Micro Budget Feature-length film
Maintenance status: Early Development
Development Status: Proposal
Project Versions: 0.0
Project in development since: May 2011
This project is for those who would like to use their research to make a feature-length film, in comparison to writing a book from the same research.
R-Shief will place a call for submissions to produce micro budget feature-length films. Our initial call in Fall 2011 will go out to professors, students, journalists, and artists who have already developed a piece of work in context of the current Arab Spring.
R-Shief’s objective is to produce a bold and unique motion picture experience, through the latest methods of micro-budget filmmaking. R-Shief will form a committee of academics and filmmakers to make its selection . R-Shief will use the "Arab Spring" research piece as the basis of narrative film of which it will develop, produce, and distribute. R-Shief will own the project, and revenues generated by the film will be used to sustain R-Shief and to potentially fund other like projects.
Criteria for selection will include the following: 1) the research project’s unique and universal application in theme of the “Arab Spring,” 2) adherence of project with R-Shief’s objectives, 3) the project’s ability to be produced within a micro-budget, 5) overall quality, and 6) educational applicability.
At this point in time, R-Shief is not collecting submissions. A formal announcement about submission dates and the submission process will be announced shortly.
