Press Street’s MiniPlex Screening – Vow of Silence

Wildseeds: the Octavia Butler Emergent Strategy Collective, along with community partner PATOIS: The New Orleans International Human Rights Film Festival, present Be Steadwell’s film “Vow of Silence” on Monday, January 19th at 6:30 PM. Filmmaker Be Steadwell will be in attendance for the screening, and will facilitate a talk-back following the film.

Free and open to the public with donations being collected to support Wildseeds and the featured artist.

Be Steadwell is a songwriter and filmmaker from Washington DC.  Redefining the love song in a modern context, Be describes her music as “queer pop and soul”.  In her live performances, she utilizes loop pedal vocal layering and beat boxing to compose her songs on stage.  As she pursued her career in music, she began a career in film. Shooting and editing her own music videos, Be explored rhythm and texture in experimental film.

Vow of Silence tells the story of Jade, a heartbroken composer who takes a vow of silence to win back the heart of Isis, her true love. Utilizing music, magic and silence-Jade finds her voice in the place she least expects it. Vow of Silence is a music driven story, placing queer women of color at the center of the narrative.  In her inability to speak-Jade communicates her pain, weakness, power and joy through music.

Donations collected to support the featured artist and Wildseeds.

Joint Picture Project 3

Timecode_nola_film_festival_joint_picture_new_orleans_01

Let’s go!

Timecode:NOLA is back with our 3rd annual Joint Picture Project. The Joint Picture Project is where we throw out a theme & give all our ambitious filmmakers 3 weeks to make a 5 minute fiction short in New Orleans. We take the best 15 shorts and edit them into a concise feature-length film which premieres the Saturday night of Timecode:NOLA’s FF|3 Indie Film Fest (April 18th, 2015)

This year’s film will happen over one night in New Orleans.  Each filmmaker will be given a timeframe between 7pm to 7am. Each film must happen in New Orleans in the randomly selected time frame. Keep in mind your timeframe, and what stories would be happening at that time.  We are building a feature film, we are all in this together, so we must make this thing cohesive.  The 15 films selected will create the final feature film.  From dust till dawn a lot of trouble can happen in New Orleans.

Black & White, 5 minutes or less, set in New Orleans, and happens during your randomly selected time frame…them’s the rules…

You get 3 weeks to make 5 minutes so don’t half ass it. Rewrite your script, make sure your audio is perfect, take time with your shots, spend more than a weekend on your edit and feed your damn crew! We don’t care how nice your camera is if the story sucks. Past Joint Picture Projects have screened in film festivals around the US & Europe and are now available on dvd. The better the shorts, the better our feature, so make us proud and show us what you got.

Super 8 One Reel 2015

Timecode_nola_film_festival_Super_8_new_orleans_01

Timecode:NOLA’s 5th annual

SUPER 8 ONE REEL FILM CONTEST

The Timecode:NOLA Super 8 ONE REEL Contest is an event in which filmmakers have to shoot a movie on one roll of Super 8 film.  All of their edit decisions must be made while shooting, since the filmmaker will not see their film before it is developed (YES! it’s actually on FILM!).  Timecode:NOLA will then get the film developed and transferred, but the first time anyone will see it is at the Premiere.  Even the filmmakers will be in the dark! Flaws and all. Masterpiece or terrible.  These three and half minute black and white silent movies will be accompanied by New Movement Theater Comedian MC Chris Trew and a live film score by Ratty Scurvics, piano virtuoso.

One roll of film. Up to three minutes. Only editing in camera. Anything goes.

The guidelines are simple. You’ll come pick up your film at our Pick Up Party at the Lost Love Lounge on Friday, March 20th, and return it the following Sunday, March 29th at the Lost Love Lounge at our Drop Off Party. Then it’s time to screen the results at the Premiere on Friday, April 17th at 8PM at One Eyed Jacks (615 Toulouse Street, New Orleans, LA 70130). It’s 50 bucks to participate. That fee covers the film, processing, and HD transfer. You will receive your original film back as well as an HD file.

If you don’t have a Super 8 camera, don’t sweat it. You can borrow a camera from us on March 20th as well, so there’s no excuses for not joining in the fun. There is a $50 deposit on the camera. Return it without breaking it, and you’ll get your money back!

Aspiring Spielberg? Art school dropout? Soccer Mom? Super 8 is the great equalizer. Its easy, and fun. Anyone can play! Shoot whatever you’d like. There are no rules as to what you can put on screen, but be warned – no one is going to see the films beforehand, so if your film is under or overexposed, no one’s gonna know til it’s too late. The show must go on!

Super 8 One Reel 2015

Timecode_nola_film_festival_Super_8_new_orleans_01

Timecode:NOLA’s 5th annual

SUPER 8 ONE REEL FILM CONTEST

The Timecode:NOLA Super 8 ONE REEL Contest is an event in which filmmakers have to shoot a movie on one roll of Super 8 film.  All of their edit decisions must be made while shooting, since the filmmaker will not see their film before it is developed (YES! it’s actually on FILM!).  Timecode:NOLA will then get the film developed and transferred, but the first time anyone will see it is at the Premiere.  Even the filmmakers will be in the dark! Flaws and all. Masterpiece or terrible.  These three and half minute black and white silent movies will be accompanied by New Movement Theater Comedian MC Chris Trew and a live film score by Ratty Scurvics, piano virtuoso.

One roll of film. Up to three minutes. Only editing in camera. Anything goes.

