    Default Filmonik for Salford and Manchester Filmmakers

    I'd never heard of this until my girlfriend pointed me towards it the other day.

    "Do well with nothing, do even better with a little, and do it now!"

    I'd be interested to know if any one has done such a thing before and what they got out of it before I book a baby sitter for the week.

    Taken from their web site and abbreviated...

    '...a nine-day white knuckle ride of cinematic creation on the streets of Manchester and Salford.

    ...This is cinematic bootcamp. Over a week of flat out, peddle-to-the-metal 24/7 filmmaking, where fortune favours the brave, the quick-witted and the fast-working, where only the strong survive and the crazy obsessives flourish. If you’ve always dreamed of making “that little movie”, if only you had the time / talent / equipment, now is your chance to watch that dream crash and burn, and see something else come stumbling from the ashes

    ...we’ll provide the workspace and three separate screening venues. All you need to do is write your film, shoot your film, edit your film, and screen your film. In a week - or less. You’ll never have another opportunity like it.

    ...There’ll be access to equipment and talent, training for novices, opportunities galore for creative collaboration.'

    I havent looked at the web site but it looks terrible from the quotes.

    Why on earth you need a load of mooks to harass you into making a film escapes me totally.

    There is a section for pimping links to this sort of stuff. It's called "Pimp the Link".

    This Pre-production section is for.... "Script writing, story board design and raising finance", in other words: Pre Production.
