A project is in development which could mean high profile work for local filmmakers.
In its festive Merry Xmas Newsletter, Creative Cultures Scotland highlights the project as one for 2012.
The idea is that filmmakers will make short films of creative practitioners from the North East of Scotland, and those films will be shown before the main movie feature at the Belmont cinema in Aberdeen.
That’s pretty high profile to me! The films will also be made available online for sharing.
A call has gone out for creative practitioners who would like to be featured. That means people like artists, dancers etc.
Creative practitioners should contact the Creative Cultures Scotland office for more details. Here’s the website: http://www.creativeculturescotland.co.uk/home.asp
No guidance has yet been issued for filmmakers. So, it’s sit tight for the moment.
The key organisations behind the project are Creative Cultures Scotland, Belmont Cinema, the Film Office and Aberdeen College.
They may well ask for a showreel from filmmakers to show what you’re capable of, so that’s something you could do over the Xmas holidays!
The CCS office is very friendly. If you don’t know it, it’s staffed by Phil Thompson, and has offices at Cotton Street, Aberdeen. Check out the CCS blog here: http://creativeculturescotland.wordpress.com/)
