Cross Channel Film Lab – Open Sessions on VFX and Stereo 3D at Falmouth University, 23 – 26 March 2013
Save the date! Join the filmmakers whose projects have been selected to take part in the CCFL’s 2013 workshop programme in three days of Open Sessions, from Saturday 23 to Monday 25 March, at Falmouth University’s Tremough campus.
The sessions will be hosted by the Cross Channel Film Lab and are supported by the Creative Skillset Film Skills Fund as part of A Bigger Future 2. They will explore the innovative use of VFX and Stereo 3D in low to medium budget feature films, the focus of the Lab’s remit, and are open to VFX and Stereo 3D specialists, screenwriters, producers, directors, DoPs and those working in other areas of the film industry who would like to learn more about these topics.
Participants may attend the whole three days or select individual sessions of particular interest.
CCFL Open Sessions speakers include Stereo 3D experts Francois Garnier, Josephine Derobe and Fabienne Tsaï; VFX specialist Paddy Eason; script consultants Pippa Best, Mary Davies and Antoine Le Bos; industry representatives Tom Leggett of Film Four, Dan Macrae of Studio Canal, Wendy Bevan-Mogg of Creative England and Charlotte Lee of BBC Films; with more speakers to be announced soon.
Sessions will include:
Case studies of films that make the most of creative limitations, such as Wim Wenders’ Pina
New narrative models presented by the creative restrictions of low cost VFX and Stereo 3D and a new European approach to the medium
Distributors’ and financiers’ perspectives on current and future audiences and markets
Practical examples of an approach to budgeting and scheduling lower budget VFX and Stereo 3D films
Career advice, such as how to transition from animation to VFX
There will also be a chance to learn more about Creative Skillset’s support for the industry.
