New Board / This was an awesome AD
« on: February 08, 2021, 02:58:53 PM »
You can make ads awesome or horrible, both will be get famous and help your message, brand and storytelling.

Any normal ad has an expiration date.

But wildly inappropriate, low quality, original material lasts forever.....just as any expensive masterpiece.

Which one would you choose to make if you were running a wildly successful market-disrupting company like Oatly?

The normal high-budget or the no-cow one shot out of tune wonder?

( english translation on ?)


Region Värmland söker två handledare för sommarpraktik med inriktning på dokumentärfilm
Sedan 1998 har Region Värmland erbjudit sommarpraktik i film för gymnasiestuderande i första och andra årskursen. Det har handlat om olika inriktningar och genrer av film. Sommarpraktiken äger rum under fyra sommarveckor, i år mellan 23 juni - 18 juli.
Sommarpraktikanterna får sin fasta arbetsplats på Region Värmland, där finns redigeringar och annan teknik som behövs. Utifrån deltagarnas intresse och handledarnas bedömning arbetar de sedan med en dokumentärfilm där årets tema är politik. Det är supervalår i år och vi bedömer att det finns stora möjligheter att hitta idéer kring detta tema.
Nu söker vi två handledare med erfarenhet inom dokumentärfilmsområdet. Du söker genom att skriva ett brev till oss där du berättar om dig själv och vad du har för tankar om årets tema. Bifoga CV och ange gärna löneanspråk. Skicka in din ansökan senast den 28 februari till Stefan Westling, Region Värmland, Box 1022, 651 15 Karlstad. Märk kuvertet “Sommarpraktik/Film 2014”.

Mitt namn är Riccardo Penzo och jag är med i ett team som ska göra en kortfilms dokumentär där vi ska återskapa Olle Ringsfors gamla igloo resa från 1936 över Marsfjällen över en 7 dagarsperiod nu i vinter.
Varför jag kontaktar er är för att fråga om det skulle finnas ett intresse för ett samarbete med eran filmutbildning och oss då jag gissar på att era studenter behöver möjligheter att få praktik på fältet?

Resan är planerad att hållas v.16 och vi kommer färdas på skidor hela sträckan och på vägen åka dom olika topparna som OR gjorde i sin dokumentär. Vi kommer bo i igloo som vi själva bygger på plats. Det hela ska filmas och sedan redigeras osv.

Om ni tycker det hela låter intressant så ta gärna kontakt med mig.

Mvh. Riccardo Penzo

Rules of The Game / The rules of the Game
« on: November 21, 2013, 03:24:03 PM »
if anyone is interested in testing out story development game prototype, drop a line. The game is called - after the Renoir classic - The Rules of The Game. The point of the game is to construct a story plot against three opponents, using cards and dice.

HOW DO I DEVELOP AN IDEA? / What is a happy ending, really?
« on: November 21, 2013, 03:13:12 PM »
Someone asked my about happy endings recently. I love this question because I can be provocative about the answer, so I said: all drama requires a positive ending. Shock and Awe, and comebacks of this nature: "what if I want a down ending instead?"

And I answered again "nope". no can do. All drama wants a positive ending.

Notice that I dropped the word Happy altogether. "happy" is a trick-word, a root of deception because we see/mean different  things by it: Maria imagine happiness as a spiritual state of mind, body or any combination of both. Peter adds it up in material terms: I own more toys, I win.  Viktor may picture "happy" as a smile visible to everyone.  hannah may fell happy inside and no one may have ever noticed.

Drama is a code implanted in our storytelling genes. It help (forces us?) to understand life and morals as a pursuit with a direction and an outcome. Maybe more.  But Drama could not care less about happy endings, really.

History and fiction are full of dead heroes who didn't make it thru the finish line showing off their grinning teeth. In common life most disappear leaving small traces of their passing. Some leave too many. Some have left an example, a sacrifice even. A sacrifice is a positive ending, but not a happy one, think of the hero's family for example, or the weeping audience.

Death can prevent a happy ending, but all good stories are positive, no matter what happens to the hero in the end. Ever thought about that?  If you have a ? I'll be happy to dialogue with you here.

We talk about positive and negative endings in the Story Different workshop and webinars.

GETTING STARTED / What does Cinemahead make or do?
« on: March 05, 2013, 09:43:40 AM »
Cinemahead is a community of filmmakers. Think of it as an environment, a space for films and filmmakers in the making.

Who are you? Why, When, Where, How do you write, shoot, cut, make your films?  Tell us!

In this forum you can share and discuss ideas, story development, technical process, or any other aspect of filmmaking you focus on.
As an active "Cinemahead" you can both benefit from and contribute to a creative playground that is here for you.

You may be in film school, college, high-school, or making movies with your pa in the basement (can't beat that) . Maybe you read a pile of books about Eisenstein and Hitchock, or maybe none. Do you watch 4 movies a day on your phone? Do you scan the world for ideas, or just the net?  Codecs may be your thing, or your nemesis. And your next script, is it coming along? Are you awash in buzz words?  Have you memorized McKee?

Every story is different, every film is different. Learn what you can and leave the rest. Stay open to what your peers are making, and get 10.000 hours of practice in. Look for an apprenticeship. Join a film band, play together, make mistakes. Jazz it up until you put the theory and practice together.

Jerry Garcia (JGB, Grateful Dead, Legion of Mary, Old & in the Way) was once asked why he played "weird" underground music. He replied:

"We just make something of value for our community, even if it has little or no commercial potential."

looking forward to seeing you around. You can follow on Twitter @cinemahead
