Do you have an interest in making ‘interactive’ films?
Have you ever wanted to revise or expand upon other peoples’ stories?
Would you like to learn how the internet can be used to create narratives?
Multipath film making is a new way of thinking about interacting with films which is similar to those old Choose your own Adventure books, except using online video and it allows people to contribute their own sections of the story.
Films on the Fly, in conjunction with the MRC, are hosting a film making workshop in February to explore this new form of interactive video.
The workshop will be run on the 6-7th, 13-14th, and 20-21st of Feburary 2010, with a film being made each week. After the completion of the workshop a screening of all the content will take place at the Mercury Cinema.
The workshop will also help expand the Linkr community. A group of South Australian based film makers interested in interactive storytelling.
The film making workshops are open to everyone, especially actors, actresses, script writers, directors, editors, cinematographers, musicians, sound engineers, and anyone with an interest in film making.
As the groups are organised on a week by week basis you don’t need to be present for the entire 3 weeks. You are welcome to attend even if you can only make it for a day or two. If you are already a film maker then feel free to bring your own equipment, otherwise we suggest you become an MRC member to get free access to their equipment hire and the editing factilities.
