Freida Films is looking for Producers and Executive Producers

London-based production company Freida Films is looking for producers and executive producers (UK and U.S. based) for our latest production, a punchy, dark and socially-relevant feature film, To Butcher a Bird

To Butcher a Bird follows the life of a young woman recovering from a messy childhood with an alcoholic parent; her story begins as she starts to discover freedom, healing and elation in boxing. New relationships force her to either take the leap into the unknown and put the past behind her, or stay stuck in the past where old habits die hard. She knows the only thing standing in her way is herself, but there's more to this decision than meets the eye. This is a film about the darkness and light that's found in transformation.

Dear Filmmakers,

I'm currently working on an ambitious and diverse project with some talented filmmakers.

Can you help us with the following?:

  • Recommending a good TV studio in London with LED screen? (if you have used them and were pleased is a plus)

  • Any experience in and/or knowledge of what size budget is needed to rent a London TV studio (with LED screen) for a reasonable price.

  • Working with Virtual Production (rates and additional info on virtual production and workflow appreciated)

  • VFX - creating floating holographic balls (rates, workflow required like e.g. camera movements & tracking elements?)

Any help & advice would be greatly appreciated!

Student looking for film industry professionals to interview

Hello all!

 

My name is Georgia, and I am a third year student at Bath Spa University, studying Film and Television Production.

 

For one of my final assignments, I have to write a research report based upon an industry topic of my choosing. The topic question I am looking to explore is ‘In What Ways Has The 2017 ‘Me Too’ Movement Impacted Women Working in the Film Industry?’ 

 

An element of this project is to carry out one or two interviews with Film Industry professionals, who can help shed light and offer some insights from their job roles and experience surrounding this topic. I believe WFTV is going to be a highly beneficial resource for my project, and would love the chance to chat with one of the members, who ideally, has also worked in fim.

 

This interview would be held and recorded over an online video call and would take around half an hour. It can be an informal chat and I will ask a few prompt questions surrounding your links to the industry and your involvement with WFTV. As mentioned, I am looking for someone with links to film only. However, I am open to hearing all sorts of experiences from women working in the industry and why they believe WFTV is a powerful resource.

 

If this is something you feel you could help me out with, please feel free to drop me an email with a little bit about yourself and how you could help. As please feel free to ask me any questions! Thank you!

Job Opportunity: Production Manager

WFTV Member, Martina Russo, is looking for a Production Manager.  

 

The short film is called "Make Me a King" and it was awarded the latest Pears Short Film Fund at UK Jewish Film. It is the story of Ari, a non-binary Jewish person who performs as a drag king, following in the footsteps of one of the first Jewish proto-drag kings, Pepi Littman. Ari's parents feel alienated by their gender presentation and their performances, but Ari still tries to connect with them over their shared traditions and their father's love for Pepi. 

 

We currently have a budget of £13.5k. We are aiming to shoot at the end of June, or possibly start of July for three or four days. We are looking for a production manager who will be there on the shoot and who can support the producer and the director ahead of the shoot, with finding locations, drawing contracts etc - and has experience of working on very small budgets. We can offer a flat fee of £800.00. 

 

The team currently includes writer Natalie Arle-Toyne, director Sofia Olins and producer Martina Russo and Claudia Marinaro. We're also working with a number of consultants including drag kings Lucy Jane Parker (aka LoUis CYfer) and Ashleigh Lobe (aka Rabbi Schmeke). 

 

You can find a bit more about the film here: https://www.gscene.com/news/make-me-a-king-wins-2021-for-pears-film-fund/ 

Call out: WFTV Member, Anna Southgate, is looking for thoughts and suggestions around violence towards women in scripts 

How do we convey the reality of women’s stories on screen without perpetuating the depiction of women as victims? What constitutes ‘gratuitous’ violence?

 

As a Script Editor I have read too many scripts that include gratuitous violence towards women - from new and experienced writers, both male and female. So insidious is the problem that we barely register these images as the drama unfolds - the legs of the dead woman spilling out of the dumpster in the background, the naked teenage girl running through the forest. But we’ve all seen them, over and over. They are so normalised on our screens.

 

And it’s not simply a question of the brutality we see, but where the emotional core of the story lies. Is the use of violence towards women a ‘plot device’ or to spice up the drama? Is the focus on her suffering or that of her family, or is the brutality towards the female character used to engender sympathy towards the male protagonist - To show how terrible it must be for him that his wife/girlfriend/mother/daughter was murdered/raped/abused?

 

‘Gratuitous’ is difficult to quantify because it is contextual. Yet we need to be asking the right questions so that writers, producers and commissioners can stress-test scripts. As an industry we have a responsibility when it comes to the stories we tell. The Bechdel Test asks a set of questions that measures the representation of women in fiction. Surely we can find a set of questions to help us weed out the depiction of gratuitous violence towards women on our screens? But what should these questions be?

 

I would welcome your thoughts and suggestions. The aim is to collate them and create a useful guide for everyone.
