Producer duo, Ella Wright and Alice Ross have taken out FTI’s PitchFace and will head to the SPAA Conference in Melbourne next week to represent WA at the finals of the National Pitch Competition.

Ella and Alice’s winning project, “Men Making Babies” is a one hour TV documentary which explores the extraordinary lengths two men go to, to have a child together. Ella has experience at the National Pitch Competition having previously represented WA in 2011. Alice Ross also brings an accomplished resume having recently won the ECU Best Feature Documentary Award at the WA Screen Awards for “Hunter: For the Record”.

The National Pitch Competition is presented by FTI in association with Screen Network and the Screen Producers Association of Australia (SPAA) and generously supported by FTI partners, ScreenWest, Coopers and MadFish.

The ability to deliver a strong project pitch is a vital skill for filmmakers who are required to garner support for their projects. An important aspect of the competition is the feedback provided by the judges, about the project itself and the way the pitch was delivered. In this way the event is beneficial, not only to the participants, but also to the audience. This year, the competition is open to all types of Screen Projects including TV, transmedia or feature film concepts.

The winner of the National Finals will receive $3000 in cash and one full registration to the 2014 SPAA Conference.

Periscope Pictures Pty Ltd is proud to announce that its feature-length music documentary Hunter: For The Record, won ECU Best Feature Film – Factual at the 25th annual WA Screen Academy Awards (WASAs)
on Friday night.

Directed by Sam Bodhi Field and produced by Alice Ross, the film was also nominated for Best Direction (Long Form).

“It really is an honour to have been nominated. WA is recognised for having a strong documentary sector, so it an exciting time to be amongst that,” said Ms Ross.

“It was such an important film for us and it’s fantastic to receive such a prestigious award.”

Hunter: For The Record is a music documentary like no other. It is a raw tale of redemption and fatherhood, musical fanaticism and courage in the face of adversity.

It was made possible by the Australian Hip Hop community who got behind the team’s crowdfunding campaign, with additional funds provided by ScreenWest and Lotterywest.

The film tells the tale of Hunter who was known as the hard man of Australian Hip Hop. Like rock stars of the past, he was surrounded by a culture of excesses and hard living. When diagnosed with terminal cancer at just age 34, Hunter began to tell his fans his own story: through YouTube, philosophical daily tweets, in powerful self-shot video diaries, and in the lyrics of his songs. In a new era of entwining communication technologies, Hunter’s public fight for redemption before time runs out, is an intriguing tale of a native digital storyteller publicly narrating his own struggles.

Periscope Pictures Pty Ltd is delighted to announce that its feature-length music documentary Hunter: For The Record, will make its festival debut at the 2013 Revelation International Film Festival (RevFilmFest13) – in its hometown of Perth, Western Australia.

Hunter: For The Record is a music documentary like no other. It is a raw tale of redemption and fatherhood, musical fanaticism and courage in the face of adversity.

The film was made possible by the Australian Hip Hop community who got behind the team’s crowdfunding campaign, with additional funds provided by ScreenWest and Lotterywest.

This documentary tells the tale of Hunter who was known as the hard man of Australian Hip Hop. Like rock stars of the past, he was surrounded by a culture of excesses and hard living.

When diagnosed with terminal cancer at just age 34, Hunter began to tell his fans his own story: through YouTube, philosophical daily tweets, in powerful self-shot video diaries, and in the lyrics of his songs. In a new era of entwining communication technologies, Hunter’s public fight for redemption before time runs out, is an intriguing tale of a native digital storyteller publicly narrating his own struggles.

The film was directed by Sam Bodhi Field, written by Stefan A. Radanovich, produced by Alice Ross, associate produced by Kai McGuinness and executive produced by Karin Lutz.

According to Field, whose first short documentary Consume This! won Best Short Film at RevFilmFest06, this festival provides the perfect synergy for Hunter: For The Record.

“Making this film over the last three years has been such an incredible journey; we are really thrilled to be able to share it with Hunter’s home town at a festival of Revelation’s calibre,” said Field.

In addition to writing, Radanovich co-edited the film with Dominic Pearce. “With over 90 hours of footage, it was an emotionally complicated story to tell. Having not been involved in
the filming process, we first had to familiarise ourselves with all the footage and then figure out how best to tell his story,” said Radanovich.

“Within the first week of post, it suddenly dawned on us that Hunter’s legacy was in our hands and we took it on ourselves to make sure it was told properly. Like his passion for music and his love for his family, telling Hunter’s story became an all consuming task that took up the majority of our lives for the past year.”

Ross is also delighted that Hunter: For The Record will celebrate its film festival premiere in Perth.

“Getting Hunter’s story out into the public is something we’ve been trying to achieve for three years now, and we’re ecstatic that the fans who supported it from the very beginning get a chance to see it on the big screen,” said Ross.

RevFilmFest13 today released its full program. For tickets and session times, visit www.revelationfilmfest.org.
