BCM289: Co-production treaties: Successes and Gaps

  • https://www.screenaustralia.gov.au/funding-and-support/co-production-program
  • The co-production program has been put in place to encourage production and foster relationships between international filmmakers. In allowing two or more international producers to come together to make a screen project, it provides them with the opportunities to access the resources required to produce projects that will be internationally competitive. The objective of the program is to foster projects that will be truly international in terms of storytelling, budget ranges and the audiences to which they appeal.

 

 

 

 

 

BCM 332: Censorship at Home

HAVE A LOOK AT THIS CARTOON – what do you think it is trying to say/critique?

Self censorship: most powerful?

Free Speech:

WATCH Waleed Aly present on Free Speech

 

Australia – we don’t actually have a bill of rights that protects free speech – key difference from America – so a bit of a grey area, since we do not have specific legislation to protect!!

Hagerstrand’s three human constraints… and carpool karaoke with FLOTUS

  • Capability (can I get there?)
  • Coupling (can I get there at the right time?)
  • Authority (am I allowed there?)

Cinema spaces

Audience participation at cult cinema events is counter to the typical discourse on cinema viewing:

The end of cinema?

 

or the evolution of the ‘cinema event’?

Cinema as a consumption of place (see Hubbard, 2003) – Gold class, boutique cinemas.

Consider the consumption of space this week, as we ask you to plan and attend the cinema – how did Hagerstrand’s constraints come into play?

Activity and – 1st BLOG POST THIS WEEK:

Try to return to your previous interview subject and ask:

-find out how the internet is changing practices and spaces

– what kind of internet access is there (if any?) what kind/how many devices? What kind of data plans? Is there access to the NBN?

-if no internet, why? Personal choice, or difficulty accessing (either the internet, or perhaps lack of affordability of devices?)

THEN: compare this to the themes you uncovered from your TV interviews – any overlap?

Here’s a sample of ‘best practice’ from last year: https://igoogledthisname.wordpress.com/2016/08/22/the-blue-pill-leads-to-a-short-movie-but-an-enjoyable-life/

THIS WEEK’S BLOG POST  “THE PITCH”:

The final blog that you will submit next week. This should be a proposal for your final digital storytelling assignment: think about what interests you in relation to media, audience, and place? and how might you present this?
