    The idea that you’ll never make any money from your screen practice (and be a ‘starving artist’) is pervasive, and lots of filmmakers struggle with money and self-employment. This isn’t always just due to lack of funds, however – sometimes you just need someone to explain the basics of money in a way that’s fun, practical, and transparent.  

    Money is NOT a Dirty Word covers the fundamentals of financial literacy specifically for creatives, and answers some of the most compelling financial questions you might have. It also takes a tour through tax and record keeping, ways to make money, and stops briefly in the lands of “Should I work for free?” and “What Should I Charge?”.

    Information about the other workshops in the series

    Money is NOT a Dirty Word - June 29 & 30 

    The idea that you’ll never make any money from your screen practice (and be a ‘starving artist’) is pervasive, and lots of filmmakers struggle with money and self-employment. This isn’t always just due to lack of funds, however – sometimes you just need someone to explain the basics of money in a way that’s fun, practical, and transparent.  

    Money is NOT a Dirty Word covers the fundamentals of financial literacy specifically for creatives, and answers some of the most compelling financial questions you might have. It also takes a tour through tax and record keeping, ways to make money, and stops briefly in the lands of “Should I work for free?” and “What Should I Charge?”. A must for anyone working in the screen industry.

    The Business of Marketing - July 27 & 28 

    Marketing is one of the most despised and least understood aspects of running a screen business or being a freelancer in the creative industries.  This fun and practical workshop explores the mystery behind the marketing magic: devising strategy, making measurements and meeting goals. We’ll also talk about websites, debunk your understanding of social media, help you recover from LinkedInPhobia, and debunk the myths of luck and word-of-mouth.

    iGen Cinema - Babe

    A young pig fights convention to become a sheep dog - or, rather, sheep pig - in this charming Australian family film, which became an unexpected international success due to superior special effects and an intelligent script. The title refers to the name bestowed on a piglet soon after his separation from his family, when he finds himself on a strange farm. Confused and sad, Babe is adopted by a friendly dog and slowly adjusts to his new home. Discovering that the fate of most pigs is the dinner table, Babe devotes himself to becoming a useful member of the farm by trying to learn how to herd sheep, despite the scepticism of the other animals and the kindly but conventional Farmer Hoggett (James Cromwell). 

    Despite its unlikely premise and low profile, Babe's inspirational story was embraced by audiences and critics.

    iGen Cinema - Peter Rabbit

    Peter Rabbit, the mischievous and adventurous hero who has captivated generations of readers, now takes on the starring role of his own cute, contemporary comedy with attitude. In the film, Peter's feud with Mr. McGregor (Domhnall Gleeson) escalates to greater heights than ever before as they rival for the affections of the warm-hearted animal lover who lives next door (Rose Byrne).  James Corden, with playful spirit and wild charm, voices the character of Peter, alongside Margot Robbie, Elizabeth Debicki and Daisy Ridley voicing the roles of the triplets, Flopsy, Mopsy and Cotton-Tail.

    An Australian- American production, this film is rated PG (as it contains mild themes and violence).

    Wide Angle Cinema - Charlie's Country

     

    Join us for a Q&A with director Rolf de Heer following a free screening of his acclaimed feature film Charlie’s Country. Rolf has directed (and mostly also written and produced) fourteen feature films of almost as many different genres, starting with Tail of a Tiger in 1984.  His films, generally low budget, have received substantial international recognition.  Charlie's Country won Best Actor Award in Un Certain Regard at Cannes in 2014 and a slew of other international and Australian awards.

    Written by Rolf de Heer and David Gulpilil as a collaborative project, Charlie’s Country stars Gulpilil as blackfella Charlie, who is getting older, and is out of sorts. Gulpilil appears in every scene in a film that starts on a light note when Charlie helps police capture two drug dealers.  But the government’s Northern Territory intervention is making life more difficult on his remote community, what with the proper policing of whitefella laws that don’t generally make much sense, and Charlie’s kin seeming more interested in going along with things than doing anything about it.  So Charlie takes off, to live the old way, but in doing so sets off a chain of events in his life that has him return to his community chastened, and somewhat the wiser.

