Event description

Description

The official relaunch of our Screen Opps network & autumn/winter programme of activity.


Screen Opps

Creative Lancashire and They Eat Culture present the next in our series of Screen Opps events taking place across the County this Autumn.

We’ll be looking at the current local landscape for film, television, related media and the potential to develop the screen industry in Lancashire, plus what that means when you’re working in the industry. You’ll be able to access development sessions and talks from regional, national, and international screen specialists. We’re also re-booting our ‘Show and Tell’ sessions providing space for feedback on work in progress. From indie film to digital agencies to transmedia to event & marketing moving image to broadcast commissions to artists film, we’re exploring ways to help you develop your work/career here in Lancashire.


This first event looks at making films regionally, and how to get your first feature from idea to screen.

This Screen Opps season of events will be exploring:

- working with commissioners and indie companies

- brand narratives - using film to tell client stories

- interactive storytelling and platforms

- sustaining your freelance career

and will link to specialist workshops and professional development sessions with partner organisations.

More details to be announced week starting September 26th.


Please forward and share with anyone who might be interested in this programme of activity.

Part 1: Show & Tell with networking food & drinks

6pm - 7.15pm

Show and Tell hosts 3-5 short pieces of recently produced or work in progress, to get feedback from a critically and creatively engaged group of professionals and a test audience.

This first Show and Tell event will be run informally, with networking food and drinks and opportunities to feed in to how you want the events to be developed in the future. We'll let you know the projects we'll be showing in the run up to the event.

If you'd be interested in showing your work at this or a future show and tell, please get in touch film@theyeatculture.org


Part 2: THE VIOLATORS (15) with Q&A

Presented in collaboration with Redunion Films & Bulldog Films
