Big Video Event in London

Videoforum Massive event over 3 days with loads of things to look at if you are in to producing moving images for any platform - there is a theatre dedicated to mobile/streaming/IPTV etc. Look beyond the sales stalls, it isn't just for production people with huge amounts of cash to spend; the seminar programme is even bigger than last year's event - I can report that it was well worth it, so should be again this year.

new Colour like.no.other ad

Fireworks, explosives and tonnes of paint. It took over 300 people 10 days to do this shoot for the next sony bravia ad. It had to be special to be able to follow the San Francisco bouncing balls, so they went to sunny Glasgow - so it's got a more gritty attitude than the balls, and the hit of colour is more intense. Yet again, everything you see actually happens - no shortcuts or CGI. The sequence is directed by Jonathan Glazer who's worked with bands like massive attack and radiohead, thru to full length feature films. The Making Of section on the site is essential viewing.

Showing off their Smalls!

Logoyellow



The winners of the inaugural Smalls awards, which, as the title suggests, aim to celebrate filmmaking for mobile phone or iPod video screens, have been announced.

The Smalls are initiated by design and production company Devilfish, and are the latest example of a creative company using a competition for subtle promotion of its services, as well, of course, as a means of showcasing new talent to the ad and production industries.

Downloading things for free? Legally? Never!

Picture_3

The Creative Archive Licence Group is a body that allows free access to film archive footage from various entities, chiefly BBC, Channel 4, the British Film Institute, etc.

If you sign up, you can download archive clips to do whatever you want with (so long as it's non-commercial). All sorts of stuff is available; news clips (international and local), Open University lectures, wildlife footage, time-lapsed photography, etc etc, and you can alter it however you want.

Given the quality of the source material, hopefully this will encourage some inventive, funny, thought provoking pieces cropping up on YouTube, rather than the usual morass of teenagers arsing around pretending to be whacky.
