I’M NOT GONNA MOVE TO LA returnson Wednesday, March 5th with 9 local shorts by women directors

“If there’s specific resistance to women making movies, I just choose to ignore that as an obstacle for two reasons: I can’t change my gender, and I refuse to stop making movies.” Kathryn Bigelow

In honour of International Women’s Day, our monthly March screening is all about the femmes. Directors/producers and writers, we love making movies and we refuse to stop.

CROSS PLATFORM STORYTELLING 101 with NY Filmmaker Mark Harris

THE FUTURE OF STORYTELLING IS INTERACTIVE STORYTELLING told across multiple platforms, at the intersection of writing, filmmaking, social media, web design and new technology.

Indie Film Club Miami in collaboration with Lab Miami, brings this “creatives only” workshop, lead by New York cross platform (transmedia) producer Mark Harris. Mark is a writer, software architect and filmmaker, focused on immersive and interactive storytelling, whose interactive feature LOST CHILDREN premiered at The Film Society of the Lincoln Center in New York.

 

SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 9TH

9:30AM TO 5:00PM

AT LAB MIAMI

FREE PARKING AND SNACKS 

LIMITED TO 20 PARTICIPANTS

 

In this workshop, you will prototype immersive and interactive storytelling experiences, learning several approaches that are used in cross platform (transmedia) productions. You will come away with some platform agnostic techniques for immersing an audience in a story. The main focus is to collaborate and use your skill set and explore new ways on how to engage an audience. Throughout the day, you will test your idea on other attendees.

Imagine for a moment a writer, a filmmaker and a tech developer at a work table, creating a project together, with the end result, an immersive and interactive audience experience. It’s best if attendees come with story ideas/problems that they’re working on already. But no need to worry if you don’t, we will use some basic story structure tools to create simple ideas.

Immersive storytelling experiences have been presented at Sundance, SXSW, Toronto International Film Festival, Tribeca, the Berlin International Film Festival and their appeal has spilled over to Hollywood projects such as THE DARK KNIGHT, AVATAR and STAR TRECK, as well as TV Shows like SHERLOCK.
