Halloween is coming; a time of ghosts, ghouls and things that go bump in the night. What better time for Filmonik to hold its first themed event - a special horror, Sci-Fi and fantasy "Gorilla" Micro Kabaret. Why not make those bad dreams of yours a reality? Join us for an exhilarating white knuckle ride of cinematic creation on the mean streets of Manchester and Salford!
The "Gorilla" Micro Kabaret is part creative jam session, part cinematic bootcamp: three whole days of flat out, peddle-to-the-metal 24/7 guerrilla filmmaking; a chance for filmmakers, writers, actors, musicians, artists and creatives of all types to come together in a spirit of creative collaboration, to put their inventiveness, ability to improvise and eye for an opportunity to the test, and to have fun with film.
Whatever your skill or interest, the Micro Kabaret has something to offer. For Directors, it’s a chance to hook up with actors, writers, cameramen and editors, for cameramen, sound techs and editors, it’s a chance to hone your skills in a high-pressure environment, pair up with directors, and start working as part of a filmmaking team. For writers, it’s a chance to workshop ideas with actors and get that script on screen. For musicians and composers, it’s a chance to try your hand at scoring a film, or performing on camera. For actors, it’s an opportunity to improvise and workshop characters and gain invaluable experience working with different types of directors and an array of varying dramatic roles. For every participant, it’s an opportunity to build up material for your show reels, to collaborate with new people, and network. Taking part in Mini-Kabaret films often leads to future projects and work outside of Filmonik. But you only get out of it what you put in - so get involved and push your talents to the max!
