Overview

This is an exciting opportunity for emerging film makers and creatives from the neurodiverse community to participate in a talent development programme in Bristol in January, February and March 2017 being run by 104 Films and Biggerhouse Film.

The aims of the programme are:

– to develop a new generation of film makers working from a voice that is underrepresented in mainstream cinema.
– to develop a wide range of development skills including animation, FX filming, puppetry, music production, editing, drama production and script development to enable the design of an individual project development plan.
– to develop an understanding of the film market and opportunities and develop strategies to get films made and build a career in the film industry.

The programme builds on the experience of developing the feature film Dawn of the Dark Fox – the first feature film directed by an autistic film maker currently in development with Creative England.

The programme
– A series of workshops covering a number of filmmaking and project development techniques including animation, FX filming, puppetry, music production, editing, drama production and scriptwriting.
– A series of weekly one to one training sessions with professional film makers focused on skills and project development and with the aim of designing individual project development plans.
– The course will culminate in a screening of work produced on the programme and a focused workshop led by 104 films on further project development and strategies for building a career in the film industry.
