Have you started your Sound First Film Challenge yet?

February 3, 2011

I have!  Have a listen to some of the sound clips and see what inspires you:

Sound First Film Challenge

One of the key elements of any good movie is its sound design and mix. It is an element that often if not always comes as a response to images that the filmmaker shot and audio they recorded on location. This quarter for our film challenge we provide filmmakers with some pre-recorded and mixed sound asking them to create images to accompany. Are you up for the challenge?

Films must  be submitted on 35mm, 16mm, BETA SP, DVCAM, or DVD. All submitted works   will be screened.

Submissions are due February 17; screenings take place  on February 24.

Call for entries reminder – Concert Film Challenge & Local Sightings

April 13, 2010

Film ChallengeSubmit Your Work to the Concert Film Challenge

Screening is May 18 at 8pm
Deadline is May 4

Seattle is a haven for live music, and Northwest Film Forum is the home for many concert films that pass through our city. This quarter alone we screened films featuring Leonard Cohen’s performance at the Isle of Wight, the White Stripes tour through Canada, and a Bill Withers doc that includes plenty of concert footage.

To honor our musical heritage, this quarter we ask local filmmakers to turn their eyes on the music scene and make concert films no longer than 5 minutes for the Concert Film Challenge. Since we expect the response for the challenge to surpass previous challenges, we reserve the right to curate this program, and possibly host multiple screening dates and times.

The project is open to all levels of skills and experience. Send submissions to: Northwest Film Forum, c/o Adam Sekuler, 1515 12th Ave, Seattle, WA 98122. For more information email Adam Sekuler at adams@nwfilmforum.org. Formats: 35mm, 16mm, super-8, digiBETA, BETA SP, DVCAM, and DVD. Please Include title, filmmaker’s name and contact info with submission.
