FILMREEL REELFUN FUNTIMES
Monday, June 19, 2017
6:30pm – 7:30pm
FAVA Exhibition Suite
FilmReel is a digital vault for your master files, and a searchable database. Andy has been working hard on it for a few years – now it’s time for you to come let him show you how it can work for you. Why would you want to use FilmReel?
1. Do you have that sinking feeling in the pit of your stomach that you don’t know where the best master file of your work is, or if it’s properly backed up? FilmReel can solve this.
2. You owe it to your crew. The searchable database function lets you list all the people who worked on your piece. Then, when you click on their names, all the other pieces they’ve worked on, that are entered in FilmReel, will show up. When we click on Larry’s name, we want to see all the pieces he’s worked on. Come on, don’t let Larry down!
3. Uploading your work does NOT automatically make it public on FAVA TV, but that is your choice. If you tick a box, the work becomes viewable online. You can also select the option for the programming staff to be able to consider your work as other screening opportunities come up throughout the year (for example, if a guest curator at Metro Cinema wants to put FAVA shorts before features, your work would be searchable to be considered.)
This info session is FREE, please RSVP to (780) 429-1671 or firstname.lastname@example.org so we can get a sense of numbers – refreshments will be provided. FilmReel is available to FAVA members. The workshop is open to anyone who is interested.
