This year’s theme is “Re-Mixing Thai Culture”, care of Johnnie Walker. This theme is an invitation to think about any aspect of Thai life that you’d love to explore in an original way through your short film. It’s by no means a restriction! You may choose ANY theme for your film, and still win the top prize, but the film that speaks best to this theme will be awarded a special prize, thanks to Johnnie Walker.

We’re excited to announce that this year we are teaming up with Wonderfruit music and arts festival. Select films from this event will be shown at Wonderfruit, on the main stage, each day at midnight. Additionally Wonderfruit will offer free passes and more to filmmakers who create winning films in the following categories: Best Film, and Best Music Video, Best film about Environment and Sustainability.

Aputure is generously offering filmmakers premium gear in a couple of competition categories.

We are delighted that Epson Thailand is once again lending high end projection equipment for the screening event.

Slenderizing An Edit

Re-Editing a 60 Second film, from a 2 minute source

Valerio Morini’s second video in his series of quick lectures dedicated to technical analysis of short films. In this video Valerio focuses on the topic of editing: How to reduce a 2 minutes film to a minute without change the story. Valerio calls this process “slenderizing”. This exercise is based on the new Apple commercial for iPad titled “Homework”.

Velario takes us through the edits of the original 2 minute commercial film, and the official 1 minute version, in a Da Vinci Resolve timeline. He also creates his own 1 minute version using his own unique criteria.
