BREAKTHROUGH FILMMAKERS CHALLENGE

Tuesday, March 31 2020

Heroes of Science: Breakthrough Filmmakers Challenge – Deadline Mar 31 – Free

Heroes of Science: Breakthrough Filmmakers Challenge represents an unprecedented partnership between leading digital entertainment news outlet TheWrap and Breakthrough Prize, the world’s largest monetary science prize, as well as the coming together of two pursuits that are too often at odds in popular culture — art and science.

Through the competition, Breakthrough Prize and TheWrap hope to identify talented filmmakers who are passionate about bringing scientific ideas to life and who have the visual storytelling skill to create short films that express the beauty and significance of these ideas, as well as the characters of the scientists who discover them. Winning candidates will have the possibility of making a film for this year’s internationally broadcast Breakthrough Prize ceremony.

“The goal of the Heroes of Science: Breakthrough Filmmakers Challenge is to encourage talented, up-and-coming filmmakers to apply their skills to showcase compelling science stories and the impressive minds behind them,” said Pete Worden, chairman, Breakthrough Prize Foundation.

“TheWrap is thrilled to partner with the Breakthrough Prize Foundation to connect top-level filmmakers with the exciting innovations in science that deserve renown,” TheWrap founder and editor-in-chief Sharon Waxman said.

The competition will open for submissions on Monday, February 3, through Tuesday, March 31.

The contest will require filmmakers to submit a creative proposal for a short film about a Breakthrough Prize laureate, highlighting their character, backstory, major discovery or impact on the world. Competitors can be inspired by a choice of potential subjects who have won the Breakthrough Prize, including mathematician Terence Tao, physicists Fabiola Gianotti, Kip Thorne, Cumrun Vafa, Shep Doeleman and the Event Horizon Telescope team as well as life scientists Ed Boyden, Joanne Chory, Jennifer Doudna, Svante Pääbo and Huda Zoghbi.

The winning film will be chosen by a jury of experts in film and science.

The winner will be awarded a $5,000 prize, and will have their work considered for a spot on the small screen. If selected, the filmmaker will receive a $25,000 budget to make a film about one of this year’s Breakthrough Prize laureates, potentially for use during the live televised ceremony in November 2020.

Contest Details

Six winning filmmakers, or teams of filmmakers, will be selected  

The Selection Committee will be comprised of TheWrap founder and editor-in-chief Sharon Waxman, award-winning filmmaker Mark Levinson, science documentary writer and Breakthrough Prize creative director Adam Rosenthal, award-winning author Lucy Hawking, Princeton University Professor of Physics and Astrophysical Sciences Jo Dunkley and a leading filmmaker to be announced.

Winners will be announced in June at TheGrill 2020, TheWrap’s annual business conference focused on the convergence between entertainment, media and technology.

DOCUMENTARY FILMMAKERS AND PHOTOGRAPHERS FOR PBS

Tuesday, March 31 2020

Seeking Documentary Filmmakers & Photographers in Virginia for “PBS American Portrait” Project

Production is seeking 2 artists with a documentarian mindset to help tell the stories of Virginia for a national storytelling project called PBS American Portrait. This project is aligned with PBS’s 50th anniversary celebration, and seeks to define what it really means to be an American today. By inviting audiences across the country to be heard and share their stories through their own words and images, PBS American Portrait will ultimately capture the state and spirit of our nation.

Everyday American people will answer specific American Portrait prompts with their own unique thoughts, words, beliefs and experiences. We will ultimately begin to find that we, as a nation, have much more in common than we realize. A few example prompts include:

  • I was raised to believe…
  • The tradition I carry on is…
  • What keeps me up at night is…
  • When I step outside my door…
  • Most days I feel…
  • I took a risk when…

PBS will create a multi-episode documentary set to air in early 2021 that will highlight the PBS American Portrait project and what it means to be an American today. The top submissions will be integrated throughout the documentary. This project has no political affiliations and will be focused on the American people, their beliefs, their traditions, and their experiences.

Talent

PBS American Portrait is seeking storytellers with a documentarian mindset to help capture stories, images, and footage that represent authentic diversity within the communities they have access to. Each storyteller has the opportunity to turn in up to 5 submissions, using their creative discretion to represent their subjects in as authentic a manner as possible. We are looking for artists who want to represent the way they see America through the people they know: utilizing image, sound, and story to capture compelling narratives and untold American stories.

This is work for hire and paid on receipt of 5 submissions ($150 total). You will be connected with a team of 100 storytellers (total) across the country: 2 in every state.
