Featured event: St Kilda Film Festival masterclass

Friday, 08 May 2015

The opening short film in this year’s St Kilda Film Festival (21-30 May) is Flat Daddy, featuring the composing talents of Guy Gross, also known for his award-winning scores for Priscilla, Queen of the Desert. For this project, Guy scored the entire film in one sitting, a technique he’ll outline for emerging film makers during a special forum on Saturday 23 May. 

“It was ‘stream of consciousness’ music… the producer and director fell in love with the music and when it came time to score the final, almost all of the original music remained untouched. It’s a real testament to trusting your guts,” Guy said.

APRA AMCOS is hosting ‘In Production’ - a forum that takes a behind the scenes look at a film at planning stage, through the shoot itself and the final edit and grade. The forum will also discuss the importance of using original music for your film project.

Flat Daddy, stars AACTA-winning actress Kat Stewart and brings to life a life­size ‘cardboard cut­out’ of an absent armed forces husband who becomes a source of obsessive family emotions.

As well as composer Guy Gross, come and meet the rest of the Flat Daddy team at this forum:

• Director Matt Holcomb, a trained method actor, talented screenwriter and director, who’s experience bridges corporate documentaries, music videos and now short films and features.
• Film Editor Trevor Holcomb who boasts a career spanning 13 years, as both editor and producer, specialising in high-end television commercials. In addition to Flat Daddy, he has also wrapped a comedy feature, The Heckler.
• Producer Annie Kinnane brings 15 years’ experience to the Forum, including a shortlisted screening at Tropfest as well as TVCs, music videos and sci-fi films.

The ‘In Production’ Forum, hosted by APRA AMCOS, will be held at St Kilda Town Hall on Saturday 23 May at 1.30pm. First in, best dressed.
