Creative practitioners are used to having projects hinge on precarious circumstances but global lockdowns are an unprecedented issue. With shoots and funding being cancelled or postponed indefinitely, what can be done practically now to salvage ongoing projects? Is there a way to prepare or protect projects for life after lockdown?
Join filmmakers Hannah Currie and Matthew Baren as they share their experiences of modifying projects on a lockdown timeline.
Hannah Currie is an award-winning filmmaker and is currently in development on a lockdown testimonials project. Matthew Baren is a filmmaker and co-founder of queer cinema collective, CINEMQ. Based in Shanghai, he was under lockdown for the entirety of February and is now beginning to organise physical screenings again.
