Sylvia Pankhurst was a very cool suffragette who was born in Manchester and spent a lot of her early life here. On Saturday 26th October a new biography of her was launched at the People’s History Museum. See two films below made by MCFly editor Marc Hudson. And below that, the details of how to get a free short film made about your campaign/event.
FREE FILM ABOUT YOUR CAMPAIGN/EVENT
I can make a short (two to three minutes) film about your event or campaign that you can then use for publicity.
I could also help teach you how to do this yourself. (NB Am largely self-taught – I will only be able to get you to the stage of absolute novice. If you want to be any good, you’ll need to go to someone who really knows what they are doing).
Why am I doing this?
I want to get better at making films. If I don’t have deadlines/projects, it won’t happen.
I also want to encourage Manchester-based campaigning groups to use the internet while they still can.
Anything racist, sexist, homophobic or otherwise not particularly in line with my current beliefs. I reserve the right to say “nope, too busy/not interested.”
Anything that would involve travel/excessive time (more than two or so hours of shooting).
This offer will expire when I have gotten good enough at film-making for my own purposes. Don’t know when that will be, as my purposes have a way of swimming in wiggly directions like drunk porpoises.
I will, if you want, show you the final edit before uploading, and make any minor changes. I won’t do reshoots – life’s too short.
If you don’t like it, don’t share it. I reserve the right, however, to put it on my portfolio site. Probably wouldn’t though.
I will also -whether you want it or not – offer you a constructive critique of how you’ve run your event. You are free to disregard this.
