    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.

    Wildness - Silver Screen

    October Silver Screen is Wildness: Olegas Truchanas and Peter Dombrovskis were perhaps Australia's greatest wilderness photographers. Their work became synonymous with campaigns to protect Tasmania's natural heritage. They shared many things, including a bond that was more like that of father and son. Both came from Baltic Europe and migrated to Tasmania, where their passion for nature became a crusade to save an environment under threat. Both died in the wilderness, doing what they loved, and left a legacy in extraordinary images. Their philosophy was simple and remarkably effective - if people could see the beauty of Australia's wild places then they might be moved to save them.

    Created in 2003

    Directed by Scott Millwood

    Run Time: 55 mins

    Silver Screen is a curated program of iconic and important Australian films screening every month in the comfortable theatre at 6 Washington Street in South Hobart. With support from the City of Hobart, Wide Angle Tasmania presents these films for free to those aged 50 and over.

    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.

    Charlie's Country - Silver Screen

    On July 25 Silver Screen will feature Charlie’s Country.  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.  Source: https://www.creativespirits.info/resources/movies/charlies-country#ixzz5J7UqWgF9

    Silver_Screen_The_First_Fagin-2.png

    Silver Screen is a curated program of iconic and important Australian films screening every month in the comfortable theatre at 6 Washington Street in South Hobart. With support from the City of Hobart, Wide Angle Tasmania presents these films for free to those aged 50 and over.

    It’s a great opportunity for audiences to access Australian film, meet other film lovers and hear from the actors, directors and producers at a post film Q&A. 

    On June 27 we will be screening The First Fagin:

    When Charles Dickens created the character of Fagin in his novel, Oliver Twist, he gave birth to one of the most infamous rogues in English literature. Few people know that Dickens' portrait of Fagin drew inspiration from the life of the Jewish receiver and fencer of stolen goods, Ikey Solomon. Much has been written about Ikey's exploits: his amazing and daring prison escapes have captured people's imaginations through the generations.

    THE FIRST FAGIN recreates Ikey's journey from London's dens of vice, Newgate jail, and the notorious prison "hulks" on the Thames to a daring escape to the new world of America. Ikey then tempted fate by sailing to Tasmania in search of his wife who had been transported as a convict. In Tasmania, Ikey began a long legal battle to defy the authorities of one of Australia's most severe convict settlements.

    Stay for a Q&A with actor Ryk Goddard after the film.

    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.

    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.

    Web Series Writing Masterclass

    the_way_of_tea.jpg 

    For ambitious filmmakers on a modest budget, the webseries is the format to consider. Not only is it affordable and manageable for newbies, it allows you to build a loyal audience, and communicate with that audience directly.

    The webseries allows you to break into the industry without breaking the bank.

    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.

    This one-day training seminar is for you if:

    • you are a screenwriter willing to self-produce
    • you want to have direct access to your audience
    • you like to keep control of your creative work
    • comedy is your preferred genre
    • you struggle to break into television
    • you are a filmmaker on a low budget
    • you want to learn the ropes without going broke

    Tutor Bio - Catherine Pettman
    Catherine Pettman is a creative producer working across documentary, drama and live events. After training as an actor at the Victorian College of the Arts, Catherine began her career in front of the camera but was lured to the other side as opportunity beckoned. She took on a variety of production roles in everything from TVCs to music videos, from short films to educational videos, until making the leap to full-time producing in 2009. Catherine's credits during her time as Head of Production at Roar Film from 2012 to 2014 include: producing Songlines of the Moonbird for Aboriginal Educational Services, an animation with accompanying epub; production managing a feature documentary-drama The First Fagin; and co-producing the groundbreaking Vandemonian Lags, a musical with an all-star cast led by Tim Rogers which was digitally simulcast and released in feature film format.

    Stranger With My Face International Film Festival - May 4 to May 7

    Tasmania’s Stranger With My Face International Film Festival will return for its fifth edition from May 4-7 2017.

    “Events like this are needed more than ever, with women’s rights under threat around the world,” says Festival Director Briony Kidd. “Women are angry, and they have a lot to say. Genre filmmaking is enriched by that sense of urgency and energy and we’re seeing more and more extraordinary films directed by women emerging from the indie scene. But they’re often not as visible as they deserve to be, and that’s where Stranger With My Face comes in. Our mission is to celebrate these films and bring them to a broader audience.”

    Stranger With My Face has become a key platforms for genre film in Australia, and it is proudly connected to the larger women-in-horror movement worldwide.
