Metro Screen Film Industry Event

Date: Tuesday, 8th of April, 2008
Time: 5.30pm-6.30pm
Where: Cnr Oatley St & Paddington Rd

Great event that showcased a selection from 100 of their works produced annually and besides ICE, this organization is one to look out for and study for any emerging film makers out there.

I really enjoyed film works such as:

“Struggle” – Thriller 7 min 59 secs
Innocent man finds a body on the way home and starts receiving threatening phone calls
Writer/ Director – James Hunter
Made in the Cert IV in Screen course

“Natural Selection – Behind the Scenes” – Documentary 5 mins
A behind the scenes look at the making of a short film.
Director: Nicky Crowther

“Aunty Betelenut” – Documentary 8 mins 11 sec
A diverse group of Papua New Guinean women gather to partake in a timeless ritual.
Director: Natasha Henry
Made through the Multicultural Mentorship Scheme.

What I truly appreciated from these works are the high quality and the cuts used to tell the story. Particularly, the film “Aunty Betelenut” unfolded in such as unique way.
