Cross Channel Film Lab launches new training programme for European filmmakers

The Cross Channel Film Lab launches a brand new training programme, designed to help filmmakers working with visual effects and Stereo 3D transform their projects using cutting-edge technology.

Supported by Creative Europe, CCFL Training will focus on the development of low to medium budget feature films utilising VFX and Stereo 3D technologies to enhance storytelling and reach new audiences.

A core programme will offer 24 filmmakers, each with early stage feature film projects, the chance to engage in a mix of residential workshops and online seminars, masterclasses and specialist consultancy, and learn more about the intersection of visual technology and screenwriting.

Running for six months from June to November 2015, the programme is being run in collaboration with Le Groupe Ouest, Creative England and Falmouth University.

A further 24 filmmakers will be offered the chance to participate in CCFL Training’s online programme.

Pippa Best, Project Co-Director and Script Consultant for Cross Channel Film Lab said:
“In today’s cinema, visual effects, computer generated images and Stereo 3D are usually associated with high-budget Hollywood films.  

“The Cross Channel Film Lab opens this world up to European filmmakers working at a lower budget, giving them an opportunity to explore how technical elements can have a compelling impact on a film’s narrative. It is a unique chance for film-makers to work with talented experts, and create some really exciting new films.” 

Antoine Le Bos, Script Consultant and CCFL 2012-2014 Project Co-Director, said:
“New doors can be opened with new technologies and small crews, in a way that wasn’t possible 5 years ago. Bringing together accessible technology and filmmakers ready to discover new possibilities opens the door for cinema to become a source of deep amazement again.”

The previous Cross Channel Film Lab (CCFL2) project brought together eleven partners from the UK and France. Working with a range of industry experts over three years, the project explored innovative and immersive images and storytelling in low to medium budget feature films.

The successful programme looked at using Stereo 3D as a narrative tool and showed how considering visual imaging at the writing and development stages of film projects can foster creativity, efficiency and cost-effectiveness.

To mark the completion of CCFL2, and to celebrate the launch of the new training programme, twin events will be held in London (2 February) and in Paris (3 February), exploring an alternative approach to independent low to medium budget cinema.

The events will also include a screening of test material from the feature film projects which participated in CCFL2, along with some rare Stereo 3D archive material.

From its foundation as a cross-disciplinary forum where filmmakers, scientific researchers, technicians, educational institutions and industry can share skills and knowledge, the Cross Channel Film Lab is now forming new partnerships across Europe.

CCFL aims to create a consortium of SMEs, research institutes and laboratories, universities and centres of creativity, to revitalise the processes of film production and development, and provide inspiration and education in the use of VFX and Stereo 3D at lower budgets.

By doing this, CCFL hopes to broaden the scope of independent cinema, enliven European screenwriting and expand the international audience for European cinema.

Korean production in Helsinki

Early February, Korean feature film A MAN AND A WOMAN will be filmed in Helsinki. The story tells of a romantic encounter between two Korean expats in Helsinki. In the lead role stars Do-yeon Youn, a beloved actress in Korea who won the Best Actress award in Cannes 2007 for her role in SECRET SUNSHINE. The director is Yoon-ki Lee, another festival darling who signs for his sixth feature. His previous feature COME RAIN, COME SHINE ran in the Official Competition at Berlinale. The production is a Korean-Finnish-Estonian co-production handled by Bom Film Productions, a Korean production company of high repute. All elements seem to be in place for this major production to become an arthouse hit.

The shoot will feature typical Helsinki backdrops such as Hietalahden Kauppahalli, Aleksanterinkatu, Esplanadi and the National Library. The rest of the shoot is taking place in Korea.

The film’s release is planned for spring 2015 and aims for a premiere on Sundance or Berlin. Let’s see then how Helsinki looks through Asian eyes…
