lo-fi is a low budget film initiative, aimed at developing up-and-coming talent. This comprehensive programme aims to find exciting new work, by emerging filmmakers, that can be made at micro budget level. The programme is presented in two distinct phases: lo-fi phase 0.1& lo-fi phase 0.2.
lo-fi phase 0.1
Phase 0.1 will focus on the development of low budget screenplays. We are looking to develop between five and seven screenplays in three workshops over an eight month period, working with some of UK’s foremost script editors.
The workshops will include: regular script editing sessions; master classes; read-throughs with actors; budget development & packaging. We are looking for new work from emerging talent with contemporary Scottish stories. The stories should show an ambition to find an audience in the market place.
At the end of phase 0.1 the projects will be pitched to an industry panel and one project will be selected for phase 0.2 - advanced development.
lo-fi phase 0.1 is an initiative of Screen Academy Scotland, a Creative Skillset Film & Media Academy at Edinburgh Napier University, supported by BBC Scotland, Creative Scotland and Matador Pictures.
