Deal creates big screen opportunities
ScreenACT director Monica Penders is creating new pathways to the silver screen for filmmakers.
A pilot partnership with industry has
given ScreenACT scope to boost
feature film creation in the territory.
Writers and producers from across
the country are encouraged to take part
in the organisation s new development
initiative, Accelerator POD.
After soaking up industry
knowledge and honing ideas over
several weeks, participants will pitch
ideas for horror, sci-fi, thriller, action
and family genre films.
Four projects will be selected to
receive $25,000 in support funding as
part of the six-month Screen
Accelerator program so the film is
ready to be made.
The initial 10-and-a-half day
workshop, held from June until
September, will be led by The Story
Department founder Karel Segers and
other key mentors including Odin s
Eye International distributor and sales
agent Michael Farvell.
It takes people through the basic
foundations about audience, concept
analysis and pitching prior to Screen
ScreenACT director Monica
Penders said the format turned the
typical process on its head and gave
filmmakers an insight into what
audiences wanted from the get-go.
She said while it may be not all four
successful projects were put forward
by Canberrans, all were required to
produce the film in the ACT.
"Ideas can come from anywhere,"
"This is a pilot but we are hoping to
run it every year.
It s about job creation. What we
are trying to do is build a solid
production base in the ACT."
Penders said there was a upfront
cost to the development workshop but
it was a small price to pay for advice
on how to ensure films had strong
"People have to invest in their own
development," she said.
"Everyone will make connections
with industry distributors and other
filmmakers while learning how to
make sure their films have the best
chance of being watched"
A free information session will be
held on Thursday from 6pm at
Canberra Technology Park, block A
room 112. Bookings or to find out

ALBUM: ALL POSSIBLE FUTURES/ARTIST: MIAMI HORROR
Life less serious approach works second time round
Now onto album number two,
Australia s Miami Horror show you
how to have a good time.
Synthetic hooks in place -- check.
More disco experimentation first
tested on Illumination -- check. And a
bloody pleasurable album that coheres
beautifully and playfully moves from
one song to another -- check.
There is no need to take anything
seriously on All Possible Futures, just
enjoy the ride.
Dance grooves are in abundance and
the sugar pop overdose seems like just
enough without threatening to go too
far and remaining very much inviting.
You get the sense Miami Horror
learned a lot from their debut album.
They succeed by abandoning any
remote interest in taste -- the bigger,
the better, the more commercial the
greater and a whole bunch of music
meant for an American summer.
It s music to party to and it s
polished to the core.
Syncopated bass and happy
keyboards rule the planet here.
There are some slow atmospheric
songs to complement the dance songs.
This is a wise move as it builds the
anticipation for such classics as Out of
Sight, a bold journey into dance that
shows how far Australian bands have
come at mastering this genre.
