The 25th Atlantic Film Festival (Sept.16-23) presents

Attack of the 50-Foot Reels
with Norwood Cheek of Flicker
an annual event in Los Angeles since 2000.

After taking Norwood's Super 8 Filmmaking Workshop on Sept.16,
9 Atlantic artists each shot a super 8 film Sept.17-18, edited-in-camera,
then w/ their soundtracks, saw the video transfers 1st time at premiere

Thursday, September 22, 2005

Park Lane 4, Halifax, Nova Scotia

ATTACK OF THE 50 FOOT REELS is a unique opportunity that gives participants a crash course designed for Super 8mm filmmaking. Developed by veteran director Norwood Cheek, this intensive workshop is a hands-on experience that involves shooting an entire roll of film, which will later premiere during the Festival. Once the participants have completed the workshop, they have two days to shoot their film, then quickly create a soundtrack while the film is being processed, all in the nick of time for the film’s premiere.

Norwood Cheek has been making Super 8 films for 25 years and teaches classes and workshops on getting the most out of this small gauge film. He started Flicker – an ongoing short film series in Chapel Hill, North Carolina -- in 1994, and brought this screening series to Los Angeles in 1997.
In 2001, he started the L.A. Attack of the 50 Foot Reels - an annual Super 8 in-camera shoot-to-show film festival first started in 1999 by James Parrish at Flicker Richmond, Virginia. Norwood publishes and writes the ‘zine, Flicker Guide to the World of Super 8 Filmmaking. He has made many Super 8 and 16mm short films and has directed more than 70 music videos for bands including SuperChunk, AFI, Ben Folds Five, French Kicks and Squirrel Nut Zippers. He directed and shot Young Rock, a documentary on the Chapel Hill music scene. He is also a musician and composes music for his short films.

5th annual ATTACK of the 50 Foot Reels
25 commissioned videos shot on super 8

Thursday, November 3, 2005

Egyptian Theatre, 6712 Hollywood Blvd., Hollywood

videos by MD Mercury, Joe Nankin, Kent Hayward, Emma Craig, John Verive, Russell Mills, Meredith Jenks, Zzalgern0n, Kimberly Grisco, Kathe Burns, Matthew Stevens, Gabriella Karolys, Josh Greenbaum, Michael Nankin, William Hall, Brian Netto, Gavin Wynn, Tommy Bernard, Kenn Scott, Randy Caspersen, Jared Anderson, Randy Kirk, Erik Deutschman, Annie Fair, Josh Barash, Paul Gyuro, Martin Blasick, Daniel Hope.

Filmmakers "shoot to show", editing their 1 reel/3 minute films "in-camera", then give the "unprocessed" film to Flicker LA. Yale Film & Video processes it & transfers it to digi-beta for viewing on the large Egyptian screen. The night of the screening will be the first time even the filmmakers will get to see their films! They give Flicker their original soundtrack, which is started with the first picture. If it works, it works. You never know what you'll get! That's the way it is with the daring and nervous filmmakers, who will all be in attendance.

Independent Filmmakers Coalition (IFC), Kansas City presents

The Bentley Film Festival - "The Bentleys"
A contest named after Bentley Super 8 cameras. Since 1993!
Coordinator - Kelly Farrar

Saturday, December 3, 2005, 7pm

Fahrenheit Gallery, 1717 W. Ninth St., Kansas City, Missouri

A contest that invites aspiring and experienced filmmakers to plan and shoot a roll of super 8 film in sequence. By November 23 the filmmakers turn in their unprocessed film, which the IFC then processes. Not even the directors see their completed films until the public screening on December 3. The uncut, unseen films make for a fun and unpredictable evening. In-camera special effects are allowed, and though filmmakers are shooting silent film, they can accompany it during the screening with a CD, or live sound.

“The Bentley contest lets filmmakers develop their pre-production skills since they must film their short movie in sequence without retakes or the ability to edit later.”
(Matthew Stevens, IFC Member, former Bentley Coordinator).
