    How to Get Selected for a Film Festival

    Posted on Mar 16, 2016 10:30:01 AM by Jordan Wippell in audience, in awards, in blog, in Blogs, in crowd, in digital, in Digital Video, in film, in film festival, in film freeway, in laurels, in movie, in University of Advancing Technology, in a girl walks home alone at night, in degree, in meat, in official selection, in screening, in short, in submission, in UAT, in vimeo, in withoutabox, in YouTube

    One of the most common questions I get asked when I meet other college filmmakers is; how do I get a film into a film festival? Often most filmmakers have had experience making short films, yet none have been shown or found the resources to get those films into the public eye. Now obviously getting into a film festival is only important if you want it to be and in my mind, you shouldn’t make films that seek the validation of others. There are plenty of other online options in terms of getting your film seen, however the great thing about festivals is that there is a chance to possibly win awards (and money to fund your next project) and gain real time audience feedback. These things will help you grow as a filmmaker and that in of itself is invaluable.

    Script Writing: how to writ dem words gud

    Posted on Mar 10, 2016 2:47:16 PM by Jordan Wippell in Blogs, in Digital Video, in film, in filmmaking, in movie making, in professor, in skills, in structure, in University of Advancing Technology, in class, in degree, in film school, in formatting, in screen writing, in screenplay, in sharon bolman, in short film, in UAT

    The backbone of any filmic medium is the script. When I first embarked on my endeavor to make a
    serious short film, I had no clue whatsoever about the art of script writing. My High School at the time didn’t offer any form of education related to the formatting, grammar and skills needed to write a proper film screenplay.

    I was never allowed to watch violent movies as a child. My mother did such a good job scaring me away from them that when my friends would ask to watch Child's Play at a sleepover, I would lie and say I’d already seen in it.

    From Australia to UAT: A Koala-ty Story

    Posted on Jan 27, 2016 1:56:14 PM by Jordan Wippell in Digital Filmmaking and Video Production, in Digital Filmmaking Degree, in Digital Video, in film festival, in film production, in filmmaker, in filmmaking, in international student, in movie screening, in movies, in Phoenix Film Festival, in technology college, in University of Advancing Technology, in college, in Degree in Film Production, in Film Production Schools, in Scholarship, in young filmmakers

    It was a hot Australian summer’s day as I stood next to a large production camera that was pointed at a concerned police officer. I placed my face up to the eyepiece and made sure that the focus and exposure of the shot was still correct. The journalist next to me was asking a slew of questions about a possible arson when all of a sudden a vibration in my pocket broke my concentration. I stepped back and pulled out the phone. It buzzed in my hand and the small screen displayed an international number “Unknown.” Having been at the job for almost two years, I was confident that I could answer the call without any trouble. I stepped away from the camera and put the phone to my ear. I was soon greeted by a friendly voice that stated they were from the University of Advancing Technology and that congratulations were in order for winning the Digital Video Scholarship.
