Call for Participants for a Film [POSTPONED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE]
Call for Participants for a Film
[POSTPONED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE OWING TO FAMILY BEREAVEMENT]
Power and Service: A new film work by Laura Eldret
Artist Laura Eldret invites all residents of Swanage and surrounding areas to take part in an exciting new film artwork exploring notions of Power and Service. Individuals are invited to attend one of two creative introduction workshops led by the artist, she will introduce the story behind the art project, past examples of her work and initial ideas. Though in fact the intention is to inspire participants imaginations to invent and develop their own personal characters to dress up as or act as in the final film. The intention is that the cast of characters (participants) will embody anything from biblical to ludicrous notions of Power and Service, from a cheerleader to a man walking a dog.
Participants will then present themselves acting their character in a short film of all the participants, shot on the morning of 5th November in Prince Albert Gardens, Swanage. In addition to being part of a collective film portrait, individual photographic portraits will be taken and all participants will receive a copy of their character portrait.
No previous acting experience is required, all adults welcome!
Filming: POSTONED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE
Refreshments will be provided at the meetings and during the filming, and it is intended to be a fun social event! There is a small amount of budget to cover individuals' expenses of parking/travel and costumes/ props.
