Three years ago my brothers and I got together to work on our first short film together; It was for the 48 Hour Film Festival in Asheville. If you're not sure how the 48 Hour Film Festival works, you essentially show up on a Friday night, draw a genre out of a hat, are given a character, prop and line of dialogue and then have 48 hours to make and turn in the film. It's a stressful but very fun way to spend the weekend. Our film that year, MALK, went on to win the Audience Choice Award as well as best use of genre, Mockumentary.
It was the story of group of guys who in an effort to feel a stronger bond with their children, began lactating. They formed the Male Lactation Koalition, or Malk for short.
The film was a hit and we still get great comments on it to this day. Since then we've gone on to win the Audience Choice award for the past two years with two separate films however the soft spot in our heart has always been for our first film together.
We then figured why do we only work together once a year for a weekend? Let's do something bigger.
This presentation would be about the start of our journey to turn our off-the-wall short film into a feature: MALK the movie. By far our most ambitious project yet, it would be a followup feature mockumentary that will tell the "where are they now" story of 5 guys who have turned their local lactation group into a worldwide movement. It will all be shot locally around Knoxville, Asheville and Bristol and will be a great way to gather our friends, family as well as every new crew connection we've made through the past few years. Just three brothers trying to make a movie while still trying to live our everyday lives.

What Actually Is Radical Cinema?
BY DUNCAN REEKIE
@ VOL 8
ON OCT 26, 2017
Filmmaker Duncan Reekie takes look at multiple strategies that make up Radical Cinema, from agit-prop to cybertopia. He describes it as "a kind of strange interlocking mesh of different factions and cultures, and some of them would deny other factions that they're radical, and some of them don't even know about some of the other factions."
How to Make a Micro-Budget Film
BY BRITTANY RAFALAK
@ VOL 1
ON MAR 15, 2018
Brittany Rafalak is an independent filmmaker who shares some useful tricks and know-how she has learned through the years for making a film on a budget. Unlike other creative artists, a filmmaker can't simply pick up a camera and start filming, so she has had to devise creative strategies to produce the films she wants, on a limited budget. Her presentation inspires us as creative artists, even those who are not filmmakers, to not let finances stop us from achieving our vision.

Certain events in life may lead you to find your true passion. But what happens once you are a filmmaker? Do you decline an offer because you do not believe in the project? Do you say no to a project because it’s not in line with your passion even though it may be a good offer or something that may boost your ego? Daniël Beckers explains why we need to protect true passion.

PechaKucha London Vol 12 - Welcome! #PKNLDN12
GET YOUR £8 TICKET HERE In July 2016 the Mayor of London launched the #LondonIsOpen campaign, sending a vibrant message to the world that London is a united city where everyone is welcome.

Taking place at London's museum of the home, the Geffrye Museum, the evening will host inspirational talks from 12 speakers on the theme of WELCOME. It also happens during London Design Festival - an annual event showcasing London's design heritage, when the world's design community comes to town. Hosting the evening is author and journalist Sarah Thompson. Among other subjects, Sarah has written about the surprising homes found in some particularly unwelcoming buildings, and about the mixed-up experience of welcoming a child into the world. Welcomed by Sarah, our 12 speakers will then offer their interpretation of the word WELCOME. In true Pecha Kucha style, each speaker has 20 seconds to talk us through 20 slides. With only six minutes to share their thoughts, talks are always fast, funny and fascinating.
