also be helping this organisation to grow.
Thank you all, you are our Mobile filmmaking family.
Interested in continuing to work in the Experimental Film Genre.
Any advice on approaching this goal?
It's gonna be a great weekend!
Experimental is a great place to be because you can do anything. But for the audience to understand it there needs to be some form of structure and most importantly story. That doesn't mean words or narrative it can be silent bar picture and sound, yet it needs to start in one place and end in another. Just so you're audience feel like they have gone on a journey. I saw a brilliant experimental film where the character was a bubble in a pint of beer. By placing the mobile in a waterproof bag they were able to film inside a glass of beer. And none of the narrative could be heard because it all sounded like it does underwater.
As far as structure is concerned imagine a film as a coffee mug. The mug can hold coffee, water, nuts, pennies, trail mix, pens, just about anything you want to put into it.
The story is always different, but the mug, always stays the same. Beginning middle end.
Hope this is helpful for you.
I would like to intern for a film company that encourages Experimental work.
Any ideas on where or who to send request to for an internship?
How do I find film companies that support experimental work?
Thanks for the advice!
At the center of everything we experience is a story. Stories are always evolving. The only beginning and end to a story is the one that is told or the one we perceive.
