Different Faces Different Voices Film Festival

The Different Faces Different Voices film festival launched for the first time in 2016. It was created by the non-profit Harvard Square Script Writers, one of the oldest professional screenwriting organizations in the country in collaboration with Women in Film and Video/New England, the 3rd oldest chapter of Women in Film and Television in the world. The festival is aimed at encouraging filmmakers to explore often untold stories of the human experience.

In the first year of the film festival, the focus was on Flicks4Chicks with filmmakers of both genders challenged to write and produce a 10-minute film with strong female protagonists.

Similar to the 48 Hour Film Competition, filmmaking crews from all over the world could sign up to participate via FilmFreeway, culminating with screenings and an awards ceremony at The Brattle Theatre this month on June 29th and 30th.

Rule Boston Camera is proud to support our local filmmaking community and Flicks4Chicks as one of the sponsors of this new film festival. Learn more on the Flicks4Chicks website.

MPC Seminar: From Still To Motion, Creating Images That Move

With featured panelists including Photographers and DPs, Creative/Art Directors along with equipment from Canon and Rule Boston Camera, see details below from the MPC, visit the MPC website, or click here for a direct link to tickets.

From Still To Motion

In the media landscape, moving fluidly between still and motion photography is increasingly common in the same campaign, and often production schedule! What are the conceptual challenges and potential benefits for photographers, DPs, and directors working between capturing “a moment” and “moments of time”?

With compressed schedules and budgets, but deliverables increasing, this seminar will explore the growing trend of capturing still and moving images in the same production, and how photographers and directors make the transition.

A panel of top photographers, DPs, creative and art directors, will discuss how this impacts the philosophy of image making, creative direction, and the production that ties it all together to create remarkable campaign images and videos for clients.

Camera Demos

Specialists from Canon and Rule Boston Camera will be on hand with time for demos, networking, and hands on play with some of the latest cameras and tools from Canon.
