To apply for the 2011 Short Film Lab you need to:
Send us the following four documents:
- Written outlines of two to three ideas for short films. Write approximately half a page per idea, clearly explaining the concept and/or outlining the story that you want to develop. The ideas/stories must be suitable for short films that can be shown on the big screen. The short film ideas you submit will be the films you workshop at the lab if you are selected.
- A CV or bio
- A paragraph on what you want to gain from the Short Film Lab
- A completed Application Cover Sheet
Pay the $15 application fee. You can pay by credit card via the Script to Screen website or email email@example.com to organise an alternative method of payment.
All documents can be either emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org, or posted to: Script to Screen, PO Box 147263, Ponsonby, Auckland.
Application deadline: September 9.
Although the Short Film Lab is free, participants will need to be in Auckland for the day of the lab at their own expense.
A selection panel will read all the application material and select up to 6 applicants. All applicants will be notified and then the successful applicants will be publicly announced at the Show Me Shorts Film Festival programme launch on October 6.
Any other questions?
