- I love film.
- I wanted an opportunity to network and build up my contacts for future projects.
- I wanted an opportunity to do some hands-on research.
- I am moving to Bristol and I figured it would be a good way to get to know some other like-minded individuals.
|Encounters 2013 Launch Event @ Creative Common|
The main festival itself does not happen until the latter half of September (17th - 22nd) and at the moment the festival is having some fringe events.
|The full festival guide can be seen here.|
Aside from volunteering for the whole of the main festival events, do not ask me how many of the fringe events I have volunteered for because I can not remember, but I will endeavour to go to as many as I can!
|Creative Common is a part of the re-development that is happening next to Bristol Temple Meads.|
There was not much for the other volunteers and myself to do at the Launch event and we were told that this was really just a chance to get everyone together. However, I used it as an opportunity for research (see Ways of Being and Ways 2 Interface) and observed the audience habits as they experienced the films.
|It was a surprisingly good turn out.|
|The screenings were held in the Creative Common circus tent.|
|The Encounters milk float.|
Encounters 2013 looks set to be a very promising experience and I look forward to doing more work as part of it!
