Create new short action sport projects
Factory’s Prime and Fire, the world's leading action sports creative agency and publisher has teamed up with Talenthouse, a platform for creative collaborations, and the BFI, the lead body for film in the UK, have teamed up for a focus on short action sport projects. The team is inviting film- and documentary-makers to submit a 1-2 minute pitch of the story behind action, niche or specialist sports.
The call for the action sport projects is to submit a 1-2 minute pitch and 300 words in writing in order to take part in the selection. For the call 9 filmmakers will receive a production budget of £2k and the best film will receive a £10k production budget to make their story a reality, and all 10 will have their work screened at the BFI’s Future Film Festival in Feb 2015.
Judges of the call are looking for unique, undiscovered human-interest stories and mini-documentaries based around action, endurance or specialist sports. The scope is huge and can be absolutely anything from wingsuit flying, dressage, falconry, fencing and skateboarding to stories of human sporting endeavour.
The deadline for entries is August 7, 2014 at 10:00 AM. You can upload your entries via this link: https://www.talenthouse.com/i/selects.
