The Shootout Film Festival 2006

If you are not already aware the Shoot Out Film Festival will be held again this year from Friday 7th – Sunday 9th July 2006.

A service the Shoot Out provides for its filmmakers is the Music Library. Each year the number of local songwriters/bands who submit product to the library increases. Last year we had over 50 songwriters/bands from which filmmakers could choose an appropriate piece of music for their film. Once again we are now calling out for Newcastle & the Hunter Region’s songwriters/bands to submit their recordings to the Music Library. Any style; Jazz, Classical, Pop, Country, Techno/Dance, Instrumental, World, New Age, Folk, Rock, Punk etc is excepted. In previous years, we have had a request for sound effects if anyone is interested in submitting some.

The ShootoutThe filmmakers who do not use the Shoot Out’s dubbing facilities have once again got access to the Music Library. Each year the Apple Centre kindly donates an Apple Mac computer to the Music Library. This means if there is a track the filmmaker wishes to use on their film they may burn the track to CD for a small fee. From this fee the songwriters/bands receive 80% of the fee. The filmmakers will then add the track to their film when they do their own dubbing. All artists are named in the filmmaker’s credits at the end of their film.

By allowing filmmakers who do not use the Shoot Out’s dubbing facilities access to the Music Library they will be charged a small fee of $5.00. From this $5.00 the songwriters/bands receive $4.00. The filmmakers will then add the track to their film when they do their own dubbing. You will notice on the music release form you have the choice of declining or accepting this option. In previous years if you have submitted material you still need to sign another release form for 2006. If you have not been involved with the library before we will need you to sign a release form giving the library permission to let filmmakers use your material. All forms will be available for download soon on the official website or they can be given to you via email, fax, mail or pick up. Required from you is 2 x CD’s and any promo material ie Bio, posters, fliers.

The deadline for submissions into the Music Library is Friday 23rd June 2006.
