Call: Videocollaboratory workshop


We invite artists, VJs and experimental film/videomakers to a workshop to explore the potentials of a collaborative production process based on open video resources.

The workshop is organized in context of the Kallio project initiated by m-cult to produce an open video archive and participatory application on the life and environment of the Kallio district in Helsinki. The materials of the workshop are based on the first collection of clips from the Kallio archive, which workshop participants can add to in further shootings. In the workshop, participant teams will realize experimental productions which will be presented on the M2HZ and Stadi.TV channels.

The experimental process focuses on the following questions:

*open content in producing documentary or audiovisually inventive work
*the use of metadata and locative practices in video production
*the logics of remix and collaborative production

The workshop process involves two sprints, the first of which takes place on Friday, November 4 (16-20) and Saturday, November 5 (11-18). The second sprint is scheduled for November 18, date to be fixed by participants.

The ideal group size of the workshop is 8 participants. Participants will receive an artist fee on the published productions.

Send your expression of interest to ( info at m2hz net )by October 25. Please also tell us what kinds of themes and approaches to Kallio and collaborative production you are interested in!
