Don’t know what to do with all the DV-tapes that fill your shelves at home?
Tired of not having the time to edit the bunch of images you took in the last few years?
Love making movies, editing, and sharing your experience?
Then recycle it and take part in Rush Up : the European Rusharing Project which will be organized by NISI MASA FRANCE during the next tree months.
You send us, with your application form, before the 20th of July 2008, an original and personal 60-minute DV-tape of rushes of any kind: tourism, family, friends, travel, raw material from one of your movies or an unfinished project… whatever you want as long as the images have not been edited.
You receive in exchange a 60-minute DV-tape of rushes from another participant, from a different country, before the 1st of August 2008.
Then, you have 1 month to edit a movie with that tape (duration: 5 to 10 minutes). You can use any “post-production tools" you wish: special effects, original sounds and music, subtitles, text and so on - but you don’t have the right to shoot additional images. Please avoid the usual “musical clip” … Then you send your movie on a master DV-tape to NISI MASA FRANCE before the 1st of September 2008.
On the 11th of September 2008, NISI MASA FRANCE will organize a special edition of its “Cinepudding” screenings in Paris. 10 movies (for 10 participants) will be shown to the Parisian public in an alternative venue called “Les Voûtes” (Paris XIII).
The 10 participants will be invited in Paris for 4 days, from the 11th to the 14th of September 2008 (70% of travel expenses reimbursed). They will present their movies during the screening and participate to meetings and workshops with professional editors, experimental filmmakers and other artistic associations on the topic of found footage movies, film restoration, and collective filmmaking.
How to apply?
Please print, complete and sign the Application Form attached in .doc and send it with your tape before the 20th of July 2008 deadline, at the postal address written at the end of the Application Form.
Send also as soon as possible, the application form at firstname.lastname@example.org
We will select the participants depending on their experience in editing and their motivation. We will also take into account their countries and the kind of rushes they send, in order to have as much diversity as possible.
The selection result will be communicated by email before the 1st of August 2008.
SEE YOU SOON !