The guidelines are simple. You’ll come pick up your film at our Pick Up Party at the Lost Love Lounge on Friday, March 20th, and return it the following Sunday, March 29th at the Lost Love Lounge at our Drop Off Party. Then it’s time to screen the results at the Premiere on Friday, April 17th at 8PM at One Eyed Jacks (615 Toulouse Street, New Orleans, LA 70130). It’s 50 bucks to participate. That fee covers the film, processing, and HD transfer. You will receive your original film back as well as an HD file.

If you don’t have a Super 8 camera, don’t sweat it. You can borrow a camera from us on March 20th as well, so there’s no excuses for not joining in the fun. There is a $50 deposit on the camera. Return it without breaking it, and you’ll get your money back!

Aspiring Spielberg? Art school dropout? Soccer Mom? Super 8 is the great equalizer. Its easy, and fun. Anyone can play! Shoot whatever you’d like. There are no rules as to what you can put on screen, but be warned – no one is going to see the films beforehand, so if your film is under or overexposed, no one’s gonna know til it’s too late. The show must go on!

Joint Picture Project 3

Joint Picture Project 3

Let’s go!

Timecode:NOLA is back with our 3rd annual Joint Picture Project. The Joint Picture Project is where we throw out a theme & give all our ambitious filmmakers 3 weeks to make a 5 minute fiction short in New Orleans. We take the best 15 shorts and edit them into a concise feature-length film which premieres the Saturday night of Timecode:NOLA’s FF|3 Indie Film Fest (April 18th, 2015)

This year’s film will happen over one night in New Orleans.  Each filmmaker will be given a timeframe between 7pm to 7am. Each film must happen in New Orleans in the randomly selected time frame. Keep in mind your timeframe, and what stories would be happening at that time.  We are building a feature film, we are all in this together, so we must make this thing cohesive.  The 15 films selected will create the final feature film.  From dust till dawn a lot of trouble can happen in New Orleans.

Black & White, 5 minutes or less, set in New Orleans, and happens during your randomly selected time frame…them’s the rules…

You get 3 weeks to make 5 minutes so don’t half ass it. Rewrite your script, make sure your audio is perfect, take time with your shots, spend more than a weekend on your edit and feed your damn crew! We don’t care how nice your camera is if the story sucks. Past Joint Picture Projects have screened in film festivals around the US & Europe and are now available on dvd. The better the shorts, the better our feature, so make us proud and show us what you got.

8pm MIRZA THE MIRACULOUS  Den of Muses (42 Architect St)

Mirza the Miraculous is a short, lo-fi, sci-fi, experimental B-movie adventure about a young woman trying to escape from a traveling circus in outer space. The film incorporates dubbed gibberish voices, abstract art, Dustbuster spaceships, remnants of Mardi Gras costumes, broken scientific instruments, Las Vegas signs, toy props, on-screen text and analog electronic music.  It’s absurd, kaleidoscopic and homemade.

11:30pm BEACON BIGFOOT  Junction  (3021 St. Claude Ave)

High school student Mars English has what he believes to be a bigfoot sighting which leads him to investigate other sightings in his area. He ends up discovering that half of his town has encountered Bigfoot. He tries not to judge the veracity of the people who have had encounters but rather takes it as a cultural phenomenon.

About Ron: One of the most prolific and recognizable artists alive today, Ron English has bombed the global landscape with unforgettable images, on the street, in museums, in movies, books and television.

English coined the term POPaganda to describe his signature mash-up of high and low cultural touchstones, from superhero mythology to totems of art history, populated with his vast and constantly growing arsenal of original characters, including MC Supersized, the obese fast-food mascot featured in the hit movie “Supersize Me,” and Abraham Obama, the fusion of America’s 16th and 44th Presidents, an image widely discussed in the media as directly impacting the 2008 election.

Directed by Chandler Wild 90 mins

6:30pm TIRED MOONLIGHT Lost Love Lounge (2529 Dauphine St. NOLA)

Born of a barefoot bike ride in the summer mountains of Montana, TIRED MOONLIGHT is a love-letter to the unpunctuated Facebook life histories of those forgotten by time and family, sleepovers and fried chicken with 4 year old girls, and a slew of phone calls from middle-aged men at 2am. They would slur as they explained how they had come to find my phone number taped to the wall of the Blue Moon bar in my small hometown. “I saw in the paper you’re makin’ a movie,” they’d say. “I wanna be star.”

Directed by Britni West  83 mins

 9pm TALL EVIL (before DUSK/DARK/DAWN) One Eyed Jacks (615 Toulouse St)

Big Charity Screens @ Joy Theater

 Hey you get another chance to checkout the New Orleans Documentary, Big Charity on Feb 27th & 28th. We loved it! Support indie Filmmaking and check it out!

Founded as a hospital for the poor, Charity Hospital began in 1736 as just a small cottage built on the goodwill of a dying French merchant. Operated by nuns of The Daughters of Charity and serving the city of New Orleans for close to 300 years, it gradually transformed into an enormous public institution – into Big Charity – and a longstanding symbol of compassion, a seemingly eternal place of safety and a beacon of hope in the community. Today the towering art deco building, closed abruptly after Hurricane Katrina hit in August 2005, stands empty, and the community continues to suffer the devastating consequences of its absence. This documentary film includes never-before-seen footage and exclusive interviews to tell the story of Charity Hospital, from its roots to its controversial closing in the wake of Hurricane Katrina. From the firsthand accounts of healthcare providers and hospital employees who miraculously withstood the storm inside the hospital, to interviews with key players involved in the closing of Charity and the opening of New Orleans’ newest hospital, Big Charity shares the untold, true story around its closure and sheds new light on the sacrifices made for the sake of progress.
