(S 1) Seminar 1: One Wildlife Film – Many Backers

Friday, Sep 14th 2018, 10.00 am, Neuer Seminarraum (Stadthallenrestaurant "Luzifer")

Moderation: Jörn Röver (Doclights Gmbh / NDR Naturfilm)

In the days of Heinz Sielmann, wildlife filming was only very occasionally supported by donations or government funding. These days, broadcasters are just one of many potential backers. With options like video platforms, trusts, film boards, worldwide distribution companies and broadcasters with online demand the situation has turned into a very complex jungle. There are new opportunities but perhaps sometimes excessive expectations. How do you turn an ambitious idea into a soundly funded world-class wildlife film?

GREEN SCREEN Wildlife Film Festival is the only German festival offering a pitching session. This is the 5th year running that filmmakers are given the opportunity to advertise their projects to producers and editors from various broadcasters and are given feedback. Many a filmmaker has been able to realize the project presented in previous pitching sessions.

Editing provides context That specifically applies to wildlife films where from hours of raw footage stories develop in the editing suite. To give the audience an understanding of animal behaviour you need sensitivity, understanding of dramatic composition and technical knowhow. That and what makes wildlife editing especially fascinating is covered by editors Karin Duecker-Eckloff and Mirco Tribanek in their presentation. And also what makes them want to rip out their hair……

 

 

Seminar 4: Sustainable Film Production

Saturday, Sept. 15th 2018, 02.00 pm, Seminarraum Stadthallenrestaurant Eckernförde

Environmentally Friendly Filming of Wildlife and Nature Films

(This event will be simultanously translated to English. Headsets are available at the entrance) 

Host: Korina Gutsche / BLUECHILDFILM plus a panel of experts

Films are made daily and each film production has an impact on our climate. That also goes for wildlife and environmental documentaries. They are extremely important because they touch people and shape public opinion. Therefore, environmental aspects are especially relevant for those productions. Whether you film with a large or a small team or what stories you tell and what species you cover, how far removed the locations are – each environmentally friendly method contributes to a positive impact.

The workshop covers some “best practice” films presenting insights and suggestions for various stages of filming, points to financial incentives by film boards and informs about the “green film passport”. We talk about the challenges wildlife films face to show the global impact of climate change on our planet.

Furthermore, the results of a study are presented demonstrating the impact of wildlife films on humans and their environmental behaviour.
