Creative Entrepreneurship Salon
Goldsmiths Institute of Creative & Cultural Entrepreneurship
Overview of my career, covering games development & the Freeplay Independent Games Festival
This month Raw Shorts looks at the team you need to get your film rolling. A panel discussion with professionals and experts from across the production industry will discuss what qualities are essential when putting a team together, and what equipment you need for that crew to handle.
This will be followed by a choice of either: a masterclass in casting from the perspectives of a casting director, a producer and a director; or, if you can’t tell a fish-eye lens from a telescopic, then join our practical workshop on filmmaking kit, including cameras, lenses, sound recording devices, plus equipment you can make yourself for next to nothing (DIY steadicams, tracks and dollies).
At the end of the day there’ll be a chance to network with other young filmmakers and industry professionals.
Games & Cultural Forms
Pecha Kucha, London Game Space
A Pecha Kucha talk on the gradual adoption of presentation and collaborative practices from other cultural forms by games, and what that might mean for the future.
Show and Tell
Coney, Camden People’s Theatre
Coney, curated by Tassos Stevens, hosted by Tom Frankland
A collection of speakers from diverse backgrounds each present a short, informal show and tell on a question which inspires them. Following the success of last year’s salons on activism and systems, Coney’s Show & Tell returns to pose some interesting questions on real world systems and how we might, possibly, change them. Expect some friendly provocation and discussion over drinks.
Speakers include Mel Evans of Liberate Tate and Platform; Annette Mees, co-director of Coney; game designer Paul Callaghan and more tbc.
