Midlands Spotlight - A Fistful of Fivers
Midlands Movies Mike finds out about a new low budget project from fellow Midlands film organisation the Outward Film Network.
With an aim to connect no/low budget filmmakers across the Midlands and London, the Outward Film Network promotes down to earth and regional filmmaking of both shorts and features.
The filmmaking organisation has been promoting zero budget films for a number of years now with a goal to lose some of the taboos around the practice. They often set challenges to writers,directors, cast and crew to shoot zero budget scripts and then subsequently screen the films to appreciative audiences.
Their latest endeavour is the exciting 'Fistful of Fivers' project where they are asking local filmmakers if they can make a film for five pounds?
With money so often being a barrier to making a film, the Outward Film Network (OFN) aim to remove that barrier and promote creativity in short films.
To that end, they’ve launched ‘A Fistful of Fivers’ and are asking that if you have a film that you want to make for £5 then send over your script to them.
If a script is one of the best five judged by OFN, they will send the filmmakers £5 to make it as well as provide support during the production and distribute it on their website and social media platforms.
They will even pay for one festival submission! To prove it can be done, here is their own £5 short…that was actually shot for just £1.50! (See YouTube clip below).
