FINAL DELIVERY OF FOOTAGE: MONDAY, OCTOBER 1
OVERVIEW: We are looking for young emerging creatives in London, Mumbai and Delhi to feature in a promotional film that will be shown at a creative conference in Mumbai on November 21.
The conference entitled â€œCities Createâ€ is being put on by the London mayorâ€™s office (London Unlimited) and is will celebrate the creative partnerships between London and India. The event will take place from 10am â€“ 1pm and be held at Whistling Woods film school (part of the prestigious Film City in Mumbai). â€œCities Createâ€ is part of a larger series of events designed to promote relations between London and India.
CULT-GEISTâ€™S ROLE: CULT-GEIST is responsible for finding new and emerging creative talent (to feature in our promo film) and helping to program some of the dayâ€™s activity.
We need to gather footage that showcases a â€œday in the mind / lifeâ€ style of people who are the â€œnext big thingsâ€ from a wide range of creative fields from film, visual art, digital media, fashion, music, etc. It will be a personal profile as well as a showcase of creative work. We want to show the modern cultural vibrancy of London and India through the eyes of the people making it.
The format / narrative of the final film is not 100% finalized and will be determined upon receipt of all material. WE ONLY NEED FOOTAGE, the final film will be edited in-house.
SPECIFIC REQUIREMENTS: CULT-GEIST needs to find: A filmmaker, a visual artist, a dancer, a musician, someone from technology / digital media, fashion designer / stylist and a dancer / dance troupe.
1 project manager in each city (London, Delhi, Mumbai) who can deliver footage to include: – 3-5 subjects per city to be shot in their â€œcreative environmentsâ€ working and doing what they do Shots to include: o Interior and exterior shots of home / studio / office / etc. o Shots (on film & high res images where necessary) of their work etc. o Any events associated with their field â€“ rehearsals, openings, screenings, performances, etc. – Each subject will answer the following questions on camera: o Name, age, what you doâ€¦ o What inspires you? o Who are some of your influences? o What is your vision? o How has technology enabled you to do what you do? o What does it mean to be young and creative in your world? o What do you anticipate of the future? o What do hope the future brings? o How are you best equipped to deal with the future (education, training, experience, etc.)? o What are your hopes and dreams? o What is the most exciting thing about India/London at the moment?
We expect vibrant footage. Please be creative and feel free to ask more questions, shoot more than we are asking for, and put your own spin on the filming. DO NOT shoot from the same camera angle the whole time you are filming. We want the footage to be exciting and creative in its own right.
