Project 50/50: Film Crew

Project 50/50: Film Crew

For this year’s Eastside Summer in Film programme, we will be offering young people the chance to make a feature-length film comprised of four short films which are threaded together to explore the theme of an imbalanced world. This Film Camp entitled Project 50/50, will offer incredible opportunities to 40 young people, across four crews, aged 18 - 24, with an equal mix of gender and social/economic/under-represented backgrounds. We are looking for participants who have had some experience in creating short films, are excellent team players, and who are both creative and passionate about filmmaking.


The brief

The films will explore the idea of a world in which one “part” of society has been completely wiped out – in one film, it could be a world without men; in another, a world without emotion, in another a world without music, without social media, without spaghetti, without whatever! We want to explore these worlds created as a result of such imbalance and decide how the stories can connect.

The process

With support from professional industry mentors, four young film crews will have the unique opportunity to create a ten-minute short film which will all combine to form a 40-minute feature length film exploring the creative and imbalanced worlds that the Project 50/50 screenwriters have scripted. Participants will take part in workshops and training alongside a process of supported pre-production with our industry mentors to create these exciting original short films, which they will shoot over four days and edit over a further four days.

In each crew there will be: Director, 1st Assistant Director, two Cinematographers, two Production Designers/Art Department, Sound/music and an Editor. The application form will ask you to specify which role you are applying for - please ensure you tailor your application accordingly.
