David Gonzales


(Vocus) June 10, 2008

Short films about a woman who makes art out of bugs, a look at surfing on the Snake River, and profiles of ski makers and kite enthusiasts secured first prize for David Gonzales of Jackson as winner of the first Wyoming Short Film Contest. Gonzales accepted the honor in a ceremony last night at the Jackson Hole Film Festival. “I was surprised and honored to receive this recognition. It’s exciting to find out my work seems to be heading down the right path,” Gonzales said. He will be awarded $ 25,000 from the Wyoming Film Office.

“We started this contest to help promote filming in Wyoming. One of the requirements was that the storyline had to be about Wyoming somehow and David’s work was judged by a panel of Wyoming people with a wide variety of production experience,” noted Michell Howard, film office manager. Gonzales’ features were premiered in Jackson yesterday. The prize money will go toward production of his next film which will be shot in the state. Howard says the state film office received more submissions than anticipated. “We were pleased with the response and the quality of the films,” she added.

Gonzales studied screen writing in college and began his working life as a writer for the Dallas Morning News. He spent many years writing travel articles and as a still photographer. “If the way that we’re transmitting all our information these days in online then it seems like you should be trying to use the full extent of the computer’s and the Internet’s capability to communicate your message – and that’s really video,” he said. Gonzales believes he could make a full-length feature film using the prize money from the state. “I didn’t realize what the film office was doing to boost our work. It is greatly appreciated.”

Howard said the Jackson Hole Film Institute worked in partnership with her office to host classes for grip and electrical workers during the event this past week. “We have to build more of a crew base – an infrastructure. If Wyoming is going to get more film projects local resources are essential,” she said.

The main attraction for filmmakers is Wyoming’s recently instituted film incentive program which offers up to a fifteen percent rebate on production dollars spent in the state if a minimum of $ 500,000 is budgeted for a project. “The legislature believed in what we wanted to do. We were losing a lot of production to other states and countries, like Canada, and if Wyoming was going to gain back lost ground we had to level the playing field,” Howard asserted.

The short film winners are going to be available for pubic viewing on the state tourism website – www.wyomingtourism.org later this week.

Evanston, IL (PRWEB) July 13, 2006

Pawky, a short film distribution and consumer media company, today, launched its new service, pawky.com, which allows people to watch short film, upload video, and take part in an online community of filmmakers and web users alike.

“We showcase hand-picked, award-winning short film that is not readily available to the general public through any other online venue,” said Paul Birman, Pawky co-founder and Vice President of Operations. “We also provide people with a chance to organize and display their own work, which may be in the form of video, images and a variety of other mediums.”

Users watch and rate featured short films and upload their own videos from camcorders, digital cameras, cell phones and other devices. These users can, then, spread these films and their own videos to their family and friends as well as their extended online social network.

After the free and simple registration process, Pawkers, as members of the site are known, can create a customized profile, start and participate in forums, maintain a blog, add favorite films and videos to their profiles and spread these clips to others in their extended network.

The Viewer and the Critic

The number of film festivals showing short film has risen in recent years as short film’s popularity continues to grow. Other than festivals, though, the venues where filmmakers can take their innovative and original work is limited. Pawky features and distributes entertaining short films, which people might otherwise never see.

“It is like an ongoing film festival where the audience can interact with the filmmakers on their own terms,” said Alexander Oleynikov, Pawky co-founder and President. “It’s a perpetual question and answer session.”

Pawkers and web users alike can search for short films within several categories and also by tags. After they watch the film, they can rate it, write a review and contact the director or crew. These professionals maintain profiles on the site.

The Director and the Producer

The world of online video has exploded during the past few months. The web is inundated with video of everything from daily occurrences, to freak accidents to news events.

Pawky allows its members the convenience to collect and organize these videos on their profiles. Pawkers can spread these videos or keep them private, exclusively available to their friends. These videos co-exist with the professional short films featured on the site, but are distinct and separate.

“We have something that sites such as YouTube cannot offer,” added Birman. “We have professional short films that are meant to be watched and discussed.”

The Pawker

Pawky effectively fuses all the short film sites, viral video hubs and community sites into an aesthetically pleasing and intimate setting.

“Pawky houses content that you cannot see anywhere else on the web,” Oleynikov said. “It does more than simply entertain you for a minute. These films are carefully crafted and intended to make people question the world and think about issues differently, as well as entertain.”

Birman and Oleynikov said that the ideal Pawker is an individual who is not afraid to take a glimpse at the world through an artist’s eyes.

Oleynikov added, “Short film, in general, possesses the ability to take the viewer out of their own time and place, if only for a few minutes, and delve into issues and ideas that they would normally not have the opportunity to ponder.”    

About Pawky

Founded in Oct. 2005, Pawky, which dictionary.com defines as “shrewd and cunning, often in a humorous manner” in Olde English, is a web-based distribution portal for short film and video.

It also serves as an on-line community where filmmakers and Pawkers can interact, upload video to their profiles, create image galleries, post blogs, and much more. Featured Short Film and Animation is available for viewing on the home page and in a separate section of the website, with new content added weekly.

