Helpmann Academy Web Series & Short Film Project
To commemorate the 20th anniversary of the Helpmann Academy for the Visual & Performing Arts in 2014, a web series of ten three-minute episodes will be created to showcase, document and celebrate the past, present and future of the Helpmann Academy and its contribution to South Australian emerging artists since 1994.
Five filmmakers will be chosen from graduates of Flinders Screen Production and the Adelaide College of the Arts. Working under the guidance of Flinders Creations, each filmmaker and their team will produce two short films for the Helpmann Academy web series, with each video exploring a specific aspect of the support the organisation has given to emerging artists over the past 20 years.
Upon completion of these two web episodes, each team will receive a grant of $4000 to produce a short film project of their own choosing.
Applications are open to recent film graduates (up to five years out) from Flinders Screen Production and the Adelaide College of the Arts’ Advanced Diploma of Screen and Media.
Please note: the application deadline for submissions has been extended to allow as many teams as possible to apply. Submissions must be received no later than 5:00pm, Friday May 10th, 2013.
Applications must be submitted online at firstname.lastname@example.org
Please carefully read the project terms & conditions prior to lodging your submission.
