How can you incorporate Cubism? This could mean shooting multiple angles of the same subject, playing with two and three dimension space, or non-linear storytelling. These are just a few examples but are far from the only options. Let your imagination run wild using the exhibit George Braque and Cubist Still Life, 1928-1945 as inspiration!
A Kick Off Event will take place from 6-8pm on February 15, 2013 at the Mildred Lane Kemper Art Museum. Required elements for participation will be revealed at the event.
There are two options for participation:
Option 1: 10 spots available
“Still Life into Real Life”
Participants who choose this option will pick an element from a still life set at the Kick Off event. Each element will correspond to one of Braque’s pieces on display at the museum. Participants must incorporate the chosen prop and elements from the related artwork into their film, using cubist principles.
Option 2: 10 spots available
“Did Cubists Invent the Mash-Up?”
Participants who choose this option will transform a pre-existing film (provided to participants at the Kickoff) by “breaking up, analyzing and reassembling the footage into a new and abstracted form” creating a new film. Participants may also add their own footage to this work as needed to complete the piece.
All eligible films will screen at the Kemper/Steinberg Auditorium part of the museum’s Friday Nights @ the Kemper series at 8pm on April 12, 2013. All participants will receive a gift bag from the Mildred Lane Kemper Art Museum.
Top three films determined by judges will screen as part of the France at War Film Series at 7pm at the Tivoli Theatre, March 19-21, 2013.
- 1st place (Best Film) receives $500
