Congratulations to the filmmakers and writers whose work has reached the shortlist for the #Impact50 feature film.
It’s been a challenge to select these films and there remain challenges in the future as there is clearly come crossover within these stories, and duplicates. And some late comer new edits that still need to be updated on the site.
We also have 'Second Chancers' category, which means we feel strongly that these films should be in the final film, but need to see how it comes together.
What does it mean if your film is not on any of these lists? We are still considering ways in which we can use all the films in one way or another. This is not a promise but an intention, as some films we feel could be included in part in the final feature film. So do please stay engaged in the process. You can of course enter these films (films not in the shortlist, second chancers and tie breakers) for festivals etc now.
The shortlist, second chancers and tie breaker films now need to start getting final edits, checking contracts, collating media... We will need your edit and media soon and we will be in touch about this.
To be clear... All of these film pass into Phase 2 where we figure out how to make a feature film from them. We plan to add to these films with a new challenge opening later in
July – watch this space!
Remember to leave your comments below.
OK drum roll!
Winners... You made it!
These films all make it into the final edit of the film, subject to filmmakers delivering what we need (footage / contracts etc).
'The Watchers', written by David Jacobson, produced by Siege Ent.
Shot in London, October 2016 on a Sony A7ii over two days and edited on Adobe Premiere Pro. We chose this script as it's cinematic, claustrophobic...
'White Liar', written by Ben Mole, produced by Core Films
Saying goodbye is as important as hearing it.
Tiebreakers... Whoah! We can't decide!
Yes its a tie breaker. At least one of each of these films will go through. We hope to find a way to bring all through, though no promises. Decisions will be made in due course. Remember we are building a feature film.
Second Chancers... still in the game!
We love all of these films, though for one reason or another we can't commit to them making it to the final film. We want to work with these filmmakers to find a way to get their work in the final film, if possible. No promises, but that is our intention, and will also be guided by the shape of the final movie. We will be in touch about getting your media and projects.
