So yeah, if someone reading this is in Brussels then its obviously too late for you to see it, but stop by Kran Film Collective's space anyway, they got another nice street screening coming up:
Street Screening: The garden scene from Sarajevo Film Festival Film
Video by Johan van der Keuken (1993)
November, 26-27-28, 7pm-11pm
In 1993 Sarajevo had been under continuous siege for 20 months, and was about to face a second long, harsh winter. In the midst of this turbulent situation Sarajevo organized a film festival. What is the importance of film during war?

The minute I played the song (no, just a 1-minute version MP3, not the video), participants already started getting ideas. Some thought an abstract mishmash of colors, others thought Bollywood, and one person thought the old Polish ladies at the market place. I'm really interested in the results. Should be exciting, and I'm considering taking a go at it myself. Try and use this Polish atmosphere with a Nancy Ajram song and see what happens.

Seriously though, I was very impressed by their spirit. They would bounce all kinds of ideas back and forth to try and make the announcement more noticeable to the students who generally don't really look at these type of things. Funnily enough, one suggestion involved including my picture, which in my mind got me thinking about the covers of Dr. Phil's books... so I passed.
In other exciting news, I started experimenting with my first ever lino cut and totally fucked up my fingers.
Ahhh, the joys of art.

So starting tomorrow I will be setting up an intensive 7-day workshop at the Academy of Fine Art in Lodz on music-video-making focusing mostly on the interpretation of foreign sound while faced with a limitation of imagery.
Participants will be asked to create 6 to 8 shots they think best represent a popular Egyptian tune (chosen by Ganzeer). These shots can either be video-based, or static illustration or photography-based which will later be turned into basic animations and edited accordingly to the soundtrack.
Prior editing and animation knowledge not required. Participants will be taught basic editing and animation/motion-graphics techniques using Final Cut Pro and Adobe After Effects.
Workshop begins in room 208 on the second floor of the Academy on Tuesday 18/11/2008 at 12:00 PM
