Default Digital Shorts is Back!

Want to make a short film? Talented? Have a great idea?

Then Digital Shorts is for you.

Screen East, the regional screen agency for the East of England, is pleased to announce the launch of its short film programme, Digital Shorts for 2009/10.

The Digital Shorts scheme partners the UK Film Council New Cinema Fund to enable filmmaking talent to make short digital films with professional support. They are seeking out the most innovative and talented filmmakers in the East of England, who can demonstrate they have a fresh approach to filmmaking. Films can be of any genre within live action fiction, animation and documentary.

Talent Executive, Sam Burton, will offer expert advice throughout the production from concept to screen, and will organise industry preview screenings in London and at the Cannes Film Festival. Sam Burton says: “Digital Shorts is a great opportunity to get your film made with the help of industry experts. Previous years’ filmmakers have gone on to have great success. In 2009 Screen East were delighted that filmmaker Emma Sullivan’s short film After Tomorrow was shortlisted for a Palme d’Or at Cannes and went on to win Best British Short at The Edinburgh Film Festival – it really is a great way to kick start your career!”

Screen East will be choosing seven projects for development, and producing five of those films after the development period. All films will have a cash budget of up to £12,500.
To apply, go to the Screen East website http://www.screeneast.co.uk fill in an application form and send in with all relevant support materials. Please read the guidelines carefully before applying. Deadline for applications is 5pm Monday 9th November 2009.

Who can apply?

• Filmmakers living or working full time in the East of England
• Writers or writer/directors with a story idea
• Directors or animators with an example of their work, looking for a story
• People from other fields – e.g. digital artists, games designers, TV – who want to make a short film
• An established team (writer and director, or writer, director and producer)
• Anyone else who is creative and has a strong idea for a short film.
• Producers looking to produce a short film – you may have produced a short film before, or maybe you work in another discipline, such as television or radio, or theatre.
What you will need to apply:
• Completed application and monitoring form
• A short biography (no more than one page of A4)
• A script, a 25 word summary of your story idea and a previous example of your work (if applicable)
• Directors – a showreel (if applicable) or production photos (if applicable)
• Producers – a short biography and an example of your work (if applicable)

Digital Shorts Case Studies:

Festival Success - After Tomorrow
After much success on the summer festival circuit, short film After Tomorrow will be screened as part of the short film and animation programme at the 53rd Times BFI London Film Festival on 15 and 18 October. The Digital Short was nominated for a prestigious Palme d'Or in the Short Film Official Selection at the 62nd Cannes Film Festival and won Best British Short Film at the Edinburgh International Film Festival. It was written and directed by Suffolk-based Emma Sullivan, and produced by Annalise Davis from Wilder Films.