These films will be ad-supported and free for everyone, including non-members. Featured content is also distributed to such outlets as airlines, hand-held devices, on-demand TV units and other sources.

Its unique style and originality will catapult pawky.com to the top of the consumer media market.

The Dubai International Film Festival (DIFF) was first launched back in 2004 and since then has gone on to become one of the most popular film festivals in the world. The original theme; Bridging Cultures, Meetings Minds, has been a concept that has been at the forefront of the festival’s culture since the beginning and one that continues to draw people around the Middle East and beyond to enjoy the films on offer.

The vision of the film festival is to lead in building cultural understanding through creative achievement in film. This vision is something that has been attributed to the remarkable growth of the film festival both in terms of the number of films shown and the number of attendees.

From humble beginnings in 2004, the DIFF has seen its admissions more than double. In 2004 admissions were at just over 22,000 people, however, by 2008 they were close to 50,000.

Of course the success in the film industry is not only attributed to the number of spectators but also the number of industry registrants which has again more than doubled, from 750 in 2004 to more than 1800 industry members in 2008.

Alongside the plethora of film makers, script writers, actors and other industry officials, the Dubai International Film Festival also attracts attention from the press and news industry. In 2004, the number of journalists, reporters and other press registrants was a mere 450 however by 2008 this had almost tripled to a staggering 1165.

Of course for the Dubai International Film Festival, the success of the festival is not in its ability to attract industry officials or members of the press, although this is certainly a sign of its ongoing success. No, with a vision to bring cultures together under the umbrella of film, success for the Dubai International Film Festival lies in its ability to grow the number of international registrants.

In 2004, 27 countries were represented, however by 2008 this had grown to 66 a number that the DIFF is continuously trying to expand upon.

The success of the film festival has no doubt had a majorly positive impact on the already booming tourist industry. With nearly 50,000 film lovers in 2008 this helped to fill the restaurants and luxury Dubai spa hotels.

The sixth Dubai International Film Festival will run in December 2010.

Promotional tools are necessary to attract film enthusiast to watch your college short film. These tools also give your short film the chance to be recognized by short film festivals. Aside from tarpaulins, posters are also the effective tools to use in promoting your short film, because posters have the ability to communicate your information and offer great visual to your audience. If utilized properly, your posters can give your short film the attention it deserves.

•    Organize your information. Decide on the information that you want to include on your posters, so you will know where to place them. You should also know what information should come first. Knowing where the information should be placed will make it easier for you to come up with an organized over-all presentation of your posters. Try to make posters online by uploading your texts and graphics. You can also check poster templates online and get inspiration from the layouts.

•    Use legible text. Remember that your posters must be readable even from a distance, so always use readable and simple fonts. But if you have to use weird fonts for art’s sake, then make sure that the size and font color will make the texts legible.

•    Decide on the location of your posters. Look for high traffic areas in your school to make sure that the posters will get noticed. Your efforts will be put to waste if your posters are not noticeable by your audience.

•    Choose the right images. Your images should have the power to tell a story to catch your audience’s attention. Remember that the images on your poster are the first thing that your audience notices, so see to it that the images you use are powerful and eye-catching.

•    Avoid clutter. Never go overboard in designing your poster, because too many texts and images can confuse your audience. Just keep your message simple and your images limited.

•    Use harmonious colors. Be careful in combining colors, because wrong color combination can distract your audience. The appearance of your texts and visuals should also be clear and vibrant, so it is best to have your posters printed by a reputable online printer that is an expert on color prints. With their expertise in full-color printing, you can be confident that your posters will be effective promotional tools for your college short film.

This a short film from Neill Blomkamp, which the movie District 9 is based off of. Neill Blomkamp was originally set to produce the halo movie, which is now on hold indenfinitely.

New York, NY (PRWEB) March 10, 2006

Harlem Globetrotters, Panhandlers, and the China cultural revolution at Tiananmen Square rarely share anything in common – except for an Oscar Nomination. Distributed by Passion River Films, these independent films are compiled in the new DVD release: HARDWOOD / RYAN / SUNRISE OVER TIANANMEN SQUARE: Unique Award Winning Short Films.

In “Hardwood,” documentary filmmaker Hubert Davis, son of former Harlem Globetrotter Mel Davis, explores how his father’s decisions affected his life and those of his extended family. At its core, this Oscar nominated documentary validates the power of redemption and healing the bonds between father and son.

Academy Award Winner for Best Animated short film, “Ryan” is an independent film tribute to Canadian animator Ryan Larkin who produced some of the most influential animated films of his time. Today, Ryan lives on welfare and panhandles for spare change in downtown Montreal. Director Chris Landreth questions how an artistic genius can tumble into life on the streets in this animated short film.

“Sunrise Over Tiananmen Square” offers a personal documentary of political upheaval in China through a rich collage of original artwork and archival photographs. China born director Shui-Bo Wang illustrates his family’s ordeal during the Cultural Revolution, and his experience during the chaos of the Tiananmen Square uprising decades later in this Oscar nominated documentary.

This new DVD release of Academy Award nominated independent films and documentaries is available on March 28th at retailers and on-line stores nationwide.
