Adventures in Recycling
Date posted: 21.03.2007
Ever wanted to make a film about recycling? A competition for emerging film-makers, or anyone with a passion for film-making, to make a totally unique 3-minute film has just been launched by Studio Artois, Channel 4, and the BRITDOC festival.
They are looking for fresh perspectives on recycling in all its forms: what can be recycled, the people involved and how the process works. Films can be character-led, based on the science or celebrating the power and beauty of recycling.
Your film could look at the most common substances to be recycled like glass or paper, or the transformation of cans into cars and computers. Or you could explain why recycling matters and what the future of recycling will hold.
Four completely different short films are sought. Ideas which mix documentary with animation, with music video, with poetry, photography or illustration are welcomed.
The four winners will be given the resources and professional assistance to make their film during May and June.
The films will be broadcast as 3 Minute Wonders on Channel 4 in July 2007. They will also be shown on the Studio Artois website and at the BRITDOC festival (25 – 27 July).
Apply online with your idea before 14 April 2007.
