Shoot Out Hamilton Registrations now open!

The Shoot Out Hamilton Registrations now open!

The Shoot Out has begun! The unique short filmmaking festival that began in Australia in 1999 has now crossed the Tasman to New Zealand.

The Shoot Out Hamilton, New Zealand is on 17th – 19th September 2004.

Filmmaking is all about storytelling and that’s the fundamental idea behind The Shoot Out 24 Hour Filmmaking Festival. Grab a camera, get out there, have a go and tell a story. In 24 hours you must make a film no longer than 7 minutes in length with only in camera editing allowed and it must include 5 items selected by the organisers. It’s that simple.

Registrations for this exciting event are NOW available from the website or can be requested by calling The Shoot Out office on 07 838 3831.

This year the Newcastle, Australia Shoot Out attracted over 2000 filmmaker’s from all around Australia to compete in the only film festival that combines the tactics and discipline of survivor with the speed of the 100m finals in an arts event!

The Top 10 films from The Shoot Out Hamilton will be screened at the Awards Ceremony on Sunday 19 September at Founders Theatre. A mystery panel of judges will be on hand and the films will compete for prizes and top honours.

The top films will also be toured throughout New Zealand, Australia and the US, and the Best Film will screen in London at The Up Over Down Under Film Festival.

Ben Steel (Home and Away) says of the Shoot Out phenomenon:

“The atmosphere is just electrifying. Filmmaking is all about having a great idea, committing to it, getting out there and getting it up on screen, and The Shoot Out is the best forum for that. I can’t wait for it to kick off in Hamilton because it’s going to be just amazing!”

It’s fast, furious and fun for filmmakers with guts! So register your team now and be part of action!!

Howard Davis Article: A Musical Axis - Brahms, Wagner, Sibelius

Brahms' warm and exquisitely subtle Symphony No. 3 in F major, Wagner's irrepressibly sentimental symphonic poem Siegfried Idyll, and Sibelius' chilling and immensely challenging Violin Concerto in D minor exemplify distinct stages of development in a tangled and convoluted series of skirmishes that came to define subsequent disputes about the nature of post-Romantic orchestral writing well into the following century.
