Not long now till we get off our bloated, festive behinds and open up the ESFF for 2017! In the meantime, in true Hogmanay spirit, we always like to have a wee look back at our last edition & it’s fair to say we were pretty pleased with the Edinburgh Short Film Festival 2016. Last Autumn, we held 8 nights at the Cameo, Summerhall & the Filmhouse beginning on October 26th at a sold out Filmhouse 2, with our Japanese night - curated for us by our partners at Tokyo’s Short Short Film Festival & Asia! We welcomed lots of visiting film-makers from across the world, including Yoko Kubota from Japan whose film Imperative Shift documented the Fukishima disaster, the talented Morgane Becerril brought her Oscar qualifying,New York-set comedy The Session & Farah Nabulsi, from the Lebanon, producer of the docu-drama Today They Took My Son also paid us a visit, along with a host of film-makers from across the UK! We were pleased to host Matthew Martino, of the Matthew Martino Benevolent Fund, who talked to local film-makers about funding & thanks are also due to Chris Lindsay, BBC screenwriter & graduate of Screen Academy Scotland, who kindly gave our audiences some tips on screenwriting. Our other partnerships this year were with the lovely Sardinia Film Festival & the Scottish Documentary Institute, which allowed us to screen some of the best Sardinian shorts of 2016 & to host some terrific contemporary Scottish short docs. We awarded the Rising Star Award to the talented duo behind comedy-drama Duke’s Pursuit, Charlie & Joe Williams, while young Scots writer, XX won our Script Pitch challenge & along with XX is heading to the London Screenwriters Festival 2017! We also held 2 nights at our Italian-esque Garden Cinema in the Meadows, thanks to Elsa Boudjema & Fernando Miranda of the Pancake Kiosk for holding the event & screening films to 50 hardy souls over 2 nights. On top of all that, we held around half a dozen interviews, screened 78 films from 23 different countries & entertained 706 people over 8 nights ending with a last night party & some outstanding Retro-Americana, provided by our very own Brimstone & Blake!

 is an important part of many video business’ bottom line. It is the “bread and butter” as we often call it and as an industry is one of the more conservative parts of our business. Most productions are based around talking heads, b-roll of a product or facility, and some sort of narration and corporate sounding music. And while that might sound a little dull, there is actually a whole new world of possibilities out there for corporate videos. With the advent of sliders, brushless gimbals (think Steadicam but more versatile), aerial platforms and motion control time-lapse rigs, there are actually a multitude of options out there for a director or DP who wants to do more with his or her videos. There is a also a level of sophistication that is rising every year. We are no longer in the 80’s where cheesy spokesmen talking directly to the camera with bad tv news cinematography mentalities are sufficient. These days there is a crowded marketplace full of qualified producers and creatives that have extremely professional tools at unbelievably low costs at their disposal. Visually speaking, you can make a beautiful video pretty easily these days. So where does that leave us? As always, story is king. How you tell the message and what you help the audience walk away with is always going to trump technology. The focus and specificity with which you deliver the message is also more important than ever. This is because with all these tools at hand we run the risk of doing things because “they look cool” or using a piece of gear just because we made an investment in it. The point is to know your audience, know your objective and deliver the goods as simply and effectively as possible. Technology will continue to provide endless creative possibilities, but without good creative, they will just be possibilities.
