Description

Ffilm Cymru Wales’ latest Magnifier training event will provide filmmakers and content creators with the opportunity to explore how to effectively reach audiences and maximise revenues.

Attendees will hear from an international selection of speakers from the film, theatre, games and cross-media sectors.

Friday 27th July

11:00 Registration and coffee

11:15 Introduction

11:30 What is a Producer Anyway?

With the explosion in alternative routes to audience and an increasingly tough film financing climate, how has the role of the producer evolved? One of the world's first cross-media producers Asta Wellejus discusses with Wrexham-born producer Andy Evans ( Keeper, Julian Lennon's Everything Changes project) and former Bedlam Productions' producer Stella Nwimo (...Is it the Design on the Wrapper, Nuclear). Chaired by Ffilm Cymru's Head of Creative Business Kimberley Warner.

12:30 Working for Young Audiences

Young people are still the multiplexes' mainstay audience but remain one of the hardest demographics to reach. Games developer Chris Payne of Quantum Soup Studios discusses with Llanfairfechan-born Paula Clark of York Theatre Royal's youth 'takeover' initiative and Rhiannon Wyn Hughes of Wicked Film Festival in North Wales.


Saturday 28th July

11:00 Registration and Introduction

11:15 Finding Your Voice - in Conversation with BAFTA award-winning director Kieran Evans

Welsh director Kieran Evans has been directing shorts, documentaries, commercials and music videos for around twenty years since leaving art school and gaining initial experience with Steven Spielberg’s animation company. He co-directed the Saint-Etienne-scored feature documentary FINISTERRE, and saw his narrative short Reflection gain the advocacy of no less a figure than Abbas Kiarostami. The culmination of his lengthy track-list of music-vid collaborations with a host of innovative artists was his ‘achingly intimate’ feature portrait of Vashti Bunyan, FROM HERE TO BEFORE, which lit up the 2008 LFF, as well as his Grierson-nominated Manic Street Preachers doc 'Escape from History'. His first narrative feature, an adaptation of Niall Griffiths’ celebrated novel KELLY+VICTOR, gained him the Outstanding Debut Award at the EE British Academy Film Awards. In this session Kieron will touch upon the process of identifying your next project and the importance of establishing a brand as a filmmaker.

12:15 Masterclass: Interactive Filmmaking

Asta Wellejus was headhunted by Lars von Trier in 1997 to develop new ways of combining film, theatre, role playing and games, Asta co-founded Zentropa Interaction in 1999, producing interactive formats (Films, Games, ARG´s, Alternate Launch, Exhibition, Role plays, and Mobile learning tools). In 2007 she founded ”Die Asta Experience" to focus on digital interactive media and audience participation. In this session Asta will illustrate how to run an interactive or cross-platform project effectively utilising case studies 'Deadline Syria' and Olivia 17'.
