Calling all Northwest Filmmakers/Photographers
3 May 2011The AND Festival is offering an exciting opportunity to work with artist Mark Amerika, pioneer of internet art and creator of the world's first feature-length mobile phone filmImmobilite. Amerika's work experiments with transmedia narrative, live VJ performance, mobile media applications, and Web-based forms of interactive art. Immobilité interfaces low-tech methods of video making with more sophisticated forms of European art-house movies and asks the question, "What is the future of cinema?"
The AND festival is commissioning Mark Amerika to make a new project and he will be in the UK in May to begin shooting. We are looking for an enthusiastic, creative and responsible individual to support the artist in his shoot across the Northwest region and document this unique film making process.
