GET REEL at Sydney Film School
With the start of a new year at Sydney Film School has come a new and exciting Get Reel program in which students have the opportunity to learn more weekly about the industry they are entering into from professionals.
Get Reel opened this year on February 24 with it's Rainbow Edition. This special edition  focused on film in the LGBTQI community We were extremely fortunate to have three very special guests who were Al Jones (producer of "The Adventures of Priscilla: Queen of the Desert"), Ian Thomsen (director of "Out in the Line-Up") and Julia Billington (actress in "All About E"). In the Mardi Gras spirit the evening was filled with colour and enjoyment.
The theme for our second Get Reel which was this past Wednesday March 2 was Is Theatrical Distribution Dead? Our special guest was cinema pioneer Peter Castaldi, who took our students through an examination theatrical distribution in Australia and how to create your own distribution.
This coming Wednesday's (March 9) Get Reel theme is Managing Light- The Dop and The Gaffer. Registration is currently open for this event here. Stay tuned for many more exciting upcoming Get Reel's!
