Subject: CANNES SHORT FILM WINNER -
This summer, the director/producer Ridley Scott launched a global filmmaker competition dubbed “Tell It Your Way” following his Cannes Lions award-winning short-film project: “Parallel Lines.”
The entrants were given freedom of expression and could choose any theme ; but there were two strict rules :
1. there had to be the exact six-line dialogue as it was in the Parallel Lines films.
2. And the entries could last no longer than three minutes.
I have found that It is sometimes more freeing to have constraints like these strict rules of the entries to the project. I have found this out as an artist taking an art classes. Of all the ideas that one could choose from, it helps to have the field narrowed with a theme of assignment. Right away the focus is narrowed and easier to navigate.
Perhaps this is the message of the years to come. The world as we have known it seems to be morphing into new territory and this will help us to think differently and adapt to some of the "alarming" shifts and changes that we see now daily.
enjoy this film and thanks to my reporter in the field, Roge
