Make a short film during a festival from concept to screening.
This is not about proving that we can make a film, it is about making a film that will change the world, it is about accessing your deepest passions, your creative potential, and communicating it to an audience through film.
We source the core crew, cast and equipment in advance of the beginning date but remain open to new participants from the festival community or the local community until the day we commence. The principle idea is that we create the film ‘from scratch’ beginning on day one and work towards a finished edit for public viewing, at whatever time suits each festival programme.
The project begins May 5th and moves forward to several other festivals in Ireland over the course of the next year. Definately on the ‘Connections’ agenda are Mutant Space Trash Culture Review 5th to 8th May, Corona Fastnet Film Festival 26th-29th May and Kinsale Arts Week 14th-17th July.
The further layer to the project is the making of a feature length documentary of the work involved.
-Meet at the venue; the building will be significant to the work.
-Discussion and decision within the final production group on what our theme and story will involve. (Subsequently, after Trash Culture Revue this will also include viewing of the previous film in order to make a connection.)
-Workshopping of ideas in performance-crew participation expected and invited.
-Rehearsal of the final performance.
-Rehearsal of the shots necessary; to ensure that editing is as uncomplicated as possible- as few takes as can be arranged, will be arranged.
-Videography of the work.
-Editing is completed by 4pm.
-8pm (or later) Public viewing.
15 minute presentation of the process; a 5-15 minute film; and a thirty minute discussion on the film and the process, inviting audience participation. Therefore a one hour slot.
With regard the public viewing of the piece, where possible it will be presented in a film theatre. Otherwise a high definition projector, sound system and screen in the working venue.
RSVP (Red Sandstone Varied Productions);
The central philosophy of this company is that we are all connected. Our practise is to treat each event as a holistic experience where producers, performers and audience are of equal importance. The end result is a piece of art to be proud of, but it is not the paramount objective, the means by which we achieve this end is of equal importance. We harness the power of performance to generate teamwork, encourage innovative ideas and open awareness of self and our environment.
We aim to provide all who work with us with a sense of accomplishment, within an enjoyable, harmonious and exciting environment. This company offers an opportunity to become part of a functional, flexible and inspiring team, and encourages mutual respect and camaraderie. Individual skills are respected and supported to the end that all are motivated to move to ever increasing levels of success. We provide a constantly evolving environment of increasing productivity within a secure framework of proven procedures.
Our goal is to create art.
In each festival RSVP (Red Sandstone Varied Productions) will make a short film, from start to finish, to co-incide with the festival. The public are invited to join the artists involved. "Come and be part of the process of production, or, if that is not for you, come and see the finished project and hear how it all came together."
Each film is a unique creation for the festival, and part of a series called ‘Connections.’ The process will also be filmed by a second crew, to become a feature length documentary at the end of the project. Crew are also require for this part of the project. Core crew are interchangable according to availability, you can sign up for a day, or a festival, or all the festivals, that is up to you. Funding is being sought but currently the project is unfunded. Core crew are considerd to be Camera/Editor/Actor/Producer/Public Relations/Composer/Writer/Sound/Lighting if these are your areas of skill, and you care to share, then please do.
