Event Description: Brunel University London Filmmaker in Residence Scheme

Brunel University London is looking to appoint a Filmmaker in Residence as part of its 50th Anniversary celebrations during 2015/16.

The successful candidate will be an established, active professional filmmaker with a national or international reputation, who will work with a small group of undergraduate students to produce a short film that responds to the university’s history and legacy.
The filmmaker will be invited to propose an original idea for the project (to be developed in the course of the residency) but some of the themes they may want to consider include, but are not limited to: the rise of higher education institutions in the mid-sixties, the history of the university and/or the local area, ‘brutalist’ architecture, or the role of the knowledge economy in 21st century Britain.

During the residency, the filmmaker will engage with a select group of students as part of the filmmaking process, and will deliver a number of lectures/masterclasses open to all students and staff that provide insights into the project concept and the filmmaker’s own working methods. The university will make available a budget of up to £10,000 to cover the filmmaker’s fee and production costs.

The successful candidate will become part of a vibrant community of film and media practitioners and scholars in the Department of Social Sciences, Media and Communications in the College of Business, Arts and Social Sciences. She or he will have access to the university’s filmmaking equipment and a dedicated edit suite space throughout the duration of the project. She or he will also have access to a shared office space, the expertise of our technical support staff and access to the university library.
As part of Brunel’s 50th Anniversary, a number of films from the university’s own archive are being digitised, and the filmmaker will be welcome to incorporate this material into her or his own work.

As a department that prides itself on meaningful integration of theory and practice, we particularly welcome proposals that include an element of research integrated into the filmmaking activity. The successful candidate will be invited to participate in collaborative funding bids with academic staff during the residency, in order to develop the project further and potentially establish a longer-term working relationship with Brunel.
Interviews are scheduled to take place in early July, and the residency is envisaged to commence in October 2015. The completed film will be presented by the filmmaker and student
