Event description
Film London Labs: The Future (of Film) is in Your Phone

About this Event

This event is for filmmakers who are interested in expanding their horizons beyond traditional screens and platforms. We all love watching films at the cinema or on a TV, but there’s increasingly cool story stuff happening on social platforms and in the interactive world. The good news is that writers and filmmakers’ skills are extremely transferable into this space and this Lab will be all about getting you inspired to make the move.

Charlie Shackleton’s State of the Nation: ‘Cinema’ in the Digital Age

Charlie Shackleton is a BIFA-winning filmmaker, sometimes critic and one third of Loop. Since his earlier features Beyond Clueless (2014) and Fear Itself (2015) — dealing with the ‘teen movie’ and the horror genre, respectively, through a dizzying use of archive — Charlie has been a keen observer of culture and how we engage with it, an interest he now brings to his meditations on the future of film.

With a recent video essay on our relationship to TikTok and a work at Sundance exploring the relationship between film and VR, in this session Charlie will explore all the varied ways we tell stories in 2020, and the challenges that come with capturing attention on social platforms — the future is friendly, on screens big and small.

Electric Noir on Dead Man’s Phone and Mobile Episodic Storytelling

Nihal Tharoor and Benedict Tatham are film people, who started interactive entertainment studio Electric Noir in 2017. Since then, they’ve been developing a mobile-first storytelling platform, in an attempt to reflect how traditional moving image content has changed in a world where everyone lives on a smartphone. We’ll learn more about their flagship series Dead Man's Phone – where you, the detective, investigate and solve murders through the smartphone of victims. In this session, Nihal and Benedict will unpack their insights into interactive filmmaking for mobile and explore narrative opportunities unique to this medium.

If the ticket cost is a barrier for you, get in touch and we'll see if we can help out.
