Young People of Brandenburg creatively fill up emptiness

Asking young people of Brandenburg a.d. Havel “what would you do, if you had just an empty room, no matter of anyone’s expectations?”, they immediately got creative. Shining eyes, a smile on their face – thinking of possibilities that brought them immediately into joyful action. We enjoyed ourselves being there, at city Brandenburg one more lovely, sunny afternoon, and getting in contact with such nice & authentic people.

IRRE PLATTE

This year, we’re going to celebrate creativity in “Brandenburg an der Havel”, a lovely little city close to Germany’s capitol Berlin – together with the experts from “Deine irre Leere” & Lehnschulzenhofbühne, our partner NGO “Dehnungsfuge”, and with lovely support of the German state’s Fonds Soziokultur.

Together with young talented artists (and we know: everyone has the potentials to be/come one), we are going to fill up an empty house in the industrial part of Brandenburg with films, music, theatre, dance, dreams and… – well, with art.

The poject’s called IRRE PLATTE  (#irreplatte), you can find us on Facebook, Instagram and follow our lovely set up Youtube Channel (please do!).

Looking forward to report more about our work soon…

 

Press article about our lovely Shakespeare work

It was this autumn, when we worked on Shakespeare, in cooperation with the Art Prospects Foundation and together with20 Polish & German film making artists. Now, the premiere took place in Warzawa, and a lovely press article in ‘Platea Magazine’ is giving a honorable feedback to this film work.

“… The official closing of ‘Tender Metropolis Warsaw-Berlin’ project is happening today with the premiere screening of two short films, ‘The Stone Soup’ and ‘October’ (A.K.A. “The Odyssey”), in Warsaw.

The films were shot by 20 Polish and German upcoming filmmakers based on the screenplays selected in a competition […]

The participants were working on the scripts, transforming them in accordance with their visions and ideas, and taking into account the feasibility of production. […]

Sharing’ is the key word that describes this project: [… one] part from the filmmakers and project mentors Roman Przypilak and Agnieszka Gomułka, and the next part belongs to Boris Laaser, Sylvia Schwarz, Konrad Aksinowicz etc.”

As the press article says, next year, we might go for Budapest – so everybody there: get ready for another nice pieces of art. 🙂

Teaching Shakespeare in Warzawa and Berlin

I am glad to work once more with young talented film makers, this time coming from Poland – and we do shakespeare together!

On behalf of the “Art Prospects Foundation” , I will give once more a creative vision work seminar to make story ideas crisp & spicy and turn inner ideas and motives into real (film) stories…

My seminar is titled Without Contrast You’re Dead, inspired by the great designer Paul Rand – but now on my turns, there will have to be contrasts in the story telling: Shakespeare is clash of status, habitus, choices… Therefore, you can turn a story into a shakespeare approach, if you create contrasts that have to come and deal together, solve something – or go for love. 🙂

There will be improvisation exercises, guys, so be ready, be creative, and let’s have fun together!

And the winner is… coming from Banja Luka Republika Srbska

We did it again. The 2nd European Vision Award was announced for the best film clip that is going to win the competition at the ‘international improvisation film slam” (iifs) in Bosnia and Herzegovina.

We designed this workshop (as well as this competition, like the whole price, two years ago) as a creative intervention, trying to envoke entertainment and cutural exchange not only for professional film makers, but for simply everybody who likes to join and be creative.

We teached some quite impressive creative tools in our workshop, in order to focus ideas and free associations. We had fun, guys!

Art beats anger. Celebration of Bosnian and Serbian creativity

Dear Dreamers, dear visionary craft workers, dear operators of time flow, dear intellectual aestheticists, dear creativity acrobats – dear Bosnian & Serbian peaceful artists,


we are glad to invite You to the 1st international improvisation film slam (iifs) of Bosnia and Herzegovina – at Kratkofil Plus International Film Festvial (July 22-26), in Banja Luka‎.

What we know:

Everyone can do potentially a blockbuster, nowadays. Even with a cell phone. You don’t need cinema equipment and trucks full of light stuff and material. The only thing that counts is: what idea is in your head. The power of ideas can change the world. So, let’s work together on Your visions and ideas!

What You need:

> You have to be able to understand and communicate in English. Since we are three guys from Old Europe, who try to help you becoming an international film star. Or something like this. We only speak English.

> You should have worked with film already. We will check one afternoon all together the ‘overall workflow’ and give you some advice – but if you never have done a film before, maybe you will get lost at the competition day. Well, maybe you will win the competition on the other hand, with a horrible out-of-focus picture on screen, but a brillant sound idea. But the chance to get into the audience competition is much higher, if we get some results that we can really show, technically. The films will be filmed and edtited by you and your team, all on your own (check the specs, at the end of this text!).

Furthermore, you will need:

    1. a smartphone, photo cam or any filming device (your blockbuster gadget) that can do film clips. The clips need to be recorded to a (micro/normal) SD card that you can physically remove from the camera and put into a laptop or card reader (that you possess). Think of all the different potential filming devices that are existing, you need to be able to get the stuff into your laptop, with a working ‘driver’. Be aware of it.
    2. a laptop (your dream factory) for editing with Davinci Resolve 11 or your own working editing suite (if you can handle that)
    3. your technical “hollywood staff” of at least 2 people (including you) – your competition team for the competition day.

How to join

Please show us your visionary talent. Give us in 15 words your inspirational answer to the question:

> The most important irrelevant fact about my life that should be “seen on screen”.

You can write a limerick as well or sing a song about it, if you feel like. Be creative! That’s what we want you to be, all the time. Or just write it down, but then only by using 15 words.

Please send your inspiring answer by mail to iifs@kratkofil.orgdeadline for this is: 10th of July.

What will happen

WORKSHOPS

We will show you in 1 morning lesson different ways and techniques how to make a story crisp & spicy. Or how to improvise on an idea. 

We will teach you the next day in 1 afternoon lesson how to make beautiful looking pictures without tons of cinema stuff, and how to set up a technical workslow, ehm, workflow. We will show you some basics of the free and availible DAVINCI RESOLVE 11, an awesome editing programme (check it out here). Please don’t start to install it during the workshop, if you like to work with it, but do that in advance, before the workshop. 

COMPETITION

The 3rd day will be the competition day. You will get 3 restrictions from us, in the morning at 10h, at the kratkofil office. Nobody will know it before. Don’t ask Darija (the lovely festival director) to tell you, she does not know. Same conditions for everybody, who wants to join the battle. 

> You will have 8 hours time to realize a film on your smart phone or any filming gadget. Be crazy and professional (be organized, with people that help you!). At 18h, we will seize the results again at the kratkofil office.

The celebration ceremony

We know that you are good. Prove it. On the ceremony, we will celebrate Your creativity! Depending on the technical possibility to show the film clip and depending on the number of results (films), a jury will do a pre-selection of the best ideas. These films will be shown on the big screen in front of the audience. And THEY will decide who wins, by applause. Let me tell you: Everyone, who works on creativity and ideas, and who will have fun and ‘professional chaos’ during these days, is a winner! 

In the end, we declare the winner of the 2nd European Vision Award. The press will hunt you, the cameras will film you, generations will remind your story later on, or something like that. 

Know it’s on you. Will You join?

(deadline 10th July, mail your proposals to: iifs@kratkofil.org)

 

 

Gernerally good (or necessary) operating conditions are:

* if you have to film outside in noisy surroundings, check out a sound recording device (even another cell phone as micro or any sd card recorder)
* be open minded for whatever comes to you(r mind) in the improvisation process.
