Second year of AVA film project looking for filmmakers, editors and musicians
Huge success” describes last’s year’s Cap-ture: A Community Filmmaking Project—and sponsor AVA fully expects this year’s version to be even bigger. More than 80 filmmakers submitted videos in 2013 and many more are expected this year. AVA’s announced it’s seeking editors and musicians for the 2014 Capture, which will kickoff Friday, Sept. 19 at the Walker Pavilion in Coolidge Park.
What happens in the unique Capture process is that community filmmakers, editors and musicians have 48 hours to create short films based on a specific theme.
Three “Capture Creative Teams” will produce three short films. These will be compiled from clips of the submitted videos, along with original musical scores provided by the paired music team, for screening at the Capture Premiere event on Sunday, Sept. 21 at 5:30 p.m. (venue TBA).
On that night, there will also be live performances from each of the three collaborating bands that composed music for the films.
Capture’s success is being explored this week at the National Alliance for Media Arts and Culture in Philadelphia, attended by AVA Executive Director Anne Willson.
“Part of AVA’s mission with Capture is to expand the program under AVA’s banner. This a great start towards that process,” said Zach Cooper, AVA’s director of media and design.
So editors and musicians, now’s the time to hop on board a project barreling into Chattanooga’s arts future. The deadline to submit for consideration is 5 p.m. Friday, Aug. 29.
Editor(s) will receive a collection of footage containing 30-second video clips from each filmmaker encompassing a wide range of imagery, lighting, movement, focus, etc. Footage is to be turned over to the editor by 3 p.m., Saturday, Sept. 20.
Clips will be edited into a cohesive three-to-five minute narrative that responds to 1) the place in which the film is made, 2) the pre-determined theme, and 3) original musical score. Completed film is due at 10 a.m., Sunday September 21.
Musicians & Bands:
Chattanooga area musician(s) or bands to compose and record a digitally formatted original musical score three-to-five minutes in length. Score will be given to editor(s) developing a collectively sourced three-to-five minute film.
Score should be drawn from and reflect local Chattanooga culture and respond to the predetermined theme. Professional studio space will be provided. The musician/bands who participate in Capture 2014 will also be required to perform a live set, approximately 20 minuets in length, at the Capture Premiere Event on Sunday, Sept. 21. The first performance will begin at 5:30 p.m.
Both editors and musicians/bands who are chosen to participate in Capture 2014 will be compensated.
