Opportunity: Camera Buff – film commissioning opportunity for young people

Do you have ambitions to work with film? Camera Buff is Spike Island’s online commissioning strand of experimental films specifically for 16­–24 year olds based in the South West of England. This incredible opportunity offers you the support, funds and professional experience needed to develop your early ideas into a broadcast quality short film while also expanding your knowledge and experience of experimental film.

Camera Buff is a chance to explore and experiment with film production techniques and expose yourself to new ideas. You will work within the industry of moving image and contemporary visual art, meet with artists, curators, filmmakers and producers, and ultimately create your own short film. Your film has the chance to be included in a new public broadcast series currently in development for Channel 4’s Random Acts.

To apply, you need to submit an idea for a short film between 90 seconds and 3 minutes long via the application form on this page.

Send your completed application to: randomacts@callingtheshots.co.uk

Deadline for next applications is 24 October 2016.

We will run application rounds twice a year until 2018.

If you have further questions before you apply, please email us.

Camera Buff is part of the Random Acts South West Network Hub led by our partners Calling the Shots. Over the course of three years, 72 short films will be produced with 16­–24 year olds as part of this exciting opportunity.
