Outcasting: Fourth Wall Commissions 2014


Deadline:
Thu May 01, 2014 17:00

Location:
United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland

Outcasting: Fourth Wall (O:4W) is the first artists’ moving image festival for Cardiff, Wales. O:4W aims to take artists’ moving image to a wider public through a number of different platforms, venues and opportunities both virtual and physical using traditional screenings, installations and site specific commissions.

In our inaugural festival we had over 500 international submissions for the screening programme and over 50 for the commissioning programme. This year we’re hoping for even more.

All artists selected will receive either a commission or a screening fee and there are no registration or submission costs for this event.

FAQ

Is there a limit on the budget for commissions?

The quick answer is yes we only have limited funds. Although when we did the first festival we kept the budget really fluid as we didn’t want to discourage artists from applying because of a set figure. Generally though we had budgets ranging from £500 to £3,000 but could go higher. It all depends on the quality of proposals as a whole. Shifting and fluid and malleable in order to get the best.

Bottom line is put what you think is reasonable and we’ll try to take it further if the idea is sound.

The festival is funded by the Arts Council of Wales Festivals fund, with support from Cardiff Council. The festival will be curated by Michael Cousin (Outcasting).

If you are interested in a commission for new site-specific work please send a brief (200 words max) outline of your practice with an additional commissioning proposal (500 words max) plus an outline budget (including a fee for the artist). The commissioning process will be based on a dialogue between the artist, the programmers and the venues. If you have an idea we will try to find a suitable space for it.with up to 5 jpegs and / or a link to your work online. If the work is only available as a data file and not online please send using the Outcasting WeTransfer (https://outcasting.wetransfer.com/) account.

Location:
Cardiff, United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland

Outcasting is working in collaboration with BBC Cymru Wales to offer an exciting residency for moving image practitioners in the News & Current Affairs department which is based in Llandaff, Cardiff.

News and Current Affairs is the biggest department in BBC Cymru Wales producing dozens of hours of programming every week. Working in Welsh and English on Television, Radio and Online, journalists and programme makers across Wales bring the most important stories of the day and bigger issues facing the nation to the living rooms, cars, computers, workplaces and smart phones of the people of Wales and people across the world.

Through news programmes such as Good Morning Wales on BBC Radio Wales, Newyddion 9 which is broadcast on S4C and online through www.bbc.co.uk/news/wales/, their news services are viewed by two thirds of adults in Wales each month.

The successful applicant will be attached to the Health News Correspondent who works bilingually across TV, Radio and Online. The resident will have 5 days of access whilst the correspondent prepares a story for broadcast which is likely to include going out filming, recording interviews, preparing graphics, writing copy for online, editing etc. They will then shadow the correspondent on the day that the story is broadcast as they move from studio to studio from early in the morning (usually 06:30) to possibly 21:30 at night (for the Welsh language ‘Newyddion 9′).

The correspondent often films his own content on a Sony Z5 cameras and records audio for Radio on a flashmic but will also use a ‘crewed camera’ for some interviews.

The selected artist will make their own response to that story or to how the media interprets or relates that story by recording and filming. The artist will need to have their own camera and recording kit, public liability insurance and will need to comply with BBC confidentiality and copyright guidelines.

The final film will then be presented on Outcasting / BBC Wales Online and also be screened at O:4W Film Festival 2014.
