Would you like to see your film with a live soundtrack? Whirlygig Cinema are looking for experimental and artist films, music videos and animations to show at the next Making Tracks event at Rich Mix on 18th October 2012.
Funded by Arts Council England, Making Tracks is a groundbreaking event that fuses live music with moving image and provides an interactive platform on which to showcase new film talent. Whirlygig Cinema will present a diverse programme of short films alongside brand new scores, performed live on the night by The Cabinet of Living Cinema. Get a taster of the event here https://vimeo.com/44830304.
The Cabinet will use a wide range of instruments and foley (live sound effects!) to bring a fresh perspective to the films, adding a new dimension to the visuals and creating an invigorating live experience. Filmmakers hear their new score for the first time on the night and will receive a copyright-free recording of it after the event.
To qualify, your film must:
- Have a duration of less than 12 minutes
- Be recent (preferably no more than 2 years old)
- Be silent or still make sense when any existing soundtrack is removed (subtitles are accepted, but minimal dialogue is advised)
We are particularly interested in films that have never been shown in public before due to problems with music copyright. One of the aims of Making Tracks is to expose previously unseen pieces of work and give aspiring filmmakers the attention they deserve.
To submit, please fill in a submissions form (http://whirlygigcinema.com/submit/making-tracks) by Friday 21st September.

“There is intrinsic value to seeing films in a way that Making Tracks makes possible…After the first few public screenings, I never watch my own films. Making Tracks was an exception: I was looking with eyes wide open at an entirely new film being born right in front of me, and I knew I had just this one chance to see it.” Srdjan Keca, filmmaker
“Making Tracks was important to me as it allowed a short film I had made to finally be shown publicly as before I hadn't been able to afford to clear the music I originally used. It not only brought great musicians to my film and also meant that I could finally show it.” Tom Chick, filmmaker
