Big Dance Shorts – Get your film on Channel 4!

Big Dance and Channel 4 in association with BAFTA present an opportunity for choreographers and filmmakers to work together and create 5 short films to be broadcast on Channel 4 and screen to live audiences during Big Dance Week 2012.

In order to stimulate and encourage collaboration between the filmmakers and choreographers, Big Dance Shorts will offer the chance for filmmakers (directors or producers or teams thereof) and choreographers (or choreographic teams with filmmakers on board) to get their film idea commissioned.

After the initial application process, 10 projects will be selected to pitch to a panel of experts and the 5 strongest projects will receive £4,000 and a package of support to make their film, including support from a BAFTA mentor and guidance from an experienced Production Executive. The films will be broadcast on Channel 4 as part of the ‘Random Acts’ season and will also be screened as part of the Big Dance Pop-Up Cinema programme in summer 2012 at a high profile central London location.

This is an exciting opportunity to explore the unique ability of film to capture dance and communicate to mass audiences. It aims to develop the craft practice of filming dance by encouraging filmmakers to work with choreographers.

Big Dance Shorts also aims to facilitate the exchange of ideas and expertise both within the filmmaker community and between choreographers and filmmakers.
