The film about Song Dong's 'Waste Not' made by the Barbican Young Filmmakers is now available to watch online. Commissioned by the Barbican and Guildhall we have designed and delivered a series of projects for this new group of young filmmakers. We are enjoying working with a creative and talented group of young Londoners in the inspiring environment of the Barbican building.
If you haven't seen it yet, you have until 12th June to see Song Dong's powerful installation in The Curve Gallery at the Barbican Centre. Wet your appetite by watching an intimate interview with the artist below
We have been working with our young filmmakers, Constant Pictures to create a series of VJ sets. Video Jockying - the art of mixing projected images live, sometimes on multiple screens is an opportunity for filmmakers to feel the buzz of creating work in front of a live audience opposed to sitting in the edit suite.
Working alongside our Associate VJ Francis Morgan-Giles, the young filmmakers took things one step further by remixing sounds and music as well as images. Marie-Solange made an audio-visual remix of her short documentary about Hackney that also screened on the night. Following a premiere screening of your own film with an instant remix of it is pretty groundbreaking!
Constant Pictures performed their VJ sets recently at the Discover Young Hackney closing party. Get in touch if you'd like to book them. They are pictured above with up-coming East London music artist Lil Simz. [From left to right: Sandy, Lil Simz, Marie-Solange, Jonelle, Muzzammil, Shajna]
Today we worked with a team of young people on filming a short video clip about 'Waste Not', an impressive art installation by Chinese artist Song Dong which opens at The Barbican this week. We managed to secure an interview slot at the busy press preview this morning in which we gleaned a personal insight in to the piece which is inspired by loss and family grief.
The shoot was part of a 4-day induction project, the first in a series of participation projects for young people wanting to join the Barbican's Young Filmmakers, a group we have been commissioned to set-up.
