THE MONTHLY OPEN-MIC SLIDE SLAM AT HOST – #4
Following on the heels of our successful first three nights in March, April and May we are please to invite photographers, broadcasters, designers and producers to take part in this special evening of moving visual narratives .
Perform your own six-minute short or photographic project or just sit back and enjoy the mix as Foto8's Jon Levy lines up our guest projectionists as they combine slide shows, film, music and live performance along with audience participation.
Sign up as a Projectionist
Presentations must run no more than six minutes and should incorporate live element(s), interpreted loosely. Your subject matter can be newly completed work, projects in progress, or previous productions that may now enjoy new relevance and potential within this forum. This is an opportunity to make an impact with your work and generate a response to a story that matters to you.
Carousel – Slide Slam, a book in the making
The team at Foto8, comprising editors Lauren Heinz, Max Houghton, Harry Hardie alongside founder Jon Levy and the Foto8 designers will consult with projectionists from each night to assist in making an edit that can form the basis for a Blurb book of their story. In addition Foto8 will collect the commentary and visual output from each event with a view to publishing these in a Blurb edition of its own at the conclusion of the Carousel series.
Jon Levy declares...
"Photography is communication, and the strength of images lies in the messages they can convey to their audience. Our Carousel evenings combine film, photography, typography, the spoken word, music and sound to create a truly multi-discipline, creative environment for experiencing new works by photographers, designers and the new generation of media producers. Using any means necessary to tell the story, Carousel will throw out the rulebook, open up the box, and provide a platform for documentary makers from all walks of life to share their most creative works and reach their audience."
Registration is now open for projectionists:
