Orbital London has begun! We are pleased to team up with Create11 Festival, Nokia, FujiFilm, Audio Network and StarNow, as well as Kino London, Rotoreliefs, The Smalls, and The London Short Film Festival, to announce a new competition for the 13th Rushes Soho Shorts Festival.
The motivation behind Orbital London is simple: to engage people, communities and filmmakers across the whole of London, to engage audiences beyond those in the inner city, and to engage the city’s wealth of short film clubs, societies and competitions.
To do this, we present a challenge open to all filmmakers: write, shoot and edit a three minute film, based on the premise of a journey between specific start and end points around the edge of London.
Rewards for participation will include N8 handsets from Nokia, memberships to StarNow, and access to Audio Network’s catalogue of online sound effects.
Participating film-making teams will be assigned one of 4 routes, each with a start and finish point that must feature in the finished films. Together, the routes circumnavigate London through the boroughs of Enfield, Waltham Forest, Redbridge, Havering, Bexley, Bromley,Croydon, Sutton, Kingston, Richmond, Hounslow, Hillingdon, Harrow and Barnet.
One film of each route will be chosen to be edited together and the result will be a twelve minute short which will premiere during the 13th edition of Rushes Soho Shorts in July 2011.
