A mentor is a guide who is there to impart their years of wisdom and to offer up their secret black book of mistakes so you don’t have to repeat them.

After a successful inaugural year, we’re excited to announce that FilmUp is back for 2014 and calling for applications!

FilmUp Mentorship continues to provide filmmaker participants 20 hours of one-on-one mentorships with acclaimed practitioners. 2013 attracted esteemed mentors including writer Neil Cross (Spooks, Luther), director Rolf de Heer (Ten Canoes, Bad Boy Bubby)and producer of over 20 feature films, Tim White.

We’re also thrilled to announce an exciting second strand, FilmUp Script Development, especially designed to up-skill those of you working with writers developing screenplays, whether you be producers, script editors, or directors.

Experienced coach and story consultant, Brita McVeigh, will be at the helm of this strand, working with participants to hone their story skills and process when collaborating with writers.

She’s a genuine collaborator. Every project is different and Brita’s skill is that she knows how to find the weak spots and strengthen them. She knows how to work closely on the script with the writer/director, or in rehearsal with the cast, to enhance the vision – that’s how she worked with Taika on ‘Boy’.

Gordon Campbell: On Chuck Berry (And James Comey, And Bill English)

Back when many people were still treating rock’n’roll as a passing fad – was calypso going to be the new thing? – Chuck Berry knew that it had changed popular music forever. What is even more astonishing is that this 30-ish black r&b musician from a middle class family in St Louis could manage to recreate the world of white teenagers, at a time when the very notion of a “teenager” had just been invented.

Howard Davis Review:
The Baroque Fusion Of L'arpeggiata

Named after a toccata by German composer Girolamo Kapsberger, L'Arpeggiata produces its unmistakable sonority mainly from the resonance of plucked strings, creating a tightly-woven acoustic texture that is both idiosyncratic and immediately identifiable. Director Christina Pluhar engenders this distinctive tonality associated with the ensemble she founded in 2000 by inviting musicians and vocalists from around the world to collaborate on specific projects illuminated by her musicological research.

Scoop Review Of Books: We’re All Lab Rats

A couple of years ago, there were reports that Silicon Valley executives were sending their children to tech-free schools. It was a story that dripped of irony: geeks in the heart of techno-utopia rejecting their ideology when it came to their own kids. But the story didn’t catch on, and an awkward question lingered. Why were the engineers of the future desperate to part their gadgets from their children? More>>
