“It’s through the mistakes and by taking risks that a filmmaker can find their unique voice”.
A great quote by a man who knows exactly what taking risks and making great films is all about.
Enter award-winning filmmaker, Jason van Genderen, who is in Wollongong next week Friday to host a workshop to empower regional filmmakers with new thinking, tools and disciplines to help you uncover your stories.
In February Wollongong hosted Tropfest at the University of Wollongong and it was great to see so many budding filmmakers turn out to see the finalists for 2012. BUT….Why watch them when it could be your film on the screen?
Jason van Genderen’s homelessness themed film ‘Mankind is No Island’ was made for less than $100 and won a stack of local and international awards. This could be you.
If you think you have what it takes, now is your opportunity!
The theme for Tropfest in 2013 is ‘Balloon’ and on Friday 31 August, a AFTRS workshop, hosted by van Genderen will take place at the University of Wollongong Innovation Campus.
This is the perfect opportunity for you to gain the skills and knowledge you need to join van Genderen in being recognised, world wide, for your contribution to short films. What’s better – the course will offer an insight into how to kick start this career on a minimum budget with no big crews, special effects or stuntmen.
Think you have what it takes? We are giving ONE lucky winner the chance to win a place at next week’s course! Simply head to our Facebook page and tell us in 25 words or less why you deserve this spot.
Enrolment to the course is being offered at a special discount regional rate of just $125 (normally over $165). Fortunately for Wollongong, AFTRS Open regional program is bringing this workshop here to support the development of the local filmmaking industry – and hopefully some more local Tropfest entries!
