SCOTTISH Company Antoine Films have received more than 200 entries for their ‘8½’ competition, a new film training, development and production scheme for Scottish filmmakers.
The scheme will produce four dramas with a running time of up to eight and a half minutes following an intensive training programme.
Placing equal emphasis on process and product, 8½ has designed a training programme suitable for Writers, Producers and Directors.
Organisers sought a wide range of drama-based short film ideas from the traditional to the more experimental forms of storytelling. The films can be shot using any medium and successful applicants will be encouraged to consider the use of new technology.
A total of £120,000 will be spent on the production of the four short films, to be developed by the producers at The Short Film Lab as part of the programme.
Applications were accepted from Scottish residents or Scottish film makers from throughout the UK.