    A look at one year in the life of four babies from around the world, from Mongolia to Namibia to San Francisco to Tokyo.

    Re-defining the nonfiction art form, Babies joyfully captures on film the earliest stages of the journey of humanity that are at once unique and universal to us all.

    Chronicling the day-to-day lives of four babies in four far-flung locations around the world -- Mongolia, Namibia, Japan, and California - the film savors the wonders of the first year of life.  Using very little dialogue and stunning digital photography captured at baby-POV level, the film celebrates universal milestones - nursing, eating, crawling, walking - and presents stark cultural differences without judgment.

    An Introduction to Distribution with Molly Reynolds

    Reaching audiences is often harder than creating the work itself. There are both formal and informal channels for getting the work to ‘marketplace’. Government agency funding and financial support is usually dependent on a project having a clear ‘pathway to audience’, with either a sales agent, distributor or broadcaster committed. Informal channels generally involve self-distribution models which can, on occasion, unlock high traffic numbers if nothing else. Usually though, the distribution avenues are particular to the nature of the work itself. On November 6that 7.30, Screen practitioner, Molly Reynolds, will give a concise overview of ways to navigate through the distribution maze.

    • What are the major short term, medium and long term opportunities for the sector?

    If you're unable to attend in person please RSVP to register for live stream by providing your email contact to info@wideangle.org.au

    Expedition Filming - Content vs. Technical Perfection

    ACS Tasmania and Wide Angle Tasmania are excited to have adventure camerawoman Frederique Olivier for an event relating her shooting experiences from a traverse across Greenland, filmed for a recently aired National Geographic Feature-Documentary on Jade Hameister.

    Frederique will contrast and compare this shoot with another recent project - a ‘run and gun’ educational documentary shot in Vanuatu about traditional fishing customs.

    Filming self-supported Expeditions necessitates lightweight equipment, dealing with stringent power, weight and time limitations.

    Frederique has an amazing ability to capture stunning and vitally important documentary sequences, while dealing with these constraints on image acquisition, plus handling the never-ending media management and location logistics etc.

    Frederique will show clips she captured on these contrasting assignments and discuss the challenges she faced which varied from, getting the best out of the talent, to dealing with extreme weather elements, including glacial ice and cold, to major nautical storms to the oppressive humidity of the wet tropics.

    An exciting night for all, not to be missed!

    6.30pm for 7pm start!

    Nibbles will be provided and the bar will be open for drinks!

    This event is free to all - Please RSVP.

    Documentary Masterclass with Tom Zubrycki

    A unique opportunity for filmmakers to get up-close and personal with AACTA, ADG, and Stanley Hawes Award winner Tom Zubrycki, one of Australia's most celebrated documentary filmmakers who for the last 35 years has mapped Australia's changing social and political landscape.

    TomVietnam.pngWhat you will learn

    Combining screenings and discussions Tom will explore both the creative and business aspects of documentary filmmaking in Australia, and give insights into how he has developed his voice, style and survival techniques.

    The focus of this masterclass will be on observational documentary and the discipline, craft, intelligence and intuition this challenging documentary style requires. The following topics will be covered:

    • Picking a subject and selecting characters to follow. 
    • Anticipating the story arc.
    • Choosing the right camera & microphone
    • Coverage and single camera shooting.
    • ‘Fly-on-the wall’ versus ‘engaged observation’ (bringing a personal perspective to the project)
    • Timing the shoot, crafting a longitudinal story.
    • Short form (less than 30 mins) versus long form (feature).
    • Forming and developing relationships with characters over time. How close do you go?  Ethical issues.
    • Preparing for the edit.
    • Marketing and distribution

    Tom will show excerpts from The Diplomat, Molly & Mobarak, and The Hungry Tide – all films made in this style.

