We are so excited that our friend Simon Wilkinson is coming back to Adelaide in December, along with his colleague Myra Appannah, to deliver their course STORYHACK to our SDSW Committee members, and also to staff from Tutti Arts. STORYHACK takes the form of a game which will teach us how to use new technologies and interactivity in our work. It's going to be a fantastic learning experience for us! Thanks to Arts South Australia for supporting this project.
Our Dream It, Screen It workshop in Whyalla earlier this month was an ENORMOUS success! The Committee and the participants all agreed it was one of the best weeks they’d ever had. The end product was a short film called “Clown Crime – A Silent Musical” which will be shown at the Whyalla Film Festival in 2020. The participants were involved in every aspect of the creative process even making their own original soundtrack which was a first for SDSW. We couldn’t have done it without the amazing Country Arts SA, Whyalla City Council, YMCA LEAP, D'faces of youth arts Inc. and the Australian Government’s Regional Arts Fund.
Congratulations to SDSW Committee member Lorcan Hopper, whose film with Johanis Lyons-Reid - "The Loop" - is part of SBS's first Short Film Festival on SBS On Demand. The Loop features SDSW award winner Sam Bateman and Company AT's Kaila Pole and will premiere tonight! Well done Lorcan, you are really taking your film-making to the next level! And big love to South Australian Film Corporation for their support of this film.
Dream it, Screen it. – Learning disability led film-making. ‘Whyalla here we come…’ SDSW will be back in Whyalla in October 2019 to deliver a week-long film-making workshop – woo hoo! We know there are plenty of amazing film-makers with learning disability in the Whyalla region. Some of you may already be making films and some of you may not yet realise you can! Wherever you are at on your creative journey we can't wait to work with you. Dream it, Screen it, is made possible by the Australian Government’s Regional Arts Fund, which supports the arts in regional and remote Australia. Stay tuned for more details.
