To create a short with a creative use of colour!
What do we mean by this I hear you say?
Well, if we look at some super sweet films like American Beauty and Schindler's List we can see how colour was used to convey a message.
Check out scenes in American Beauty where red was used to create a certain mood or message. There is deliberate emphasis on others colours throughout the film such as blue and white which correlatewith the colours in the American flag.
Or an easy one is Schindler's List where they have created a film with a very limited colour palette and with a very deliberate focus on the colour red.
Then there is also film styles like that of Tim Burton who, at times has worked within a narrow colour palette.
Playing with colour can happen through the art direction of your film or in post production. Playing with colour levels can alter the mood of your film dramatically!
And remember the challenges are just optional. You can always make a film of your own choosing, if this challenge is not for you!
Films must be ready for screening on Monday 25th June at Kino #58! See you soon!
2 Male Actors

Film will be shown at The Vanishing Point Art Gallery after premiering at Kino in August.
Theme: Aftermath of sexual abuse.
Film Synopsis:The film would represent the psychological impact of this trauma on an individual. We intend to be as subtle as possible into the artistic expression in the film – as in ideally I would like the viewer to think about what he/she saw and define what it means for him/her rather than us pasting to obviously the topic in the film itself.
The film would also express a more general feeling of entrapment/enslavement from ‘the screens’; all forms of information (often very sexualised) we are bombarded with from an early age.
