£2500 for artist film maker- could be you!

As part of the Greenwich Film Festival, Stream is running an open
submission, home movie/archive project that will result in a new
artist's commission to be premièred at the Vue Cinema, O2, Greenwich.

We are seeking an artist who can create an innovative short film of
between 5-10 minutes that utilises new media to transform and re-think
material submitted by the public. We are looking for an imaginative
approach to the material and narrative, and will give preference to
proposals that will take a visually radical approach to the material.
The film should use footage submitted by the public as well as archive
materials that are copyright cleared through the Greenwich Heritage
Centre.

We are looking for a poetic vision of the borough of Greenwich,
viewed through the prism of past, present and future. The selected
filmmaker should be able to think creatively about how the borough and
its residents can be represented positively through this film. There
will be a call out to the public to submit their home movie footage and
this should be used alongside any new material to create an exciting new
film. The artist must have a rough edit of the film ready by 21 June
and be prepared to make any changes to the film if deemed necessary.
The artist will also be expected to run a workshop/Q&A session at
which they will talk about how they approached the commission and their
use of archive footage and new media to create the work.

The fee for this commission is £2,500

If you are interested in applying please send a brief outline (no
more than 1 side of A4) detailing how you would approach the commission
and any initial concepts you may have. You should also send an example
of your previous work with your expression of interest no later than 4pm
Thursday 1 April to:Paul Green Stream, Rothbury Hall, Azof Street, London SE10 0EF
