The Into Industry Programme - a new way to make documentary a new way to make documentary makers
OTOXO Productions is an award winning documentary production company making films about the human faces and unheard voices behind big social issues. Their films have picked up prizes at festivals across the world and featured regularly on Spanish television. Their most recent two films, La Lliga and The Basic Ingredients, released in 2011 and 2013 respectively, were screened on TV3, BTV and across the XTVL network, and picked up awards in festivals everywhere from Beirut to Toronto. They have also had great success with their documentary shorts, which have won prizes from Los Angeles to Loch Ness.
Selected participants are given a six-month training course which guides their role in the production. They are given exhaustive training in every aspect of the documentary making process, and at each stage they follow their training with a corresponding production task. Every week there are tutorials followed by a number of production tasks (done in groups). Participants will be assessed on a continual basis, and will receive written or oral feedback on every task they do. At the end of the course and production of the film, participants will receive a final written assessment and written reference from OTOXO Productions, detailing their activities and responsibilities as co-director in the production.
- Setting Description:
- If you want to become a filmmaker in a place brimming with culture, excitement, diversity, and style, and meet creative, passionate and talented young people from all over the world, then you will struggle to do better than Barcelona. You can also learn, improve or perfect your Spanish. The tutors from OTOXO Productions are native English speakers but also fluent in Spanish. Productions are designed to combine the two languages to the needs of each participant, and different production roles can be conducted by participants with different levels of Spanish, from beginner to proficient. So whether you are looking to take your first steps in learning the language or take it to the next level, our productions are ideal.
- The full price is 650 euros, but with the Into Industry Programme you can crowdfund to recoup the part or even all of your fees. We give all selected participants the option of crowdfunding to help cover the cost of their fees and many participants fund part or even all of their course through finding donations. What makes this work is the fact that the course is tied into a real production. While it would be impossible for you to ask for donations to help you go to film school, it is much more
