Web Video Bootcamp

In November, video artists and newcomers in film-making met at CGL & ifs internationale filmschule köln for a web video bootcamp!

The NRW Creators LAB was all about the world of online videos: production structures, setup, audience development, storyboard, realisation and publishing as well as the fundamental steps of a creative web video-strategy. It was an initiative of Film- und Medienstiftung NRW and UFA LAB and was aimed at up-and-coming young producers and video artists from NRW.

On December, 2 an inspiring and productive week ended with the long-awaited award ceremony. The Jury, consisting of Shawn Bu (winner of this year’s web video prize for „Darth Maul: Apprentice“), Daniele Rizzo („Daniele and The Talented Mr. Rizzo“) and Petra Müller (Film- und Medienstiftung NRW) decided on 4 projects: The third-placed project “Gravity” won a web video grant by Film and Medienstiftung NRW endowed with 2.000 Euro. A 6.000 Euro scholarship went to the creators of “Follow you”. The top step of the winners’ podium even went to two projects: “Arbeitstitel” and “Little Things” won a 8.000 Euro scholarship! Cedric Engels, student at ifs, helped working on the project “Arbeitstitel” – and all films were edited in our CGL Science Lab!

Congratulations and all the best of luck for the realisation of these projects!

The NRW Creators LAB is an initiative of Film- und Medienstiftung NRW and UFA LAB. From 2017 on, it will be organized twice a year in Cologne. ifs and Cologne Game Lab support the event as partners.
