A cultural journey through film

电影文化之旅

Join China Indie Film and Shanghai International Short Film Contest www.Shanghai-shorts.com in a magical collaborative and creative journey of sight and sound. We are sponsoring a collaborative film project seeking short clips from film makers to create a cultural journey. This is a chance for film makers to explore their world and share their most creative and insightful vision of the world they see before their lens or in their mind’s eye. This is a portal to the imagination and the human soul.

加入中国独立电影和上海国际短片大赛www.Shanghai-shorts.com,感受一场具有视觉与听觉的神幻协作和创意之旅。我们正在开展一个协作式电影项目,从不同电影制作人中征集不同的电影片段,并用这些片段来创造一场电影的文化之旅。给电影制作人提供一个探索自己的世界,分享他们在镜头前和其内心最具创意和洞察力视野的机会。带你进入想象力和人类灵魂之口。

 

The Project: create less than 60 seconds of narrative film, documentary film, animation or Computer Generated Image that expresses your most powerful and concentrated filmic storytelling. These will be skillfully edited together in an effort to create a compelling collaborative work based on the best works submitted.

项目:片段长度不多于60秒,叙事片,纪录片,动画片或计算机生成图像均可,内容需要表达您最具影响和凝聚力的电影叙事。我们会选出提交的最佳作品, 巧妙地剪辑拼凑,创造一个引人注目的协作品。

The Rules:

规则:

  • The opening of the segment must start in blackness and emerge from a gateway, window or doorway (be creative in your interpretation of that definition –any type of portal works) and then either return through the same portal or a different one. It must also end in blackness. (The blackness will be the transition to other collaboration segments so it is a necessity. The easiest way is of course to have the camera lens go directly to a solid object like the door but creative solutions are acceptable)

片段开幕必须从黑屏开始, 从关口,视窗或门道开始出现(在阐释定义时要有创意 任何类型的门户,入口等等都可以),最终通过同一门户或其他门户返回。短片必须以黑屏结束。 (黑屏淡入淡出将会作为剪辑到一起的协作短片的过渡的手段,所以黑屏的出现是必要的。最简单的方法当然是让相机镜头直接进入一个坚实的物体, 比如门,但其他具有创意的方案也可以接受)

  • The format should be : HD video (full requirements upon registration.)

格式应为:高清视频(注册时将提供具体参数标准)

  • The segment can be real documentary footage (your view of “real life” outside your door), a staged narrative scene, or you can get more experimental (animation, computer generated images, special effects and VFX are allowed as are sound effects, foley sounds, underscore music or sound track songs as your see fit. * you must have the rights to all images and sound included! – ie no brands, no music you do not have the rights to EVEN IF IT IS PLAYING WHILE YOU RECORD the native sound.)

该片段可以是真实的纪录片素材(您门外的“现实生活”场景),舞台叙事场景,你也可以尝试一些比较实验性的形式(动画,计算机生成的图像,特效和视觉效果都是可以,你认为合适的音效,拟音,配乐或声音歌曲*你必须具有全部图像和声音的所有权!如无品牌,无音乐,即便一边播放,一边录下原声,也并不表示你拥有其所有权。)

  • Minimum length is 10 seconds and Maximum lengths is 60 seconds.

最短长度为10秒,最大长度为60秒。

  • Be mindful of the theme “A cultural journey through film”

铭记“电影文化之旅”主题,

The Shanghai event saw over 200 attendees at THE PLACE Shanghai and nearly 100 at its Beijing event at MODERNISTA. We would like to thank everyone who came and our sponsors for their support.

Andrej Iliev (l.) took the Final Draft Best Script Award with Voiceman and Lutz Papenfuß with Best Cinematographer.

The night in Shanghai started playing to a packed house on the rooftop of Bridge 8. There was excitement building as we watched a special selection of professional short films that were carefully chosen.

This included the content through our cooperation with the Zimbabwe International Film Festival. Pictured above is the film Seiko. We even had one film that was intended to be part of the 48 hr film contest that happened during the production time for Shanghai contest but had suffered problems recovering the camera data. We firmly believe that completed films deserve an audience.