    Following the master-class will be a presentation of Tom’s new documentary HOPE ROAD, which screened this year at Sydney and Melbourne film festivals.  More info and tickets here.

    Screen Access

    Making a film can be tough - but you're wasting your time if you don't have agreements in place with your cast, crew and location owners.  With the support of a 26TEN grant, Wide Angle Tasmania has created a suite of contracts for use on your low and no-budget film projects:

    • Cast Agreement - volunteer
    • Cast Agreement - contractor
    • Crew Agreement - volunteer
    • Crew Agreement - contractor
    • Location Agreement

    Wide Angle Tasmania advocates for policy that supports our screen sector, and in the absence of effective state legislation, WAT has created a voluntary code of conduct for Working with Children in the Screen Industry.  

    'Screen Access' is a collection of production documents for independent filmmakers.  In addition to the template agreements you'll find letters, medical information sheets, summary working conditions and tip sheets to provide to new cast or crew members.

    Wide Angle is committed to increasing the diversity of screen practitioners, and an important feature of 'Screen Access' is that the documents have been designed to be easily read and understood by filmmakers - and those you negotiate with.  Media lawyer Shaun Miller has been instrumental in reviewing the agreements to provide filmmakers with peace of mind.

    WAT members are invited to the launch of 'Screen Access' where Executive Director Abi Binning will demonstrate how filmmakers can most effectively use the documents for their projects.  The session will cover:

    • assignment of rights
    • working with volunteer and contractors
    • basic insurances
    • how to use the agreements
    • why use a code of conduct when working with children

     

     

    This project was supported by a 26TEN grant

    The Mid Point Reversal - Screenwriting masterclass

    Off-Blue_Man_in_Leather_Jacket_Birthday_Ideas_for_Boyfriend_Facebook_Event_Cover.jpg

    No part of screenwriting theory is at the same time more critical and misunderstood than the story's Mid Point Reversal (MPR). Many gurus leave it untouched, and those who cover it, only touch the surface. Blake Snyder and Chris Vogler got it plain wrong.

    This one-day seminar and workshop will teach you the differences between a Point of No Return, and the Mid Point Reversal.

    Karel Segers will debunk a few screenwriting myths, and give you a clear and comprehensive look at the story pivot. Once you have found your MPR, you have cracked your story.

     In a fascinating one-day whirlwind, Karel will introduce you to the following:

    • false victories, false defeats, and false writing advice
    • how the MPR changes character archetypes
    • the impact of the MPR on your character's goals and actions
    • the geography of the MPR
    • why motion is critical after your MPR
    • how the MPR relates to theme
    • The MPR and The 2-Act Structure
    • The MPR in TV Series drama

    The MPR will be studied in films such as AVATAR, ONE FLEW OVER THE CUCKOO'S NEST, THE UNTOUCHABLES, THE QUEEN, ARRIVAL, and TV shows such as THE WIRE, BREAKING BAD and FUTURAMA.

    If you are a screenwriter, director, producer or editor, this one-day training will help you understand the central point of every story arc. It will give you the tools to improve flawed stories, and identify potential issues from early development.

    ABOUT KAREL SEGERS

    Karel Segers wrote his first produced screenplay at age 17. Today he is a story consultant, writer and producer, with experience in film rights acquisition, development and production. Karel is also a certified teacher whose lectures have inspired students in Australia, Europe, Asia and the Middle East. His clients include award-winning filmmakers, of which three Oscar-nominees. Karel is the founder of The Story Department and Logline It, and ranks among the world's most influential people for screenwriting on social media.

    In this one-day seminar and workshop, you will learn where the format comes from, who watches it and what the audience expects. Through a diversity of examples, you will learn what sort of web series are out there, which types have survived, and what the future is likely to look like.

    We will teach you tools and techniques to help you write and produce your own show. Finally, you’ll learn how a web series can be financed and even make some money.
