Shorts on NITV with Wide Angle Tasmania

MAKE A SHORT FILM TO SCREEN NATIONALLY ON NITV!


APPLICATIONS CLOSE 4PM WED 12 JUNE

Wide Angle Tasmania is proud to present a new production initiative for indigenous Tasmanian filmmakers. During a series of free workshops and one-on-one mentoring from industry professional filmmakers, you will learn a wide range of filmmaking skills including writing, directing, camera, lighting, sound and editing.  You’ll use these skills to make your own short film (on one of the themes below) funded by the Regional, Remote and Emerging Initiative.

Your film will be broadcast around Australia later this year on National Indigenous Television (NITV), giving you your first screen credit and an introduction to the screen industry. You’ll also own the film that you make.
To be eligible, you must be an emerging filmmaker who is a resident Tasmanian, identify as an Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander and be available to study between July and October 2013.

The training course starts July 7 and ends 30th September 2013 and includes weekend workshops in Hobart. Applicants from regional areas are encouraged to apply.

The Themes are:

SURVIVING:  Stories about belonging, Profiles of members of your community.
DESPERATE MEASURES:  Historical Stories from our people using photos.
OUR FOOTPRINTStories from our Elders on country.
