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!
