Submit Your Short Film to NEW SHOOTS Today!
A very happy new year to you all! We hope you enjoyed the Christmas break and have re-booted your creative batteries for January and the year ahead.
Today we open submissions for NEW SHOOTS, which is the fresh face of SHORT CUTS, our film competition which saw the pilot scheme run last year. If you want to submit, or find out more, you can visit our NEW SHOOTS page – shootingpeople.org/newshoots.
With NEW SHOOTS, we’re committed to continuing our support of shooters wanting to
take the next step in their career by offering a package of prizes which includes industry mentorship, filmmaking equipment and £1,000 in cash towards a future project. In addition, each winner will received a public screening of their film at Rich Mix in London to an audience of up to 300 people.
NEW SHOOTS will also expand throughout 2019, and in the spring, we’ll be announcing specific opportunities for our actor members, so watch this space!
We’re also very pleased to welcome back one of our 2018 sponsors, Zipcar, who now joins us as the principal sponsor of NEW SHOOTS in 2019. Zipcar were a fantastic partner during our pilot year and have continued to pledge their support to the independent filmmaker community. Hurrah!
We’re big fans of Zipcar who are an invaluable resource to filmmakers. We use them ourselves, and find the service is super useful when you need to get yourself or equipment around town or to locations outside of London. It’s simple to book a car or van using your phone or laptop and pay by the minute, hour or day. Insurance, congestion charge and fuel are all included, so it’s great for filmmakers on a budget.
As part of our partnership, Zipcar are offering all Shooters a FREE business membership, £60 driving credit to get you started and access to business rates which are up to 29% cheaper than personal plans. This is open to both individual freelancers and production companies, so is of benefit to anyone and everyone!
